Abandon

Abandon



"I wouldn't forgive him for his lie", he said to his father.

"But darling it was his duty and it was you who taught him that duty comes before family", he tried to pacify her. 

"He never told a lie to me in his lifetime and see the day he lied to me he died" , she broke into tears in front of a coffin wrapped in tricolors.

Her son was the Indian army soldier who died of a bomb blast while rescuing a family trapped in that house.

"We should be proud of him that he decided to abandon us and not his country" he said to her proudly. 


P.S : This post is a salute to all soldiers safeguarding Indian republic by endangering their lives. We must remember them on this special day. Happy Republic Day.

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.

The Masked Life

The Masked Life


I met with an accident few years back (precisely 10 years ago). It was dangerous and I came out of hospital in about ten days. Except a foot injury which needed dressing every week for around a year I was alright.

(Inter - Religion marriage still taboo among Indians ? What is your take on it .)

We as Indians are still confused for our cultural identity i.e who we are as residents of this country. Hindu,Hindustani,Indian,Bharatiya,Hindi or something else.

An adult individual thus holds the freedom to choose his or her partner regardless to any religion.The constitution also declares India as Bharat or India and not as Hindustan which denotes its secular identity not related to a particular religion. How a Chris…
