Independent India's first voter casts ballot in Himachal Pradesh Himachal Pradesh's oldest voter Shyam Saran Negi, who has witnessed the shaping of democracy over almost seven decades, exercised his franchise along with his wife in this tiny picturesque hamlet in Kinnaur district. "I am thankful to the god for giving me an opportunity to elect the representative," Negi said on Sunday. But he seemed to be disillusioned with the present political set-up. "Corruption is at the peak. The leaders we are sending (to the assembly and parliament) are not giving justice. They are getting more involved in corruption and scams," Negi, 95, who voted in independent India's first elections, said. "The politicians are working more like a businessman than a social worker. That is the main reason for lack of development," he rued, adding "the country needs leaders like Jawaharlal Nehru and Lal Bahadur Shastri". Recalling his first participation in the polls, Negi said at that time the (poll) facilities were lacking but th ...

Impact of Decisive leadership ! MJ Akbar, India’s most well-known journalist and doyen of modern Indian journalism, has joined the BJP and endorsed Narendra Modi as Prime Minister. As editor of Sunday and The Telegraph, MJ Akbar would tauntingly dare his critics and look controversy in the eye. He took a break from journalism when he contested and won the Lok Sabha election of 1989 from Kishengunj in Bihar. He was known for his proximity to Rajiv Gandhi. Later he left politics to launch The Asian Age and then The Sunday Guardian. He has also served as Editorial Director of the India Today Group. MJ Akbar is the author of several critically acclaimed books, including a biography of Jawaharlal Nehru. In a candid conversation with NitiCentral and NWR Live, MJ Akbar elaborated on his reasons behind endorsing Narendra Modi for Prime Minister and joining the BJP.

MANMOHAN SINGH:- A highly accomplished economist, however unfortunately power and rank do not seem to agree with him. He is the 13th and current Prime Minister of India. A renowned economist, he is the only Prime Minister since Jawaharlal Nehru to return to power after completing a full five-year term, and the first Sikh to hold the office. In 1991, as India faced a severe economic crisis, newly elected Prime Minister P. V. Narasimha Rao surprisingly inducted the apolitical Singh into his cabinet as Finance Minister. Over the next few years, despite strong opposition, he as a Finance Minister carried out several structural reforms that liberalised India's economy. This Singh-led "UPA I" government executed several key legislations and projects, including the Rural Health Mission, Unique Identification Authority, Rural Employment Guarantee scheme and Right to Information Act. In 2008, opposition to a historic civil nuclear agreement with the United States nearly caused Singh's government to fall after Le . ...

Secret report on 1962 India-China war posted online, seized by BJP All India | Edited by Deepshikha Ghosh | Updated: March 18, 2014 19:45 IST File pic: A memorial for soldiers who fought in the 1962 India-China war New Delhi: The BJP today targeted the ruling Congress over a secret report that blames the Jawaharlal Nehru government and the military leadership for India's defeat in the 1962 war against China. Excerpts of the classified report were posted online by Australian journalist Neville Maxwell on Monday. The defence ministry today said its contents are top secret as they are "extremely sensitive" and of current operational value. "What are they trying to hide by making the war report classified?" said senior BJP leader Ravi Shankar Prasad. "We have a right to know what went wrong. We lost the war because of Nehru." The report says the Indian forces were pushed into a war they could only lose, based on the assumption that the Chinese would not escalate hostilities. (Read: How India bungled 1962 war ...

Bradlaugh Hall: A symbol of a revolution Posted on September 19, 2010 - by Haroon Khalid From 1900 till 1947, for almost half a century the famous Bradlaugh Hall of Lahore situated on the Rettigan road, remained a symbol of Revolution for the entire British India. Charles Bradlaugh, Lala Lajpat Rai, Maulana Zafar Ali Khan, Ajeet Singh, Bhagat Singh, and Jawaharlal Nehru all towering figures of their times have been associated with this hall. What should have been preserved as the museum of political revolution in Lahore lies in shambles near the University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences today. There is a huge lock on the entrance of the hall placed there by The Evacuee Trust Property Board (ETPB). The gloomier aspect is that not many people of the city today are aware of the political, cultural and social significance of the Bradlaugh Hall. There are a few people who are actually aware of its existence. Rettigan road in the late 19th century was occupied by massive British bungalows. This was the elite ...

NAM or Non Aligned Movement Summits Non Aligned Movement – Backgrounder What is NAM ? The full form of NAM is Non Aligned Movement. NAM is now an international organisation of states who consider themselves not formally aligned with or against any major power. History of NAM – Who and When was it founded ? The records indicate that the term non-aligned movement was first officially used by V K Krishna Menon, Indian Diplomat and statesman, at United Nations meeting in 1953. However, the actual NAM is considered to be the brainchild of Gamal Abdul Nasser (former President of Egypt), Jawaharlal Nehru (Prime Minister of India), Josip Broz Tito (President of Yugoslav), Kwame Nkrumah (President of Ghana), Sukarno (First President of Indonesia). These five are considered as the Founding Fathers of the NAM and it was founded in April, 1955. What was the purpose of establishing NAM ? What were the objectives ? In mid fifties, world was being divided into two blocks – American block and Russian Block. Th ...
Letters to the Editor Spontaneous Hindu upheaval in 2002? SIR, In his article, ‘Modi and cyber Hindus’ (20 February), Amulya Ganguli has iterated his opposition to the BJP and the RSS. It bears recall that the pre-Partition “direct action” was masterminded by the Muslim League under the leadership of the then premier of Bengal, Suhrawardi. Dr Shyamaprasad Mookerjee was in the vanguard of the movement to resist the carnage. The question of ‘dynasty’ does not arise with Motilal Nehru and Deshbandhu Chittaranjan Das. They started the Swatantra Party, a splinter group of the Congress. The concept of “ruling dynasty” began with Jawaharlal Nehru and continues to this day via the dispensations of Indira Gandhi and Rajiv. As regards the “poisonous propaganda of the Hindu extremists”, Mr Ganguli hasn’t mentioned the terrorist activities of various Islamic organisations, such as LeT, Jaish-e-Mohammad, Hezbollah, SIMI etc. These entities are determined to destabilise India, aided and abetted .. ...

WIKIPEDIA CONFIRMS THAT NEHRU'S GRANDFATHER WAS A MUSLIM V.S.Gopalakrishnan 7 July 2013 Here is a blog (see link below) that I posted on Nehru some five years ago and I had mentioned some sources indicating that Jawaharlal Nehru's father's father was actually a Muslim called Ghiyasuddin Ghazi who was the Kotwal (equal to today's Police Commissioner) of Delhi at the time of Mutiny in 1857. He had to flee Delhi since the British attacked and killed Moghul officers who sided with the Indian Mutineers. He changed his name to Gangadhar. link: Today, I was amazed and surprised to find a wikipedia entry on the name "Gangadhar Nehru" which unequivocally confirms that Gangadhar was born as Ghiyasuddin Ghazi. Let me reproduce below the wikipedia entry for your perusal: QUOTE Gangadhar Nehru (born in 1827–1861 as Ghiyasuddin Ghazi) was a Mughal kotwal, who remained the last kotwal of Delhi (chief police officer), prior to the Indian Rebellion of 1857. He was the father of Congress leader Motilal Nehru and grandfa ...
The Beohar House:- A landmark in North Civil Lines area of Jabalpur, this elegant and prestigious manor.. Constructed soon after completion of the building which now houses the High Court of MP. This private manor has had the singular honour of hosting several visiting luminaries including Mahatma Gandhi, Dr. Rajendra Prasad, Jawaharlal Nehru, Vinoba Bhave, Osho, Bacha Khan, Mirabehn, Jamnalal Bajaj, Maithili Sharan Gupt, Shankar Dayal Sharma, Kaka Kalelkar, Thakkar Bapa, Makhanlal Chaturvedi, Somnath Hore, Arunachal Perumal, Maharshi Mahesh Yogi, Medha Patkar, Nirmal Verma, Rehman, etc. History books of the early 1820-1830s refer to the vast expanse/estate of this manor as Jamnera and subsequently Beohar-Grove.

Hirakud dam,ODISHA Hirakud Dam in Odisha is one of the longest dams in the world, about 16 mi (26 km) in length, the world’s longest earthen dam. Built in 1957, across the Mahanadi River about 15 km from Sambalpur in the state of Odisha. It is one of the first major multipurpose river valley project started after India’s independence. Before the devastating floods of 1937, Sir M. Visveswararya proposed a detailed investigation for storage reservoirs in the Mahanadi basin to tackle the problem of floods in the Mahanadi delta. It was decided to invest in the potential benefits of controlling the Mahanadi for multi-purpose use. The Central Waterways, Irrigation and Navigation Commission took up the work. A project report was submitted to the Government in June 1947. Prime Minister, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru laid the first batch of concrete on 12 April 1948. The dam was completed in the year 1953 and was formally inaugurated by Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru on 13th January 1957. The total cost of the pro ...

POLITICAL CORRUPTION IN IDIA: It is well-known that a large number of politicians, not only in India, but in most of the countries are corrupt. People are never shocked when politician’s corruption is divulged. Honest politicians are a rare breed today. Ministers like Maulana Abulkalam Azad,Rafi Ahmed Kidwai ,Lal Bahadur Shastri, Jawaharlal Nehru, etc. are rare who had very little bank balance at the time of death. Money and politics have thus an “adulterous relationship”. In a democracy all political parties need money. While all political parties are guilty of seeking the support of trade and commerce and big business. All done only with the aim of rule on people or to be in ‘Power’ and for the fulfilment of this aim, they violate morals and ethical norms and evade law to gain political power. Political corruption has become a dominant mode of corruption in modern time. Politicians try to rise and remain in power by any means right or wrong. Most of the corruption in politics is done at the t ...
Who was the first chairman of the Planning Commission? [a] Dr. S. Radhakrishnan [b] Jawaharlal Nehru [c] Dr. Rajendra Prasad [d] Dr. M. Vishveshwaraya
Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated in 1948 and Sardar Vallabhai Patel died in 1950. C Rajagopalachari and Rajendra Prasad occupied the ceremonial posts of Governor General and President respectively. Even the giant Dalit leader BR Ambedkar (father of the Constitution) was marginalized from the party and quit in 1951. What that meant was that Jawaharlal Nehru stood alone and became a virtual dictator. That was the case till his death in 1964. But at that time no-one suspected that India would be in the grips of a dynasty.
Q. Which Indian statesman used these magic words, “Long Years ago we made a tryst with destiny , and now the time comes when we shall redeem our pledge.”? (a) Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi(b) Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel (c) Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose (d) Jawaharlal Nehru
However very few outside this village know that in the village graveyard rests a man who was known as the ‘Fastest Man of Asia’. Abdul Khaliq, who died on March 10, 1988 in Rawalpindi, was the sole athlete from Pakistan who raised his country’s flag high on the tracks during Melbourne Olympics (1956) and Rome Olympics (1960). Khaliq won 100 gold medals in the national games, 26 gold medals and 23 silver medals in international games. Be it the Asian Games of 1954 in Manila, Asian Games in Tokyo 1958 or the first Indo-Pak Meet 1956 in New Delhi, Abdul Khaliq not only grabbed the gold medal but also set new records. Khaliq’s tremendous win in Asian Games 1954 (Manila) left a new record in the history of athletics as he finished in 10.6 seconds which forced the chief guest, Jawaharlal Nehru, to declare him ‘The Flying Bird of Asia’. The recent Indian movie, Bhag Milkha Bhag besides paying tribute to India’s legendry athlete Milkha Singh also brought Khaliq to the limelight. President Ayub Khan ...
Sarojini Naidu joined the Indian national movement in the wake of partition of Bengal in 1905. She came into contact with Gopal Krishna Gokhale, Rabindranath Tagore, Muhammad Ali Jinnah, Annie Besant, C. P. Ramaswami Iyer, Mahatma Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru.[4] During 1915-1918, she travelled to different regions in India delivering lectures on social welfare, women's empowerment and nationalism. She also helped to establish the Women's Indian Association (WIA) in 1917.[5] She was sent to London along with Annie Besant, President of WIA, to present the case for the women's vote to the Joint Select Committee.
To all my fellow Indians ... just pause to think .. 3 mns maximum . How come it can be called Indian National Congress .. it is not the same congress of which M.K.Gandhi , Khan Abdul Gaffar khan & Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose , not the congress of even Jawaharlal Nehru & Lalbahadur Shastri . It is a partitioned congress done to fulfill the political aspirations of a woman , named Indira Gandhi , who will be remembered by the Indians , as the lone Prime Minister who declared EMERGENCY and even didn't bother to put the general elections of the country on hold by quite some time , and was defeated all ends up , in the parliamentary election conducted just after lifting of the Dictator's Emergency . My country men please read and remember this .. until and unless they are almost ready to delete this as soon as possible after posting.
Who will tell the people that this So-called Gandhi family is a Muslim Family originally? Who will tell them that Mahatma Gandhi suggested Nehru to change Firoz Khan's name to Firoz Gandhi? Who will tell them that Firoz Khan only changed his name and not religion? That's the reason why Indira's marriage was a discreet event, and only a single photo was provided to the media, to prove that they got married in Hindu way. Does this make sense now? You always kept wondering why Congress supported the Muslims unreasonably, to the extent of making them the most dominant force in the country.This is the answer. Even the Nehru lineage is allegedly Muslims. Mughals to be precise. Search for Ghiyasuddin Ghazi on google. He's the same person we know as Gangadhar Nehru. The grand father of Jawaharlal Nehru. ~From Firstpost
A cabal of self-confessed Hindu nationalists, as distinct from Indian nationalists, consistently lauds Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel because it finds in him a soulmate. He is not praised by himself; significantly, he is always pitted against Nehru. By A.G. NOORANI “The communalism of a majority is apt to be taken for nationalism.” - Jawaharlal Nehru on January 5, 1961. IN November 1945 one of the top Congress leaders inaugurated on Marine Drive in Mumbai, just next to the Chowpati Beach, the Pransukhlal Mafatlal Hindu Swimming Pool. It was, and still is, exclusively for the use of Hindus. Its doors remain shut, even in 2013, for Muslims and other communities. No prizes for guessing who that top leader was. There was one and only one top Congress leader who would have done the deed, namely, Vallabhbhai Patel. For long a plaque on the frontage of the premises boldly proclaimed his achievement. Its implications were lost on none. The astute advocate of the two-nation theory, Mohammad Ali Jinnah, was quick to ...
Rare Photograph of RSS PARTICIPATION IN 1963 Republic Day Parade at New Delhi; INSTRUMENTAL IN KASHMIR'S ACCESSION WITH INDIA Majority of today's generation are not aware, in 1963, Jawaharlal Nehru - then PM of India had invited RSS at the Republic Day Parade, as a respect of gratitude on RSS Swayamsevak's for assisting Indian Armed Forces in fighting the Indo-China 1962 War. During the China War in 1962, the Swayamsevaks of the RSS swung into action mobilising support to the governmental measures in general and to the jawans in particular. Pandit Nehru was so impressed that he invited a Sangh contingent to take part in the Republic Day Parade of 26th January 1963. At a mere two days’ notice, over 3500 Swayamsevaks turned up at the parade in full Sangh uniform. Their massive march became the major highlight of the programme. When, later on, some Congressmen raised their eyebrows over the invitation to Sangh, Pandit Nehru brushed aside the objections saying that all patriotic citizens had been invited t ...
After India got Independence in 1947 and cauldron of social unrest (Religious tensions ) got diminished , the next challenging task for this newly born campestral was to bring social and economic stability. Jawaharlal Nehru , the then Prime Minister realized that the only way Indian Republic can re-establish its presence in the world stage and establish stability is only through the intellectual power of its citizens & Education. Keeping that in view, Nehru took the initiative and the first 'Indian Institute of Technology' came to existence in 18th Aug, 1951 in Kharagpur inaugurated by Maulana Abul Kalam Azad. Time kept on passing and within seven years of the inaugural of the first technical institute of National Importance, Nehru understood that just one Institute is not going to feed the hunger of 370 million people. That’s why Pundit Nehru had to Travel all way long to a small place named “Warangal” in the newly formed state “Andhra Pradesh” ( Merging “Telangana” with the “Andhra” On ...

After almost two decades, Sports Authority of India (SAI) has recruited 174 new assistant coaches in 16 disciplines with an aim to make the country a sporting powerhouse by the 2020 Olympics.
Indira Gandhi In fact, after Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi was the most recognised leader internationally. In a way, the present Congress Party is built on her ideology (after all her slogan “Garibi Hatao” is still used by Congressmen to garner votes). Indira Gandhi participated in the independence struggle, perhaps by default because of her father. But later she purposefully involved herself in nation building, and guided India during the 1971 war with Pakistan, which resulted in the creation of Bangladesh. And who can forget the manner in which she stood up to the belligerence of America. After acting as Minister of Information and Broadcasting (1964-66), Indira Gandhi became the Prime Minister of India from 1966-1977 and again during 1980-84. And it was during this time that agricultural growth gained a major impetus, heralding the famed ‘Green Revolution’. Indira’s misjudged moves in Punjab to break the Akali dominance (so that Congress could gain a foothold backfired) and led to one of th ...

C&P: Poor Rahul Gandhi. (in front of crowd look like cow which got stuck in a wetland) (The schoolboy vs the rock star) A man damned by comparison, forever failing to measure up to the towering standards set by Narendra Modi. Each failure, in turn, serves as further confirmation of his image as a milquetoast wannabe.

NEHRU PROMISES ON KASHMIR ISSUE THEY CAN FILE A CHARGE POSTHUMOUSLY AGAINST JAWAHAR LAL NEHRU TOO: ARUNDHATI ROY The writer is a world famous Indian writer and intellectual The Hindu November 28, 2010 “...is not the property of either India or Pakistan. It belongs to the Kashmiri people. When Kashmir acceded to India, we made it clear to the leaders of the Kashmiri people that we would ultimately abide by the verdict of their Plebiscite. If they tell us to walk out, I would have no hesitation in quitting. We have taken the issue to United Nations and given our word of honour for a peaceful solution. As a great nation we cannot go back on it. We have left the question for final solution to the people of Kashmir and we are determined to abide by their decision.” My reaction to today's court order directing the Delhi Police to file an FIR against me for waging war against the state: Perhaps they should posthumously file a charge against Jawaharlal Nehru too.

MY BELOVED COUNTRY It is the land of Shiva and Krishna, the Buddha and Mahatma Gandhi. India - my beloved country - which produced the greats of modern times in the world - has a proud place in my droughts. The biggest democracy, the land of temples and one of the oldest civilisations of the world, the second most populous country in the world after China, my country has produced warriors like Rana Pratap and Shivaji; leaders like Jawaharlal Nehru, Mahatma Gandhi, Sardar Patel, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, Bhagat Singh and Lala Lajpat Rai. In literature and science it has produced persons like Rabindra Nath Tagore, Prem Chand, Saratchandra, C.V. Ramman, Jagdish Chandra Bose and Dr. Homi Baba. India is a land of villages and fields. Its fields are fed by the mighty rivers like the Ganga, Yamuna, Brahmaputra, Godavari, Narmada and Kaveri. The Gangetic Valley is the most fertile region of our land. The oceans that guard her coasts on three sides and the mighty Himalayas on the north have given my country nat ...
December 1956 :: Jawaharlal Nehru addressing United Nations Diplomats in the U.N. General Assembly Hall in New York
LUSOFONIA GAMES 2014: SCINTILLATING INDIA ease past lethargic MACAU to reach final It was the second semi-final of the football event at the Lusofonia Games 2014, Goa. It was a wonderful evening and the local crowd was gathering up to fill the Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Fatorda and witness India play host to Macau in the decider for the finals. Goa-India were in full control of the game from the start, playing classic possession football and creating numerous chances throughout the 90 minutes. However, the team had to wait until the 17th minute to take the lead from a well struck 25-yard free kick by local boy and crowd favourite Brandon Fernandes. The Macau team, which put on a rather lethargic performance, found Brandon too hard to handle who was all over the pitch, supplying through balls, key passes and drilling shoots from outside the box. The first half ended 1-0. India picked up just where they left off during the break and started the second half with the same flair, but couldn’t find that ...

EXCELLENT ARTICLE Rahul Gandhi proves he is worth little, capable of even less - By Tavleen Singh The man who has inherited the legacy of Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi has never before in the 10 years that he has been a politician deigned to give a formal interview. He has preferred in his relations with the media to take the shoot and scoot route perfected by his mother. What this involves is making a prepared statement and then departing before anyone can ask the first question. You can count on the fingers of one hand the interviews that Sonia Gandhi has chosen to give in the decade she has been India’s de facto Prime Minister. And, she has personally selected the interviewer and arranged in advance that certain questions be avoided. Could he explain why none of the Prime Ministers from his illustrious family had built the quality State schools that India so desperately needs for Indian women and her young people to be given the smallest chance of becoming ‘empowered’? for more

God decided to encourage people to have fewer children and introduced an award scheme… During the procedure at one point, he concentrated on learning about the situation in India: He first met Jawaharlal Nehru in heaven, and asked him how many children he had during his time on earth. Nehru replied… only one! Happy with the relatively good family planning adopted, God awarded Nehru with a Celestial Rolls Royce! Indira Gandhi was next, and God asked the same question. She replied she had two children, and God thought, not too bad, so he gave her a BMW. Dr. Radhakrishnan was next in line. God was not pleased to hear that he had six children, and gave him a Morris-8 as a kind of punishment… Sometime later, the three (Nehru, Indira and Radhakrishnan) going around in their new cars, saw Mahatma Gandhi on foot!!! Wondering what went wrong; they asked why God hadn't been merciful with him… The Mahatma replied in disgust, "God did not even ask me!!! Some *** had told him that I am the Father of the Nat .. ...
Jawaharlal Nehru & Mahatma Gandhi Many years ago, when I was a little boy, my mother used to tell me stories. One of here preferred stories was about two friends that was dreaming to be free together with their people, to have their own country, to be recognized as equal humans with all the people of the world. To make their dream to come true, they had to fight against the British Empire. Without shooting one gunfire, they defeated the Empire because they were believing in their dream. As a child, I was thinking about the two friends that had to be giants to defeat alone the British Empire. Today, I think the same, the two, were GIANTS, of India’s history, of the humanity.
The first ever agitation for the hill state was organized in 1957 under the leadership of erstwhile ruler of Tehri Manvendra Shah but it took almost 14 years to assume shape of a common cause of the people of the region. Uttarakhand Rajya Parishad, formed in 1973 took up the cause and became a platform for struggle. The movement produced a political party, namely Uttarakhand Kranti Dal in July 1979 under the chairmanship of former vice-chancellor of Kumaun University. Its first-ever MLA (Jaswant Singh Bisht) was elected in the assembly election held in 1980. Kashi Singh Eree wining in 1985 became its second representative to the state assembly. But this was the only main road, Uttarakhand Kranti Dal could make. Bhartiya Janata Party came up with a major force (and ultimately became a dominant party) in the hills after it started justifying the demand for new state. As far the state assembly was concerned, it passed a government-sponsored motion demanding Uttarakhand state, on 12th August 1991 Samajwadi Pa ...
Who was made the Home Minister when Jawaharlal Nehru formed the interim Government in 1946 ? (1) Baldev Singh (2) Liaqat Ali Khan (3) Mohammad Ali Jinnah (4) Sardar Patel
Known as 'Mahatma' (great soul), Gandhi was the leader of the Indian nationalist movement against British rule, and is widely considered the father of his country. His doctrine of non-violent protest to achieve political and social progress has been hugely influential. Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was born on 2 October 1869 in Porbandar in Gujarat. After university, he went to London to train as a barrister. He returned to India in 1891 and in 1893 accepted a job at an Indian law firm in Durban, South Africa. Gandhi was appalled by the treatment of Indian immigrants there, and joined the struggle to obtain basic rights for them. During his 20 years in South Africa he was sent to prison many times. Influenced primarily by Hinduism, but also by elements of Jainism and Christianity as well as writers including Tolstoy and Thoreau, Gandhi developed the satyagraha ('devotion to truth'), a new non-violent way to redress wrongs. In 1914, the South African government conceded to many of Gandhi's demands. Gandhi ret ...

How Sardar Patel’s daughter was Treated These anecdotes are from Verghese Kurien’s memoirs - I Too Had A Dream Maniben Patel, Sardar Patel’s daughter, was a woman of tremendous honesty and loyalty. She told me that when Sardar Patel passed way, she picked up a book and a bag that belonged to him and went to meet Jawaharlal Nehru in Delhi. She handed them to Nehru, telling him hat her father had instructed her that when she died she should give these items to Nehru and no one else. The bag contained Rs 35 Lakh that belonged to the Congress Party and the book was the party’s book of accounts. Nehru took them and thanked her. Maniben waited expectantly, hoping he would say something more,but he did not, so she got up and left. I asked her what she had expected Nehru to say to her. ‘I thought he might ask me how I would manage now, or atleast ask if there was anything he could do to help me. But he never asked.’ she explained. She was extremely disheartened and in a way the incident revealed the s ...

Legacy and Influence Azad is remembered as amongst the leading Indian nationalists of his time. His firm belief in Hindu-Muslim unity earned him the respect of the Hindu community and he still remains one of the most important symbols of communal harmony in modern India. His work for education and social upliftment in India made him an important influence in guiding India's economic and social development. The Ministry of Minority Affairs of the central Government of India setup the Maulana Azad Education Foundation in 1989 on the occasion of his birth centenary to promote education amongst educationally backward sections of the Society.[24] The Ministry also provides the Maulana Abul Kalam Azad National Fellowship, an integrated five year fellowship in the form of financial assistance to students from minority communities to pursue higher studies such as M. Phil and Ph.D.[25] Numerous institutions across India have also been named in his honor. Some of them are the Maulana Azad Medical College in New Del ...

"You don't change the course of history by turning the faces of portraits to the wall" Jawaharlal Nehru
Subhas Chandra Bose was born on 23 January 1897 (at 12.10 pm) in Cuttack, Orissa Division, Bengal Province, to Prabhavati Devi and Janakinath Bose, an advocate.[30] He was the ninth child of a total of fourteen siblings. He was admitted to the Protestant European School like his other brothers and sisters in January 1902. He continued his studies at this school which was run by the Baptist Mission up to the year 1909 and then shifted to the Ravenshaw Collegiate School. The day Subhas was admitted to this school, Beni Madhav Das, the then Headmaster of the school, understood how brilliant and scintillating was the genius of this little boy. After securing the second position in the matriculation examination in 1913, he got admitted to the Presidency College where he studied briefly.[31] His nationalistic temperament came to light when he was expelled for assaulting Professor Oaten for the latter's anti-India comments. He later joined the Scottish Church College at the University of Calcutta and passed his ...

Myths and Facts of Making of Constitution (Yugandhar – Dr.Babasaheb Ambedkar) It was during 1965-70…India and China was over and India was defeated in that war. Indian economy was shattered like anything facing two major wars post independence. Mr. Jawaharlal Nehru was trying to bring up the economic condition of India on national and international platform. He visited United States of America in this connection. As soon as he arrived USA, the US media surrounded him and pondering question on the ongoing situation and the stand taken by the government. Mr. Jawaharlal Nehru felt annoyed, disturbed and could not answer the question posed on him by the US media. Later on the Media person tried to enquire the state of mind of Mr. Nehru from Mr. Kennedy, the US President. Kennedy smiled at media personals and replied gently. His words spoke the truth, he said “ Mr. Abraham Lincoln was so lucky that we could find his murderer immediately. But this man(referring to Mr.Nehru) is unable to find the real ene ...
My Friends, Before I discuss the sutras, a real concern to my heart is more urgent to be discussed. India's Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi has been trying his hardest to create a friendship with China, and it seems they are settling the matter. I don't blame Rajiv Gandhi. Two big countries like India and China cannot remain forever enemies -- whoever is weaker, sooner or later is going to give way. This is the second defeat to India. The first defeat was when China invaded Indian territory in the Himalayas, thousands of miles. India was not strong enough, and particularly it was not ready to fight in the eternal snows of the Himalayas. Rajiv Gandhi's grandfather -- Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of India -- still fought, knowing perfectly well there was no possibility to be victorious. And he was defeated. The Indian armies could not stand the snows of the Himalayas. They had never thought about it; hence they were not prepared. China conquered Tibet. One of the most significant countries in the ...

Where does the INTELLIGENCE disappear or are these HIGHLY INTELLIGENCE men STOOPING a little LOW DOWN and looking at WRONG PLACES to find INTELLIGENCE in women.. ???

The memories and stories I share are nothing compared to the memories and stories that Morgan has. While discussing the Peace Corps with him yesterday, I asked what people he'd met as a result of being in the Peace Corps. By the way, we know that Morgan was the first African American from Delaware to join the Peace Corps. We have not been able to document if he was the first Delawarean to join or not. Morgan had dinner at the home of Jawaharlal Nehru, Prime Miniister of India. (Yes, Nehru was at the dinner. Morgan spent two years in Allahabad, India which was were Nehru was born. Morgan also met Sargent Shriver, ( Maria's father) and Vice President Hubert Humphrey. Morgan's Peace Corps experience gave him the opportunity to travel to India, Japan,Indnesia, the Phillipines, Singapor, Malaysia, Bankok, Thailand, Kuala Lumpur, Panang and Viet Nam. Not bad for a poor Black guy from Dover, DE. He joined The Peace Corps right after graduation from Delaware State College in 1961.
Please read my article "Rahul Gandhi gets his Principle Right-Facts Wrong" and share your opinions. Mr. Rahul Gandhi has got it right. Political parties cannot be personality centric. Political parties must have a structure, an ideology and inner party democracy. They cannot be run on the whims of an individual. We may now try to analyse as to what went wrong with a number of political parties in India that they became unstructured and personality oriented. Pt.Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister was charismatic. The Congress in the 1950s started identifying with him. This led to the marginalization of a large number of political leaders who did not agree with him. When he made Mrs. Indira Gandhi President of the AICC in the late 1950s it was the beginning of Congress Party’s official acknowledgement that dynastic rule was ushering in. Many senior leaders were by-passed in order to enable the daughter of the Prime Minister to become the Party President. Mrs. Indira Gandhi’s personality dominated ...

Indian politicians who died mysteriously Party: Bharatiya Jana Sangh, Hindu Mahasabha Death: 23 June, 1953 Dr. Shyama Prasad Mookerjee, also known as Shyama Prasad Mukherjee died under ‘mysterious’ conditions followed by his arrest when he entered Kashmir on 11th May 1953. Dr. Mukherjee, who suffered from dry pleurisy and coronary problems was taken to hospital 90 days after he was arrested. Though, he informed the doctor about his allergic reactions to penicillin, he was administered one. Dr. Mukherjee vehemently opposed the decision of Indian National Congress of providing a separate Emblem, flag and Prime Minister to Kashmir. To protest against the same, he entered Srinagar and was immediately arrested. Rumor mills suggest that Sheikh Abdullah and Jawaharlal Nehru joined hands to poison Dr. Mukherjee. What’s more shocking is no post mortem was carried out contrary to the regular medical procedure, post death. In fact, Maulana Azad, the acting Prime Minister did not even allow Dr. Mukherjee’s bo ...
A classified record from the Ministry of External Affairs lays bare the Indian government's less than honest approach towards finding out the truth about Subhash Chandra Bose' presence in Soviet Russia after his assumed death. (Check the notes here and here) Classified as "Secret", the second highest level of security grading for a government document after "Top Secret", the record is from 1996 when Pranab Mukherjee, now President, was the External Affairs Minister. Mukhrjee's noting appears on the record along with that of the then Foreign Secretary Salman Haidar. A bare reading of the two-page record shows that the controversy surrounding the freedom fighter's fate isn't limited to a bygone era and that it is not just about Jawaharlal Nehru, who has been painted with a black brush by many Netaji fans. In essence, the document, a note created in 1996 in the Europe East Division of the ministry by Joint Secretary (later Ambassador) RL Narayan, deals with the charges that Bose was in Soviet Russia.

Anna Hazare, Kiran Bedi, Swami Agnivesh, Anupam Kher, Baba Ramdev, Medha Patkar, Santosh Hegde.Where these people are today? All are removed by Kejriwal except Santosh Hegde, who is almost isolated. Who are promoted? 26 year Rakhi Birla, 33 year old Somnath Bharti, who can never go above Kejriwal. This "lack of broadness/chicken heart" will hamper AAP as a party. Anybody who would try to grow more than Kejriwal, he will be curtailed down by the "followers" (smaller people, who know that they can never go beyond Kejriwal and owe their reputation to Kejriwal and thus sycophants of Kejriwal, like Manish Sisodia, Kumar Vishwas). If you see the history of Congress or even BJP, you would find broadminded leaders like Jawaharlal Nehru (who had no problems ...

How and why Indira Gandhi who was PM in 1971 got Bharat Ratna in 1971 ? Posted: November 24, 2013 | Author: nationalizer | Filed under: Politics, RTI |92 Comments » It all started with a curiosity. I was just going through the list of Bharat Ratna awardees where I saw three of the six Nehru-Gandhi family members are in it. Nehru got it in 1955, Indira got it in 1971 and Rajiv got it in 1991. In Home ministry site there is a note which says Bharat Ratna is awarded in recognition of exceptional service/performance of the highest order in any field of human endeavour. The recommendations for Bharat Ratna are made by the Prime Minister himself to the President. Then I checked who the Prime Ministers were in 1955, 1971 and 1991. PMO website claims that Jawaharlal Nehru was the Prime Minister in 1955, Indira was in 1971. That naturally leads to these questions? Did Jawaharlal Nehru recommend himself for Bharat Ratna in 1955? Did Indira Gandhi recommend herself for Bharat Ratna in 1971? Although the facts ab .. ...

Education can be transformed if one adopts fresh technologies and continues to learn constantly. Improving knowledge and upgrading competencies help one achieve employability skills, Vice-Chancellor of Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University-Kakinada G. Tulasi Ram Das said. The concluding day of the annual students’ convention of Computer Society of India, jointly hosted by Visakhapatnam Steel Plant, Andhra University and JNTU-K, saw experts sharing their views on enhancing employability skills and building competencies. “We have a lot of potential as far as ICT Infrastructure is concerned. Keeping abreast of the industry requirement and technology trends will strengthen the competency level,” Prof. Das said. Later, he explained about the merits of online paperless evaluation, training on e-lace and how e-studio can make life easier. President of CSI S.V. Raghavan said: “The intervention with the students had set me thinking. There were many students who requested me to organise regional-level c ...

SPEECH BY THE PRESIDENT OF INDIA, SHRI PRANAB MUKHERJEE AT THE INAUGURATION OF THE GOLDEN JUBILEE CELEBRATIONS OF THE TRIBAL RESEARCH AND TRAINING INSTITUTE Pune, Maharashtra: 28-12-2013 1. I am glad to be present here this evening to celebrate the Golden Jubilee celebrations of Tribal Research and Training Institute of the Government of Maharashtra. Fifty years is not a very long time in the life of an Institute, but it is long enough to reflect on where we started from, where we are today and to make plans and programmes for the future. From that point of view, let me congratulate this Institute for reaching an important milestone while catering to the cause of tribal welfare. This organization has provided necessary inputs to the State Government to design policies and programmes for tribal development. 2. Our policy for tribal welfare is founded on the principles first enunciated by Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. The crux of those principles is human development with conservation of the rich and diverse cul ...
Mrs. Indira Gandhi: 1. Daughter of Jawaharlal Nehru 2. She was named Indira Priyadarshini Nehru. 3. She fell in love and decided to marry Feroze Khan, a family friend. 4. Feroze Khan’s father, Nawab Khan, was a Muslim, and mother was a Persian Muslim. 5. Jawaharlal Nehru did not approve of the inter-caste marriage for political reasons 6. If Indira Nehru were to marry a Muslim she would loose the possibility of becoming the heir to the future Nehru dynasty. 7. At this juncture, according to one story, Mahatma Gandhi intervened and adopted Feroze Khan, gave him his last name (family name/caste name) and got the name of Feroz Khan changed to Feroz Gandhi by an affidavit in England. 8. Thus, Feroze Khan became Feroze Gandhi. 9. The Indira Gandhi was not Gandhi but Indira gained the surname "Gandhi" by her marriage to Feroze Gandhi. 10. She had no relation to Mahatma Gandhi, either by blood or marriage.

To-day is his 90th birthday. Let us pray the Almighty Lord Jagannath for his early recovery and long life.
Biography of Indira Gandhi, India's third Prime Minister, also known as the Iron Lady of India. She was the first woman elected to head a democratic country, following in the footsteps of her father, India's first Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru.
About Permanent Security Council Seat for India--interesting to note: Wikipedia: Washington Post reported that "India was offered a permanent seat on the council 55 years ago, in 1955. But that offer, made by the United States and the Soviet Union, was declined by India's first Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru. Nehru said the seat should be given to China instead." [5] The council seat then was held by Taiwan (ROC). This decision by Nehru is seen as a blunder and the loss of an opportunity to attain a stronger diplomatic stature by India. If India were to accept this offer it would have required the United Nations charter to be amended to include India in place of Republic of China (Taiwan) in the Security Council or to expand the Council. It is not known whether the Taiwanese government representing China's seat at the time in the Security Council would have vetoed the amendment or accepted the amendment under US pressure as Taiwan was solely dependent on the US for its protection from mainland China.

Our colonial legacy: Rulers & the ruled Raghuvendra Tanwar To maintain an elevated identity, symbols of power were created and The Automobiles of the Maharajas. Mahatma Gandhi was among the first to have spoken on the issue of elitism at great length. In his usual but uniquely uncommon manner, Mahatma Gandhi had warned: “Democracy cannot be run if you leave your thinking to be done by those who live in palaces whether they be the British or our own countrymen” (June 3, 1947, Prayer Meeting). Some days later, Gandhiji again shared his disgust and pain for the manner in which British pomp, pageantry and protocol were being adopted by those on whom the responsibility to govern free India had fallen: “The imposing array of bodyguards and liveried servants moving about in palatial buildings of provincial governors and ministers… when the people are starving for want of food and employment”. On July 28, 1947, Gandhi wrote to Jawaharlal Nehru, advising him on the urgent need for simplicity and austerit ...
EXCELLENT ARTICLE - WHY Sonia Gandhi REGIME IS SO KEEN ON SECTION 377 VICTORIAN ERA LAW ON HOMOSEXUALITY MUST BE AMENDED Section 377: A Hindu view of alternate sexuality - By Sandhya Jain The great lesson from the revival of the Victorian era law on homosexuality, therefore, is that the Indian Constitution and the Indian Penal Code need to be revisited Clause by Clause; Sections that need amendment must be amended and those need to be junked must be junked. Article 370 and special rights for undefined minorities, imposed by Jawaharlal Nehru, need special examination. Since the ascent of the UPA, and particularly under UPA-II, there has been a virtual assault on Indian cultural sensitivities with an aggressive in-your-face promotion of alternative sexuality, *** parades, *** walks, and attempts to legitimise these as an equal-parallel form of sexuality through films, with the active involvement of Western activists. Many who gave media interviews at Delhi’s first *** parade had come from the West, main . ...

U knw Jaswant Singh ( JASWANT GARH ) in tawang but do you know BOB KHATHING ??? _ In 1951, Major Bob Khathing commanded a force of 200 soldiers and re-established India’s sovereignty over Arunachal Pradesh, much to the annoyance of Jawaharlal Nehru. Sidharth Mishra profiles his life and work on his 100th birth anniversary Sixty-four years after Independence, it seems we have consigned to the dustbin of history some of our freedom fighters and stalwarts who played a sterling role in knitting the country together. Ironically, the discourse has been confined to the positive role played by Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel and, of course, the fallacies of Nehruvian policy. In the process, the contributions of a few great men do not even make it to the footnote of our mainstream history. Blame it on the lack of official acknowledgment of their work and, of course, the failure of intellectuals, rooted in their respective ideological moorings, to initiate an independent research to unveil the truth. One such initiati . ...
Actually, it was the Congress and its supreme leader and fake secularist Jawaharlal Nehru who conspired against the people of Jammu & Kashmir in the 1940s and handed down to the well-known anti-minority and ultra-communal Kashmiri leadership, a system under which it would exercise absolute, unbridled and extraordinary legislative, executive and financial powers, sans any accountability and responsibility, and deprive the minorities of their natural rights, including the right to lead a dignified life and have an equal and an effective say in the governance as part and parcel of the state polity. In fact, Jawaharlal Nehru and his coterie deliberately drove Jammu & Kashmir away from the national mainstream through a divisive and undemocratic Article 370 to pander to communal forces in Kashmir and empower them to rule the state in the manner they wanted. He subverted the cardinal principles of democracy to render the minorities unreal and ineffective for practical purposes. There should be no doubt about it. ...

It shares this position with Renmin University of China. Indian institutions account for 10 per cent of the list but do not make the cut for the top 10, which is comprised by varsities of China, South Africa, Taiwan, Turkey and Russia. Besides the five BRICS countries, universities from 17 other emerging economies were ranked.

Q) Who was the first external affairs minister of India ? Answer: Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru
India's position in world education: The inaugural Times Higher Education BRICS & Emerging Economies Rankings 2014 have highlighted China’s ‘utter dominance’ in the higher education sector. Though India is nowhere near its neighbour, 10 of its institutes figure in the top 100 list, which was published Tuesday after analysing institutes from 22 countries. China has claimed four of the top 10 slots, and 23 of the top 100. The country’s Peking University leads the rankings and Tshingua University is second. Taiwan, officially the Republic of China, has notched up 21 slots. The Indian tally is led by Chandigarh’s Panjab University, which has claimed the thirteenth place, ahead of six IITs that stand between No. 30 and No. 47. A high citation record is seen as the reason behind PU’s success. Other Indian institutes on the list are Jadavpur University (No. 47), Aligarh Muslim University (No. 50) and Jawaharlal Nehru University (No. 57). Phil Baty, editor of the Times Higher Education Rankings, told ...

Jawaharlal Nehru was a hero for Nelson Mandela. More so than, even Gandhi. Now that says something about this so called 'useless' PM of India that not only is he an internationally revered statesman but the person who idolised him too, is an internationally revered statesman. I don't wish to create a new competition of Nehru vs Gandhi. The on-going Nehru vs Patel is damaging enough. Some self-glorifying Indians may today seek to demean this PM of India and drag his name through the mud. They are trying to rewrite the history with the sole of aim of blaming every problem faced by India on this so called 'useless and morally decadent' PM of India. Having had no freedom fighters subscribing to their ideologies, they are attempting to 'adopt' a leader rather than adopt that leaders ideology. However, what Indians should know is that, the participating in this false propaganda of one self-glorifying man will not help India in anyway. They may not have agreed on each and every matter, but both valued each other ...

A theory must be tempered with reality, Jawaharlal Nehru holding hands, & remembering the little things,
At times we Indians display a very wicked sense of humour. Whether it was going to UN for Kashmir or the 62 war with China, Nehru's policies showed that he was extremely poor at understanding the world. I was amazed when I read that our great sycophants have an award called 'Jawaharlal Nehru Award for International Understanding' :-) and they gave it to Mandela. Poor Mandela might have gone into depression after receiving it.
THE WORLD AGAIN LOSES Mahatma Gandhi The passing at age 95 on Thursday of Nelson Mandela, the towering South African leader and iconic world statesman, will be mourned deeply across all continents. This great African gave humane leadership and set an example for all peoples. He was a man of courage, of passion, of struggle and indomitable spirit who learned from life at every turn, harboured no ill-will against those who hurt him, and was keen to negotiate, not maim and kill, without losing his purpose. Born a tribal prince in South Africa’s Cape region, Mandela identified himself deeply with the struggle of his compatriots whose land was captured by Europeans and scarred by the policy of apartheid. Mandela was imprisoned for life following the infamous Rivonia trial of 1962, but later led people of all races to a stirring victory over apartheid through a negotiated revolution, creating the new SA that eschewed apartheid against whites. He was given the Nobel Peace Prize and India honoured him with Bhar ...

BEYOND THE LINES- BOOK BY KULDEEPNAYARS For someone nicknamed ‘Bhola’ by his parents, Kuldip Nayar’s can hardly be described as a simple life. He has spent it well and lived it in all its diversity, not as just a spectator but, as his account Beyond the Lines says, as an active participant in some of the big developments that took place around him. What’s more, he is frank about his role in making some things happen and preventing others. Beyond the Lines is not the story of a journalist satisfied with informing people and stirring controversy, breaking a few stories along the way. Not averse to flirting with the establishment and accused of turning politicians into Prime Ministers, by the 1970s Nayar had come far enough from his first journalistic assignment at an Urdu paper in Delhi to actually sound out Indira Gandhi about the possibility of entering the political scene. Actually, such was the nature of his relationship with the government in Delhi that sometimes it was impossible to separate N ...

Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru (1st Prime Minister of India) "There is a universal appeal in his martyrdom. Hazrat Imam Hussein (a.s) sacrificed his all, but he refused to submit to a tyrannical government
In 1952, the ANC began preparation for a joint Defiance Campaign against apartheid with Indian and communist groups, founding a National Voluntary Board to recruit volunteers. Deciding on a path of nonviolent resistance influenced by Mahatma Gandhi, some considered it the ethical option, but Mandela instead considered it pragmatic. At a Durban rally on 22 June, Mandela addressed an assembled crowd of 10,000, initiating the campaign protests, for which he was arrested and briefly interned in Marshall Square prison. With further protests, the ANC's membership grew from 20,000 to 100,000; the government responded with mass arrests, introducing the Public Safety Act, 1953 to permit martial law. In May, authorities banned Transvaal ANU President J. B. Marks from making public appearances; unable to maintain his position, he recommended Mandela as his successor. Although the ultra-Africanist Bafabegiya group opposed his candidacy, Mandela was elected regional president in October. On 30 July 1952, Mandela was a ...

In a circular sent to the state governments last week, the AICTE said that only MBA and MCA courses will be considered for recognition in the distance education mode if the respective institutes have the joint approval from the Distance Education Council (DEC), University Grants Commission (UGC) and the AICTE. The AICTE has barred institutes from offering BE, B.Tech, Architecture, Town planning, Pharmacy, Hotel Management and Catering Technology, Applied Arts and Craft and post-graduate diploma in management courses through distance education mode. “It is an AICTE policy not to recognise the qualifications acquired through distance mode at diploma, bachelor’s and master’s level in these fields. It now has a policy to consider only MBA and MCA through distance mode,” the circular notes. The AICTE alerte ...
4. it can (or should) be abolished. But, unfortunately, this is what Jawaharlal Nehru contrived in 1950.
Pune University History The University stands for humanism and tolerance, for reason, for adventure of ideas and for the search of truth. It stands for the forward march of the human race towards even higher objectives. If the universities discharge their duties adequately then it is well with the nation and the people.quote - Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru First Prime Minister of India These words of Jawaharlal Nehru embody in them the guiding principle of Pune University. Established in 1948, the University has since become one of the leading centers for research and teaching in the country. The 400 acre campus is located in the North Western part of Pune. The placid environs and state of the art facilities provide it's numerous students with an ideal atmosphere to pursue research in various areas of Science, Arts, Commerce and Languages. The University houses 40 departments which provide a wide array of academic programs. Though a young centre, the University has made a significant impact in various areas of res ...
Despite strong objections of some framers of the constitution, who pressured Jawaharlal Nehru to insist on including Article 370?
Article 370 was and is about providing space, in matters of governance, to the people of a State who felt deeply vulnerable about their identity and insecure about the future. At the Bharatiya Janata Party’s recent Lalkar rally in Jammu, its Prime Ministerial candidate, Narendra Modi, called for a debate on Article 370. This is encouraging and suggests that the BJP may be willing to review its absolutist stance on the Article that defines the provisions of the Constitution of India with respect to Jammu and Kashmir. Any meaningful debate on Article 370 must, however, separate myth from reality and fact from fiction. My purpose here is to respond to the five main questions that have already been raised in the incipient debate. Why it was incorporated First, why was Article 370 inserted in the Constitution? Or as the great poet and thinker, Maulana Hasrat Mohini, asked in the Constituent Assembly on October 17, 1949: “Why this discrimination please?” The answer was given by Nehru’s confidant, the wi ...
I love it! I was so wrong. Mandela was not Gandhian. His hero was Jawaharlal Nehru! That's gonna freak people out! :)
Let us Walk In Madiba’s Footsteps and not consign Mandela’s great compassion and courage to the dust heap of history As every good deed begets another, every great leader inspires other leaders to greatness. To Mohandas Gandhi goes the credit for having vitalised the extraordinary achievements of Martin Luther King, Aung San Suu Kyi, Nelson Mandela and others last century. Coming decades will unveil new titans rising from Mandela’s long struggle to uplift South Africa above the darkness of apartheid, into the light of multiracial democracy. So we do more than mourn the passing of a great leader today. We celebrate the lessons of his life. In a way, Mandela’s struggle was waged against a harsher environment than Gandhi battled. In India the oppressor was a coloniser, a foreigner who operated almost wholly through Indian intermediaries. South Africans who weren’t white didn’t have this ‘luxury’; their chains were wrought by their own countrymen who had nowhere else to go. Another difference ...
Sheela Bhatt A lot has been written about the speeches Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi makes. If you observe what Rahul Gandhi and his team are doing, do you find them and the Congress Party on the right track to take on Modi? The Congress's electoral strategy is completely mystifying to most of us. Why is it mystifying? Frankly, Rahul Gandhi is not generating the kind of support and excitement that he should. In fact, there is a lot of disillusionment. There was a sense in 2009 that he would promise something new. And it is fundamentally for three reasons. One, he is trying to put on this act that he is an outsider to the system and not responsible for the failures of the UPA (United Progressive Alliance) government. And that simply doesn't wash. The fact of the matter is that he is one of the most powerful politicians in the UPA and this attempt to distance party and the government has completely backfired. The second reason has to do with his persona. Politics is a full-time job. There have been l ...

The programme which was conducted by the well-known Economist Prof. Jayati Ghosh started off with a two minute silence on the two path-breaking events of the day: the demolition of the Babri Masjid in 1992, and the sad demise of the anti-aparthied leader, Nelson Mandela just a few hours ago.

President Mandela has gone, and all over the world there is a feeling of forlorn, and sadness. All of us feel it, and we don't know when we will be able to forget it. But we all know with that feeling there is also a feeling of proud thankfulness that it has been given to us of this generation to be associated with this mighty person. To borrow some words of Mr. Jawaharlal Nehru: In years to come, centuries and maybe millenia after us, people will think of this generation when this man of God trod on Earth, and will think of us who, however small, could also follow his path and tread the holy ground where his feet had been. May God bless him.
“Like some supremely beautiful woman, whose beauty is almost impersonal and above human desire, such was Kashmir in all its feminine beauty of river and valley...” - Jawaharlal Nehru while discussing Art 370 with his cabinet colleagues
A VERY FINE ARTICLE - ON THINGS TO COME 2014 IN INDIA NEMESIS IS HERE Year 2014 belongs to Narendra Modi - By N.V. Subramanian If elections are measured by wars of words, the 2014 national poll promises to be gruesome. Physical violence may also be attempted on the person of Narendra Modi, who narrowly escaped bomb explosions in the Patna rally. The major portion of the blame for what inevitably will be the nastiest hustings in present memory should go to the dynastic Congress Party, but the focus of considerable calumny would be the Gujarat chief minister, who will typically shrug off the attacks, and strike with greater vigour against the commissions and omissions of the Nehru-Gandhis. 2014 will be the year of Narendra Modi. Almost since the day that Modi took over as chief minister from the ailing and incompetent Keshubhai Patel, he has been the target of attack. The Narmada agitators maidenly saw him as Lucifer. After Godhra, the communalists set of in pursuit. When the United Progressive Alliance cam ...

Please read a book, INSIDE BANGLADESH TODAY by an Eye-Witness Account, BASANT CHATTERJEE PUBLISHED BY S. CHAND & CO (Pvt) LTD. RAM NAGAR, New Delhi, 110055 From above book: Subsequently, an eight-man delegation with such leading lights as N. C. Chatterjee, Shyama Prosad Mukerjee …….. met Jawaharlal Nehru (nahar is Arabic word as his language was also Farsi/Urdu) at Delhi, and protested to him against the injustice then being done to East Bengal Hindus. But Nehru argued with them that had Bengal not been partitioned, the whole of it would have gone to Pakistan. “So, by partitioning it, we have saved a part of it and Calcutta for India,” he said. The second point he put forward was that even this partition in its then absolute form would prove to be a temporary one. His words as quoted were as follows: “East Pakistan will not last even for two years. West Pakistan may succeed as a separate country, but not the eastern wing. The East will only be exploited by the West, till it will be forced to s . ...
The world mourns the demise of another leader………. Every Leader in the world pays to tribute to great personalities like Nelson Mandela, Human Rights Activist, and other leaders like him Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru when they pass from this world to the next. After some years have passed, some, leaders and people from these great leaders own countries even accuse them of things they did not do/are not or forget these great souls, who died fighting for their people’s freedom, peace, justice and human rights. Then their names, works become simply a symbol of freedom, peace, human rights, an art to view, to read about in history books. Their view, speeches, quotes are echoed the world over. However, people forget the true essence of their struggle for freedom, justice and human rights in their daily walks of life. We can change and make this a better world with the seeds that these great leaders have sown if and only if the change begins with each one of us (at home, at work, at places of worship) ...

Pappu takes to pen… Focus A look at the politicisation of crime and its inroads into literature. In the bygone era, India had important political leaders who were masters of the art of possibility as well as wordsmiths of great ability. Some of them like Sampoornanand, Acharya Narendra Dev, Seth Govind Das, Kanhaiyalal Maniklal Munshi, C. Rajagopalachari and Ram Manohar Lohia made their mark as creative writers as well as serious political thinkers who made effective use of the written word. There were hundreds of others who might not have been important leaders but were active in politics and emerged as significant writers in their languages. Sajjad Zahir, Majrooh Sultanpuri, Kaifi Azmi, Subhadra Kumari Chauhan, Yashpal, Sachchidanand Hiranand Vatsyayan ‘Agyeya’, Ramvilas Sharma, Phanishwar Nath ‘Renu’, Nagarjun, Muktibodh, Namwar Singh and many others made their mark in this respect. Mahatma Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru had received widespread acclaim for their masterly English prose and both p ...

Jawaharlal Nehru's grand father a Muslim Mugal Ghiyasuddin Ghazi who adopted the name Gangadhar Nehru Some hidden facts about the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty The Nehru-Gandhi dynasty starts with the Mughal man named Ghiyasuddin Ghazi. He was the City Kotwal i.e. police officer of Delhi prior to the uprising of 1857, under the Mughal rule. After capturing Delhi in 1857, in the year of the mutiny, the British were slaughtering all Mughals everywhere. The British made a thorough search and killed every Mughal so that there were no future claimant to the throne of Delhi. The Hindus on the other hand were not targeted by the British unless isolated Hindus were found to be siding with the Mughals, due to past associations. Therefore, it became customary for many Mohammedans to adopt Hindu names. So, the man Ghiyasuddin Ghazi (the word means kafir-killer) adopted a Hindu name Gangadhar Nehru and thus saved his life by the subterfuge. Ghiyasuddin Ghazi apparently used to reside on the bank of a canal (or Nehr) near the ...

A G NOORANI ON HYEDRABAD Mountbatten was the main unifier, not Patel BY A.G. Noorani On 28th Nov 2013 in Deccan Chronicle There is, however, one fundamental difference between the two situations. Abraham Lincoln did not hate the Southern states; Vallabhbhai Patel hated Hyderabad’s identity and its culture and bore a pronounced hostility towards Muslims. In glaring contrast, Jawaharlal Nehru admired Hyderabadi culture, strove even in 1956 to preserve its integrity, and was deeply pained at the atrocities inflicted on Muslims to which Patel was indifferent. Like Lincoln, Nehru’s sole concern was the Union. One incident brings out in bold relief the profound difference in their two outlooks. In 1945, Patel inaugurated the Pransukhlal Mafatalal Hindu Swimming Bath on the Marine Drive in Bombay. It was exclusively for the use of Hindus. Muslims were and still are barred from its membership. Nehru would never have stooped to this. Mohammed Ali Jinnah was not slow to censure Patel. In a statement issued on 1 ...

Brand-name of governance The youth is not overawed by Jawaharlal Nehru or Indira Gandhi whom they consider, at best, historical figures.

History of UTTER PRADESH after Independence. After independence, the state was renamed Uttar Pradesh ("northern province") by its first chief minister, Govind Ballabh Pant. Pant was well acquainted with and close to Jawaharlal Nehru (the first Prime Minister of free India) and was also popular in the Congress Party . He established such a good reputation in Lucknow that Nehru called him to Delhi , the capital and seat of Central Government of the country, to make him Home Minister of India in 27 December 1954. He was succeeded by Dr. Sampoornanand, a classicist Sanskrit scholar. Following a political crisis in Uttar Pradesh, initiated by Kamlapati Tripathi and C.B.Gupta, Sampurnanand was asked to resign as CM in 1960 and sent to Rajasthan as the Governor of Rajasthan , paving the way for Gupta and Tripathi to become Chief Ministers. Sucheta Kripalani served as India's first woman chief minister from October 1963 until March 1967, when a two-month long strike by state employees caused her to step down. Aft ...
