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.

    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…

Burning Bengal

Burning Bengal 
When the nation is in a fix with its relations with China the home is also not right as Bengal is burning from two sides. You can say that I am picking the topic late but I don’t want to spread the rumor without confirming all the sources which is giving news information. Here I should mention that don’t overreact on social media hypes until news are coming from authentic news agencies.
Basirhat communal violence which triggered with a controversial Facebook post by a class 11th student took an ugly turn when Muslim mobs started vandalizing properties of the Hindus but this is only the half story. The calm which prevailed after Thursday is revealing the story that many Muslims saved their Hindu friends and neighbors by confronting the mob. Hindu-Muslim groups are now helping those who have financial losses in shops/business to stand again by helping them with money (Read Indian Express front page of 9th July 2017). Locals knew that mob that attacked in their area were …

Naive Traveler : Delhi Darshan # 4

Naive Traveler : Delhi Darshan # 4


Delhi as we all know is habitat and destroyed several times in different eras since it always remained the central city for each empire. As a result of these variant rulers from ancient times to the British era, Delhi enjoys the status of being witness to their grandeur and glory. Thus we the people of modern day India are privileged to see and feel that aura and ambiance. This was my fourth trip of sightseeing in Delhi and believe me I need many more days to explore the Delhi to its fullest. 
This time I chose the places known for its haunted experiences like Bhooli Bhatiyar, Feroz Shah Kotla Fort, Rajon Ki Baoli in Mehrauli Archaeological Park, Giyas-ud-Din Tughlaq Tomb  and Tughlaqabad Fort.The scorching heat of next day of heat digested all our energy so we also visited Indira Gandhi Memorial an all air conditioned museum which rejuvenated us. Since it was not far from Safdurjung Tomb we also give a visit to that place also. 
Now talking about m…
