A Step Towards Change

 A Step Towards Change

Change is permanent. It is the only constant around which our lives moves. Nobody can and nobody will ever be able to stop it. It is happening and it has to happen anyhow in us, in our surrounding, in our thoughts, in our ideas and in our lives. It is not a bad thing as most people believes , it is good since it gives way to something new better than yesterday, better than the past. If we pursue with positivity and optimism then the change which come will do wonders for us.

I have mentioned in some of my previous post about the fatal accident I met in the year 2005 while returning from an institute where I was pursuing a degree course in computer software. It took several days to discharge from hospital and it took about a month to recover from it completely and to start walking properly without any support and bandages on my body. But what I haven't mentioned before is that my family became more protective towards me. They never allowed me to go outside for anything and if ever I tried to go they accompany me. I was not permitted to go alone even to a barber's shop. My life became still and home bound even though I was recovered. It was then I decided to bring a change in my life and to start it all over again. I decided to start a new life by rejoining the course I was doing before the accident. 

My family protested but I listened to no one at that time because only after this change I could bring a change in my life. I met with accident while riding a cycle and it was a big step for me to choose that mode of transportation again for my ride to the institute. I wouldn't able to complete my course if I haven't opted for that change in my life. During my recovery period I not only changed physically in appearance by my way of thinking was also changed. I became more spiritual and positive. This time also brought me closer to world problems since I surfed News channels more when I was bedridden which further motivated to voice my concerns which became the stepping stone for my commitment to writing and then to write for change.

We all change with time in our thoughts and appearance, it always bring something good in our lives. In this changing world Housing is committed in bringing homes spreading optimism in the world.  Housing envisions a world filled with positivity. As elusive as it may seem, optimism can be found all around - in the laughter of children, in the excitement on your pet's face when you get back after a long day, and in the smile of your loved ones when you go back home after months of being away.

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…

Amritsar & Wagah Border Trip

Amritsar & Wagah Border Trip


Amritsar is the city of Golden Temple the sacred pilgrimage for Sikhs. The area around is recently developed beautifully to promote tourism by renovating it with related themes and including some modern day structures which compliment the place nicely. Historical Jalianwala Bagh where Britishers fired mercilessly on innocent Indians also lies in that area and it now has a monument as a remembrance to those who killed in that massacre. Another important thing in the area is Partition Museum build inside Town Hall which encloses memories of partition with having things donated by people effected by the tragedy along with the historical accounts of that time. But photography is not allowed inside the museum. 






I also visited Ranjit Singh Panorama Museum which housed weapons of Ranjit Singh army and has some depictions of Raja Ranjit Singh's life through painting and models. There is also Gobindgarh Fort which you must visit for the 7D film on life of R…

My Brother,My Role Model

My Brother,My Role Model

In the course of life it is not the one man or one moment which inspires to be better and the best but anyone you come across in your life teaches you something valuable. These lessons we learn from them improves our lives and make us better making these men our role model whom we tries to imitate.

When I was a child my families financial condition was not very good. My father suffered a huge loss in his business. One or the other borrower queues daily at our door for their money while we didn't have enough money to afford even food. My father was shattered, it was at that time my mother and brother stood for him. My brother leaved his study and started learning some work. He learned machine embroidery work in only four months for which others took a year or so to learn and then he started his own work with some financial support from my parents who at that time opened a grocery shop.

I was very young at that time but I still remembered that my brother ha…
