Good Bye Chacha Kalam!

Good Bye Chacha Kalam!



Hasti hui surat teri sabno bhari aankhein,
 tujhse mili har seekh har dum yaad rahegi

Smile on your face, dream in your eyes,
We will remember always your each advice.

Chacha or Uncle is used after Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru for Avul Pakir Jainulabdeen Abdul Kalam or A.P.J. Abdul Kalam for being the only person after him who loved and cared for children. Mr Kalam who died last night (27.07.2015) was as inspirational in life as in death. He wished to die while working among the young generation which was granted by the almighty as he died while delivering a speech among students of IIM Shillong

I remembered him as the president who changed the way we looked at that office. Before he became President (11th President of India), this office was merely a decorative position granted under constitution to replace the Governor General position of British India. He chose this place to become closer to the people of India. He didn't sit in office to enjoy the comforts of presidency but visited different parts of the country to interact with students and public thus to impart in them his vision of India of the future. He always remained active for the cause of children's education which he believed is the first step towards change. He wrote many books which are inspirational and motivational. He was a pioneer in developing missile technology in India. He was the brain behind the Agni, Trishool and other such missiles we have with our army that's why he is also known as Missile-Man

The news of his sudden demise was shocking and painful at the same time. May Allah grant him the best place in the heaven. Although his lost is irreparable for the country but the legacy he left behind in the form of his works, his books and his life is an example of positiveness for all of us which will continue to instill hope and energy in the generations to come. He was also the best example of communal unity as he even practiced Hindu rituals in spite being a Muslim. I used to say him as 'The Einstein of India' for his looks. He was a simple man who believed in practice and not privilege. Good Bye Chacha Kalam may the journey to the heaven would be as satisfactory for you as the journey of your life.

  2. Shri Abdul Kalam was not only a genius and a humanist with a stroke of genius. As he said, Good bye should be short. A fitting tribute.

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…
