Stand Still

Stand Still



I am a bit lazy in a sense that I don't bother to spend time on things like hair cutting,shaving to enhance my looks and that put me in strange conditions many times. My mother,sisters,brother,sister in law all insists me to shave daily but I prefer to avoid their angry looks and commands,they give me examples of other boys of my age who are regular visitors of men's salon and one can hardly see them in beard and moustache. They said that my stubble and unkempt  look present me older than my age and that it made me look dirty.

One day I went to a salon for hair trimming and shaved off my beard and moustache after about a month when I returned home my niece who is only one and a half years older was playing with her toys. Usually she ran towards me when I call her but that day my clean shaven look bowled her over , she stand still and didn't come to me instead hide herself behind her mother. I don't know she was shy or afraid of me. After a while she recognized me then came to me and kissed on my cheek which she used to avoid due to my heavy beard.Since than my habits have not changed but now I shave quite often to not to shock her again.

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…

Amritsar & Wagah Border Trip

Amritsar & Wagah Border Trip


Amritsar is the city of Golden Temple the sacred pilgrimage for Sikhs. The area around is recently developed beautifully to promote tourism by renovating it with related themes and including some modern day structures which compliment the place nicely. Historical Jalianwala Bagh where Britishers fired mercilessly on innocent Indians also lies in that area and it now has a monument as a remembrance to those who killed in that massacre. Another important thing in the area is Partition Museum build inside Town Hall which encloses memories of partition with having things donated by people effected by the tragedy along with the historical accounts of that time. But photography is not allowed inside the museum. 






I also visited Ranjit Singh Panorama Museum which housed weapons of Ranjit Singh army and has some depictions of Raja Ranjit Singh's life through painting and models. There is also Gobindgarh Fort which you must visit for the 7D film on life of R…

My Brother,My Role Model

My Brother,My Role Model

In the course of life it is not the one man or one moment which inspires to be better and the best but anyone you come across in your life teaches you something valuable. These lessons we learn from them improves our lives and make us better making these men our role model whom we tries to imitate.

When I was a child my families financial condition was not very good. My father suffered a huge loss in his business. One or the other borrower queues daily at our door for their money while we didn't have enough money to afford even food. My father was shattered, it was at that time my mother and brother stood for him. My brother leaved his study and started learning some work. He learned machine embroidery work in only four months for which others took a year or so to learn and then he started his own work with some financial support from my parents who at that time opened a grocery shop.

I was very young at that time but I still remembered that my brother ha…
