A pizza delivery boy reported the incident to the police.  Sangita was unconscious with wounds on her forehead when they brought her to hospital. Girish meanwhile telephoned her husband about the incident who immediately drove to return. He also interrogated her about the incident.

"See Inspector I am not getting what you are saying about robbery.I planned to visit the nearby town to surprise my husband working there on Valentine's eve when I noticed an abandoned car. There were blood spots at its back seats, a masked man with blood stained knife attacked me and when I became conscious I found myself on this hospital bed. I am sure someone was murdered by that masked man and you are saying that some robbers attacked me in my house." Girish and Victor looked at each other in disbelief after hearing her because a patrolling police unit have found a similar car described by Sangita but no dead body was recovered from the spot.

As they finished Aarav entered the room, met with officers and consulted doctors to take her home. Girish decided to meet them in the evening after investigating the spot she found the abandoned car.

###############

"Victor what do you think? " Girish asked while sipping tea in his cabin after returning from that site of abandoned car. " We haven't found any dead body as Sangita believes but there was truth in her statement about the car." Victor was moving in the cabin with worried expressions. As a crime reporter he has reported and worked on many such incidences but that was a real mystery.

A constable interfere their conversation by giving them report of the blood spots they found in the car and informed about the owner of the car. " The car belongs to some Vandana Chaudhary and ..." His eyes was wide open to see her address. She was Sangita and Aarav's neighbor. " I need a complete history of Aarav, Sangita and Vandana immediately and also the details of their phone records." Girish ordered the constable.

###############

" How are you feeling now my dear ? " Aarav asked Sangita when she woke up. " I am fine now." She repeated the incident of last night to Aarav. " Baby, this must be your dream. How can you present at two spots at the same time." That thing was also bothering her but she was sure that it wasn't a dream.

###############

Inspector Girish reached Aarav's home and asked Sangita about VandanaAarav was more surprised to hear that name than Sangita. " Yes! She came to our home yesterday and introduced me as our neighbor. She wanted to meet Aarav but you know he was not there yesterday." Their attention turned to Aarav who started speaking before they asked anything.

" Vandana is my friend and our only neighbor but Sangita doesn't know her because she left India before our marriage but why are you asking about her." Do you know some Jatin." " No I don't know him." Girish told them that Jatin was Vandana's husband and she was here to complete the process of her divorce. Aarav told them that he didn't know that she was married. She was missing and that blood spots matched her blood group and police believed that Jatin has killed her.

At this point Victor reached and said something in Girish's ear. " Mr. Aarav where were you last night." " I am in another city for some work but why you are asking this to me Mr. Victor." Victor showed him the copy of his mobile bill record which shows his location at home. He was the one who ordered the pizza and perhaps he was the killer of Vandana.

" What rubbish are you talking Mr Victor, inspector why don't you told him that Jatin is the killer." Aarav was sweating in the AC room. " I am also saying that Jatin is the killer and Mr Aarav you are Jatin," Victor threw some papers on the bad in front of Sangita. Sangita read those papers and started crying she looked angrily towards Aarav which broke him down.

" I am sorry Sangita but I did everything for your love and because I don't want to lose you." Sangita spoke nothing , he continued." Vandana was my first wife whom I married as Jatin for her money. I even succeeded in transferring some of her property to my name. But she discovered my treachery and charged me for forgery & also filed for divorce. She shifted to America after that incident while her lawyers fighting her case and I came here to this lonely place without knowing that the adjacent house belongs to Vandana. She informed me about her arrival and it was than I planned her murder so that Sangita remain unaware about her. It was only a chance that she met Sangita."

"But Sangita's surprise spoiled your plan. She spotted you in mask with a knife.You hit at her forehead, bring her home in her car, call for pizza and set the story of a robbery so puzzle her." Girish finished the story and hand cuffed him."

" Mr Aarav if you truly love Sangita you have told her the truth. We usually forget that love is not in days we spend to earn happiness for each other but in days we spend together with each other." Police recovered Vandana's body from her swimming pool and informed her aunt in America about her death. Sangita still struggling to come out of this shock.

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.

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…

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. But that what I and my family thought but as I few days past I realized problems of sore throat, running nose, itching eyes which were watering and initially it was difficult to even face a bright light. I was diagnosed with allergy from almost anything cold water, wind, dust, etc which increases in changing season. Doctor advised me to spend most time in homes and medicines were provided to control the allergy. It cured with time and now I only take single tablet daily to control my allergy. The doctor said to take it only when allergy symptoms appear but they comes out when I stop taking medicine. Now while researching about indoor air pollution I found what force me to take that tablet continuously even when I am mostly home-bound.

RIP Tom Alter
I am sure those who grew up in nineties are not unfamiliar with his name. Like many I also has his first image in my mind is of 'British Raj Ka Writer' in Doordarshan serial 'Zabaan Sambhaal Ke' where he played an Englishman writer who is learning Hindi. He was impressive in that role along with the other's worked in it. I later saw him in films like Charas, Karma, Kranti and films like that where he has played bad characters of Firangi (foreign) officer. He played these negative characters impressively and when you compare them with his comic role in Zabaan Sambhalke you will know his acting proves. 
I also remembered him as Mahaguru in popular superhero serial Shaktimaan but what inspired me about him later on in my life was his command on Hindi and Urdu. He recite shayaris and ghazals beautifully. I have seen performing him many time on television. I also knew he was a great theater actor but never got any chance to see him live on stage. His ghaz…
