Jallianwala Baug - Accidental Pic






This Picture is taken at Jallianwala Baug, Amritsar. This is the well in which the people trapped in the baug when general dyer open fired at the people who had gathered there for the meeting On Sunday 13 April 1919.

The feeling of standing there was thrilling and even a fresh reminder of the horrors which this place had seen. The well is secured with grills around it so that people don’t accidently fall in the well. And as the grills were very small I was not able to take a very good picture of the well but this pic was accidently taken.

Just Can't Read a Newspaper !!!



            Does any of you feel the same about Newspaper? I mean I have tried like million times over to start reading a newspaper on a regular basis, like the people say, “ It becomes a habit and then you just can’t go one day without your morning paper”, I have been longing for this particular habit to come to me but it never has. Even now I have Time of India kept next to me and I doing all other non-productive things to just create more distance between me and that paper and then again at some point I feel like I should start reading it, now being all this said I think I should tell you that I aspire to become a journalist and I am sure you all just stifled a laugh there, I mean a journalist who cant get herself to read a Newspaper? You must be kidding me… but well… that just me and honestly I am not proud of this thing.
            So how many of you feel the same about newspapers?? And now I think I better get myself atleast started with the first page.. but again the first page says that the PM hints at a fuel price rise.. now do you really need such depressing and tension giving news in the morning? But again I cant blame the newspaper it’s the over all country which is surrounded with depressing news and if there isn’t any then our dear government just comes up with something so add upon the miseries of the common man. There is a hike in the bus and train fares since yesterday now the poor will just start walking to their destination and give it a year or two more everyone will be on road walking to their destination because petrol then would be just a luxury item for the rich.  Other news on the first page says that gold pushed `30,000 mark as the economy staggers, Just wow!!!
