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 only sidelining all other communities as outsiders who need to follow this concept to prove adherence to their country. 

We all know elections in five state assemblies are round the corner. Attempts are made to polarize the voters. BJP by commenting and reacting on Owaisi is helping in two way polarization to get benefit in coming polls. Chanting this slogan is not a life or death issue for Muslims, they are from years chanting this slogan without feeling offended. Even Vande Mataram is comfortable with millions of Muslims it becomes problem when someone force you to say this or try to make it a compulsion to affirm your identity as an Indian. 

India is a multicultural country and constitution guarantees all their identity as a person and as a community no one is entitled to challenge it. We as Indians must not give these political parties opportunities to use us for their political gain and for Mr. Asaduddin Owaisi I have a suggestion to keep your views to yourself and not impose on all Muslims. Islam promotes love for motherland and if a slogan shows my love for my country I have no shame in saying it. I will end this post by repeating words from Javed Akhtar's Sahab's farewell speech that it is not my choice but my right to say 'Bharat Mata Ki Jay'. Jai Hind. God Bless India.

  1. It's sad to see them fighting over such issues when they need to direct their energies to fighting larger issues of national interest.

  2. The problem lies in forcing to chant slogans. I do not understand how these people have time to discuss such issues in assembly when there is loads to be done.

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.

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…

Braid Cutting - Truth or Rumors?

Braid Cutting - Truth or Rumor?

Mysterious braid (choti) cutting incidents has happened in Rajasthan, Haryana and Delhi where women mostly around 50 years of age has their braids cut without their knowledge by some invisible source causing fear among women in these areas. Women also fell unconscious during the time of braid cutting which left them clueless about the attacker and made the incident mysterious. Police who have recorded the statements of victims deny any black magic involved in this which is rumored in the video circulated in social media groups. They are asserting that some miscreants are behind the incident.
The video allegedly claims that a woman is on a mission to cut 1008 women braids in order to get invisibility power according to a black magic ritual. I heard this news around a month ago from someone whose relatives live in Rajasthan. The incident was not in news at that time, I denied him saying that these are rumors or acts of miscreants and I still believe miscr…

Naive Traveler : City of Nawabs - Lucknow

Naive Traveler : City of Nawabs - Lucknow


Lucknow is known as The City of Nawabs the royal ruler of the city which gave it culinary & cultural identity like the way of talking I noticed while interacting with the people. The place is beautiful and has many things which can attract tourists to visit this city but I don’t find it tourist friendly as I observed in the other cities I visited like Agra,Jaipur, Dehradun,etc. As we came out of the station, there were no tourist autos or taxis available for city sightseeing thus left you unaware of what to do.
If we haven’t researched about the places and things to eat we couldn’t explore the city the way we did.

With our knowledge of places to visit and to eat, we first hire a bus bust to the Chowk area where we found Rahim’s Hotel for famous RAHIM KI NIHARI-KULCHA. Nihari is a breakfast non-vegetarian dish available in both Buffalo & Goat meat. Its taste was totally different from what I have tested it in Delhi and the Kulcha was he…
