The Midas Touch

The Midas Touch

"Sir we should give him Bharat Ratna before your tenure end, otherwise I think he would be the next Prime Minister of India", PM's secretory was worried of my popularity because I helped in eradicating poverty along with garbage and waste from Indian streets which was promised by him five years back during his election rallies.

"It was also my mistake that he became so popular in the country. If I would have stayed in the country more than on foreign visits, I could catch his potentials early and forced him to join our party." PM knew that it was too late none of his policy could stand against my Midas touch. I have turned all the garbage and waste on streets and roads into gold which was picked by people. This changed fortunes of every Indian, those who never saw garbage touched and put it in their pockets and home. With lack of cleaning staff government even lost opportunity to grab gold.

I became so famous that not only Indian PM but state heads of other countries were also discussing about my Midas touch and its effect on the world. They were also planning to bestow me with highest civilian awards of their country. Their were also speculations that Noble Prize committee would confer me with Noble Peace Prize. Although I faced difficulty in doing my regular work like eating and cleaning myself but I dedicated myself to service of humanity and for doing my personal work I appointed a secretory who used to feed me, help me in bathing and after nature's call. 

All my nephews and nieces were engrossed in my story when their mothers called them. I always told them such stories without asking whether they believe it or not.But I know they enjoyed listening them. I think I have made it clear my action plan if I had the Midas touch

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…
