My Doomsday Moment

My Doomsday Moment




I was excited for my first day of my first job at McDonald's Rohtak. This job was suitable for me as it allow me to continue my studies. I was prepared for hard work because my friend who worked there told me about extra workloads for newcomers. It was after I delivered my first order mob of hundred people entered in the mall where my workplace my McD was also situated and started destroying everything. I was frightened with their screams and shouts. They were not only destroying property but also looting things and attacking people. Soon some twenty to twenty five people with lathis in their hand also entered in the McDonald. I was near the entrance, they pushed me down and started beating me. I was hoping that someone would come and save me but all staff was receiving the same treatment even girls were not spared. They started setting the mall on fire, somehow we all came out before the fire started. I was witnessing my workplace in blaze. Our manager told us to go home now. My home was not very far from the mall so I reached home receiving few more blows from the people on the road.

When I reached home my mother was standing and crying outside with my younger sister as our Jat landlord threw them out of the house. She told her to wait till her husband and son reached home but he didn't listen to her. Our things were scattered on the road many of which were picked up by the agitators. After sometime my father came whose condition wasn't different from me. He took us to our relatives nearby where things were controlled by the army. My mother was worried about my elder sister who hasn't returned home from her work from Murthal. My father has informed her to come to this new place where we were staying before he came to pick us but it was long time ago. As night approached my father was also worrying for her. It was then we heard knock on the door. My sister entered with torn clothes, wounds and bruises were visible on her body. My mother hugged her and started crying, my father remained still for few minutes and then collapsed on the ground. I lost my workplace, my home, my father, my sister was raped and soon fire engulfed that house in which we were staying with all its occupants.

  1. I will never understand why people who have the strength to burn a whole state, need reservation. The government is mum and scared. Your post written from a victim's point of view is really nice.

  2. You brought tears in my eyes. I am moved by this post and can't understand such hatred in attacking innocent people with a Maun Govt to whom this situation is a boon. Sad that such apathy and law and order is not reinforced. Thought provoking, the post touched my nerves.

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…

Amritsar & Wagah Border Trip

Amritsar & Wagah Border Trip


Amritsar is the city of Golden Temple the sacred pilgrimage for Sikhs. The area around is recently developed beautifully to promote tourism by renovating it with related themes and including some modern day structures which compliment the place nicely. Historical Jalianwala Bagh where Britishers fired mercilessly on innocent Indians also lies in that area and it now has a monument as a remembrance to those who killed in that massacre. Another important thing in the area is Partition Museum build inside Town Hall which encloses memories of partition with having things donated by people effected by the tragedy along with the historical accounts of that time. But photography is not allowed inside the museum. 






I also visited Ranjit Singh Panorama Museum which housed weapons of Ranjit Singh army and has some depictions of Raja Ranjit Singh's life through painting and models. There is also Gobindgarh Fort which you must visit for the 7D film on life of R…

My Brother,My Role Model

My Brother,My Role Model

In the course of life it is not the one man or one moment which inspires to be better and the best but anyone you come across in your life teaches you something valuable. These lessons we learn from them improves our lives and make us better making these men our role model whom we tries to imitate.

When I was a child my families financial condition was not very good. My father suffered a huge loss in his business. One or the other borrower queues daily at our door for their money while we didn't have enough money to afford even food. My father was shattered, it was at that time my mother and brother stood for him. My brother leaved his study and started learning some work. He learned machine embroidery work in only four months for which others took a year or so to learn and then he started his own work with some financial support from my parents who at that time opened a grocery shop.

I was very young at that time but I still remembered that my brother ha…
