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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Harjiwanpal S Gill Bikram warm wishes after ages.Hope you & your family are good.Highly commendable to read about Shaheed-E-Azam.I am emotionally attached to him , my mother being his neice.BEST tribute to him is your write-up about him.Keep it up & do get in touch

Today 27th September is the Birth anniversary of Sardar Bhagat singh, One of the most known person in Indian history, Who was more influential then Mahatama Gandhi, inspite of being so young.

The congress may not agree to it , But it was Gandhi’s Politics that made us loose a firebrand leader, I wonder sometimes how it would have been if Sardar Bhagat singh and his friends had survived, for as long as Gandhi did, makes you wonder what would have been the outcome if history had been otherwise..

Anyway Today is Sardar Bhagat singh’s birthday and I dont want to discuss the dirty politics of the congress then.Sardar Bhagat singh gave a new direction to revolutionary movement in India, formed ‘Naujavan Bharat Sabha’ to spread the message of revolution in Punjab, formed ‘Hindustan Samajvadi Prajatantra Sangha’ along with Shaheed Chandrasekhar Azad to establish a republic in India,

(the following had been published by me earlier too.. My thoughts) Been wondering sometimes, what it would be, to actually be alive during the times of Sardar Bhagat Singh. It’s one thing to watch the movies describing him, his ideas what he did, how it all happened, but to be actually there is different

I sometimes think if I was at that age, am I cut up for such sacrifices, would I be able to do what the heroes at that time did. Would I have had the courage to defy the Government at that time? Or would I be a coward running scared? or worst be an obedient citizen going about my daily chores of life without batting a eyelid, cause that’s what most were doing otherwise how could a handful of british rule so many.

The last few words spoken by him “Dil se niklegi, na mar kar bhi, watan ki ulfat, meri mitti se bhi khushboo-e-watan aayegi” (Even after my death my love for my motherland will not diminish from my heart. Even my ashes will smell of your (motherland’s) greatness and love). AM I LIKE THAT Are YOU  LIKE THAT ?

Can I or Would I be able to give up my life smiling. Does it not make you think sometime COULD YOU DO what they did.  OR Would I be one of those traitors who got greats like Shaheed Chandrashekhar Azad killed, Shaheed Bhagat Singh hanged… Would I be that SLY bastard who would betray my friends at the first hurdle of trouble, would I spill the beans at the mere thought of pain?

Would I or Could I have been as brave as the martyrs, Could I have taken all that beating, torture they went through in there tender age, When I was 24 I was busy trying to make a career.

It is one thing saying it, Oh yes I could have or I would have… But think deep inside, be truthful to yourself COULD YOU, COULD I… just a thought. Not many these days think the way a 24 year old thought at that time, I know situations were different but there is one thing common, INDIA… our country it is still under oppression, still under rule the only difference is colour of skin, it was WHITE then now its BROWN. Mentality is still same LOOT The country, fill in own coffers…

But do we see Bhagat Singh NOW? NO. All the martyrs gave their life for us but we have betrayed them, we have betrayed our own brothers and sisters.

Hence the wondering that could I do what they did, because if the answer is YES and hundreds, thousands said it was YES, then we should not be where we are in the current ERA. I just wish to god and prey that when I die, I die a good death a bit worthwhile, or give me strength that I am able to do something, anything worthwhile for the country where I was born where my forefathers lived.

I am not sure if I could say what Bhagat Singh wrote “I have been arrested while waging a war. For me there can be no gallows. Put me into the mouth of a cannon and blow me off.” These heroes had conquered the fear of death.

CAN I ?
COULD I ?
WOULD I ?
Remains a QUESTION…

“Shaheedo ki cheetaon par har baras lagen ge mele, watan par marne walon ka bus yahi nishan hoga’’.

Sardar Bhagat Singh was one of the most prominent faces of Indian freedom struggle. He was a revolutionary ahead of his times. By Revolution he meant that present order of things, which was based on manifest injustice must change (its stil lthe same now tooo),   He realised that the overthrow of British rule should be accompanied by the socialist reconstruction of Indian society and for this political power must be seized by the workers. And he was so right, Look at what stage we are in Under the so called rulers, Today We need Bhagat singh to be born again.

We indians have a tendency- we want nehru paida ho apne ghar aur Bhagat singh paida ho padosi de ghar. Effort woh karen aur maje len hum.. 

Bhagat Singh gave a new direction to the revolutionary movement in India. He differed from his predecessors ,He was the one who had a concept of post-independence society. The immediate goal of all other parties , leaders was  destruction of the British Empire but they had no inclination to work out a political alternative. Bhagat Singh, because of his thoughts, knowledge, interest in studying gave the revolutionary movement a goal beyond the elimination of the British.

This Vision and determination of purpose distinguished Sardar Bhagat Singh from other leaders of the National Movement. He emerged as the only alternative to Gandhi and the Indian National Congress, especially for the youth, when the rest of the parties were busy squabbling over power, who would have power, who would rule, The Young Firebrand Gave His life for the country, slapping at the faces of the leaders Then.. Who are still SQUABBLING NOW.

As we have seen throughout our history then and NOW our leaders have never been loyal to there party let alone the Country, The so called leaders then let there own selfish aims come in way of helping a Revolutionary who WOULD  yes WOULD have I am not saying could .. WHO WOULD have changed the whole scenario had he lived.. He told us how we will be under the rule of our own when the british left, thats what has happened precisely..

We have to change this Attitude, We need bhagat singh born in each house, So we can get rid of our country from the leeches the so called leaders, Need I say more …

Today On his birthday please all those reading this article take a moment and THINK…

Soora so pahchaniye, je lade deen ke het,
Purja-purja kat mare, kabhu na chhade khet.

(Only he is brave who fights for the cause of the poor. He may be cut into pieces and may be killed, but he should not leave the field.)

Inquilab Zindabad…

Look at the above pic.. He was right Money is the HONEY of mankind especially We indians…
“Lover , lunatic and poets are made of the same stuff ”

“My strength is the strength of oppressed , my courage is the courage of desperation” Indeed when will we get so desperate and have the courage to throw the rulers Out WHEN….

Martyrdom of Sardar Bhagat Singh

I will be posting a few more articles after this as my little tribute to the Martyr who gave what not many can do for the country without any award, only wanting his fellow citizens to live in peace.. BUT shame on us all, we dont deserve to be called Indians and Shame on us to say we are patriotics and love our country.. We should all Lower our heads in SHAME….

I was reading an article on the above and I was really amused at the comments etc. put up by people on the above issue, That if sportsmen are included then who should the First Bharat ratna go , I was amazed and ASTONISHED and SURPRISED too that the name of Sachin Tendulkar was making the rounds .. Please tell me what’s wrong with the people who think he should be the first one, No doubt that he is a great sportsman… But my question is why he deserves to be the first one when there are other sportsmen who deserve more and have done more for the sports of the nation.  We as a nation love to run after media and the limelight, I would like to ask one question what is it that Sachin has supposedly done for the nation. Yes he is ONE of the greatest players of cricket, He is the One who has all the records, No doubts about it… 

The books, scores, points speak for him, so very true… If we do look logically all those milestones have come at a higher number of matches that he has played…, I am a great fan of Sachin, I have missed classes-work to see him bat and play, and will continue to do so. I dont have an ounce of question mark on his personal and professional behaviour. He has been at top of his game for so many years , whereas a lot came and went during the time… HE IS DESERVING OF THE BHARAT RATNA .. No doubts about it but I also think he is not deserving of being the First one to get the biggest award that india has to offer when there are Players and other sportsmen who have done much more for the NATION and not just for their own pocket. Sachin has made a name yes, but he has been equally rewarded by the amount of money he has been given and Not asked the question when he did not perform. 

A Name that comes to mind is that of Major Dhyan Chand the GOD of hockey, which my dear readers is supposedly the NATIONAL GAME of our nation, we keep running about how this is wrong in our nation that is wrong in our nation, We as citizens have not been able to follow our own national game and we have the time to talk such silly talks. 

 Whether you are a hockey lover or not, anyone who claims to be a sports lover would, or should, know about Dhyan Chand. He was instrumental in the country winning three successive Olympic Gold medals in hockey – 1928 Amsterdam, 1932 Los Angeles and 1936 Berlin… This man is a Myth – a Legend and has folk stories following his exploits…  It is said that 

  •  After India played its first match in the 1936 Olympics, Dhyan Chand’s magical stick work drew crowds from other venues to the hockey field. A German newspaper carried a banner headline: ‘The Olympic complex now has a magic show too.’  The next day, there were posters all over Berlin: Visit the hockey stadium to watch the Indian magician Dhyan Chand in action.
  • Example of the level of patriotism: In 1936 Dhyan Chand won his third consecutive Olympic gold medal in hockey.  Hitler walked off the field in a huff – the Indian team had beaten Germany 8-1 and Chand had scored six of the goals. Next day, Hitler offered Chand a position in the German army that was considerably higher than that which he held in India.  Chand politely declined.
  • In Holland, the authorities broke his hockey stick to check if there was a magnet inside
  • On one occasion, a lady from the audience asked Dhyan Chand to play with her walking stick instead. He scored goals even with them!
  • Cricket world’s legend Don Bradman and Hockey’s greatest player Dhyan Chand once came face to face at Adelaide in 1935, when the Indian hockey team was in Australia. After watching Dhyan Chand in action, Don Bradman remarked “He scores goals like runs in cricket”
  • Residents of Vienna, Austria, honoured him by setting up a statue of him with four hands and four sticks, depicting his control and mastery over the ball.
  • In 1936 itself the Indian contingent which was the hockey team Refused to salute Hitler… the only other team to do that was the Americans. The crowd watched in dismay as the Indians did not offer the Nazi salute and while their gesture went largely unnoticed back home, it created quite a stir in Germany.

He was, simply, ‘The Hockey Wizard’, scoring over 400 goals in his international career.  He was just that good.  The recent giving out of the Padam shri awards to all sorts of people with doubtful integrity has devalued this award.

Another point that I want to make is that all other sportsmen have some sort of equivalent in there field , Sachin has fellow cricketers who are almost as good the likes of the Rahul dravid, Sunil Gavaskar, Kapil Dev …  But Dhyan Chand when he played, He was unparalleled, no one came close not just from Indian players but worldwide. Such was his mastery over the Stick. There are so many stories about his exploits on the field all over the world do we think that Sachin’s Exploits are that amazing ?

Sachin has just won ONE world cup in his entire career, whereas Dhyan Chand won Three and he was Instrumental in all the wins, Sachin as we know has not been always that instrumental. 

Some of the facts that I have found out in my searches…

In the year 1926 Dhyan Chand was selected for the Indian Hockey team going to visit New Zealand at a tour. During the tour, the Indian team scored 20 goals in a match played at Dannkerke, and Dhyan Chand alone had scored 10 of them. India played 21 matches on the tour, out of which it won 18, lost 1 and drew 2 matches. The team scored a total number of 192 goals and Dhyan Chand alone had scored over 100 of them… At the London Folkestone Festival in 1927, he scored 36 goals out of India’s total 72 goals, in 10 matches played at the event. 

In the Los Angeles Olympics 1932, the Indian team led by Lal Shah Bukhari again won the Gold medal. In the tournament, the Indian Hockey team defeated the USA Hockey team by 23-1, which remained a world record until it was broken in the year 2003. Out of these 23 goals, 8 were scored alone by Dhyan Chand. In the event, Dhyan Chand scored 12 goals for India in 2 matches.

In the Berlin Olympics 1936, Indian had successfully treaded their path to the finals crushing Hungary by 4-0, USA by 7-0,  Japan  9-0 , France 10 -0 without conceding a single goal in the tournament. and was going to combat Germany in the Finals. In the Final match, the Indian squad could score only 1 goal till the interval. Dhyan Chand removed his shoes in the interval and played the match barefooted onwards. The Indian team won the match and the Gold medal by 8-1.

In 1932, India scored 338 goals in 37 matches, of which 133 were from the Dhyan Chand’s magic wand.

 A famous story goes thus:

  • He put through a ball to K D Singh Babu, then turned his back and walked away. When Babu asked for an explanation, he was told, “If you could not get a goal from that you did not deserve to be on my team.”
  • Once, In a game many of the shots hits by him were missing the goal post, Dhyan Chand argued with the match referee regarding the measurement of the goal post, and amazingly, it was found to not be in conformation with the official width of a goal post.

Dhyan Chand had complete mastery over the game, His placements were perfect, and many a times he did not even have to look where the player was the Ball reached the player, when he was expected to shoot, he would pass and when he passed, he expected the player not to miss.

After his retirment he would still embarrass goalkeepers during practise games by dropping the ball and driving it into the corner of the net on the half volley ten times in a row.

Two things that will encapsulate his greatness.

Once an invitation to play in East Africa stipulated a condition: No Dhyan Chand, no invitation

A statue of the whiz in a Vienna sports club, it is said, shows a man with four arms and four sticks.

It is a pity that we as a nation never give due recognition to anyone who deserves Especially when they are alive, The same happened with this great man too. India’s highest award for lifetime achievement in sports is the Dhyan Chand Award which has been awarded annually from 2002 to sporting figures who not only contribute through their performance but also contribute to the sport after their retirement. Yet we are debating over the fact that who should be the first sportsman to get the most prestigious award.. WELL WHO ELSE ?

Hello there Humans well I am supposing you are humans as in belonging to the same set of Being on this earth .. don’t worry this is nothing to tell you off or anything about what you are doing, I have a few requests that i want to make and ask  first is kindly do let me know why are you people hell-bent on killing innocent humans, people whom you don’t know, people who you have never seen in your life , what in the world have they done to be treated by you like that, that you don’t give two hoots about them ..

I am sure you have your own reasons or whatever Evil thrill you guys get in killing an innocent human..  I can give you a list of hundred nay thousands of indian people who are worst of a kind, who you can target and believe me it will be a bigger impact than killing innocent civilians who are going about their day to-day work. How about planting those bombs aimed at our national leaders .. That will get you media attention if any one of them is killed in a blast..

It will definitely help your cause , though in my little mind I can’t understand what CAUSE  it is?  that says to attain it you have to kill innocent people …

Look if you can leave the countrymen the innocent civilians and go for the Idiot corrupt – useless leaders that my country has it will work in both our favour you will get your evil pleasure in blowing up some human , or maybe you have this fetish for blasts and enjoy the sound of loud bangs…  secondly  we will be happy to get rid of these corrupt leaders.

If you guys are after money then again these leaders have enough money hidden in their vaults that  you guys can live a lavish life .. More over God might just smile if you kill the bad people , as such since negative negative makes a positive I am guessing bad VS bad might just become good .. who knows ..

This is a humble request to you all planning designing the atrocities on fellow human beings please go for the big fish.  I am sure some of the innocent civilians may actually support you in this act of yours, the media has been going on and on about how we need to move on and how normalcy is returning back to Mumbai , how the people are so resilient .. Well I am 100% sure that the same civilians will Move on much quicker knowing that a Kalmadi or a Raja or some other corrupt has been blown to bits…

PS:-  I was informed me asking the terrorist to kill leaders rather then innocent people maybe taken in wrong way , so to clarify ..  thats exactly what i want .. As our leaders are not innocent and deserve to be Shot and killed ..  It is a genuine request to the Killers if they have to kill then kill the politicians rather then innocent people .. Maybe then our leaders will do something about this and safeguard the citizens who deserve better security then the leaders. The Deaths of innocent people has not shocked any of our leaders all those promised made last time when our country was attacked, Nothing has been done , maybe on paper but not in the Real sense, If one big leader is killed then things will move.. maybe then instead of a Z security for the politcians or any officer there will be MAYBE a “A” security for a the whole  COUNTRY.. I dare not say for a common man..

**********************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************

I have read a lot of posts on the mumbai blasts, a lot of people like me have a lot to say and lot of blame game going on , But What makes me angry is why are we blaming others , It is US the indian people , who are to be blamed , we have brought all this upon ourself.  We are the ones who chose the leaders to lead us , We see them every 5 years or sometimes less, we moan about how they are corrupt and bad leaders , Yet come the election day we go and VOTE for them .. its none of their fault …

If I am a leader and I am getting a chance to rob anyone without being questioned , sorry to say I will probably do what they are doing, anyone and everyone will do the same … This is not a SATYUG or the era of HarishChander.. it is a time where everyone is for its own self.. I have seen people who vouch for how good they are , seen them say a lot about corrupt people but once they get the same seat they are doing the same … I am sure all of us will do .. Look at the latest political Dramas being played by a few all in the name of doing good for the country… How millions went ga ga over leaders who did good one day .. the very next day they were doing the same what they stood up against…

It is sad what happened Very sad , But what have we as individuals done about it , not many have done anything, it has become norm.. Things will only change once WE STAND UP, clean the dirt in our own house, then our street , then the road , Mohalla , city , State and so on Then we MAY see some change..

We are doing great , we are evolving , We have gone leaps ahead in this or that .. YES we have but all this has it in any way changed the ways of life for a common man, I doubt it .. And common man is the one who if changed will change the ways of a country , the rich getting richer , the corrupt getting corrupter  is not going to change anything …

I hope our leaders don’t put another of those committee’s to look into the security , to find reasons , to find the culprits .. That does not work. It’s just a farce what has any of these committee’s ever done for the nation.. other than use up the TAX money and waste them too. Time for action What action is taken depends upon how the people of our country feel ..

My heart-felt condolences to the people who were affected by this , and also I would like to say SORRY TO ALL THAT WERE AFFECTED BY THIS , SINCE AS A INDIAN I ALONG WITH BILLION STRONG DID NOTHING .. 

No wonder these people who bring about so much damage get away with what they want to do , when they want to , How they want to do .. This will always continue till we wake up .. I don’t know what will it take to wake us all, or when that will happen but I know one thing that when we ALL GET UP , STAND TOGETHER , All these terrorists will disappear .. because after all they are amongst us , the enemy is within us all.. we just need to open our eyes and find out who they are ..

October 1984 was the day when humanity , brotherhood went for a six in a country which boasted of being the biggest democracy and even bigger in diversity.  Its been 27 years now to the day when the mobs were given free hand to do as they please in the wake of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi’s assassination, the mob whose one target was to find a Sikh and kill.. neighbours became foes. People who were there with you, for you in thick and thin before that day, The ones who boasted of friendship.

That massacre raises a lot of SERIOUS questions about the autonomy of  law and order machinery,  It all went for a six in those three days. Human rights had no meaning.  Then came another Blow , that too from a chosen leader who supposedly was educated and intelligent , Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, He had the audacity to say in his first public meeting that such things happen or are caused  by the fall of a mighty tree ,  Instead of  condemning it all it seemed he likened the carnage.

In the Drama that has unfolded over the years, lots of govts. came and went , each promising justice but that has never come I mean barely 10-15 people have been convicted for murders committed , the official death toll was 2,733 .. Where is the logic behind all this. How can this be justified ? 

Does this not cast a poor reflection on the integrity of India’s criminal justice system ?

There has not even been a condolence motion to the victims of the 1984 carnage, the human rights in this country has suffered a terrible setback, Such is the disdain displayed by the highest institutions of India,  If such are the deals meted out to the people of this country what can we expect the country to do in case of foreign criminals doing the same to us in our own country.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh himself acknowledged in Parliament years ago that despite official inquiries into the 1984 carnage, “We all know that we still do not know the truth, and the search must go on.” 

How is it possible, No wonder the indian people are loosing faith in their own country .  When other countries commemorated the 25 years of the bloodshed, India was still quiet as they were too wary of the fact that if  any sort of Commemoration is done for the victims, it would be an insult to Indira Gandhi

Is her Murder bigger then the Murders of  (Official numbers) 2,733?

Even when we were under the RAJ, The british publicly condemned General Dyer for taking the action against the innocent in Jallianwala Bagh, , a Public committee called “HUNTER COMMITTEE” was created, it was endorsed by the house of commons in UK, and Dyer was removed from the army unceremoniously. But India as a country could not do so, HAS NOT DONE SO, in spite of 27 long years gone by. So much so that Independent India has FAILED To measure up to the benchmarks set even by the Raj.

All this has done is give the  communal parties a big thumbs up, well we all know that these are the parties that organised the killings of Muslims in Maharashtra in 1993 and Gujarat in 2002.

We talk of Equality but is there any equality, when there is so much Indifference towards the minorities, I mean if Sikhs can suffer this, imagine what would a Dalit in an obscure village feel.

What does that tell us about the mentality of  the citizens who are still voting for those tainted ministers , I remember the words used by our neighbour in Chandigarh, In those days when the elections took place, She came over to our house and categorically shouted “VOTE PAO HATH NU”.. as the hand was a symbol for congress then and this was the neighbours with whom we had lived since I was born. With whom we were closer than our relatives. Yet when it happened there was only one reality Hindu – Sikh .. all the Love was forgotten.

To this day there are places where more proof of genocide are being discovered, even in January 2011 a place Hondh-Chillar, where 32 Sikhs were killed on November 2, 1984, was discovered in northern Haryana, and in March 2011 another place near Pataudi, was discovered.  The official death toll is much higher than that. 

“The discovery of more Sikh massacre victims after nearly three decades shows the reluctance of successive Indian governments, despite numerous commissions of inquiry, to get to the truth and prosecute those responsible for the anti-Sikh violence,” said Meenakshi Ganguly, South Asia director at Human Rights Watch.

It is sad that there are cases being fought on foreign soil against the Congress Govt, Yet no one has batted an eyelid in the country itself.

The 2011 WikiLeaks cable leaks revealed that the United States was convinced about the complicity of Indian Government ruled by the Indian National Congress in the riots, and termed it as “opportunism” and “hatred” of the Congress government against Sikhs.

I wonder what is to become of this great nation, Will the culprits ever be charged for any crime or is it that only the common will have to suffer.

Incredible India

I found this interesting  tag thought of taking it up!

We all know, how vast, rich and incredible our country is!  There is a lot to do in this vast country, I have loved being to every place i have been , Have so many lovely memories of every place

The rules are:
1. The list contains all the states of India and their capitals are in brackets.
2. Make bold the states you have visited, and mention your favourite memories of that state.
3. Include only states that you have really experienced, and have felt the culture of the place. The touch-and-go while travelling in a train does not count, because that way I believe I’d have seen a little more, but it does not give me a feel of the place and so they need to be actually visited.


Note: The format is State (Capital). The ones I have visited are in bold.


1. Jammu & Kashmir (Srinagar): Well 1985.. jammu and kashmir tour with school.. the beautiful places on way .. Kokernag where Jhelum starts ..
