Dope Break Hope

Dope Break Hope


India is sending its biggest contingent ever in the Rio Olympics 2016 which automatically increases chances of highest medal tally ever but the doping clouds have raise doubts over these hopes. I will not name any player here because charges on them are still on primary stage. But whatever be the result of doping tests this time, India is the third highest country in the doping list which is a shameful thing. The country which cares least for sports this high number in negative aspect of the game is alarming. 

Our governments were always negligent of sports or if they care it is for one or two sports only. The players which reached national level in various sports like wrestling, shot put, athletics and other such games do this with their hard work, self training and passion. Government's support comes only after their achievement in particular field. Some sportsperson belongs to villages and some are even unaware of the presence of something like ban drugs which make them vulnerable to consume ban substances. Lack of proper training coupled with government's apathy dragged players to drug abuse. 

The country which has so many problems to deal with cares little for its sports bodies, their funding and their requirements. Moreover the people who are heading theses sports bodies and looking after their administration are politicians than sportsman who know their personal need (read money) better and not what sportsman required for eating, training and resting. Indians cherish achievements even if it's in other sports than cricket because life here gives few moments to enjoy and celebrate thus they celebrate with success of the nation. 

Governments both central and sports should be more serious towards sports so that talented people can be traced and trained under experts. Players should know what are banned drugs and which things meant for their consumption have such kind of drugs so that they avoid these things. Recently those who were found positive in dope test suspected conspiracy by their rivals and if this is happening the future of sports is in grave danger. Let's hope we win the highest number of medals in this Olympic and despite of controversies our players play with high positive spirit.

  4. Even today the mentality is that of jobs. If one gets basic living expenses then it would be easy to simply focus on the job of training. And the needs of our sportsmen and women are not that much.

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. 
We can avoid Indoor ai…

RIP Tom Alter

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…
