Posts Tagged ‘Martyrs’

As I woke up today I felt something different Not sure what but the day felt different, I sent a txt to a friend of mine here in uk to remind him about the 11am meet at the local club where a lot of fellow Indians who love their country were going to meet, as it is the Martyrdom day of three martyrs Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru, We have this get together once every month, usually it is on a weekend but today was a special day. After all the three great men had given the ultimate sacrifice without a second thought, just for the love of the nation. How many can we count who have done that or COULD do it.

It brought a thought that imagine if it was 1931 what atmosphere it would have been that day, the frenzy of the people when they got to know that the three hero’s had been hanged and that they took to the gallows smiling. 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.

Thousands of people who stood outside the jail, waiting to hear a word about their heroes, Imagine the FEAR the rulers had , How afraid they were of the Three young men, IMAGINE if it was 30 Young men or 300 Young men, If that can be made true today, imagine what 300 Young men can do for the love of their Country.

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 an eyelid, cause that’s what most were doing otherwise how could a handful of British rule so many.

It makes me angry when I see a tom dick and harry, a two-bit politician taking all the glory BUT my blood boils in anger when I think of the people in our nation , WE are a BILLION PLUS and yet we let the idiots rule us, brought a memory when BJP won the elections a few months back so much was being said about this will happen that will happen.. but WHAT HAS HAPPENED. We are still there , Look what happened a week back in Kolkata, to an OLD NUN 72 years old. That sums up everything on what we have become and WHAT great citizens we are of the great nation.

I am sure many of you will be saying OH this is isolated incident IS IT, every other week a gruesome atrocity is being done.. NOW just try to compare that with the days or the time in 1930-31, Imagine the JOSH, The vigour in the hearts of the YOUNG of that era, The love for the nation the love was so much they were ready to give their Life, Not RAPE the nation.

Yet people say we are advancing I am sorry it does not feel like that..

The youth of 1931 said Let us see how steadfast I am. One of my friends asked me to pray. When informed of my atheism, he said, “When your last days come, you will begin to believe.” I said, “No, dear sir, Never shall it happen. I consider it to be an act of degradation and demoralization. For such petty selfish motives, I shall never pray.” Reader and friends, is it vanity? If it is, I stand for it… (Bhagat Singh said that)

It was today so many years back that the youth of the nation showed the rulers that they were no longer afraid to walk the talk , to walk up to that platform where they would KISS death and smilingly happily die for the nation, Hoping to be reborn YET AGAIN so they could try once again to free our great nation from the chains it was bound by, yes THEY believed in that , pity today they will probably die of SHAME if re-born, to see the state of our nation. Where WE the people have brought it to.

Here we are in the year 2015 yet again on the same fateful day, how many of us remember the Brave three , who gave their life in a hope for a better future for us , the US who don’t deserve this freedom, the US who have never ever done anything for our nation and probably will never do, the US who are hand in glove with the corrupt , the bad the traitors .. YES i call myself and others a traitor for we are seeing all this happen in our nation yet we go about as if nothing has happened, we don’t bat an eyelid over what is going on …

Jo bhara nahin hai bhavon se 

behti jisme rasdhaar nahin

woh hridya nahin Pathar hai

jisme swadesh ka pyar nahin

(That heart that does not have emotions, that does not have BLOOD running, That is not a  heart  it is  Stone,  that does not have the love of Country in it)

 

jisme na nijh gaurav

na nijh desh ka abhiman hai

woh nar nahin hai

Passu hai nira Mritak ke samaan hai

(The one who has no self-respect, or is proud of his country, that is not a MAN but a Dead person an ANIMAL they are)

When will the time come when we will all stand up together and do something , or have we gotten so shameless that we are not dreading the day when we will also reach where these martyrs are now looking down upon us, what will we say to them when they ask us “IS this why they gave their lives”..  HOW – WHAT will we say to them ..

When will the time come when indians will start to think that Time has come to re-sow the guns in our fields.. as the little Bhagat singh did ..

The only thing that has changed since independence is the color of the skin of the looters , it was white then Now its brown.

Here is something that I would love everyone to hear ,  Put the volume at normal and close your eyes Just listen..   a little tribute to the martyrs .. Hope we do something for them for our country which will make them proud of their fellow citizens , I know you all are very busy, but do spend some time listening , maybe it will wake us all up to do something someday.. just maybe

If you are one of those people who will not listen to One wrong word against the country PLEASE STOP NOW, I am sorry.. This article is not for you, or for those who have one single track mind..  All those who think our country has nothing wrong ALSO STOP READING NOW.
All those who can only TALK and do nothing also STOP READING.  ALSO This is not INDIA bashing its towards the INDIAN PEOPLE .. bashing those who wud not do anything but will be the first ones to argue or fight or shout and put others down… Its to people to accept the fault and work to fix it not sit and bask that we are doing good Thanks

Yesterday it was the 26th january .. the day our nation became a Republic, I deliberately this year did not record any of the programs that I usually watch, Now for some reason watching all that makes me sad.

It reminds me of what it should be and what it is ..

I was watching the movie Rang de basanti and it starts with the lead lady who wants to make a documentary on the freedom fighters of  our nation, she goes into a meeting to get funds and the project cleared , Why i am typing this is because there was a GREAT dialogue which got my attention and which left me thinking the guy and the lady say that if she Should forget making the documentary on the revolutionaries but instead makes a documentary on GANDHI.. the exact words were “GANDHI SELLS“.. and so very true it is  that’s all that sells in our great nation ..  just GANDHI and that’s what has been selling since ages. We are so blind to even see it. I bet that was SOLD yesterday too in New Delhi.

Today was the first time in all my life for as far as I remember I did not watch any of those lies being told by our leaders all over the country, we sit and listen hoping that This time maybe JUST maybe the guy behind the microphone is probably telling the truth.  It is a shame that during all those lectures and promises none of the people are remembered, who made this dream come true , the dream of celebrating the republic day of a nation, the ones who are the GIVERS of this dream to us..  WHICH IS GOOD. I am happy they are not remembered. They don’t deserve the embarrassment of being talked about by the corrupt leaders.

The story of the revolutionaries is forgotten by us indians ,  those 23 years olds who gave their life for us ..  Who fought A EMPIRE on their own and in process gave their life happily, smiling.. Praying that they are reborn again in the same nation so they can fight again against the tyranny of the Raj. ALAS this day I again feel that the revolutionaries will be so ashamed of us all.. as they say in hindi “LANNAT HAI HAMARE PE “..  These people gave their life for us all , for us for our nation but I seriously think why did they give their life FOR WHAT …  I seriously think that if any of these guys were alive they would literally kill themselves in shame .. IS THIS WHAT THEY FOUGHT . Is this why they gave their life for US.. the UNFAITHFUL.. the USELESS US all me including

I read a lot of blogs and articles today where a few have written how people felt emotional listening to the patriotic songs  .. it is such a pity that all this JOSH and patriotism comes on the ONE day and /OR maybe on the 15th august too.. the rest of the days we don’t give a damn about anything going on.

As I am writing the scene comes where the guy comes in stopping the people jiving to the western song, having a drink dancing etc.  in the movie telling them how indian society is screwed up and has a go at one of the friends who is a muslim and the other two jump in to save their friend .. and then says JAI HIND when he leaves..  exactly JAI HIND and that is by shouting, is that all we can do say jai hind and is that all .. is our job done by just saying it.. .

As I wrote in the comments at a few blogs I seriously think we need the british to come back to rule us all yet again , We don’t deserve this freedom.  AT least when british ruled us we knew who the enemy was but this freedom this independence has brought a lot of enemies, our very own people are the enemies now.. they have raped us again and again .. every 5 years they come and we smilingly and happily stand there NAKED.. to be taken for a ride for another 5 years .. I don’t know how many years more will it need for us to wake up .. its been 65 years since the Independence.

A lot has been going on politically in our nation for the last few years now but as usual all those rays of hope have slowly gone, with everything coming up everyone is the same , each one of these Khadi wearing people (I hate to say leaders), they think wearing pure white clothes will make them pure , they forget that all that their WHITE is full of BLACKREDGREY.. all those Dark colours ..  There is not a single leader who is genuinely interested in the welfare of the nation, each one of them has a hidden agenda and the BEST thing .. the BESTEST part is that in spite of knowing it all we still worship them .. OH yes I forgot the GANDHI FACTOR.. true people .. SO true .. the dialogue that I mentioned in the start that GANDHI SELLS .. Well it does isn’t it .. the so-called Gandhian TOPI.. The Khadi the White and all that IT SELLS and sells a LOTttttttttt.

I am amazed at what educated people have to say, when I talk to them about the nation , their reaction is either a shirk of shoulders or don’t know attitude, this is a sad scenario BUT I am still ok with that maybe we can teach them but what about the people who go on and ON and Onnnnnnnn about how great our nation is, how this and that REALLY.. GIVE it a conscious thought, Give it a logical thought, Think for once in your life .

ARE WE HAPPY WITH THE NATION WE HAVE NOW ? if the answer to that is YES then I am sorry to be BLUNT that is being Hypocrite (which by the way is another trait of us people).  Are we blind can’t we see.. IS this what we promise those martyrs each year that we will make the nation good , IS this what we are fulfilling. No our nation is no more Saare jahan se acha .. and that’s what the TRUTH is BUT YES we have the capability to make it one, if only we open our eyes , its only been 65 years not too late yet .. we CAN still do it and make our nation great BUT for that WE will have to

Open our eyes.

Open our mind  …. and WORK towards it. We owe to it to those people who brought us this freedom WHO put it in a PLATE for us but we have been so arrogant that we just did not bother to hold that plate parallel to the ground , rather we turned it upside down and let it all fall to the ground.

THE REAL CELEBRATION WOULD BE TO MAKE SURE WE BUILD THE INDIA THAT THEY HAD VISUALISED

Furling the national flag, singing the national anthem is not gonna achieve that. We have to start to WORK on making it better. We need to face the REALITY, till we do that nothing can be changed the first step to start changing or rectifying a PROBLEM is to Accept there IS A PROBLEM… if there is no problem then what are we rectifying NOTHING.

Lets forget about these leaders, just ignore them,  so what if a foreigner said india is dirty SO WHAT.. if it felt bad then maybe you should have gone and cleaned the place .. HECK I would do that I may not have the guts to go and die for the country but I can go and clean the place and I have done it ..

The work on making the country a better place has to start,  If each of us take just a couple of hours out of a week it can work wonders. The problem is we will not do anything, but the moment someone says this is wrong , that is wrong we all attack them like a swarm of bees.. What we DONT Do is try to rectify the wrongness.

Lets all get together and for once, give a thumbs down to politics/politicians/leaders/khadi clad people , instead of wasting our time listening to them – following them -worshiping them,  Do something for the nation, just one thing a week, and do it with all our heart. Each one of us , thats a billion people doing one thing.. thats a BILLION things happening each week. Let bring the dream back again which is SAARE JAHAN SE ACHA .. HINDUSTAAN HAMARA .  
 

Safaroshi ki tamanna ab hamare dil main hai– dekhna hai zor kitna bazue katil main hai   (the passion of patriotism dwells in our heart now, we want to test how powerful the enemy is)

Karta nahin kyun  doosra kuch baatcheet- dekhta hun main jise woh chup teri mehfil main hai (why doesn’t anyone talk, whoever I see around you is quiet)

Eh shaheed – E- emulak millat main tere upar nissar — ab teri himamt ka charcha gair ki mehfil main hai   (o my country i surrender myself to you ,  your courage is talked about by others now)

Waqt aane de bata denge tujhe ey aasma , hum abhi se kya batayen kya hamare dil main hai    (let the time come we will tell you ‘o’ sky – what do we say what is in our minds Now )

Kheench kar lai hai sabko katal hone ki umeed– aashiqon ka aaj jhamghat  Koochaye qatil main hai  ( the desire to be slain has brought everyone together, the group of lovers have come together)

Dekhna hai zor kitna bazue qatil main hai …

and oh yes INKI MAA KI AANKH .. the people who are ruling us.. as the british did

Looking forward to the comments I am gonna get after this article but after commenting do read the article again with a cool mind and think what I have said .. If you dont understand DO ASK….:)

In india the 14th of November is being celebrated as the children’s day , A lot of you have already read my views on the day , and how I feel that it needs to be changed to another day rather than it being associated with the Birthday of a politician Nehru. 

But lets not talk of all that on this day .. After all its children’s day so Happy children’s day to All the kids , you have fun all of you ..

Over the blogosphere I have met so many bloggers who have beautiful kids , I know a few Buzz , Chirpy , Bably , R., the Twins  and many more so to all of them have a great day..  DO your parents proud..

Now coming to the point On this day let me tell you about a fact that not many know of and its sad that our history writers have not done anything to bring it to the limelight as they are all too far into the likes of Gandhi and Nehru’s .. to these writers others don’t exist ..  This fact also brings out the intelligence of one of the well-known martyrs of indian independence Shaheed Sardar Bhagat singh and his comrades ..

During the early organizational work being done by the martyrs was the efforts made to politicize School students, The Naujawan Bharat Sabha also formed a BAL BHARAT SABHA..  and BAL STUDENT UNION which were an organization of school children of the age 12 to 16 years old , and it had a high number of members who actually worked hard for the independence of India.

Baldev Raj the grandson of Lala Lajpat rai was secretary of the Bal Student Union.. and Kahan Chand was the president of the Amritsar chapter of Bal Bharat Sabha.

Kahan chand was a mere 11 years old when he was sentenced by the british to three months of rigorous imprisonment..

Yash another young activist was also found guilty of assisting the Lahore city unit congress and Naujwan Bharat sabha, he was only 10 at that time.. He later grew up to be editor of the Urdu daily MILAP.

Jagdish Chander  During his school days was caned by Headmaster for wearing a Gandhi  Cap. He joined Bal Bharat Sabha and later on joined naujawan  Bharat Sabha  and was known as “SHASRTI JI” among his colleagues. Participated in Bhagtanwala Bank Robbery and Kanari Bazar Dacoity case along with Jahngiri Lal, Dharam Paul,  Lajpat Rai and others. Spent almost 5-1/2 years in Jails namely Delhi, Ferozepur, Gujrat, Multan and Hoshiarpur. Was appointed as Confidential Enquiry Officer, by Punjab Congress Committee to go into atrocities committed by police in West Punjab from 1942 to 1945 and was advisor of Congress on students affairs and had been Secretary of Socialist party in 1942.

As many as a total of 1192 juveniles under the age of 15 were convicted for some reason or the other in regards to there political activities, Most of these activists belonged to bengal.

Not much has been written about these dare devils who at such a young age went on to fight for their nation. If anyone knows about other kids please do let me know too.

So today on children’s day lets not forget these forgotten children who went through all these troubles for the nation which has forgotten them.

Have a great day to all the kids out there , Enjoy your day and have fun.

Wishing You All A Very Happy Children's Day
