Privileged Fugitive

Privileged Fugitive




You will wish to commit a crime if you would see Lalit Modi's Instagram and Twitter images with celebrities in parties or his images of relaxation in destinations like Venice, Paris and London. The accused of money laundering in IPL (Indian Premier League) is enjoying in England and other European countries after taking refuge there in 2010.



A big corporate player Modi has good relations with both BJP and Congress leaders which resulted in his easy escape in 2010 and getting favors from external affair minister Sushma Swaraj even in the Narender Modi regime which flaunts its spotless image freely. Why any accused would have such an easy access to top ministers without having any fear of being caught by the investigative officials ?The silence of Narender Modi on this issue brought him at par with Manmohan Singh who remained silent on various scams during his tenure as PM of India.


It is an open secret that IPL is more of money than cricket and spot fixing allegations on players and officials are equal news makers along with the cricketing geniuses. I am not against IPL because it has helped in giving a big platform to emerging young Indian cricketers which otherwise lost in cricket politics but it must be free from fixing issues to have a genuine impact. We all know that corporate means profit, they don't see good or bad in making profits and if such people are heading top posts in sports bodies then they will try to make profit in them also by hook or by crook.


Sushma Swaraj should clarify her stand because there are no humanitarian ground which could justify helping a criminal. If this is justified then Dawood Ibrahim  someday would ask her to visit his ailing relatives in India on humanitarian ground without any fear of being caught or other accused who are outside India would also roam freely like Lalit Modi mocking Indian judicial system. I hope Finance Minister, External Affair Minister or Prime Minister should say something on this issue.

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…

The Masked Life

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. 
We can avoid Indoor ai…

RIP Tom Alter

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…
