Heartless Delhi

Heartless Delhi

Indian Bloggers


It was a saying in India that Mumbai belongs to rich while Delhi to people with big hearts (Mumbai Paisewalo Ki, Delhi Dilwalo Ki) but the incident that happened early morning of 11th August in West Delhi's Subhash Nagar area is enough to show how big heart of Delhi is. Matibool a man who work two shifts to run his family was hit by a milk carrying over-speeding three wheeler vehicle when he was returning from night shift at 5:40 am. The milk delivery man stopped his tempo, examines the victim who was bleeding after striking with a nearby pole looked around and ran away with his vehicle. A rickshaw puller who came to see Matibool instead of helping took away his mobile phone. In the 30 minutes that it took for a friend to spot Matibool and run for help, 140 cars, 82 three-wheelers, 181 bikers and 45 pedestrians passed the dying man without helping. Among them was a police van that responds to emergencies.

He died when the hospital was only half kilometer away with him humanity also died a slow death. The Delhi people who always remained at the forefront in displaying their support for people’s right didn't help to protect someone's right to live. The animals in this country enjoy more human rights than the humans. The people didn't even care to call the ambulance. The tempo driver was arrested but how will it help the family of seven which lost its only bread earner. It is sad that people don't come to help accident victims even after Supreme Court directions that the person who brings the victim will not be involved in any legalities of the case. Neither police will force him/her to be witness of the case.

The similar case happened few years back in Jaipur also when a man cried for help on a busy highway but none came to help save the lives of his wife and daughter. Here I have one question from the authorities also. Why these CCTV cameras didn’t have an observation center which can alert police if the incident happens on a particular road. This could save a precious life. People must also think of their actions. What happened to Matibool can happen to anyone of us in such heartless cities. Helping an injured reach the hospital would just waste your few minutes and nothing else. Let’s pledge together to help any injured on road. May god give strength to Matibool’s family and sense to all those who passed that road without helping him. God Bless Delhi. God Bless India.

  3. It is really not shocking if you know Delhi. It never had a heart despite the vaunted saying about its 'dil'. It is a city of most selfish people, fraudulent godmen and criminal politicians.

  6. Thanks for sharing nice post

    There are several low cost Nasha Mukti Kendra in Delhi that have enough money services within budget. I know, we all hear roughly the high class pamper centers where the skillfully-to-make a get your hands on of and dexterously-known grow get their rehab, but these can cost more in a hours of day, than some of us make in a month, or even a year.

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…

Hindi Hain Hum Watan Hai Hindustan Hamara?

(Inter - Religion marriage still taboo among Indians ? What is your take on it .)

We as Indians are still confused for our cultural identity i.e who we are as residents of this country. Hindu,Hindustani,Indian,Bharatiya,Hindi or something else. When there is so much struggle in conveying our identity then how people who consider even inter-caste marriages as taboo would accept Inter - Religion marriages. We are all united under our constitution which make all of us equal and grants freedom to follow any religion. An adult individual thus holds the freedom to choose his or her partner regardless to any religion.The constitution also declares India as Bharat or India and not as Hindustan which denotes its secular identity not related to a particular religion. How a Chris…
