Ye Duniya Agar Mil Bhi Jaaye To Kya Hai !

Ye Duniya Agar Mil Bhi Jaaye To Kya Hai !



Ye Duniya Agar Mil Bhi Jaaye To Kya Hai is a famous song sung by Mohammad Rafi, written by Sahir Ludhianvi and music composed by S. D. Burman for Guru Dutt staring Pyasa (1957). These lines aptly describes the condition of the farmers who are currently dying almost everyday after the damage of their crops due to untimely rain and hailstorm. They are thinking what's the benefit if I get this world.

The debt ridden farmers have no hope from the world, governments and system to wait for any compensation thanks to their previous experiences resulting in their suicides. According to some media studies approximately 45 farmers are committing suicide daily in Vidarbha region (Maharashtra), Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Punjab, Telangana and Madhya Pradesh. These are also the regions responsible for major agrarian product contributors to the GDP of India if condition there is so pathetic you can easily imagine the other areas with poor farmers. It is shameful that we are doing nothing for our 60% population dependent on agriculture. 

The most horrifying thing about the whole crop damage and suicide problem of farmers is that neither the state governments nor the central government is serious for their sorry condition. Union Cabinet Minister Nitin Gadkari's remark that farmers shouldn't rely on god or government for help shows how serious government is about this issue. Even affected land area measurement by different government agencies are having different figures confusing the whole scenario.

What hurts more is the fact we city people who came out on roads for rape victims, corruption issue never lend their support to farmers who feed us by providing food. The bloggers who have a big impact on online news and information also avoid such issues. Twitter never trends with farmers plight. Let's hope that some relief should be send immediately to farmers without waiting for the evaluation of the damage and steps like loan waiver, help for new crop, etc should be taken to make them stand again on their feet. Yesterday was the Earth Day and no one but farmers are the most near to her. They are the true son of soil and I pray on this Earth Day for new ray of hope for farmers.

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…
