Wrong Queue

Wrong Queue

I am a regular visitor at Delhi India International Trade Fair held between 14 to 27 November every year in Pragati Maidan, New Delhi. I visit there to see different cultures and traditions of India under one roof, to experience different foods and also for the products which are unique and you usually struggles to find them in local markets. Once in 2008 when I went there and was visiting different pavilions I saw a long queue of boys in one of the stall of a hall. I asked one of the boy standing in queue about the reason behind this line. He said that some company was distributing some products for boys for free as part of their promotion.

I felt excited and also stand behind in that line. What that boy failed to mention was the products were given to those who were clean shaved because they were applying some cream on their faces and clicking pictures of difference in skin quality before and after using that cream and then giving some free samples along with some gifts to those boys who were clicked. You can easily understand a stubble face is not meant for promoting face products for boys. When my turn came the girl applying cream laughed and asked where to apply cream. At first I didn't understand what she meant but when others standing there also laughed and said "Dadiyal (with beard) move aside". I realized what happened. I felt ashamed and came out quickly from that stall and from that pavilion also. I missed out opportunity of getting free products because of non-shaven face.

#WillYouShave. Yes I will shave because I have so much embarrassing instances for not doing it regularly. My nature of not taking care of my looks is very bad and I must change it. With stubble face you not only miss opportunities like that but your confidence in presenting yourself also becomes less.

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…
