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…

Amritsar & Wagah Border Trip

Amritsar & Wagah Border Trip


Amritsar is the city of Golden Temple the sacred pilgrimage for Sikhs. The area around is recently developed beautifully to promote tourism by renovating it with related themes and including some modern day structures which compliment the place nicely. Historical Jalianwala Bagh where Britishers fired mercilessly on innocent Indians also lies in that area and it now has a monument as a remembrance to those who killed in that massacre. Another important thing in the area is Partition Museum build inside Town Hall which encloses memories of partition with having things donated by people effected by the tragedy along with the historical accounts of that time. But photography is not allowed inside the museum. 






I also visited Ranjit Singh Panorama Museum which housed weapons of Ranjit Singh army and has some depictions of Raja Ranjit Singh's life through painting and models. There is also Gobindgarh Fort which you must visit for the 7D film on life of R…

My Brother,My Role Model

My Brother,My Role Model

In the course of life it is not the one man or one moment which inspires to be better and the best but anyone you come across in your life teaches you something valuable. These lessons we learn from them improves our lives and make us better making these men our role model whom we tries to imitate.

When I was a child my families financial condition was not very good. My father suffered a huge loss in his business. One or the other borrower queues daily at our door for their money while we didn't have enough money to afford even food. My father was shattered, it was at that time my mother and brother stood for him. My brother leaved his study and started learning some work. He learned machine embroidery work in only four months for which others took a year or so to learn and then he started his own work with some financial support from my parents who at that time opened a grocery shop.

I was very young at that time but I still remembered that my brother ha…
