Diary Confessions  - 7

'I was appointed the CVO ( Chief Vigilance Officer ) of this coveted medical institute two years back. Little did I hope that I would do anything in this department of such a prestigious institution known world over but to my surprise I unearthed about a dozen of scams in almost every department from illegally renting hospital space to selling medicines outside to security guard appointment scam ,etc. The politicians and bureaucrats dogs were treated with respect where humans die unattended. I thought that was my duty as a CVO to bring in light these scams and recommended them for CBI (Central Bureau of Investigation ) inquiry.

Few days back the newly appointed health minister removed me saying that I was not eligible for this post which I was holding for two years. Strange ! I was transferred to another state. Today morning I decided to aboard the train without knowing that whole city and nation was behind me, supporting me for what I did. When I reached the platform they gathered around me asking not to go as everyone was standing with me. Tears rolled down my eyes seeing honesty and truth still holds value in today's world. They lifted me on their shoulders and I missed my train.'

Wait Over

Wait Over

The train was approaching towards the station and John was still missing from her sight,"will he come" , Martha's sparse mind questioned impulsively.

They met last month near downtown church and became the ointment of each other's morose hearts as they
were entangled in estranged marriages.

They decided to divorce their spouses to be with each other but John was hesitant about this decision because he felt that her wife still loved him.

Martha assured him to talk to his wife and made her understand about their relationship after which they would leave this town.

As she was waiting for him at the railway station sorting out things with his wife, he came accompanied by police force to arrest her for killing his wife and storing her body pieces in the wooden box she was carrying.

Manipur's Mardaani

Manipur's Mardaani

A 70 year old man calls for a hunger strike till death gathers thousands of supporters in Delhi and a nation wide protest follows resulted in change of government as this caused backed by political forces for political gains. On the other hand a 28 year old lady started a hunger strike for injustices was arrested on charges of committing suicide and force fed through tubes. She is fighting for others through indefinite strike for 14 years now. She is Irom Chanu Sharmila regarded as 'Iron lady of Manipur' or Maingoubi ( "the fair one").

On 2nd November 2000, she began a hunger strike which is still ongoing. Her primary demand to the Indian government is the complete repeal of the AFSPA (Armed Forces (Special Powers ) Act 1958) which has been blamed for violence in Manipur and other parts of northeast India. This act is criticized for the inhumanity and dictatorship attached to it. Armed forces in order to control situation many times target innocent civilians. On pretext of this act soldiers rape women, hold mass massacre, allegedly detain civilians and so on. The people of Kashmir valley have similar demands for this act which also got unheard.

She maintained that she was protesting against a draconian law and her hunger strike would continue till its annulment. She advocated this cause also during her detention in hospital. She was released by the trial court on Wednesday ( 20th August 2014 ) after a trial judge found no evidence to support charges filed in 2000 by prosecutors in Manipur that she was trying to commit suicide by refusing food. If this is happening in independent India then how it is different from British rule where similar things happened with those on Satyagraha or hunger strikes for protests.

So many questions came in my mind when I think about this situation in northeastern India and Kashmir that why a law which is against democracy is enforced for so long ? Why the situation is still out of control? Is the power abuse by military in those areas creating more tension among the masses ? Why government changed but this law not repealed ? We may not find answer to these questions as our politics is excellent in hiding and manipulating the truth.

I salute this lady to stand and fight for the rights of others. My support is with her. I hope a day will come soon when she swallows down something from her throat. I also appeal both state and center government to look in to the matter with utter importance and find some solution to this as we are a democratic country and not a country ruled by military. We also have responsibility to spread awareness about her cause and not to neglect issues of northeast. Since PM Narender Modi showed her concern towards northeastern states during his election rallies I hope he would show some seriousness now also when he is in power and in the position to change.

My House, My Home

My House, My Home

'Home is the mirror of personalities of people living in it.' 

Our houses are our partners of joy, sharer of griefs and witnesses of our dreams. They are the place we spend the most of our lifetimes. They silently comforts us in every situation and now with initiative by makemyhome.com and BlogAdda we are getting chance to comfort them. To seriously think of making our wonderful houses our proud and more beautiful homes.

I often think that we are detaching ourselves from traditional arts and values in our tryst with modernity which is making our younger generations ignorant about these art and crafts. I would like to re-do my house in traditional style with things like Marwar Stores Painted Peacock Wall Clock  , Aapno Rajasthan Lantern-048 and Jeel Koko Maison Inc Foil Printed Cushion cover -3799 so that I could cherish such arts and crafts gifted to us being blesses to born in India.

This painted peacock watch as you see is made up of wooden handicraft elegant to suit any wall color, moreover it's stylish looking rooted to our tradition. The peacock which is our national bird and also the auspicious one would make it look divine on the wall of my house.

This lantern is sure to add brilliance to home decor owing to its gold embossed design with Meenakshi and Kundan work. Many of us are unaware of these traditional style which adds curiosity to inquire about these things making me the center of attraction along with this beautiful lantern. 

This satin foil printed cushion cover are suitable for every sofa type and would highlight the traditional and ethnic style I am working on with artistic designs reminding designs in palaces and forts of medieval era further attaching more to our roots.

These things would definitely add traditional flavor to otherwise un-themed house. Since houses are mirrors of personalities of people living in it, my connection to roots in spite of being a modern thinker would be visible with such a theme. I would also want my nephews and nieces to understand and appreciate these art of our India. Make my home website is filled with other such products to enhance this look or to opt for any other items suitable to any other style.

Wherever in the world you visit and roam,
Heart gets comfort in your style of sweet home.
