The Thirty First of February: A Short Story by Nitish Gulfam

Published

on

Nitish GulfamWith the continuous flashing of Breaking News, I realized a change in Undramatic Hindi News Channels. An accused in a rape case was sentenced to death by hanging by Majesty John Singh Khan in Raipur High Court. The country had never thought of such decision.

Last day only, a police officer had slapped an MLA for beating up a common man on the road. The Officer arrested the minister and lodged a case against him for misuse of the power. Number of Mahabali’s and Goons in our legislative system is way too less than that are behind the bars. Streets are now safe 24×7.

While catching up with the latest of the world, I heard a knock on my door. To my no surprise, it was Shaurya, my friend. He had a book, titled Quran.

“Ahh, so you finally got it.” I exclaimed.

“Yeah, and I hope you are ready to hop in.” he asked.

“Let’s go.” I replied, picking up my bag.

Shaurya and I are college friends. Since the very first day of the college, we both have a great bond. We had never thought of getting employed by the same company after the college as well. Now, we both work at Kingfisher Sports Management as Marketing Officer and Sales Manager. Well, Kingfisher is world’s second largest sports company next to Sahara Group only, another Indian company. Indian Origin brands are making their mark in every field throughout the world. The Micromax and Karbonn are competing for the top position in the market of Mobiles and Tablets almost on par with the American brands. Chinese companies on the other hand are trying to copy every bit of Indian Ideas. Besides, Indian Democracy being largest, it has also developed good influence over major portion of the world.

Car pooling was nothing new. Shaurya got his car to pick me and Shaun to our office. Other than girls, we had politics and corporate to chat about. But that day Shaun had something else to talk about. He told us about the dowry system Indians had 300 or more years ago. I did not have any idea about it other than the bookish knowledge. He also added that women were sold like any other commodity in the market. I was surprised to hear such sorry state of women back in the time. Someone surely had worked hard to abolish that state of women. Now, they are free to do anything at anytime.

“You know what I recently read a new word ‘Religion’.” Shaurya said while keeping car on right track.

“How is it spelled?” I asked him. “What does it mean?” I added in the same breath.

“R-E-L-I-G-I-O-N. The word means ‘an institution intended to influence people in the Name of GOD. It’s like a terrorist group which intended to create havoc in the mindset of people.’” Shaurya explained.

“They must be a fool to believe in such an institute.” Shaun replied.

“Guys, I am planning to try for a Government Job. What do you think?” Shaun asked changing the topic abruptly.

“Aahaann, and that’s the reason you are working on history and other influential topics. Well, if you work hard surely you’ll clear it.” I replied.

“Here we are.” Shaurya said, while parking the car. That’s how my day starts. That’s my Thirty First of February, a daily routine. A state where politicians mean leaders and administration means public employees. A state where women are actually be respected. A state where we don’t know meaning of Religion, but God through Hearts. An India which is actually is called as Super Power State.

Note: It’s a Routine of India which has never happened, and possibly won’t happen in near future, unless we all do something revolutionary.

Characters (Shaurya, Shaun and Gulfam), their work life and this story are work of Fiction and An Idea.

Nitish Garg, Marketing and Finance Professional, gets time to express his views through Poems and Short Stories. He has composed songs for three Bands: Brahma Satya, Ethnic Ragas and Atmatattva. Because of his fragrance of Poems, his college friends gave him his Pen Name “Gulfam”. You may visit his blog pen and paper or you might like his work below.

The Cheapest Places to Upsize Your Home Revealed

Published

on

Does it feel like you’re seriously lacking in space in your current home? Do you find the clutter has taken over your life simply because you don’t have enough storage space? Do you and your family members feel as though you’re living on top of each other with little to no privacy? If you’ve answered yes to these questions, then there’s a good chance you’re already convinced it’s time to upsize your home. But what if you can’t or don’t want to upsize the budget? Can you upsize your home in an affordable way?

With that in mind, here’s a look at some of the cheapest places in the UK where you can upsize your home.

Orkney

Top spot goes to Orkney, which is not only a great location for upsizing but offers all kinds of other benefits to residents. It’s here that you’ll be able to take advantage of a bigger living space without having to inflate the budget exponentially.

As an in-depth article by deacon.co.uk – a specialist buildings insurance provider – points out, it is often called the happiest place to live. Residents consistently point out their high quality of living, low crime rates, school class sizes in the primary years are low. It’s rare you’ll find anything that would be classified as a traffic jam, there is plenty of open land and wide-open spaces, and you’ll be treated to some of the most exceptional natural scenery in the world.

Richmond in North Yorkshire

Another great location to research is Richmond in North Yorkshire. It features many of the same draws as Orkney does, but this time you will be located in England. The cost of living is more reasonable than many other areas of the UK, house prices are still affordable, the crime rates are low, and you’ve got a robust nightlife and entertainment scene that you can explore.

Rutland in the East Midlands

If you like that quiet kind of setting that is filled with history and fabulous architecture, then you may want to consider Rutland, which is the smallest county in Britain. There are plenty of rolling hills, the River Welland, a lot of agricultural lands, and is a drivable 164 km from London (ideal for a weekend getaway).

Hambleton in North Yorkshire

Hambleton is located in England’s northern regions with Northallerton being the largest town in the district. The district is dotted with small towns and villages, is known for its agricultural lands, and even got the title as the “best place to live in Yorkshire” a few years back. This title was based on life expectancy, overall health and wellness of residents, personal well-being, weather, crime rates, and employment.

Other Notable Places to Consider

And if you’re still not sold on the places listed, other affordable areas that you can potentially upsize your home include Eden in Cumbria, Westminster, and Richmond-upon-Thames. Each has its own unique personality and list of benefits. No matter which of these locations you pick, there’s a good chance you’ll be able to fulfill your goal of branching out and upsizing your home to something that is more functional and liveable.

Make Their Life A Little Easier 

One of the best things that you can do for a healthcare specialist that you know and love during this tough period is to attempt to make their life a little easier. Extra long shifts battling against this new virus can have a terrible effect on a person’s mental health, as well as sapping away all of their energy at the same time. This can mean that things like doing their grocery shopping and making meals are often the very last thing on their mind, opening up the perfect opportunity for you to get involved and lend a helping hand. Doing a big food shop that you can take to their home after work will be such an amazing gesture they will no doubt appreciate, whilst going an extra step further to actually cook up a delicious meal that they can enjoy after a long day can put such a huge smile on their face. Be sure to make the most of healthy ingredients including lots of fresh fruit and veg, as they must look after their immune system to stay strong throughout. 

Little Extras 

There are several different little extras that you may want to invest in to show your health care loved ones a bit of appreciation, and you can get these items delivered straight to their home so that you needn’t bother trying to work around social distancing measures to drop off their present yourself. For example, something like a heart badge reel that they can add to their uniform can be a great pick-me-up that they can look down at for a little motivation during their long shifts at work! It’s also a great idea to find some self care activities that they can indulge in, such as a luxurious face mask or bubble bath that they can utilise to get some down time at the end of the day.

Showing your love for the healthcare workers in your life needn’t be as difficult as you might think when you can make the most of the top tips and tricks detailed above! Whether you decide to help them get their grocery shopping, cook a nutritious meal or simple invest in a few little gifts to put a smile on their face – every little helps!
