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 in the attack after examining the site. 

I know it is tough to stop infiltration in difficult terrains of Line of Control but it is not difficult to equip the Indian soldiers with better arms and artillery. According to an army report 80% of ammunition/arms/artillery used by soldiers is outdated. Soldiers are not provided with bullet proof jackets and such frequent attacks also shows negligence of army in protecting its base. There is a call for war from every corner of the country but according to CAG report Indian army ammunition won't last 20 days of war (Read Here). This is a serious matter for a country which lives in the constant threat of terrorist attacks. After every attack there are demands for retaliation but no one demanded safety for army-men. The political establishment of India on the other hand uses these martyrs to bake their political breads by playing with emotions of people for the soldiers. 

Until Pakistan is not ready to punish people involved in Mumbai Attacks, Pathankot Attacks and other such attacks there should be no diplomatic relations between both the countries. India should boycott the meetings of organization where Pakistan is present; this will pressurize other nations to put pressure on Pakistan for action on terrorists because no nation will think of leaving a strategic partner like India. Cultural ties through artists should be strengthened and they should be used as tools to promote friendship in common people of both the nation. Direct trade treaties between both the nations should be nullified and any special status to Pakistan should be cancelled. These are my suggestions but government knows the best for the nation and its people. I like to advice the government and minister to comment less on relations of both the nation neither in the negative aspect nor in the positive way. 

I appeal you to maintain two minute silence and remember all those who have lost their lives in terrorist’s attacks all over the country after reading this post. God Bless India.

  1. I can so understand your anguish and a need to see a result. But please see the change government has brought. India is making a strong stand on the global arena, there were times when UN and other global superpowers would turn down India pleas saying it is an internal issue. It has taken long to establish that act of terrorism is never a local issue. Today the world stands with us and right measures are being taken to establish Pak as a terror state.
    While I agree that after Pathankot this happening is a major lapse, but it can get challenging given we have close to 2900 kms of border to guard. The military has full freedom to take relevant action and the approach is two throng 1. After the attack they are expecting a retaliation, why do something they want is to do, we will do it hard and strong as per our strategy. 2. While we are not scared of the pea sized puny country that Pak is we should also not forget that this beggar nation has not much to lose and their nukes are in delicate hands. You would have read US telling them to curb their nuke policy and they have flatly refused.
    India is bound by treaties and acts as a responsible nation which means that we will not be the first one to use nuke unless attacked upon while Pak is not bound in any such way.
    Lastly on lack of effective defense equipment including jackets, there was an article in Jan 2016 where close to 200,000 latest jackets were being procured for our soldiers, it got cleared after 10 years of wait. We all also know of the fighter jet procurements. I have not seen so much progress in previous governments.
    We can’t forget the major fact that we are a very big nation and can crush Pakistan in nearly 14 days but war hampers progress too and we aren’t no to war but what I see if that the government is trying to corner Pak in more than one way.

    1. I appreciate government's action in cornering Pakistan but I hardly aspect anything from Pak looking at their internal conflicts. I am consider more about our security forces which are not well equipped to tackle modern day terrorists

  3. Well Said ... Truly , USA can travel across Globe when they feel their integrity is threatened and what we do is go and appeal to USA , CHINA to please ask Pakistan to stop and we get happy with it . Even when these two country fund Billions of dollar each year to PAK for strategic reasons of their own .

    It's high time , not to go for a nuclear war but atleast plan and wipe out extremist from the neighborhood . Those extremist who really control pakistan rather than govt. which is actaully a puppet .

    Else we will keep losing our good men for nothing .. and yes they deserve at least 2 min silence from us .

  4. We have become spineless where there is a lack of willingness to make our army stronger in terms of ammunitions and guns. High time we invest massively. I agree it's high time to stop trading with Pakistan and move for sanctions against them at the international level or suspend all peace talks. The time is now.

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…
