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 hanging like an Albatross around their neck. The recent cancellations of talks between NSA (National Security Adviser) of both countries is result of confusion in maintaining international images and their images at home. None but people of both the countries are suffering from this tense situation. 

The decision made at political level affect border areas the most where destruction of property and human life due to shelling from both the sides happens. The trade,cultural and developmental loss faced by their people is beyond recognition. The hate-mongers of both sides in such a situation try to sell their propaganda of separation of hearts which result in inhumanity and insensitivity like celebrating the deaths of innocent people. 

The governments of both the nations must talk on all issues including cross-border terrorism and Kashmir. The conversations without these issues would not bring any good to them. They must hear this Javed Akhtar written song music by Anu Malik and sung by Hariharan from the movie Border to calculate the risk of animosity.

  2. They should talk and resolve the issues. There are precedents where countries have moved on and worked on their progress. Germany is a good example. It's what you want for future that decides your action. Song is really moving.

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…

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
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…
