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.

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.

Lynch Raj

Lynch Raj
An aged man keeping meet in home, a milkman transporting cattle for milking, rumors of child kidnapper, a policeman conducting his duties or you just innocent Muslim boys going home for Eid, this give enough reason to criminal mobs to lynch innocents without any respect and fear for the law.

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…
