Girl Power in Rio

Girl Power In Rio


“The greatest happiness is achieving something which none believe you can
 – Prophet Mohammad”



Indian Olympic contingent was all time bigger so the expectations were high this time since we also have Nehwal, Bindra, Narang, Paes, Phogat, Mirza like champions who all have earned respect in international arenas. But today we have a bronze medalist and a silver medalist both of whom were never in the media limelight neither expert’s favorite before the Rio Olympics 2016. Sakshi Malik who have won bronze in women wrestling and PV Sindhu who won first ever women silver for India in badminton has ended the medal drought for the country. The third athlete which also came closer to winning and make India proud for qualifying for women gymnast is Dipa Karmakar who was also not among favorites.

This is also an eye opener for all those who believed women meant only for producing babies and to run the house. Even though there is no need to established women supremacy in every field to prove they are equal to man some still needs such achievements to praise Girl Power. Their achievements also questions sport reporting and expert sports panelists who were putting their money on already tried and tested players. They were mentioned for formalities only. Ironically their winning is now covered on first pages of newspapers as well as prime time slots on TV news.

India is a land of cricket here people eat, drink, bleed only cricket so achieving highest rewards in other sports than cricket is a marvelous thing. Governments as we all know are negligent towards these sports if started giving help to them then we can achieve much more successes in these fields. Indian schools concentrate only on academics, their motto is not all round development as a result of which we create mechanical individuals not interested in sports, art or crafts but on ways of earning money. We need to change our education system to make it pro-sports where all games are treated equally. A child must have choice in selecting the game of his/her liking.

Sakshi, Sandhu and Dipa have given us some wonderful moments to celebrate and cherish for years. Hope India cares for sports/sportsperson more in future so that we can get better results. God Bless India.

  1. The wonderful women will change the game of sports and showed their might. They deserve all respect and high time for parents to stop with this idiotic patriarchy of getting daughters married to produce babies or cook. Yes! Time to encourage other sports to develop and make as successful as cricket.

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…

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…
