Patriotism On Sale

Patriotism On Sale



Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis is offering a great scheme for all those who wish to skip the police action against any hooliganism and goondaism. Raj Thackerey the chief of Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) is the first recipient of this scheme. Devendra Fadnavis called him to his office after his party workers started threatening Cinema owners against screening of Karan Johar's Ae Dil Hai Mushkil for having a Pakistani actor Fawad Khan. In a closed door meeting where Karan Johar was also present mediator Devendra Fadnavis gave go ahead to the idea of Raj Thackerey of depositing 5 crore Indian rupees by the film producers in an army fund in lieu of allowing Pakistan actor staring film screening in Mumbai and Maharashtra. 

Kofee with Karan host was delighted with this handsome ransom saving him from financial and artistic loss. Experts believe this idea could be a game changer as parties like MNS & Shiv Sena could help contribute millions to the army fund since many film released in India are opposed by them regularly. MNS sources told that they now for the sake of the country would find more faults in the film to protest against them and then demand to contribute in the army fund which would depend on the budget of the film. Farhan Akhtar and Sharukh Khan who are the producers of another Pakistan actor Mahira Khan staring film appreciated this step and asked if they need to deposit this amount before or after the protest for their film started by MNS workers. 

Sources close to the Maharashtra CM believes that he may extend this scheme for gangsters, smugglers and thieves by asking them what they demand for stopping their illegal activities and still look patriotic in front of the nation. Previous governments were criticized by those filmmakers whose films were protested by MNS and Shiv Sena then for not thinking about this wonderful idea. Better late than never, this scheme would be revolutionary in Indian context. Not only other states but other countries are willing to follow this idea thanks to Devendra Fadnavis.

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…
