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…

Amritsar & Wagah Border Trip

Amritsar & Wagah Border Trip


Amritsar is the city of Golden Temple the sacred pilgrimage for Sikhs. The area around is recently developed beautifully to promote tourism by renovating it with related themes and including some modern day structures which compliment the place nicely. Historical Jalianwala Bagh where Britishers fired mercilessly on innocent Indians also lies in that area and it now has a monument as a remembrance to those who killed in that massacre. Another important thing in the area is Partition Museum build inside Town Hall which encloses memories of partition with having things donated by people effected by the tragedy along with the historical accounts of that time. But photography is not allowed inside the museum. 






I also visited Ranjit Singh Panorama Museum which housed weapons of Ranjit Singh army and has some depictions of Raja Ranjit Singh's life through painting and models. There is also Gobindgarh Fort which you must visit for the 7D film on life of R…

My Brother,My Role Model

My Brother,My Role Model

In the course of life it is not the one man or one moment which inspires to be better and the best but anyone you come across in your life teaches you something valuable. These lessons we learn from them improves our lives and make us better making these men our role model whom we tries to imitate.

When I was a child my families financial condition was not very good. My father suffered a huge loss in his business. One or the other borrower queues daily at our door for their money while we didn't have enough money to afford even food. My father was shattered, it was at that time my mother and brother stood for him. My brother leaved his study and started learning some work. He learned machine embroidery work in only four months for which others took a year or so to learn and then he started his own work with some financial support from my parents who at that time opened a grocery shop.

I was very young at that time but I still remembered that my brother ha…
