Citizens of Tomorrow !

Citizens of Tomorrow !



If frequent rapes, day light murder were not enough to label Delhi a crime capital and the state where the values of society are declining rapidly this incident of killing of a teacher by students will definitely do so. A student expelled for poor attendance by a Hindi teacher Mukesh Kumar (50) at the government school in Nangloi, Delhi had barged into the classroom to confront him during the exam around 5 pm. His friend, who was writing the exam, left his seat and joined him. The police say the boys "lost their temper" and attacked the teacher with a knife. They punched him, stabbed him repeatedly and then ran away, leaving him bleeding on the floor. He was admitted to hospital where he died due to his injuries.

Both class 12th students were arrested but they instilled a permanent fear in all teachers which have brought the beautiful bond of student-teacher under threat. We say that schools are temple of education which raises teachers to the positio…

Naive Traveler - Dehradun Trip

Naive Traveler - Dehradun Trip

I and two of my friends planned Dehradun Trip on Eid holiday i.e 13th and 14th September 2016. Since 13th was the Eid day we booked a train (Dehradun Janshatabdi Express) which runs in evening. We reached the railway station by metro,the train was on schedule time we boarded it and reached Dehradun at around 10 in the night. Our hotel was already booked online so we searched for it and checked in without wasting anytime. 
Hotel Abhinandan Grand was at a walking distance from railway station. We checked in there at 10:20 but to our surprise there Kitchen was closed that early. Kitchen was closed at next day also at around 4 PM when we demanded tea and something to eat. Hotel was good for budget travelers but the Manager was rude in dealing with us when some confusion arises. Anyways let's concentrate on the journey and remember to avoid that hotel if you travels to Dehradun. More better and cheaper hotel are available near railway station.



We leave th…

Yaad Karo Kurbani!

Yaad Karo Kurbani!

On September 18, 2016 four terrorists attacked an Indian Army Brigade headquarters at the town of Uri near the Line of Control which killed 18 Indian Army Soldiers and injured about 30 army personnel. This is a second attack on army base in this year after the Pathankot Attack. The army which ensures our safety is unable to save its own base camps.
Did anyone care after the Pathankot Attacks to strengthen the safety measure of army base? From last one or two years the terrorists are mostly attacking police, CRPF and army personnel but in spite of these attacks authorities and government have no strategy to cater such attacks as a result we are losing precious life our soldiers. Every time there is an attack we blame it on Pakistan and in the case of Pathankot Attacks we reach to the extent of inviting their investigation agency to establish Pakistan link in those attacks but that move fall flat on the face of government and army when Pakistan denied any involvement…

Chaliyar River Challenge

Chaliyar River Challenge

The Chaliyar is a peaceful river which originates from the Elambalari Hills in the Wayanad plateau and empties in the Lakshadweep Sea.It is a peaceful river that runs through the Nilambur district of Kerala. It runs for roughly 70 KM into the Beypore Port. Chaliyar River Challenge by Clean Rivers Initiative facilitated by Jellyfish Water-sports came up with the idea of Kayaking for conservation of this river. 
Chaliyar was earlier a polluted river from the effluents of Gwalior Rayons factory at Mavoor which destroyed the marine life and caused cancer in the local villagers. Chaliyar Action Committee founded by K.A.Rahman under his leadership fought for the cause of river with the support of villagers which resulted in the closure of the factory. Since then the river has come a long way to regain its original beauty and now the organisation of program like Kayak for a cause is helping in creating more awareness about the conservation of river.

Book Review : With Blue Ink of The Oceans

Book Review : With Blue Ink of The Oceans
With Blue Ink of The Oceans is a poetry book by Anu Joshy. It is published by Virgin Leaf Books of Leadstart Publishing Pvt. Ltd. I have received this book from publishers. This collection of poems is a candid mirror that she holds against her soul and the society.



Cover: Cover seems simple to me. I think the ocean and the girls face are trying to depict the oceanic expressions expressed in this book. The idea of keeping it simple is good but covering the bigger area with the image would make cover more interesting.
Content: The book contains 55 poems from poetess' pen starting from 'Disowning Sorrows' and ending with 'Walking Into Ruins'. Poems are written in prose, conversational manner and rhyme. These poems expresses honesty of the poet in every emotion she portrayed through poems. The poems are of varied length and discovers love, society, self , friendship , etc in a totally different way.   Comment: The poems are as if s…

Woh Subha Kabhi To Aayegi?

Woh Subha Kabhi To Aayegi?
We all hope for a new dawn during Anna Movement against corruption and for ‘Swaraj’ (Self Governance referred as true form of democracy with direct people’s participation). Everybody was hopeful for uplift in Indian political system when Aam Aadmi Party was formed by Arvind Kejriwal who was one of the flag bearers in Anna Movement. Aam Aadmi Party promised revival of Indian politics with their different and honest approach towards it. But as Anna Movement proved RSS propaganda to uproot Congress government and establish Modi regime, Aam Aadmi Party too appeared empty in its promises. 
Some of the people associated with Anna Movement later campaigned for BJP and even fought elections on their ticket which clearly revealed their intentions in joining Anna Movement. Anna Hazare too become silent even when there is no ‘Lokpal’ appointed by the Modi Government in more than two years of its rule neither Lokpal Bill is as strong as demanded by him during the prote…
