After a glorious run of 53 years, the iconic Hindustan Machine Tools (HMT) Limited will cease to be the Timekeepers of our Nation. The Indian love affair with time began soon after that historic stroke of midnight and Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, the First Prime Minister of India, inaugurated the now-vintage hand-wound wrist watches. Today, as India's original desh ki dhadhkan loses its race against time, these, and several other HMT watches, have turned into collector's items. This old print ad, where HMT proudly proclaims its status as the Timekeepers of the Nation, is reminiscent of a newly-Independent India striving to make its own way in the world economy with the help of its people. With names like Janta, Priya, Sona, Rajat, Apoorva, HMT was proud of its Indian-ness and had no qualms about it. Time was once HMT time and the entire nation acknowledged and loved it. Let's take a short peak at its history through this lovely, but short documentary:

The Vidhana Soudha (Kannada: ವಿಧಾನ ಸೌಧ), located in Bengaluru (Bangalore), is the seat of the state legislature of Karnataka. It is an imposing building, constructed in a style sometimes described as Mysore Neo-Dravidian, and incorporates elements of Indo-Saracenic and Dravidian styles. The construction was completed in 1956. Kengal Hanumanthaiah is credited with the conception and construction of the Vidhana Soudha, .The foundation stone was laid by the then Prime Minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru, on 13 July 1951.However, it was Hanumanthaiah who was instrumental in the redesign and speedy construction of Vidhana Soudha. He visited Europe, Russia, United States and other places and got the idea of building the Vidhana Soudha by incorporating various designs from the buildings he had seen. It was completed in 1956. He took a lot of interest and effort in building this marvelous granite building. Design and construction The Vidhana Soudha has four floors above and one floor below ground ...

In 15 August, 1947 our nation is independent from the Kingdom of British Empire and India overlap with the Partition. In this Day, our nation is divided into two parts India and Pakistan along with their Religious lines by the Indian British Empire. While the violence there is large numbers of people are died. To commemorate those peoples or freedom fighters, we are celebrating this day by hoisting flag ceremony, Parades and Culture events are the activities to celebrating this Independence Day. Our First Prime Minister of India is Dr. Jawaharlal Nehru and now in 2014, the Prime Minister of India is Narender modi. Other might have forgotten but never can I, the flag of our nation furl very high. Happy Independence Day to all.
Independence Day, observed annually on 15 August, is a national holiday in India commemorating the nation's independence from Kingdom of Great Britain [Commonly known as United Kingdom] on 15 August 1947. India attained independence following an independence movement noted for largely nonviolent resistance and civil disobedience led by the Indian National Congress (INC).[1] Independence coincided with the partition of India, in which the British Indian Empire was divided along religious lines into the Dominions of India and Pakistan; the partition was accompanied by violent riots and mass casualties, and the displacement of nearly 15 million people due to sectarian violence. On 15 August 1947, Jawaharlal Nehru, who had become the First Prime Minister of India that day, raised the Indian National Flag above the Lahore Gate of the Red Fort in Delhi. On each subsequent Independence Day, the Prime Minister has raised the flag and given a speech.[2] The holiday is observed throughout India with flag-hoisting c ...

Five myths about Nehru By RAMACHANDRA GUHA IN this, the week of the 40th Death Anniversary of Jawaharlal Nehru, let us consider some of the myths that have gathered around his name and his legacy: Myth 1: Nehru promoted a `dynasty' This myth draws support from the fact that Nehru's daughter and grandson also served as Prime Minister, that his grand daughter-in-law has sought that post too, and, most recently, that her son, Nehru's great-grandson, has joined politics as the heir-apparent of the Congress party. In truth, Nehru had nothing to do with the "dynasty". He had no idea, nor desire, that his daughter would become Prime Minister of India. It was Mrs. Indira Gandhi who converted the Indian National Congress into a family business. She first brought in her son Sanjay and, after his death, his brother Rajiv. In each case, it was made clear that the son would succeed Mrs. Gandhi as head of Congress and head of Government. Thus, the "Nehru-Gandhi dynasty" should properly be known as the "(Indira) Gandhi' ...
We're thinking about dinner already, and our taste buds are craving tandoori chicken. But where did tandoori come from? According to Wikipedia: "Tandoori chicken originated in the restaurant Moti Mahal Delux of Kundan Lal Gujaral, in Delhi, India. The tandoori chicken at Moti Mahal so impressed the First Prime Minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru, that he made it a regular at official banquets. Visiting dignitaries who enjoyed tandoori chicken included American Presidents Richard Nixon and John F. Kennedy, Sovietleaders Nikolai Bulganin and Nikita Khrushchev, the King of Nepal, and the Shah of Iran. The fame of tandoori chicken led to many derivatives, such as chicken tikka (and eventually the Indian dish popularized in Britain, chickentikka masala), commonly found in menus in Indian restaurants all over the world." So there you go!
The Constitution of India-2 Features The Constitution of India Draws extensively from Western legal traditions in its enunciation of the principles of liberal democracy. It is distinguished from many Western constitutions, however, in its elaboration of principles reflecting aspirations to end the inequities of traditional social relations and enhance the social welfare of the population. According to constitutional scholar Granville Austin, probably no other nation's constitution "has provided so much impetus toward changing and rebuilding society for the common good." Since its enactment, the constitution has fostered a steady concentration of power in the hands of the Central Government - especially the Office of the Prime Minister. This centralization has occurred in the face of the increasing assertiveness of an array of ethnic and caste groups across Indian society. Increasingly, the government has responded to the resulting tensions by resorting to the formidable array of authoritarian powers provi ...

“Failure comes only when we forget our ideals and objectives and principles.” .(Pandit) Jawaharlal Nehru (November 14, 1889 - May 27, 1964) – aka Panditji – an Indian politician and statesman, a leader in the India’s Independence Movement, and the First Prime Minister of Independent India. He was the father of Indira Gandhi and the maternal grandfather of Rajiv Gandhi, who were to later serve as the third and sixth Prime Ministers of India, respectively. _ JAWAHARLAL NEHRU Jawaharlal Nehru was born on November 14, 1889 to (Advocate) Motilal Nehru and Swaroop Rani in a Kashmiri Pandit family in Allahabad (Uttar Pradesh). He was educated in India and Britain. In England, he attended the independent boy's school, Harrow and Trinity College, Cambridge. Nehru married 16-year-old Kamala Kaul on February 7, 1916, and had their only child – Indira Priyadarshini – in the first year of their marriage. The son of moderate nationalist leader and Congressman Motilal Nehru, Jawaharlal Nehru became a leade ...
Prime Ministers from the first Jawaharlal Nehru, 1947 to the fifteenth Narendra Damodardas Modi, sworn in May 26, 2014 Some coincidences with these two 1947 and 2014 are toe identical calendars and today the 27th May is Jawaharlal's Death Anniversary and just about end of Congress Rule in India and it's the first Official Day of Narendra Modi. Let's take a moment of silence and pray for Nehru Chacha on his Death Anniversary. 1947 was Sardar Patel's Dream and the most deserving Prime Minister of India, and if that happened there wouldn't have been any Gandhis' and he backed out due to Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi. And now this time with BJP's clean victory, Narendra Modi, is fulfilling unfinished dreams of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, and the obstructing factor today being LK Advani, who still at this age had a dream if becoming Prime Minister and Modi took a Bold and Clever Move by not letting that happen. Kashmir was an issue and still is, let's hope it gets resolved, but I doubt it's going to happen by bilat ...
It's now end of the road for our beloved Amby. What has been a long and historical journey from the Morris Motors plant at Cowley to Hindustan Motors at Calcutta. A journey punctuated by many breakdowns, few attempts at modernization and and aura of association with the Sarkari Raj that will stay. And this change comes so close to the 50th Death Anniversary or Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru and swearing in of our new Prime Minister. Is this just a coincidence or a sign of changing times?
An Open Letter to Narendara Modi from Gopalkrishna Gandi. Beautifully written! Prime Minister-designate, This comes with my hearty felicitations. I mean and say that in utter sincerity, which is not very easy for me to summon, because I am not one of those who wanted to see you reach the high office that you have reached. You know better than anyone else, that while many millions are ecstatic that you will become Prime Minister, many more millions may, in fact, be disturbed, greatly disturbed by it. Until recently I did not believe those who said you were headed there. But, there you are, seated at the desk at which Jawaharlal Nehru sat, Lal Bahadur Shastri did, and, after a historic struggle against Indira Gandhi’s Emergency, another Gujarati, Morarji Desai did, as did later, your own political mentor, Atal Bihari Vajpayee. Those who did not want you there have to accept the fact that you are there. Despite all my huge misgivings about your deserving that rare privilege, I respect someone coming from s ...
Shri Rajiv Gandhi At 41, Rajiv Gandhi was the youngest Prime Minister of India, perhaps one of the youngest elected heads of Government in the world. His mother, Indira Gandhi, was eight years older when she first became Prime Minister in 1966. His illustrious grandfather, Jawaharlal Nehru, was 58 when he started long innings of 17 years as free India’s First Prime Minister. Besides being the harbinger of a generational change in the country, Mr. Gandhi received the biggest mandate in the nation’s history. In the elections to the Lok Sabha, which he ordered as soon as the mourning for his slain mother was over, his party, the Congress, got a much higher proportion of the popular vote than in the preceding seven General Elections and captured a record 401 seats out of 508. Such an impressive start as the leader of 700 millions Indians would have been remarkable under any circumstance. What makes it even more so, indeed unique, is that Mr. Gandhi was a late and reluctant entrant into politics even thoug ...

I Am Hindu By Accident --- Jawaharlal Nehru SHAME SHAME SHAME On 14th November each year, we celebrate Mr. Jawaharlal Nehru’s birthday. We think (as we are taught in school) he was a simple and cheerful leader, a person who had a childlike nature, a great politician. But what is the unknown side of our First Prime Minister? An Addict or an Entertainer or a Hindu merely by accident (in his own words)? * Nehru gave birth to the problem of Kashmir & China.* Nehru had illegal relationships.* Nehru hated ‘Vande Mataram’.* Nehru was ready with a sword to oppose Subhash Chandra Bose! Pandit (?) Jawaharlal Nehru Chacha Nehru… Smoking with Edwina Mountbatten. ..And Nehru’s Birthday is Childrens’ day!The First Prime Minister of Bharat, Jawaharlal Nehru smoking with Lady Mountbatten!

[These seemingly never ending incidents of slapping Arvind Kejriwal, remind me of a tale. Our First Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, was travelling in an open car during the first Kumbh Mela after the independence. An old woman walked in front of the car. As the car stopped she pulled Mr. Nehru out of the car and slapped him hard. Mr. Nehru was still perhaps counting the stars when she said "This is your independence? I couldn't make my ends meet during the Raj and my situation has not improved at all!" That master statesman replied, "Madam, you just slapped the Prime Minister of India because you did not earn enough today, did you ever, dare doing the same to the Viceroy during the Raj? Is this independence, not enough?" The fact of the matter is we slap a person we can, not a person we should. A man angry on his boss would slap his wife, the wife would slap the child, the child shall kick the dog, the dog shall chase the cat and so on and so forth. But this cycle of violence has never done anyone, any ...
I have attended swearing in ceremony of Chief Justice of India today at Rashtrapathi Bhawan. It was at the same place where Jawaharlal Nehru was sworn in as the First Prime Minister of India. Rajaji as the last Governor General and then Babu Rajendra Prasad as first President on 26th Jan 1950. It is straight under the dome of Rashtrapathi Bhawan.

In this episode of the History Today Podcast, we speak to Gyanesh Kudaisya about the final years of Jawaharlal Nehru, India's First Prime Minister, who died in May 1964.
And if you ask me who is India's greatest Prime Minister, I would definitely say it is Dr Manmohan Singhji (even greater than Jawaharlal Nehru). Now that your term comes to an end it seems to be an end of an era. The gracious man leaves the 7 Race Course Road. Its sad to see how Gandhis' used you!! But nevertheless for me you remain the wisest man and a man who led the most raucous politicians!! Good Bye Oh wise man!!
From Jawaharlal Nehru to Manmohan Singh, here is the list of Indian Prime Ministers from 1947. Jawaharlal Nehru (1947-1964) Nehru is the First Prime Minister of Independent India. He also holds the record for continuously being in the office for the longest period (Aug 15, 1947 to May 27, 1964) about 17 years. Gulzari Lal Nanda A (1964-1964) Gandhian to the core, was interim Prime Minister on two occasions after the sudden demise of Pt. Nehru (from may 27, 1964 to June 9, 1964), for 14 days, and again after the sudden demise of Lal Bahadur Shastri (from January 11 to 24, 1966), again for a period of 14 days. Lal Bahadur Shastri (1965-1966) Though he came to power under the shadow cast of the ever-famous Pt. Nehru, he quickly won the hearts of all Indians, especially after routing Pakistan in the 1965 war. Indian still reverbrates with his slogan 'Jai Jawan ! Jai Kisan !'. He held office for 582 days, from June 9, 1964 to January 11, 1966. Indira Gandhi (1966-1984) The Iron Lady of India held office from J ...
Who was the First Prime Minister of India ? (a) Mrs. Indira Gandhi (b) Jawaharlal Nehru (c) Dr. Rajendra Prasad (d) Mahatma Gandhi
Today India is on the threshold of General Elections. I post an article I had written many years ago. Nehru was epitome of inclusivity and the original real secular politician.: Appreciating JN In childhood, I was lead by teachers and peers to venerate Jawaharlal Nehru. Then, on growing up, I found lot of criticism heaped on Nehru by people around me. They abused him squarely. Adolescence appreciates such fiery criticisms and for some time, I went along with these opposite views as well. Now, when I can discern and choose my views with a bit more equilibrated mind-set, and poise, I think it was Nehru who was the need of the newly Independent India; may be even more than Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi, or, Atal Behari Vajpayee. Reasoning is simple, but to begin, as a Prime Minister what kind of India had he inherited, India that historically had never been, politically, a single nation. To list the sufferings of the newborn India: 1] Illiteracy 2] Superbly superstitious [irrational] India 3] Casteist India 4 ...
But sleep eluded me that night. The 1962 debacle of our army kept haunting me. Jawaharlal Nehru's words that China had stabbed India in the back by launching a dastardly attack crisscrossed my mind many a time. Now, four decades after the bitter war, I was their guest. The Chinese always kept emphasizing that they were not the aggressors. Chou En-lai, the then Chinese Prime Minister, and other Chinese decision-makers had taken Nehru's off-the-cuff statement made in Madras on October 12, 1962, that he had "ordered the Indian Army to throw the Chinese out" very seriously. The PLA in Tibet, where they were entrenched since 1950, mobilized to launch a pre-emptive attack on NEFA. In an academic discussion with my Chinese hosts, I asked them: "Didn't you fire the first shot?" The Chinese hosts replied that after Nehru's provocative statement amounting to a declaration of war, a self-respecting nation like China could not have waited to be attacked. I recall that the Americans were very sympathetic to the Indian ...
''If Muslim League had 100 Gandhis and 200 Abulkalam Azads, there would have been no Pakistan. However, if the Congress had only one Jinnah, India would not have been divided.'' - Vijaya Lakshmi Pandit, the sister of Jawaharlal Nehru, the First Prime Minister of India, wrote in her book

Report blaming Nehru for India's defeat in 1962 war made public A large section of the still classified Henderson Brooks Report which indicts Former Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru and top government officials for India's failure in the 1962-Sino Indian war has been made public.
1947 – Jawaharlal Nehru, one of the founding fathers of Independent India, becomes the country’s First Prime Minister. His appointment starts a long period of political dominance of the Congress party and the country’s most powerful dynasty, the Gandhi-Nehru family. 1952 – Nehru leads Congress to a clear victory in the country’s first ever General Election and retains the Prime Ministership, which he held until his death in 1964.
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 ...

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

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.

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 .. ...
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.

Brand-name of governance The youth is not overawed by Jawaharlal Nehru or Indira Gandhi whom they consider, at best, historical figures. Rahul is yet to connect with this large segment of the electorate. He failed to ensure Congress victories in several state assembly elections. The Nehru-Gandhi brand will, once again, be on test in 2014. The political survival of the dynasty will depend on the outcome of the Lok Sabha election ~ DEBAKI NANDAN MANDAL Without strong leadership, supported by effective policies, trust is easily eroded. Good governance means putting the needs of people at the centre of policy-making. ~ Angel Gurria, OECD Secretary-General The data furnished in response to RTI queries about the ‘formal’ relationship between the National Advisory Council (NAC) and the government since 2010 is quite revealing.

Nehru and Women - REMINISCENCES OF THE NEHRU AGE M.O. Mathai Indian Prime Minister Jawahar Lal Nehru's private secretary. Mathai was an intelligent and competent man from South India, a Catholic by religion like many South Indians, and quite courageous to have written the two well-known books alleged experiences of Nehru and his times, which became controversial.: (1) Reminiscences of the Nehru Age, and, (2) My Days with Nehru, where he has, for the first time, divulged many secrets of the high and the mighty of the Nehru years. He has also written the book SHE. M.O. Mathai (1909-1981) was assistant to India's First Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru. Mathai worked with the United States Army in India before becoming an assistant to Nehru in 1946. He resigned in 1959 following Communist allegations of misuse of power. One of Mathai's letters (UO No D/S13170 of 2/12/1954) digged out by the Delhi-based non-profit trust Mission Netaji had become controversial in 2006.[1] The letter indicated that the ashes o . ...
Six mistakes of gandhi. There is no doubt that Mahatma Gandhi was the biggest figure in the Indian Independence Movement and we all owe him a gigantic debt. But he also may have made a few mistakes and here’s looking at some of them… 1. Chasing Netaji away: Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose and the Mahatma disagreed on the use of force against the British. Despite that Bose was elected President of the Indian National Congress in 1938. That led to a confrontation and ultimately differences with Jawaharlal Nehru too. In the 1939 elections, Netaji was ill and the Mahatma used this opportunity to push his candidate Pattabhi Sitaramayya. However Netaji came on a stretcher and defeated the Mahatma’s candidate. The writing was on the wall. The leadership of the nation had passed from the Mahatma to Netaji. However instead of accepting it gracefully, the Mahatma camp played intense politics and forced Netaji to resign from the Congress. 2. Installing Nehru as Prime Minister: In terms of charisma, Netaji was proba ...
PLEASE SEE THE TRUTH : - Modi Speaks a lie about Sardar Patel’s Funeral In an interview to Dainik Bhaskar in Ahmadabad Narendra Modi (26th Oct 2013) criticized country’s first PM Jawaharlal Nehru for not attending the funeral procession of the then Home Minister of India, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. One knows Modi has been resorting to the motivated propaganda about so many things to build up his image. Many of his claims of development of Gujarat are also false. One knows that it was Sardar Patel who said that it is due to the ‘Hate spread by RSS, Modi’s parent organization, that we had to lose the Father of our Nation’. Now this statement of his about Nehru is again a blatant lie. Morarji Desai in his Autobiography, Vol 1, Page 271, para 2, writes that the President of India Babu Rajendra Prasad and the Prime Minister of India Pundit Jawaharlal Nehru attended the funeral of Sardar Patel, which was held in Mumbai. Such false hoods have been the basis on which Modi is building his image amongst a ...

Modi blames Congress for Partition and changing India's geography Narendra ModiNarendra ModiA day after the Prime Minister alleged that BJP is changing India's history and geography, a combative Narendra Modi on Sunday hit back accusing Congress of altering the country's geography by allowing partition and history by neglecting our heroes and eulogising only the Nehru-Gandhi family. Modi made a scathing attack on Prime Minister Manmohan Singh after inaugurating a hospital here which is run primarily by the minority community. "Mr Prime Minister, I am aware that it is not in your hands what you should say or not say. But the country wants to know who changed the geography of India. The village in which you were born was a part of Hindustan. Today it is not. Who changed the geography. Who broke this country into pieces?" Modi said. Singh was born on September 26, 1932 in Gah, a remote village, now in Pakistan's Punjab province. Modi charged that it is the Congress which committed the "sin" of dividing India ...
The UPA government will be giving a final push for minority appeasement before the 2014 General Elections with the Cabinet on Thursday approving a proposal to spend additional Rs. 100 crore for scholarships to minority children. This would be complimented with a new campaign to reach out to the minority community and tell them about the difference the UPA government policies have made in their lives. Minority, especially Muslims, is considered a key vote-bank in the next General Elections as they constitute about 13.4% of the population as per 2001 census. Although the latest religion wise population data has not been released by, most political pundits believe that Muslims would opt for tactical voting to keep out BJP’s Prime Minister candidate Narendra Modi. Zoya Hassan, a professor of Political Science in Jawaharlal Nehru University in an recent article said: “The Muslim vote bank thesis has gained a fresh lease of life due to the Narendra Modi phenomenon. In the 2014 polls, Muslims will put out a ...
Manmohan Singh - Qualification The best thing happened to India was that some sensible people elected Dr. Manmohan Singh as the Finance Minister in 1991. Now Sonia Gandhi selected him as the Prime Minister of our Great (full of corruption) Nation. At times people settled abroad and others living in India talk about how he is running the government, and lots of time I hear that he is not a strong leader, he is a puppet of Sonia etc. Guys PLEASE support him for 1 term in the government, we need him more then he needs the post of PM. He will change the nation if we give him 100% support for 5 years. Is it too much to ask? We have supported people like Devi Lal, V P Singh (made the country bank corrupt) and many others, those who had no idea or experience to run a nation of 1billion people. We have corruption in most govt. departments, no infrastructure, no basic roads etc. etc. So people please have faith in this man and give him 110% biased free SUPPORT and if you think he is not qualified person then read ...
In today's war of words between Congress and BJP we need to understand the truth of how Sardar was treated by Nehru and his cronies. Records show that the Sardar who was the then Deputy Prime Mnister and Home Minister was insulted, humiliated and disgraced by the then Prime Minister, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, during a Cabinet meeting. “You are a complete communalist and I’ll never be a party to your suggestions and proposals,” Nehru shouted at Patel during a crucial Cabinet meeting to discuss the liberation of Hyderabad by the Army from the tyranny of the Razakkars, the then Nizam’s private army. “A shocked Sardar Patel collected his papers from the table and slowly walked out of the Cabinet room. That was the last time Patel attended a Cabinet meeting. He also stopped speaking to Nehru since then,” writes MKK Nair, a 1947 batch IAS officer, in his memoirs “With No Ill Feeling to Anybody”. Nair had close ties with both Sardar and VP Menon, his Man Friday. When Sardar died in Bombay on 15th ...

Do you know only Indian Mohan Das karam Chand Gandhi so called our father of nation crowned as “Kaiser- i- Hind” by Queen Victoria. Kaiser –i-Hind means the faithful subject of the queen under the British crown. It was earned by our father of nation by degrading the dignity of our Nation i.e. by doing GOOLAMI means slavery, flattery etc. Do you know the second C.M of West Bengal Dr. Bidhan Chandra Roy awarded with Bharat Ratna during 1961? It was due to he was very obedient to the then P.M of India J.L Nehru. After partition of country, in view of the problems arising out of boundary demarcation and enclaves, both the countries felt it necessary to reach an agreement. The then Prime Minister of India Mr. Jawaharlal Nehru and Mr. Feroze Khan Noon, Prime Minister of Pakistan arrived at an agreement in 1958 which is known as NEHRU-NOON Agreement. This agreement provided among other things for "Exchange of enclaves on the basis of enclaves for enclaves without any consideration of territorial loss or g ...
The Somnath temple of Gujarat was rebuilt at the initiative of the then Home Minister Sardar Patel and by the donations of Hindus. This had prompted *** Hole Jawaharlal Nehru, the then Prime Minister to construct a full-fledged Mosque, which was severely damaged during 1934 riots and laid abandoned since then, at the site, but he was blocked by the iron man Sardar Patel.

Jawaharlal Nehru 1947–1964 Jeeps scam In the next year of Independent India, first scam took place. VK Krishna Menon, who was high commissioner in Britain made a deal with foreign company for army jeeps by crossing the regulations. He had made the deal of Rs. 80,00,000 and this was found out in 1955 when he was in the ministry of Jawaharlal Nehru. Cycles scam Cycles imports scam took place in 1951. SA Venkataraman who was the industrial minister was bribed and he gave the permission to a foreign country for the sale of their company cycles.

Since the beginning of Muzaffarnagar  conflagration, I have been wondering  what soured the Jat- Muslim unity of yore. The Jats were dependent on Muslims for farm labour, carpenters, and iron-smiths. Thanks to Dr Manmohan Singh’s  economic reforms, many Muslims have headed towns for better wages and the Jats have been shuttling between the village and the town to retain the hold on land and continue to eat,drink and make merry. The riot has displaced over 40,000 Muslims . They are living in camps, at homes of relatives, in private farms of well-wishers, at police stations. Reminding old-timers of Partition mayhem.  “Why did you — the Congress party and Jawaharlal Nehru — stop us from going away in 1947? We have been reduced to strangers in our own land,” Shamshad Chaudhary asked Rahul Gandhi  accompanying the Prime Minister on the whirlwind tour of the affected areas in Muzaffarnagar. The victims in no mood to return ,need  roof over their head and hammer and sickle  to start all over ...

The True Face of Mr. Jawaharlal Nehru..The man who ruled our Independent nation (INDIA) for 15 years. Today is Mr. Rahul Gandhi's Birthday.PAST IS PAST, WE CAN NOT CHANGE THAT BUT.PRESENT IS IN OUR HAND N CAN DETERMINE OUR FUTURE WITH OUR ACTIONS. MUST READ. It is a truism that society treats the failures in its ranks rather poorly. They lose respect, are looked down upon, and because they have failed to live up to expectations, are often denied a second chance. In India, there is one resounding exception to this rule, Jawaharlal Nehru. Any objective assessment of the man would reveal that his failures were many, real and substantial. His claimed successes, on the other hand, owed much to the fact that as the First Prime Minister of Independent India, he was judged against the benchmark of what the British had left India in. The British was here as our colonial overlords, and they had little interest in India’s development. Therefore, a comparison with their record is setting the bar very low, closer to ...
Thrill of the chaste: The truth about Gandhi’s sex life With religious chastity under scrutiny, a new book throws light on Gandhi’s practice of sleeping next to naked girls. In fact, he was sex-mad, writes biographer Jad Adams No sex please: Gandhi, above, ‘tested’ himself by sleeping with naked grand-nieces Manu, left, and Abha, right It was no secret that Mohandas Gandhi had an unusual sex life. He spoke constantly of sex and gave detailed, often provocative, instructions to his followers as to how to they might best observe chastity. And his views were not always popular; “abnormal and unnatural” was how the First Prime Minister of Independent India, Jawaharlal Nehru, described Gandhi’s advice to newlyweds to stay celibate for the sake of their souls. But was there something more complex than a pious plea for chastity at play in Gandhi’s beliefs, preachings and even his unusual personal practices (which included, alongside his famed chastity, sleeping naked next to nubile, naked women t ...
Neglecting National Interest: From Nehru to Sonia-G – N.S. Rajaram "At the time of independence Mahatma Gandhi forced Sardar Patel to withdraw to anoint Jawaharlal Nehru as Prime Minister at great cost to the nation. It has now culminated in Sonia Gandhi and her associates simultaneously appeasing anti-national forces while looting the nation, with Manmohan Singh an impotent bystander." - Dr. N.S. Rajaram Gandhi’s impact on the nation’s future B.R. Nanda, in his authorized (by Congress) biography of Mahatma Gandhi writes: “It was inevitable that Gandhi's role as a political leader should loom larger in the public imagination, but the mainsprings of his life lay in religion not politics. ... His deepest strivings were spiritual.” The claim is absurd. It is as a politician that Gandhi has left his mark on history; unlike say Sri Aurobindo and Swami Vivekananda no one today reads his ‘spiritual’ writings. His interpretation of the Bhagavad Gita is a perversity. And the Gandhi family today is n ...
One peculiar thing I noticed about my family is that my great grandfather, Shri Bindeshwari Babu's name is not mentioned in the book, My Experiment's with Truth (Gandhiji's Autobiography) but his nephew's name (Janakdharibabu) has been put. One more thing, India's First Prime Minister's name (Jawaharlal Nehru) is also not there but his father's name (Pandit Motilal Nehru) did appeared in it. Muzaffarpur was the centre of politics at the time of non-cooperative movement led by Mahatma Gandhi with national leaders like Dr. Rajendra Prasad (Rajendrababu), Brajkishorebabu and Anugrahababu leading from the front. All were vakils by profession and used to take down the ryots' statements during the Champaran movement. This gives the impression of Bihar which was a richly-diversified and culturous place and still it is. It gave India national leaders and good politicians. Jai Bharat.Jai Bihar!
Periyar Erode Venkata Ramasamy (17.9.1879 - 24.12.1973) was a social revolutionary who influenced the politics of the South Indian state of Tamil Nadu for half a century. Periyar, literally meaning a great man was an honorific prefix bestowed on him by the people of Tamil Nadu. He was hailed by a UNESCO Award as ‘the prophet of the new age, the Socrates of south east Asia, father of the social reform movement and arch enemy of ignorance, superstitions, meaningless customs and base manners.’ He was the second son of Venkata (Naicker) and Chinna Thayammal. They were a very affluent family; his father was a popular, rich merchant known for his religious philanthropy. Leaders like Motilal Nehru (father of Jawaharlal Nehru, Independent India’s First Prime Minister) and Mahatma Gandhi have stayed at Periyar’s ancestral home in Erode. His school education stopped at the age of ten, and he subsequently entered his father’s trade. Even as a small boy, he was naughty enough to question the contradictions ...
TO BE STRONG HAVE A MIND OF A CHILD. Imagine doing business with a child, this is an imagination of a childs mind with an adult intelligence. If you want to sell something to a child it will simply ask the price and quality and pay the price if it likes, whereas if you do business with an adult he asks both and tries to dodge you for payment for sometime, so that he can rotate the money somewhere else for interest and pay you later than the stipulated time. A child will simply agree and pay up because its simple but, an adult makes a lot of calculations to pay seeing risky benefits and processing the brain with unwanted things. If an adult is adviced of not doing unwanted things he or she says it’s the way of the world. A child will just follow its mind. The same way Nations with the childs mind prosper and become stronger. Our country had Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, Sardar Patel and many others. Infact Morarji Desai the former Prime Minister of India had even said that if Pakistan meddled with In ...
VERY INTERESTING READING, AN EYE OPENER! ONLY DR. AMBEDKAR HAD THE GUTS TO SAY THIS IN PARLIAMENT. Dr. B. R. Ambedkar’s ideological fights with Mr. Gandhi are well known; not many, however, would know the kind of issues Dr. Ambedkar had with Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru, India’s First Prime Minister. Nehru family baiters do not know that the modernist Pt. Nehru had turned so conservative After India’s freedom – (Or was he a conservative throughout his life?) that Dr. Ambedkar could no more remain his co-traveler, and had to resign from his Cabinet on September 27, 1951. Excerpts of his resignation letter, taken from ‘Ambedkar’s Writings’ - Volume 14: Part Two, pages 1317-1327. "The House I am sure knows, unofficially if not officially, that I have ceased to be a member of the Cabinet. I tendered my resignation on Thursday, the 27th September to the Prime Minister and asked him to relieve me immediately. The Prime Minister was good enough to accept the same on the very next day. ……Our Rules of Pr ...
Something which every Indian must read/know: When George Washington became the first President of the United States of America, there was no law mandating the President’s term to be restricted to 2 terms. He could have been the President till his death. But he thought that was not the right thing to do and resigned to his farms after his second term. That set the tone for all American politicians to follow. This is what founding fathers should mean for a nation. Although there are lot of controversies in this regard till date, the end result what matters is what we can see today. Now let’s look at our First Prime Minister. On April 29, 1946 when the Pradesh Congress committee members had to nominate the Congress President, who would eventually become the Prime Minister of the Nation, 12 out of 15 nominated Sardar Patel and not one of them nominated Jawaharlal Nehru. And for frivolous reasons, Gandhi chose Nehru against the wishes of the members of Congress. The first President of India Dr. Rajendra Pr ...
Pak Tea House - Jinnah v. Nehru – who was more democratic? Posted: 13 Jan 2013 05:50 AM PST It is fashionable amongst Pakistanis to point out how “autocratic” Jinnah was as opposed to Jawaharlal Nehru and somehow it was this autocratic behavior on the part of the father of the nation that is the reason why Pakistan is a dysfunctional democracy at best. The truth of course is that Jinnah’s conduct as His Majesty’s Governor General of Pakistan was far more democratic than that of Nehru as his Majesty’s Prime Minister of India and here is why: 1. Section 93/Article 356: The power to dismiss provincial assemblies. This was omitted by Jinnah in GOIA 1935′s Pakistani adaptation but was retained by Nehru. This is significant. Jinnah did not send provincial assemblies packing. His so called dismissal of Khan Sahib’s ministry was necessitated by the fact that Khan sb had lost his majority in the assembly. It was in fact an inhouse change. Compare this to Nehru’s treatment of Shaikh Abdullah (w .. ...
Following India's independence, Shastri was appointed Parliamentary Secretary in his home state, Uttar Pradesh. He became the Minister of Police and Transport under Govind Ballabh Pant's Chief Ministership on 15 Aug 1947 following Rafi Ahmed Kidwai's departure to become minister at centre. As the Transport Minister, he was the first to appoint women conductors. As the minister in charge of the Police Department, he ordered that police use jets of water instead of lathis to disperse unruly crowds.[14] His tenure as police minister ( As Home Minister was called prior to 1950) saw successful curbing of communal riots in 1947, mass migration and resettlement of refugees and break-in and putting of idols in disputed Babri Masjid - Ram Janmabhoomi complex on 22 Dec 1949.[citation needed] [edit]Cabinet minister In 1951, Shastri was made the General Secretary of the All-India Congress Committee with Jawaharlal Nehru as the Prime Minister.

* Interesting things * - Pt Jawaharlal Nehru received Bharat Ratna in 1955 - Indira Gandhi received Bharat Ratna in 1971 - Rajiv Gandhi received in 1991 (just after death) Surprising thing to know is all these were Prime Minister of India in that Year whenever they were awarded with Bharat Ratna purskar - Its clear, Nehru family can create hype about self by giving awards to self from our TaxPayer's money. It took 40 years after death of Sardar Patel to get Bharat Ratna (year 1991) - even Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan who was not a citizen of India received the award 4 years before Sardar Patel (year 1987) In this country the own Indian citizen is not valued that is proved all the time by Congress.

As delivered, 04 September, 2012. By ST WHO IS AN INDIAN?: A NATION OF Shri Wajahat Habibullah, Dr Sangliana, Ladies and Gentlemen, Friends, Thank you for your warm welcome despite my delayed arrival from the airport. It is a privilege to follow in the distinguished footsteps of such illustrious lecturers as Justice Ahmadi and the Dalai Lama. It gives me great pleasure to be with you this morning to share a few thoughts with you about who is an Indian and the challenges of diversity in our nation of minorities. At midnight on August 15th, 1947, Independent India was born as its First Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, proclaimed “a tryst with destiny — a moment which comes but rarely in history, when we pass from the old to the new, when an age ends and when the soul of a nation, long suppressed, finds utterance”. With those words he launched India on a remarkable experiment in governance. Remarkable because it was happening at all. “India,” Winston Churchill once barked, “is merely a geographi ...
How many of us know that Bollywood icon Amitabh Bachchan is the product of 'behind the scene' affair that happened between his mom, Teji Bachchan, and the then Prime Minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru? Teji was a very attractive woman and a frequent visitor to Jawaharlal's residence. Her husband (Haribans Rai Bachchan, Amitabh's supposed father) was a homosexual and was not interested in women. To make things further spicy, Jawaharlal had been widowed for a long time. The same 'high' morals were seen in Nehru's earlier generation too. Sheikh Abdullah was an illegitimate child of Jawaharlal's father, Motilal Nehru. His mother was Motilal's maid servant (imported from Kashmir to Allahabad). This was the reason why Jawaharlal always treated him very softly, despite his anti-India stance. The 'secular' traditions of the Nehru family percolated down to Jawaharlal's daughter, Indira, who became pregnant from a white guy at 16 in UK. Shocked at this, Mahatma Gandhi forced her to go through secret abortion, and ...

Our freedom fighters who came to power after Independence were stalwarts who upheld high values. Jawaharlal Nehru was devoted to laying the foundation of a modern democracy in the country. He would get very angry if anyone tried to touch his feet. He considered that a show of servility. He maintained that he was the first "public servant" of the nation. He respected the majesty of Parliament and unfailingly attended all its sessions. Politics was a profession of sacrifice and service. There used to be no hoardings or advertisements to eulogise the leader. Ostentation was shunned. Dynastic rule did not exist. Sycophancy had not surfaced in public life. Nehru may have nursed political ambition for his daughter, whom he made president of the party in his later years, but she was not given any role in governance. More than any Prime Minister, Lal Bahadur Shastri epitomised political morality. With Indira Gandhi coming to power, the grammar of polity changed. Relentless pursuit of power for dubious goals with ...
Tribal 'wife' of Nehru is outcast, driven to poverty Panchet, Purulia, March 28: Fifteen-year-old Budhni Mejhan was delighted when she was asked to garland Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru to welcome him during his visit on December 6, 1959. She was a casual labourer of the Damodar Valley Corporation and Pandit Nehru was coming to inaugurate the newly-built Panchet Dam. DVC officers chose this santhal girl and another DVC labourer Rabon Majhi as part of the reception team. On that day, Budhni dressed in all santhal finery, garlanded Nehru and etched a red tika on his forehead. The late Prime Minister asked her to accompany him to the inauguration site and made her press the button that officially opened the gates of the dam. Unfortunately, when she returned home to her village Karbona that evening, Budhni realised that the gates had slammed shut on her fate. The santhal tribe, governed by its own laws, told Budhni that she had garlanded Nehru and, therefore, had "married" him. The heads called a meeting the next d ...
Can Those Who Have Discarded ‘Bharat Mata’ Change India?: : Pratap Simha Signs of such a possibility appeared on Thursday itself. Prominent Team Anna member Prashant Bhushan, and Anupam Kher—who has of late emerged as an extremely staunch Anna-supporter—gave out these signs which were broadcast on various TV channels. While Prashant Bhushan reasoned that since pressure tactics haven’t worked, we have no other option except active politics, Anupam Kher justified Team Anna’s newfound political ambition thus: even leaders like Jawaharlal Nehru, Maulana Azad, and Sardar Patel were activists like us before they became political leaders. News channels dished out discussion shows with pre-emptive titles like Will a Fourth Front Emerge? And then, quick on the back of such speculations came forth the official announcement of forming a new “party.” What goal does Arvind Kejriwal hope to accomplish after making such an announcement? Anna Hazare is certainly naive, he has genuine concern for the natio ...
In 1947-48, the Khan of Kalat reportedly "tried" to accede to the dominion of India. But his accession papers were returned by Jawaharlal Nehru, the Prime Minister of India obviously not wanting to extend India's dominion areas that were separated by a hostile state, Pakistan, so as to be able to concentrate on the "local" development work. [15][16][17] As a result, Kalat joined Pakistan on the agreement that defence, currency, foreign office and finance will be controlled by the federal govt but that the rest the province will control by itself. However, after death of Muhammad Ali Jinnah, formation of one unit changed this situation and Kalat along with other princely states of Baluchistan were merged into Pakistan as elsewhere in the South Asian sub continent.
Some guy on the radio was ripping on Winston Churchill claiming that he was responsible for the partitioning of India which led to decades of violence between India and Pakistan... First off Churchill wasn't Prime Minister during the partitioning, Clement Attlee was responsible for all decolonization policies following WWII. Second, Britain had nothing to do with the partitioning, it was an action taken by Jawaharlal Nehru's Indian National Congress following the Muslim League's request for separation. Learn your history man!! Dr. Parente, I have you to thank for all of this knowledge!

every Indian shd read .The great secret behind Indian Constitution. An extraordinary story of romance, history, and divided loyalties—set against the backdrop of one of the most dramatic events of the twentieth century The stroke of midnight on August 15, 1947, liberated 400 million people from the British Empire. With the loss of India, its greatest colony, Britain ceased to be a superpower, and its king ceased to sign himself Rex Imperator. This defining moment of world history had been brought about by a handful of people. Among them were Jawaharlal Nehru, the fiery Indian Prime Minister; Mohammed Ali Jinnah, the leader of the new Islamic Republic of Pakistan; Mohandas Gandhi, the mystical figure who enthralled a nation; and Louis and Edwina Mountbatten, the glamorous but unlikely couple who had been dispatched to get Britain out of India. Within hours of the midnight chimes, their dreams of freedom and democracy would turn to chaos, bloodshed, and war. Behind the scenes, a secret personal drama wa ...
Rajmata Sonia Gandhi wants ally and DMK chief Old Monk M Karunanidhi to be present when the Congress nominee for the Presidential Polls presents his/her nomination papers on June 16 to Returning Officer in Parliament House. Rajmata Sonia Gandhi apparently considers Old Monk Karunanidhi only next to Jyoti Basu and Jawaharlal Nehru as her mentors. It may be recalled that Old Monk Karunanidhi in 2004 openly declared that Sonia Gandhi was not a foreigner and she stood the best chance to become the Prime Minister. And that is one of the reasons why Sonia respects each other. A feeling Old Monk Karuna reciprocates.
