The First Battle of Delhi

The First Battle of Delhi



There are numerous battles in the history to conquer Delhi like three Battles of Panipat, Battle of Kurukshetra in Mahabharata ,etcetera fought at the outskirts of Delhi between different kings and rulers but none so big and interesting than the one going on within the limits of Delhi. This is the first battle of Delhi in this winter of 2015 for the 70 constituencies that form this city. Battle because it is fight between personalities and not for the people's issues. 

The ruling BJP party in the center have put everything at stake to win this battle. The so called Modi magic which they believe helped them in winning 2014 General Election and then assembly elections in four states is fading here in front of Arvind Kejriwal who is just 2 years old in politics but has changed it dynamics since his entry in it before 2013 Delhi assembly polls. Congress party which is marginalized after 2014 elections is also hoping to regain their lost reputation through these polls but looking at the present scenario it seems very difficult. 

Arvind Kejriwal is the reason behind making this battle fierce and grand. He has shaped it in his own terms , played cards which demolished every strategy of his opponents. He didn't want it to be Modi v/s him so he compelled BJP to present a CM candidate in the form of Kiran Bedi, he pressurized her to debate with him which made her nervous and she committed mistakes during her media interviews. She appeared unprepared for her task without any plan and policy for the state she was contesting as CM , her authoritarian behavior irked workers of her own party, walking out from a TV interview and from a reporter's questions forced party to order her not to speak to media again proving beneficial to Arvind Kejriwal. He also displayed a rare trait in politics i.e apology for leaving government in 49 days last time. A country where politicians and political parties never felt sorry for their wrong doings his apology made him closer to the people.

 This is also a first that about 120 MP of ruling party including many cabinet ministers were campaigning for 70 seats assembly elections and that too for a state which is not even a complete state. This is also strange that BJP chief Amit Shah has not spoken a word in support of his CM candidate Kiran Bedi. Every weapon available has been tested from newspaper adds to social media campaign, from twitter trends to letter to each home but in all these hullabaloo core issues have lost. 

The nation is watching Delhi. The world is watching Delhi. Name, reputations, future, expansions, policies, leadership,marketing techniques all are at stake in this elections. This battle of personalities,this battle of ideologies, this battle of ego will change the course of politics of this nation. Will the unconquerable Modi taste a defeat? What will be the future of Arvind Kejriwal after this election? What will Congress get from this battle? There are many questions which will be answered on 10th Feb 2015 the counting day.

In the end I would like to say that whatever may be your choice do vote and exercise your right on 7th February 2015. In this historical battle of polls lets create history by making new record in voting.

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…

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. From last three years since the Modi government came in power these lynching of innocent people by mob has increased manifolds many of which are conducted by radicalized Hindu youths in the name of protecting ‘Mother Cow’ and their tradition forgetting about innocent humans they have killed in this process. Latest incident happened with three Muslim brothers going home in a train from Delhi to Mathura after Eid shopping in Delhi. A group of 10-12 men between 7-8 pm attacked them and stabbed one Junaid to death while two others are battling for life in Delhi hospital. The brutality with which they were attacked and the hatred filled in the criminal mob can be judge by seeing the blood pai…

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…
