Loud And Clear

Loud And Clear

We all can give long lectures if we asked to present our views on Swach Bharat ( Clean India ) but we cornered ourselves when someone ask how you can contribute to it. We prefer silence at such instances than voicing our opinion. Our love for country and patriotism take a backseat. We say that 'humara ghar to saaf hai aur hum kahin gandgi bhi nahin phekte' (Our houses are clean and we don't throw our wastes anywhere) but remember not speaking against something equals to supporting it.

We see a heap of garbage on road side and move away quickly covering our noses and murmuring 'Yahan kuch nahi badlega' (Nothing will change here). We also move away when some government official come to inquire about incompetency of their staff in not doing their duty of cleanliness by saying that 'Is jhanjhat mein kaun pade' (Why to indulge in such mess). Similar instances happen if someone put garbage in a public place or anywhere according to their convenience. We remain silent even when we know that all these things are making our locality, our state, our country dirty. Our silence indicates that we also are responsible for this uncleanliness.

Its time we raise our voice and understand the power of our voices like Montu did. Montu denotes today's youth in Strepsils #AbMontuBolega campaign. He understands now that Ab Bin Bole Nahin Chalega and if your unclear throat is coming between speaking what is right then clear it with strepsils and speak loudly. This campaign encourages you to speak against various issues to have your opinion count and become the part of the change. Be the part of this movement by registering your opinion at web page or at their  Facebook and Twitter pages.

Mahatma Gandhi said that "Cleanliness is next to Godliness" and he also said that " Be the change you want to see." I think that's says all. We must lead by example to point fingers at others. Keep your surrounding clean and tell others to join in doing so, wherever government help required call,write or visit the concerned official, try to raise awareness in those who defecate in open, litter anywhere, drive vehicles which are not pollution checked,etc. Sharing pictures of dirty places on twitter and Facebook could also be used to create awareness about cleanliness.

The process of change always starts with one voice raised against or in favor of something. Soon different voices combines to become one and then the power of these voices can bring drastic and immediate changes. So charged yourself so that Montu would not feel alone. Ab na sirf Montu balki Sonu,Monu, Pappu, Minni, Golu, Babbu, Chutki, aur baki sab bhi bolenge aur badlenge. We all will raise our voices against the uncleanliness and will make the dream of Clean India come true.

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…
