Delhi - Drive,Design and Connect

Delhi - Drive, Design and Connect



Delhi is a city which drives you crazy when you look at its age old architecture, feel its zealous past and peep into its mystical history. From ancient architectures to the modern marvels this city offers everything you crave for. The rulers which have ruled India from this city designed it in their own style. Even now in the modern times it is the center of all political and governmental activities. It was and it is the point of connect of people of this country. The special thing about Delhi is that it belongs to everyone. People from all states have settled in this city and has enriched it with their culture and traditions. I like it for its composite culture where a road (Chandni Chowk) having a Temple, a Church, a Gurudwara and a Mosque displays the India full of different cultures living together in harmony.




This city drives in you the real spirit India. No other city offers you the hullabaloo of news makers, the patriotic flavor of armed forces, the charm of ancient world, the charisma of modernity and a sense of power. The city in which flows the fuel of energy and enthusiasm of India. Since this city is driven by power it always remain a focal point of change which helped in churning our democracy for better results. (Remember J.P.Movement, Anna Movement.) 

It is designed by different rulers at different times according to their own tastes and comforts. From Hastinapur to Indraparastha, from Tughlagabad to Daulatabad, from Mehrauli to Old Delhi and to Lutyens Delhi it is fully equipped with different flavors of architecture, culture and traditions. In a way it is a timeline of history of India. Most recently the addition of Metro Rail project which have joined, combined and connected different eras of Delhi have given a unique addition to its design. 

It is a place which connects with everybody easily due to its diversity. It is this city where the phrase unity in diversity suits the best. You can have Goa's Christmas, Maharashtrian Ganesh Chaturthi along with Bihar's Chath Puja, if there is a glimpse of Bengali tradition during Durga Puja then you have also fragrances of South Indian festivals of Onam, Pongal,etc. There is a busyness of Eid' one road and buzz of Diwali on another. Similarly you have food here which not only connects you to India but to the world. Just ask for anything Chinese, Thai, Italian, Mediterranean, Mughlai, Hyderabadi, Gujrati, etcetera, etcetera and they are available to sooth your palate. Moreover since no one is from Delhi, this city is for everyone and besides feeling connected to traditions and cultures of different parts of India you feel connected to you country and yourself.

This city binds India together like Tata Motors which by providing different vehicle range is catering to the needs of every household of India. I sum up Delhi in words of Prasoon Joshi 'Yeh Delhi Hai Mere Yaar, Bus Ishq Mohabbat Pyaar' which means that this is the city which is only filled with love.

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…

The Masked Life

The Masked Life


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.

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…
