" Her dance shows her hunger to win," he raised her hand upwards to declare her the winner of the dance competition.

But worry and trouble on her face portraying her unhappiness regarding results, she looked at the barren face of the runner up contestant and took the mic from the presenter.

"Ladies and gentlemen I want to confess something," the organizer standing at the corner of the stage gave her an intense look of anger.

"I have paid a huge amount to the organizers to win this title as the other girl was unable to do so for her low financial status," she gave her prize to the runner up girl while the crowd gave her standing ovation.

Money can give you fame and luxury but satisfaction comes only with truth.

Bitter Bread

Bitter Bread
Bread,doubleroti,pao,bun or we call it with any other name; it is the part of our breakfast which completes our daily routine. This ready to eat item is popular with egg and butter but the recent study by Centre For Science and Environment (CSE) have turned this must breakfast eatable bitter. 
CSE conducted test on various samples collected from different part of the capital belonging to different brands. They found 84% samples test positive for potassium bromate and potassium iodate after tests on 38 varieties which include Britannia,Harvest Gold,KFC, McDonalds, Domino's Pizza and Subway.

Thus we the people of modern day India are privileged to see and feel that aura and ambiance. This was my fourth trip of sightseeing in Delhi and believe me I need many more days to explore the Delhi to its fullest. 
This time I chose the places known for its haunted experiences like Bhooli Bhatiyar, Feroz Shah Kotla Fort, Rajon Ki Baoli in Mehrauli Archaeological Park, Giyas-ud-Din Tughlaq Tomb  and Tughlaqabad Fort.The scorching heat of next day of heat digested all our energy so we also visited Indira Gandhi Memorial an all air conditioned museum which rejuvenated us. Since it was not far from Safdurjung Tomb we also give a visit to that place also.
