The Land of Rich and Powerful.

The Land of Rich and Powerful.




It was midnight but a long cue was waiting for the opening of shop to take hold of it. They were waiting for over a month to get hold of this thing which would increase their status. The government has also taken necessary steps to promote the sale of this thing in our country. Prime Minister also uses it and wants this unique item in hands of every Indian that’s why he has given favorable conditions to this US Company to Make in India.  I hope this would increase the sale of this product in India.

It was 6 am in the morning.  People were waiting for shop opening to buy essential items used daily in homes. They work hard to earn money for buying these products. The price of one of the product has risen so much that they were going away without buying it. The government despite of poor monsoon was not prepared for this to happen. Perhaps so many options in food items restricted government to make policy for it. This is product of India so PM is also not bothered for its availability in the country.

Are you wondering what I am talking about or have you guessed the commodities I am talking about? The first thing for which a class of citizen only 1% of total population is bothered is new luxurious iPhone 6 and the second thing which became out of reach for about 40% population and is burning holes in the pockets of rest of the population is essential pulses. Its an irony that pulses are costlier than chicken in a country which is promoting vegetarianism (but only among poor as canned and processed beef is available in luxurious hotels for the guests). 


Bhook Gayi, Vyapar Gaya, Gaya Desh Se Pyaar,
Aise Achche Din Ka Kisko Tha Intezaar.                  



High rises came on public village land in Noida (U.P) which was now ordered by court to vacate within two months. First villagers suffered and now middle class who bought those flats are suffering, the rich and powerful builders who used their influences to illegally own these lands earned a huge sum of money will now let off with meager compensations. 

Governments in this country are working in giving more money and power to rich and powerful and for the poor they have communal riots, eating habit debates, religious extremism, burden of culture and traditions, regionalism and other such issues to divert this 99% population from wrongdoings of that 1% population. Some intellectuals (writers, scholars) when question this attitude of governments they were declared as anti-national by people within the government. Recent reactions of government on returning of Sahitya Academy Awards by some writers could make you believe that these writers are actually terrorists.

I have no words to give my concluding remarks for this situation. Day after day country's situation is deteriorating and I see nothing happening on this front. This government is failure at every step be it foreign policy, economic policy or social policy. The steps taken by previous government for their uplift has been revoked or diluted by this government. Intolerance is on a rise and common people are also frustrated. Pollution, environmental issues, gender equality, hunger and other issues like that have no place in public discussion. I am ending with these words, 'God Bless India!'

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…

Burning Bengal

Burning Bengal 
When the nation is in a fix with its relations with China the home is also not right as Bengal is burning from two sides. You can say that I am picking the topic late but I don’t want to spread the rumor without confirming all the sources which is giving news information. Here I should mention that don’t overreact on social media hypes until news are coming from authentic news agencies.
Basirhat communal violence which triggered with a controversial Facebook post by a class 11th student took an ugly turn when Muslim mobs started vandalizing properties of the Hindus but this is only the half story. The calm which prevailed after Thursday is revealing the story that many Muslims saved their Hindu friends and neighbors by confronting the mob. Hindu-Muslim groups are now helping those who have financial losses in shops/business to stand again by helping them with money (Read Indian Express front page of 9th July 2017). Locals knew that mob that attacked in their area were …

Naive Traveler : Delhi Darshan # 4

Naive Traveler : Delhi Darshan # 4


Delhi as we all know is habitat and destroyed several times in different eras since it always remained the central city for each empire. As a result of these variant rulers from ancient times to the British era, Delhi enjoys the status of being witness to their grandeur and glory. Thus we the people of modern day India are privileged to see and feel that aura and ambiance. This was my fourth trip of sightseeing in Delhi and believe me I need many more days to explore the Delhi to its fullest. 
This time I chose the places known for its haunted experiences like Bhooli Bhatiyar, Feroz Shah Kotla Fort, Rajon Ki Baoli in Mehrauli Archaeological Park, Giyas-ud-Din Tughlaq Tomb  and Tughlaqabad Fort.The scorching heat of next day of heat digested all our energy so we also visited Indira Gandhi Memorial an all air conditioned museum which rejuvenated us. Since it was not far from Safdurjung Tomb we also give a visit to that place also. 
Now talking about m…
