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…

Burning Bengal

Burning Bengal 
When the nation is in a fix with its relations with China the home is also not right as Bengal is burning from two sides. You can say that I am picking the topic late but I don’t want to spread the rumor without confirming all the sources which is giving news information. Here I should mention that don’t overreact on social media hypes until news are coming from authentic news agencies.
Basirhat communal violence which triggered with a controversial Facebook post by a class 11th student took an ugly turn when Muslim mobs started vandalizing properties of the Hindus but this is only the half story. The calm which prevailed after Thursday is revealing the story that many Muslims saved their Hindu friends and neighbors by confronting the mob. Hindu-Muslim groups are now helping those who have financial losses in shops/business to stand again by helping them with money (Read Indian Express front page of 9th July 2017). Locals knew that mob that attacked in their area were …

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…
