A Doctor's Death

A Doctor's Death

A murder is always a shame for society but the way this murder was conducted and for the reason behind it I being a resident of Delhi is feeling embarrassed. I am talking about the murder of Dr Pankaj Narang a Dentist who lived in Vikaspuri, Delhi by a group of nine people. The event that followed after the murder on social media was also horrifying ridiculing our status of decent society.

It was an usual event that lead to such a big incident. Pankaj and his brother-in-law's son was playing cricket on road in front of their house when a speeding bike came and stopped in front of Pankaj's son saving him from the accident. This angered Pankaj, he scolded both the biker and the pillion. He seized their bike and asked them to bring their parents since one of them was a minor. They returned with cricket bats and sticks in their hand along with seven more people including a woman attacked Pankaj Narang in his home. They beat Dr Narang to death. The cries of he…

Book Review : Ishq Mein Shahar Hona

Book Review : Ishq Mein Shahar Hona.Ishq Mein Shahar Hona is written by famous NDTV Hindi News Anchor and Presenter Ravish Kumar. The book is published by Sarthak an initiative of Rajkamal Publication. In this book he has shared his feelings and experiences about a city in form of short stories or Laghu Prem Kahaniyan (Laprek). Vikram Nayak's art work for each story has enhanced stories for the readers. It is ironical that I am reviewing a Hindi book in English but I want to tell English readers to know about this experiment in Hindi genre. Moreover some English readers do understand Hindi but don't know what to read in it. This book is a good read for such readers.


Cover: Vikram Nayak's cover design reveals the Shahar (city) i.e Delhi which author has explored in this book. Delhi's monuments are visible in it. A couple walking on the road is an indication of lovers exploring this city in love with a different perspective. I like the title most it was the title which a…

Horses To Go For Species Change Operation

Horses To Go For Species Change Operation

Shaktimaan the police horse who was seriously injured during BJP protest in Dehradun is now demanding a species change operation. After amputation of his leg Shaktimaan and other police horses are demanding species change from horses to cows. While they were being attacked for being in police force 'Gau Raksha Samiti' of different states are attacking people for harming cows. They too were demanding such kind of Z plus security in which instead of harming them humans would kill humans. 
A horse on promise of anonymity has revealed that they are in touch of doctors in America for this operation. He referred to Jharkhand incident where two cattle traders were hanged to death for protecting cows as the precursor of this idea. He added that people are attacking them while they are going to the extent of killing for saving cows. He also told us about their application for government aid for this operation. 
According to some sources they wi…

Bharat Mata Ki Jay

Bharat Mata Ki Jay


Now 'Us versus Them' debate took a new turn with 'Bharat Mata Ki Jay' slogan. The controversy this time created by AIMIM chief and MP from Hyderabad Asaduddin Owaisi and with suspension of Waris Pathan an MLA of AIMIM from Maharashtra Assembly for not chanting this slogan the issue has taken an ugly turn. 
I find nothing wrong in saying Bharat Mata Ki Jay which means Long Live Mother India and I also find nothing wrong if someone wants to say 'Jai Hind', 'Jai Bharat', 'India is Great', 'Hindustan Zindabad' etc instead of Bharat Mata Ki Jay because phrases doesn't define patriotism feelings does. A woman is respectful in all forms and not only as mother similarly are all other slogans equally respectable as Bharat Mata Ki Jay. Do other nations in the world which don't give a face to their motherland or which don't depict her as goddess loves their country less than us?  By relating her to Hinduism we are on…

Nadiya Ke Uss Paar - The Art of Living

Nadiya Ke Uss Paar - The Art of Living



In ancient times saints and sages used to sit Nadiya Ke Uss Par or across the river to meditate in calmness for the world peace and order. Today a contemporary saint has taken this practice to an all new height to teach the world his art of living here in Delhi on Yamuna flood basin. Ever shrinking river Yamuna has reduced to a drain by negligence of government and ignorance of Delhihites is now posing a threat of irreparable loss to its flood basin due to this World Cultural Festival.
Rivers were never our government's priority not even when we consider them as god and not even after so many programs running from so many years to save them. 60% sewage water goes straight into the river Yamuna without treatment. It is on the verge of extinction when 57 million people are directly dependent on its water including farmers and fisherman. The various NGO's are working towards replenishment of the river but unless there is a strong will from …

The King of Good Times

The King of Good Times
There is a Hindi song from the movie Heer -Ranjha 'Yeh Duniya Ye Mehfil Mere Kaam Ki Nahin' which means that 'I have nothing to do with this world and the people here' strangely this line gives different inspiration to different people in the same situation. The indebted farmers commits suicide leaving this world and all its miseries while the industrialists left the country to live luxurious life in another part of the world when unable to pay their debt mocking and laughing the pathetic system.


The 'King of Good Times' Vijay Kingfisher Mallya is the latest in the list who left India after unable to pay bank dues of around Rs 7800 crore. His airline company is also defaulter for not paying salary of its employees. These employees are feeling stranded in this situation while the chairman remains busy in IPL and calendar launch. When State Bank of India announced Vijay Mallya as willful defaulter and freeze the payment of around Rs 500 cr…

Jacket Jeans Mein Aaya Kanhaiya

Jacket Jeans Mein Aaya Kanhaiya


Kanhaiya KumarJawaharlal Nehru University Student Union (JNUSU) president who was arrested by Delhi Police on charges of sedition after February 9 incident of alleged anti national activity smothered all his critics with an impressive speech after coming out on bail by Delhi High Court on 3rd March. Literally,'Jacket Jeans Mein Aaya Kanhaiya Sabki Band Bajane Ko.’ 
What he said holds ground if we factually examine all the evidence available at present in the public domain. Let’s talk about the anti India sloganeering by group of students lead by JNUSU president Kanhiaya Kumar.First of all FIR submitted by Delhi Police didn't mention any anti India and pro Pakistan slogans in the list of 29 slogans. Secondly five out of seven video tapes referred in FIR are doctored as found by forensic analysis. Finally the role played by Home Minister, HRD Minister, Delhi Police and some of the media channels in portraying that JNU was running by funds from Pak…

Book Review : The Game of Life - Stolen Hope

Book Review : The Game of Life - Stolen Hope Ramayana The Game of Life - Stolen Hope is the third book of The Game of Life series by Shubha Vilas. The book is published by Jaico Books. I have received this book from author who has also penned a beautiful personal message for me along with his signature. This book starts with Rama, Lakshmana and Sita's years in exile and ends with Sita's kidnap by King of Lanka Ravana. Read Review of Book -2 Here : The Game of Life - Shattered Dreams.




Cover : Cover depicts Rama's encounter with Jatayu. Jatayu who has an important role to play in this book appears apt to me on cover but featuring Sita's kidnapping on cover would have been better idea. Perhaps he has maintained the series's cover continuity to feature Rama on cover.
Plot:Rama, Sita and Lakshmana were spending their exile days happily in the forest. Lakshmana did his best to serve his worshiped brother and sister-in-law. They met various sages and helped them in getting…
