Childhood Chapters

Childhood Chapters

As we keep on unfolding the different chapters in life we realized the importance of stories listened and read in childhood. They have built our moral character and have taught many lessons we didn't notice then but observes their importance today when we are grown up. In childhood we learn everything by heart that's why impressions of them remain there forever in us. I too have listened and read many stories such as 'The Rabbit and The Tortoise' , The Sour Grapes, The Thirsty Crow, The Goose That Laid Golden Eggs, The Lion and The Mouse,etc and I am sure that all of you have also read or listened them in your childhood and by just mentioning their name I have recalled you the morals behind them.

Today T- Series have made these stories along with many nursery rhymes into beautiful animation videos. Children like cartoons, teaching with such animations would be a fun activity for the parents. The Tia and Tofu characters used in narrating stories are very likable and Tulsi Kumar's voice is soothing and lovable for children. Out of above mentioned stories The Thirsty Crow and The Goose That Laid Golden Eggs are stories with which I can associate few things of my childhood.

The Thirsty Crow or The Clever Crow teaches us that if you think and work hard nothing is impossible. When I was in class 2 ,while playing cricket our ball fell into a deep hole in our colony park made by iron rod used to erect tents for marriages or such occasions. When our small hands didn't reach the ball I put water in the hole and ball comes up all thanks to this story. Even today I never lose hope in any situation and tries to find the solution for the same.

The Goose That Laid Golden Eggs teaches us two things don't act in haste and don't be greedy. I remembered once when I was a kid I told this story to one of my friend who was keen to grab all chocolates from another friend who brought them to distribute on his birthday, but sadly he didn't listen. The birthday boy complained to the teacher and she told to distribute chocolates among the class except to him who tried to snatch them. Although he gave one to him after the class. Now I think it is the moral attached to this story which made me retold this when I saw someone acting greedy. I told such story to my nephews and nieces and they listened them with full attention. I hope they will also remember them when required.

I am thinking to show these videos to them now because visual images stays longer in our minds and leaves stronger impressions than verbal images.

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. These revelations are shocking and disturbing as all of us have eaten from one of these brands. It should also be noted that these two substances which are used to soften breads and enhance their color and texture namely potassium bromate and potassium iodate are banned in many countries of the world after a study conducted in the 90's. These substances however are not harmful a…

Braid Cutting - Truth or Rumors?

Braid Cutting - Truth or Rumor?

Mysterious braid (choti) cutting incidents has happened in Rajasthan, Haryana and Delhi where women mostly around 50 years of age has their braids cut without their knowledge by some invisible source causing fear among women in these areas. Women also fell unconscious during the time of braid cutting which left them clueless about the attacker and made the incident mysterious. Police who have recorded the statements of victims deny any black magic involved in this which is rumored in the video circulated in social media groups. They are asserting that some miscreants are behind the incident.
The video allegedly claims that a woman is on a mission to cut 1008 women braids in order to get invisibility power according to a black magic ritual. I heard this news around a month ago from someone whose relatives live in Rajasthan. The incident was not in news at that time, I denied him saying that these are rumors or acts of miscreants and I still believe miscr…

Naive Traveler : City of Nawabs - Lucknow

Naive Traveler : City of Nawabs - Lucknow

Lucknow is known as The City of Nawabs the royal ruler of the city which gave it culinary & cultural identity like the way of talking I noticed while interacting with the people. The place is beautiful and has many things which can attract tourists to visit this city but I don’t find it tourist friendly as I observed in the other cities I visited like Agra,Jaipur, Dehradun,etc. As we came out of the station, there were no tourist autos or taxis available for city sightseeing thus left you unaware of what to do.
If we haven’t researched about the places and things to eat we couldn’t explore the city the way we did.

With our knowledge of places to visit and to eat, we first hire a bus bust to the Chowk area where we found Rahim’s Hotel for famous RAHIM KI NIHARI-KULCHA. Nihari is a breakfast non-vegetarian dish available in both Buffalo & Goat meat. Its taste was totally different from what I have tested it in Delhi and the Kulcha was he…
