Hunger Is Hindrance

Hunger Is Hindrance



' Ek Mayaan mein do talwarein nahin reh sakti ' ( two of a trade seldom agrees ) that goes with the classroom hunger as well. Their must be only one hunger in the classroom that's hunger for knowledge. We Indians can't afford shortage of this hunger because it is required to build a better country but ' Bhuke pet bhajan nahin hove gopala' which means one can't pray empty stomach. So, if it is not possible to worship god with empty stomach how we wish that children can study and concentrate when hungry.


Many dropouts in schools of rural India is due to this problem, illiterate farmers believes that their children would be benefited more by learning to work in fields and not by learning in classrooms. Poverty in our country also make it difficult for poor people to enroll their children to schools but in areas and in schools where midday meal is offered enrollment of students has increased drastically. But there is the need to spread such schemes to remote areas and to wider population. In places where schools are very far away, I think mobile kitchens should be send with teachers to promote 'Eat and Learn'. Parents with more than one children often left their toddlers in care of school going children when they are off to work thus limiting these children to home caring for their siblings, eat and learn vans are like 'Ek teer se do nishaane' (Kill two birds with one stone) as along with providing education they can help in eradicating malnutrition by providing food for those toddlers and infants in care of their school going brother and children without bothering the parents.

Moreover interacting more with the villagers in such a way bring education closer to the people removing many misconceptions prevailed in people regarding schools and education.' Ek haath se taali nahin bajti' ( Its take two to tango) thus for the success of any program people's participation is must in government's initiative.

A child is a father of a nation, just imagine what a generation of educated youth could do to the nation. It is the lack of education and hunger which misleads many children and they easily falls for t bad habits, violence and crimes. People are ready to do anything for the sake of food for themselves and their family. Education opens the window of opportunity and hunger closes the doors to education. NGO's like The Akshaya Patra is helping in implementing midday meal schemes in government schools as well as government aided school thus opening the doors of education and the windows of opportunity. I am glad for writing this post as it will donate to Akshya Patra by BlogAdda.

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…

Burning Bengal

Burning Bengal 
When the nation is in a fix with its relations with China the home is also not right as Bengal is burning from two sides. You can say that I am picking the topic late but I don’t want to spread the rumor without confirming all the sources which is giving news information. Here I should mention that don’t overreact on social media hypes until news are coming from authentic news agencies.
Basirhat communal violence which triggered with a controversial Facebook post by a class 11th student took an ugly turn when Muslim mobs started vandalizing properties of the Hindus but this is only the half story. The calm which prevailed after Thursday is revealing the story that many Muslims saved their Hindu friends and neighbors by confronting the mob. Hindu-Muslim groups are now helping those who have financial losses in shops/business to stand again by helping them with money (Read Indian Express front page of 9th July 2017). Locals knew that mob that attacked in their area were …

Naive Traveler : Delhi Darshan # 4

Naive Traveler : Delhi Darshan # 4


Delhi as we all know is habitat and destroyed several times in different eras since it always remained the central city for each empire. As a result of these variant rulers from ancient times to the British era, Delhi enjoys the status of being witness to their grandeur and glory. 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. 
Now talking about m…
