India's Son

India's Son


People always fall short of words for abuses and curses for the rapist of Jyoti Singh popularly known as Nirbhaya the victim of December 16 Delhi gang rape case even now after two years of that dreadful incident but there are no words of condolences for Syed Sharif Khan who was lynched by a mob in Dimapur, Nagaland on 5th March 2015.

When I first heard the news of publicly killing a rape accused I rejoiced it for the fact that rapists in India went out from the jails unharmed or with small punishments after the end of court trials. A documentary 'India's Daughter' on Nirbhaya case by BBC even shows how shameless rapist could be, they have became hale and hearty in the prison and now justifying there act of raping and killing her. After watching this movie before its YouTube ban by the government of India (which I think is a wrong decision, their mindset should be in front of the people) I felt sorry for the India's judicial system and ridiculed its maker for giving so many chances to appeal in different courts to the accused. 

But after Dimapur lynching incident I found that the makers of law were not wrong in giving full chance to the accused to prove his/her innocence. " Escape of hundred guilty is better than the conviction of one innocent."Police investigation in the Dimapur case reveals that medical examination of the victim denies possibility of rape, there are evidence of consensual sex, there are also proofs that the incident was pre -planned and orchestrated through social media pages and blogs (according to the reports in today's (13.3.2015)The Indian Express newspaper). The news that he was an illegal Bangladeshi immigrant was falsely planted in some local newspapers of Nagaland to instigate the mob instead he was from a family of army men in Assam.

This case not only highlights the misuse of social media in misguiding the mob but also points out a deep and more harsh reality that Bengali Muslim in that area are mistreated and hated because they could be Bangladeshi immigrants. Illegal Bangladeshi immigrants is really a problem in northeast states but this is not the solution to deal with the problem. " Darkness cannot drive out darkness only light can, hate cannot drive out hate only love can." He was paraded naked, smacked by the mob of around 10,000 people, pelted with stone that finally killed him. It was the shear act of violence and a shameful act of inhumanity.

This is a very serious incident and I believe that voices against it should resonate throughout the country and government must probe the incident thoroughly to catch the culprits. There is also a need for better policy on immigration problems. There is also a need for spreading the message of love and peace in the country. If mob started taking decision than the country would became a mere Jungle of animals. And remember that India's Son is as important as India's Daughter.

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…
