It takes a loud voice to make the deaf hear

THE HINDUSTAN SOCIALIST REPUBLICAN ARMY (NOTICE)

It takes a loud voice to make the deaf hear, with these immortal words uttered on a similar occasion by Valiant, a French anarchist martyr, do we strongly justify this action of ours.

This is how the above notice was put all over the nation in those days of the british RAJ.. signed by

Balraj  Commander-in-Chief  (Balraj was the pseudonym of Chandra Shekhar Azaad , The commander-in-chief of the Hindustan Socialist Republican Association (army))

A few days back a young man from india did just that , when he slapped the tainted,corrupt congressman the so-called person who follows the Gandhian principal, Sharad Pawar.. The one time team member of Anna Ji.

I felt happy when I saw that happen reminded me of the saying above.

YES it is needed , the need of the hour is that such leaders and by that I MEAN each one of them, over the time we have seen whats going on with all the leaders. they have all had some skeletons in their cupboards. YET we the nation are still sitting quiet.

उजजले खददर का कफ़न पहने मेरे बगुला भगत
बदन चीथड़ों में लिपटा तेरी बेटी का नंगा क्यूँ है ?
एय गुलशने हिंद के गदार निगेबान
मुझे यह तो बता तेरे बाग़ में लूट कतल अगवा और दंगा क्यूँ है ?
कुछ खिले कुछ बिन खिले मुरझा गए
कुछ को मिली मंजिलें कुछ राह में जान गवां गए
तभी तो जलती हैं रोज़ बसें गाड़ियां ट्रक ट्रामें
तुम कहते हो ठीक नहीं गलत काम है यह
में कहता हूँ ज़ुल्म के मारों का इंतकाम है यह
यह इंतकाम इन्कलाब भी बन सकता है
यह नई पीढ़ी है यह कुछ करके दिखा सकती है
यूँ तो गुलशन की हर शाख पे तुम बैठे हो
यह वोह चिंगारी है जो हर शाख जला सकती है

I was reading a few blogs, where people have been trying to find faults with the action of the youth and bringing the AGE OLD GANDHI into it how ahimsa and nonviolence helped .. DID IT REALLY.

We as a nation have to wake up to all this and know the history the proper history and stop idiolising a human being to be god.

It made my smile when ANNA Ji said “only one”.. YES that’s the correct reply .. but obviously the politician quickly took over him and he changed his answer, and now every other politcial party is trying to take some mileage out of it, NO one is bothering to see whats happening to the young man. Should you leaders not try to get in touch with this man and ask WHY he slapped ?

Some have written how non-violent act can be more effective  and that at the end of the day, a minister is a minister whose post and designation demands certain regard.  But the same minister was put there to work for the NATION for the PEOPLE not for himself , All he has done is the opposite,  thats the OATH he takes when he takes on the chair.. he has not given a damn about it .. so WHY should a common man think about him being a minister ?

Why don’t we leave the criminals and rapists who will take an oath to not do anything like that , Why do we put them behind bars, We follow non-violence then should we not treat these as human and pardon them, is that not what Gandhi said. So Why are we punishing them ?

It’s this ideology which will never let India be the nation it should be, If one does good a hundred are there to pull them down.  the problem is we want a change, but we will not do anything to help this change, sit in our houses and make such decisions , when the time comes to do something or just support someone doing something we bring the age-old funda about Gandhi-ism.

Same old sayings We want a Gandhi to be born in our house and a Bhagat singh in neighbours, so in case things change because of all the hard work done ALSO by the bhagat singhs , OUR Gandhi gets all the benefit and we can reap in the glory ..

No matter what the guy did, Look at the feeling how much hatred he has , I am sure millions have the same. It was like when they showed in the end of the film Rang De Basanti the youth saying they will do this and that But has anyone done anything , it’s still the same.

This THAPAD was a necessity need of the hour, to wake the people , as they say NOISE does wake up especially the one that comes from the impact right under the EARDRUM.

I hope Sharad pawar gets the message and starts to work NOW for what he was elected.. others take notice too. Nothing is lost still we can still resurrect the nation , the ministers leaders they have earned enough DO SOMETHING FOR THE NATION at least NOW.   Otherwise the day is not far when youth like Bhagat singh – Rajguru- sukhdev – Chandra shekhar DO take birth .. and then there will not be anywhere for you to run or hide.  What will you do then..

Suddenly all over the politicians are condemning the young man, I dont see all these politicians come together when a bill has to passed for the good of the nation, they dont come together to do ANYTHING good, I guess the cat is among the pigeons and all these leaders can suddenly see themselves getting slapped.  What happens to them when a good has to be done, dont they remember the OATH they have taken.  What have they ever done ..

Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party leaders also criticized the assailant and nearly all speakers noted that Pawar was a warm and helpful leader who did not deserve to be treated with such violence. REALLY so i guess they are saying he is not CORRUPT and is INNOCENT and obviously a firm follower of Gandhi.

The best was the comment I read CHOR CHOR – BHAI BHAI .. so very TRUE .. its only the corrupt trying to speak in favour of the corrupt …

The news of BANDHS and all over the cities .. Really .. shows how our nation works , no wonder these traitors will never go EVER .. and no matter what Anna ji does things will never change otherwise all those who are protesting are they saying Sharad Pawar is Innocent and is PURE WHITE.. a question that needs to be asked by all who took to roads and brought the cities to stand-still WHY.. and we say we indians are awakening up ARE WE ?

LOT of questions come up .. I hope some sense prevails on us indians and we can see through and do something for the nation , Look at everyone supporting each other. People talking of Gandhism and what they themselves do or have done, in spite of everyone knowing how corrupt each is Still supporting.

No one does a BANDH when innocent are beaten, the farmers look at their state.. Funny makes me laugh where our loyalties are , end of the day WE are just as bad as these politicians in spite of knowing what the truth is we are still supporting.. What will happen to our nation when WE are so corrupt ourself.

WAKE UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1. Your last two lines really sums up the reason behind all the corruption going on in India.

    The same people who would not think twice to pay a ‘donation’ to join their kids in so called ‘good’ schools, the same people who would vote for freebies during election, the same people who would demand ‘dowry’ during marriages, the same people who would pay a considerable amount to get a Govt job – Do these people deserve a clean and uncorrupted nation?

    Never.

    Why is Anna ji trying to give people something that they DON’T DESERVE?

    An Apt post Bikram. It echoes my feelings too. Funny how non- violent people too agree that the slap was deserving, just for their convenience and then later deny it.

    Forgiving every criminal is not right, neither is slapping anyone you hate. But the question is, is there a middle path here? Not really sure.

    • Bikram says:

      You see middle path was there, when people were asking these politcians that enough you haveearned a lot now stop it , or tell us how much you want.. TAKE THAT and then do something .. but its not owrking .. these people will never fill up there coffers. and when you cant get things done you have to do something TO wake up.. This was that moment.. hope people take notice ..

      I hope we get up.. moreover we shud take example from when british were here , mere ahimsa and Gandhi-ISM will not work , it did not then why will it work now .. NOISE is needed the fear of people … Look what is happening everywhere in the WORLD .. people have taken up guns to take back what is their.

      I hope something like that never happens in india but people hve had enough now so high time these leaders and politcicians understand.. Our indian Mythology tells us, our history tells us that whenever things have gone toooo FAR.. this sort of violence has taken place …

      Oh hooo this is one of my most favourite poems, Bikram.. glad you republished this as it is fit for this post too. 🙂 And hey.. yeh HO kya raha hai bahar duniya mein.. Yes, at the cost of sounding stupid, I had no idea that this incident had happened.
      See, what I believe is that koi bhi ho, jo koi bhi, chahe politician, chahe koi elderly person, chahe koi big shot, but one can not demand respect – one can only command respect by the way he conducts himself. So, free mein koi kisi kjo repsect nahin deta.
      Yeh incident.. is proof of the fact that the youth is at the end of their tethers and one day, this was to come.
      I think the nation’s reigns should be given to young blood who has been at the receiving end of all the problems and who understand what exactly needs to be done at the higher level so that it results in the betterment of the aam aadmi.
      Jo log bade bade bungalows mein rehte hain aur sirf apni keemti kursi sambhalte hain, unko toh pata hi nahin hoga ki zameen pe sona ya bhookhe pet kaam karna kya hota hai.

    Or slaps an honest journalist? Or someone who is fighting against corruption, after creating stories and rumours about the person, so that atleast some people support the slap – do you think something like this might happen?
