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 help by Dr Narang and his family remain unheard by their neighbors and police as usual reached late on the spot.

Seeing involvement of some Muslims in this incident RSS/BJP workers reached the spot to give the incident a communal turn, thankfully family denied any political interference in their moment of grief but that doesn't put off these rumor mongers on social media. From cricket bats to knives, from group of nine to mob of hundreds and from nearby slum clusters to Bangladeshi migrants, these people try to communalize this issue in every possible way. Here I want to appreciate Delhi police especially IPS Monika Bhardwaj who tweeted correct facts related to the incident. She thwarted communal polarization by declaring that 5 out of 9 accused were Hindus and none of them was from Bangladesh. Sadly she received abuses from those whose agenda she has sabotaged.

What has happened to our society? Why there is so much anger inside us? Why neighbors not interfered when the attackers came? We are disintegrating as a society of humans into the groups with same ideology, same faith, same locality, same community these identities have subdued our identity as humans. We forget that what is happening with somebody else could happen to us if we remain silent during injustice on other. This incident or any other such incidents are highly condemn-able whatever may be the religion of the attackers. It is disheartening that some people try to gain political mileage out of personal grief, we must be alert and aware enough to suppress such anti social elements during these incidents. My condolences for Dr Pankaj Narang's family and I appeal to Delhi police to treat four juveniles in this case as adults for stricter punishment for them. Till next post God Bless India.

  1. Makes me wonder what the youth are becoming by agitating with so much violence. And, the despicable behavior of extremists on social media stoking up communal fire is a shame. Glad that the lady office came out with the truth.

  3. This is truly horrifying! Why are people becoming monsters? Such acts should be taken very seriously and highly condemned. A crime is a crime whether you are an adult or a juvenile.

  4. Why is there so much anger in us? You ask in your post. Experience, I would say. I lost my job soon after modi took charge in Delhi. One godman swallowed my school with its 15 acres of land in Delhi. My wife too lost her job since she worked in the same school. Many people lost their jobs. How do you expect them not to be angry? How much land do these godmen require?

    What is happening is terrible for ordinary people. Only the rich and influential are benefitting from the modi government. Gene the anger.

  5. ये सही कहा आपने लोगों में गुस्सा जरूरत से ज्यादा बढ़ गया हैं। परन्तु आजकल भारत में हर मुद्दे को राजनैतिक या धार्मिक नज़रिए से देखा जाने लगा है, यह बात ज्यादा खतरनाक है। अब क्या कहें कि शुक्र है कि उनकों मारने वाले हिन्दू भी थे, अगर बंगलादेशी या अन्य जाति के होते तो सोचिए कितने दंगे हो जाते तो ये भी कितना शर्मनाक होगा मगर हत्या तो हुई है।

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…
