Mehnat Karne Wale!

Mehnat Karne Wale!



There is an old Hindi song from the movie Mazdoor(1983) which says ' Hum Mehnatkash Is Duniya Se Jab Apna Hissa Mangenge, Ek Baagh Nahin Ek Khet Nahin Hum Saari Duniya Mangenge'  it means that working class if ever ask for its share from the world then it wouldn't be just a garden or a field but the whole world. It in simple language implies that the world is created by working class and they have complete right on each and every thing. This song resonates in my mind yesterday (6th June 2017) when I watched the news of farmers killing in Madhya Pradesh's Mandsaur who are protesting for increase in MSP (Minimum Support Price) which is less than their actual cost of production. 

At least 6 farmers killed in this police firing and many injured. I didn't understand why the need for firing on farmers arise who were protesting for their rights. We say that farmers are important to us because they provide us food but in the name of facilities to their service to nation governments have given them nothing. Farmers' suicide is at all time high. In last three years of Modi government it has increased up to 40% in spite of various promises like increase in MSP by this government. Unless these announcements on rallies become reality on papers nothing could help the farmers. The middle class the so called lifeline of the country who feel like fighting on borders in case of killing of soldiers didn't feel the boil in their blood in the case of farmers killing. 

The unrest in farmers is not new. It was constant in all governments in last fifteen years with around 234642 farmers suicide in India highest in states of Maharshtra (56215), Madhya Pradesh (19278) and Chattisgarh (16153) two of these states (MP and Chattigarh) are ruled by BJP in these fifteen years. Don't we have concern for our farmers? Didn't we at the time of framing policies consider farmers first? If not then it's a serious issue because we don't have either a second option for their employment and the country where unemployed are increasing alarmingly creating more unemployed will double the problem. 

I strongly condemn these farmers killing in Mandsaur and appeal the governments for loan waiver. If Uttar Pradesh can waive off farmers' loan then why not these states which are also ruled by BJP. Media houses which are ignoring such important issue should introspect on their credibility. Licking government boots will only instill misinformation in minds of the people. I also like to appeal citizen of this country to make your opinion about an issue by collecting information from different sources rather than depending on one channel or newspaper or social media. Till next post God Bless India.

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…
