Kitne Ajeeb Rishte Hain Yahan Pe

Kitne Ajeeb Rishte Hain Yahan Pe.


Sheena Bora Murder Case is more mysterious than a Bollywood suspense thriller. The case is much more than a TRP gathering news item, it shows the high ambitions and complicated relationships in the high society or page three people which in this case lead to murder of a daughter at hands of a mother.

Some interesting and shocking points of this case:

Indrani Mukherjea introduced her daughter from previous marriage Sheena as her sister to her third husband Peter Mukherjea. Why?What is the reason behind this murder is still unknown.Who helped Indrani in hiding the death for almost three years?Why no body contacted Sheena in America where according to Indrani she was doing some course?If Mikhail was aware of Sheena's death than why was he silent for so long?How is it possible that Rahul knew Sheena was Indrani's daughter but his father Peter was unaware of this reality.What is the role played by Indrani's second husband Sanjeev Khanna? It is n…

Gujarat Model - A Myth.

Gujarat Model - A Myth. 
"The bigger the lie, the more it will be believed"  - Paul Joseph Goebbels (Adolf Hitler's Propaganda Minister in Nazi Germany).





I never believed in the myth of Gujarat Model advertised by BJP (Bhartiya Janata Party) in 2014 Indian General Election to show Narender Modi as developmental man because I have read the reports of high malnutrition deaths, most anemic mothers and poor conditions of farmers in Gujarat state. But those who believed could see the proof of it in recent agitation and violence by Patel community lead by Hardik Patel a young individual from this community. "Repeat a lie thousand times and it becomes a truth," this quote is also attributed to Paul Joseph Goebbels is holding a firm ground in the case of Gujarat Model. 
Patels of Gujarat which constitute most of the Gujarati NRI's, diamond traders, big business owners and holds important positions in the government including Chief Minister post (Anandiben Patel) ar…

Mere Dushman, Mere Bhai, Mere Humsaye

Mere Dushman, Mere Bhai, Mere Humsaye

Our only neighbor which is both a friend and a foe is Pakistan. Both nations never named this relationship of love and hate retribution of which faced by people of both the countries. The two nations with a common history have segregated their pasts in textbooks and in their functioning but few people on both the sides found it hard to digest. While few in India claims Pakistan and other countries of the subcontinent as part of erstwhile unified India (Akand Bharat) their counterparts in Pakistan demands Junagad,Kashmir,Hyderabad, Punjab to be merged in them.
The common people of both the countries are becoming puppets of each other's political conditions. The recent Indian government which have no clearly defined status on Pakistan have worsened the situation to a point that threat of war is looming in the country. This doesn't mean Pakistan is keen in resolving all issues, their internal problems and out of control terrorists are hangin…

The Fast and Curious

The Fast and Curious

They say 'World is at your finger tips' regarding new age smart phones which are used more as a palm-computer than as mobile devices. The age of voice call is nearing to an end with the emergence of video calls and if you still think about text message than you must be using those old phones better to be used as paper weights because now is the time of video messages. A hand-held device i.e your smart phone is capable of doing all things.
But the smart phone has its own limitations, most of the above mentioned features and some more features like online gaming, live cricket streaming, movie downloads, music downloads, updating social sites with latest selfies and pics, following tweets of your favorites in real-time and many such features are dependent on your phone's Internet network which means a smart phone is dumb without a smart network and all the features like video calling, video messages are useless if you are unable to use them.

Uphar Tragedy - Where Is The Justice?

Uphar Tragedy - Where Is The Justice?
"That day I lost my faith in God and Today I lost my faith in Indian Judiciary" - Neelam Krishnamoorthy (lost two children in Uphar Tragedy)



These words are echoing with me as a failure of our judicial system since the time I heard them on TV from Neelam Krishnamoorthy who lost her children a girl and a boy in 1997 Delhi's Uphar cinema fire. She said that she spent more time in court battle for justice than she spent with her kids who were only 17 and 13 at the time of tragedy. She added that if rich people killed your children than forget about justice in this country and I didn't find any example to counter her statement.
On June 13, 1997 a transformer caught fire during matinee show (3 to 6 show) of the movie Border in which 59 people died of asphyxia and more than 100 were injured. The owner of the theater Gopal and Sushil Ansal were booked for negligence and other charges and granted two years imprisonment by a lower court wh…

Stalled Storytellers

Stalled Storytellers

Pune police arrested 5 students of Film and Television Institute of India (FTII) at midnight of 18-19th August after FTII director Prashant Pathrabe lodged a complaint against them for detaining him in campus on Monday. The action taken by police is result of a long ongoing battle between the Modi government and the students' union for some faculty members appointment.
The government has promoted BJP workers, MLA's and RSS campaigners to the important administrative and decisive posts of the institute ignoring film industry's stalwarts like Naseeruddin Shah, Amitabh Bachchan, Govind Nihalani, Gulzar, Anupam Kher to name a few. The chairman appointee Gajender Chauhan (best known as his role of Yudhishter in DD's epic serial Mahabharata) students believed is unmatched to the status of the institute according to his work profile which includes soft porn movies, short roles in small films and some TV serials. Government adamant in imposing their order y…

The Merchant of Dreams - Narender Modi

The Merchant of Dreams - Narender Modi

There is no doubt in proficient oratory skills of Mr Modi. Even his opponents flabbergasted by his ability to mesmerize and hypnotize his audience are unable to bring someone matching to his skills. Yesterday in his second speech from the Red Fort after flag hoisting he was impressive not only for maintaining his energy in such a humid Delhi atmosphere but for delivering an unwritten speech without any teleprompter and bulletproof screen protection.
His speech mainly covered his achievements of the previous year which are contradictory as compare to the real ground situation. For instance more than 90% of the account opened through Pradhanmantri Jan Dhan Yojana (18 crore approx.) have zero balance in them. Those functional have not received Rs 5000 loan promised after six month's transaction and the 1 lakh insurance was only receivable in accidental deaths. Target of toilets in all primary schools is also not achieved yet. Sansad Adarsh Gram…

Book Review : Hooked,Lined & Single

Book Review : Hooked, Lined & Single
Hooked, Lined & Single is written by Rashmi Kumarand published by Srishti Publications. I have received this book for Blog-A-Ton - 55 winning post The Monsoon Pain. This book is an fictional account of a girl's efforts to find a right match after a failed marriage. 



Cover : It fails in the sensual look it is trying to give. Although the hints at loneliness in narrator's life from both aspects emotionally and physically is conveyed through this picture. This I think not one of the best to go with the story but an apt one.
Plot: A divorcee author in her 30's Alafia Singh is desperate to find a perfect match and is taking help of a matrimonial site for the same. The many men that came in her life through this means only add to misery to her all ready troubled life. She was used by those men either sexually or emotionally thus to hurt her from the core. After her younger sister's marriage she decided to take a firm decision on her…

The Great Indian Terrorist Tamasha

The Great Indian Terrorist Tamasha

Indian Army catching an alive terrorist isn't a new thing. They have caught 44 Pakistani terrorist last year which are in their custody and under interrogation. But why is arresting a young terrorist between 16 to 20 years of age in Udhampur (J & K) became a matter of spectacle for our news channels? In a race to show themselves as fast they made the mockery of such an important issue. Have you heard or sea Americans coming out of their sleeves for killing of Osama -bin- Laden? No they don't because this hampers your image as a serious fighter to terrorism.
Some cabinet ministers also tweeted it as the second terrorist caught alive after Ajmal Kasab during 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks giving wrong signals in the public domain. The trolls on twitter got an opportunity to target every Muslim of the nation for this arrest. A conspiracy to polarize the masses through this incident appears eminent. The hate mongers must understand that those M…

Diary Confessions - 9 : Time Machine





15th Feb, 2015 
Dear Diary,
My father sold that blue sofa to a scrap dealer thinking that it was unlucky for me because I have became lazy since he bought it. How silly he thinks, it wasn't unlucky but so soft that I always fell asleep whenever I sat on it to study. My laziness was the reason of my bad grades and not that sofa. But now I am determined to perform well in my coming board exam and will definitely make him proud.

You are witness to my father's brutality after I failed board exams. I think he is not wrong, I am a useless fellow who has ruined his own life in laziness. All my friends make mockery of me. I can't bear that insult anymore. I am ending my life by diving in this river.
