Back Off India!

Back Off India!

First #GoBackIndia during Nepal Earthquake and Now #BackOffIndia after promulgation of new constitution by Nepalese is a proof of diplomatic failure of Indian government in dealing with Nepal. The people of Nepal trended Back Off India hash tag on Twitter worldwide after Indian government try to intervene in their internal matter by taking note on seven points in their new constitution. Yogi Adityanath MP of ruling party BJP ( Bhartiya Janata Party) from Gorakhpur , Uttar Pradesh went one step ahead in dictating terms to them by sending a letter to Nepal constitution assembly suggesting to make Nepal a Hindu State than a Secular State.

We have a tradition of politeness in our Indian values but the present government which cared for culture and tradition so much that they have separate Cultural Ministry forgets that basic principle of our culture while dealing with our neighbors. They show a Big brother attitude to the smaller nations, the Akhand Bharat (Unified India) advertised by associates of the government challenges unique identities of these nations which is unacceptable to their people. Pakistan, Myanmar and now Nepal's mention to India to back off from their internal affair have maligned India's international image. 

PM Narender Modi says that Indian felt ashamed of them before he was Prime Minister of India but we have never faced such humiliation in international arena for our government's action in the past. If the government have some suggestions and ideas for their new constitution or even if they have some objections to it they would send a diplomat to Nepal to deal with it secretly without creating media hype which have brought embarrassment to both the countries. It seems Nepal's move of adopting a secular state over Hindu state have spoiled ruling party's agenda to promote the same in India.

It is true that happenings in neighbor's house effect situation in our home but that doesn't mean we dictate them how to live or how to deal in a particular situation. When we are not comfortable with someone’s intervention in our internal matters then why we expect the opposite from others. I have said so many times that Modi government need to revisit their foreign policy in case of our neighboring countries to have better connections with them. Boosting what you have done for them on international stage is not a right move when we in India believe in the concept that even left hand shouldn't know about the help made through right hand. I hope for some better strategies from the government so that we not hear phrases like #BackOffIndia from any nation in the future.

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 substances however are not harmful a…

(Inter - Religion marriage still taboo among Indians ? What is your take on it .)

We as Indians are still confused for our cultural identity i.e who we are as residents of this country. Hindu,Hindustani,Indian,Bharatiya,Hindi or something else. When there is so much struggle in conveying our identity then how people who consider even inter-caste marriages as taboo would accept Inter - Religion marriages. We are all united under our constitution which make all of us equal and grants freedom to follow any religion. An adult individual thus holds the freedom to choose his or her partner regardless to any religion.The constitution also declares India as Bharat or India and not as Hindustan which denotes its secular identity not related to a particular religion. How a Chris…

Gorakhpur Tragedy

Gorakhpur Tragedy
Amid increase crime report in UP where after swearing in of Yogi Adityanath as chief minister cases of murders, kidnapping, dacoities, rape, etc has increased many folds the fresh news came of the negligence in government hospital. At least 60 children have died over five days at the state-run Baba Raghav Das Medical College hospital in Gorakhpur.  The deaths are being blamed on infections and possible disruption of oxygen supply in the pediatric ward. 

The administration has rejected the claims of shortage of Oxygen as reason for deaths but the increase supply of Oxygen cylinders in the morning after the news broke out indicating otherwise. Isn’t it the negligence of the government hospital administration, health minister and Chief minister? Incidentally Gorakhpur was Yogi Adityanath’s Lok Sabha constituency. No compensation can fill the void of death of innocent children but there must be a time bound probe of the reasons behind the death and culprits must be puni…
