Delhi's Serial Killer

Delhi's Serial Killer



Search for a missing girl in South Delhi on July 14, 2015 revealed a much sinister story of sexual assault and killings of minors aged between 2 to 10 at the hands of 24-year old laborer Ravinder Kumar. After discovering the dead body of missing girl in an empty house police arrested him through a driving licence of a person whom vehicle was stolen by him before abducting the girl.

Later in police interrogation he confessed to other such crimes not only in Delhi but also in Noida, Badaun, Hathras and Aligarh district of Uttar Pradesh. Everyday tolls of his victims are increasing and till now he has confessed the sexual assault and killing of 30 children. What is more strange is the fact that he remained out of police's reach in all these incidents and when arrested by police in 2014 for assaulting and dumping a boy in water tank (who didn't die), he was released by police for lack of evidence.

All thirty children sexually assaulted and killed by him belonged to the poor labor class which remained the reason for less media coverage and police inaction in all these incidents. The poor parents couldn't pressurize the police and the society in a way middle and higher class did even in the petty cases of misbehaving with them. This case has exposed the inequality in our police system. The height of the inefficiency of police could also be judged from a case of assaulting and killing of a girl child in Hathras, U.P confessed by Ravinder Kumar in which U.P police had closed the case with the arrest of that girl's father and filing the charge-sheet against him in the court.

It is also hard to digest that police investigations in all these thirty cases brought out nothing concrete regarding these cases. Why Ravinder did these crimes is a matter of another debate but how he escaped them all so easily is a matter of concern. The Delhi police who ranked itself among the best police force in the world and who is now patting its back for arresting Ravinder Kumar is unable to explain his freedom even after thirty killings which he has admitted so far. The toll may increase further as he speak more about his life and crime until then thank god for this precious life and pray for safety of children from such psycho killers.

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…
