Fear is only a four letter word but having numerous types which obstruct our path to success. Fear to talk to someone, fear to face the public,fear to go somewhere, fear of meeting new people, fear to climb a tree, fear of interviews, etcetera , etcetera, etcetera. The list is endless. You can see a similarity between all these examples, on one side of fear is the success or the result achieved after performing these activities and on another side its you, that means the only thing between success and you is your fear and when we rise above it we comes out as a winner.

I too have many fears like each one of us and there were many instances in my life where I faced them to come out as a winner at least for myself. In 2005 I was doing a degree course of multimedia and web designing in a computer training institute near my house. I preferred my bicycle for going there and on one fateful day in November of that year when I was returning from the institute a speeding car hit my bicycle from behind and I became unconscious on the spot. Some rickshaw puller standing nearby stopped that car and forced the driver and her companion to take me to the hospital.

I remained in ICU (Intensive Care Unit) for six days before coming back to my senses all thanks to efforts of doctors and prayers of my family & friends. It was a new life for me. The wounds on my legs confined me to bed for about a month. After coming back to normal routine it was time to complete the course, the institute allowed me to continue my course with another batch and I faced no problem from their side. But the real problem was waiting inside me, my fear to ride a bicycle again, my fear to go back on road, my fear that this would not happen again. During recovery period talks of well wishers intensified my fear more, " Do take care when you go on cycle again. " " Take someone along with you when you go out." " Don't ride a cycle again." " You know this could me more fatal. God has given you a new life." These kind of instructions were demotivating. But my family said that I should go there again on cycle to face my fear.

I collected my courage and when I pushed the pedal of my cycle first time after recovering from accident I not only moved forward on road by I also moved forward from my fear. I felt victorious and as they say in Mountain Dew ads Darr Ke Aage Jeet Hai ( There is victory ahead of fear). It was a very small thing but for one who have passed that condition of accidental trauma and hospital procedures it was among the biggest achievements of my life. I overcame my fear. I rose above fear. We must rise above fear to get success we deserve.

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…
