happy children day In India, Children's day is celebrated on the 14th November every year. As a tribute Children's Day is celebrated on the first Prime Minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru's birthday. Lovingly called 'Chacha Nehru' which means Uncle Nehru by the kids, Jawaharlal Nehru gave emphasis to the significance of giving love and affection to children, who are the bright future of India. The main purpose of this day is to encourage the welfare of children all over the country. The first ever Children's day was celebrated in 1954. The idea of a universal Children's Day was suggested by Mr. V.K. Krishna Menon and it adopted by the United Nations General Assembly. At first it was celebrated universally in the month of October. After 1959, November 20th was chosen as Children's day as it marked the anniversary day when the Declaration of the Child Rights was adopted by the U.N. General Assembly. In 1989 the Convention on the Rights of the Child was also signed on the same date. However, in India, Pandit ...

Andy Taylor Study the history from an objective source. After Turkey's defeat in WW I (an ally of Germany), Palestine was mandated to Britain, one of the 'victors' against Germany. Mandate is nothing but a polite name for foreign occupation. The day before British left Palestine, David Ben Gurion, head of World Zionist Organization, unilaterally declared state of Israel on over 56% of Palestine on May 14, 1948. A great majority of UN members rejected the declaration. Israel was accepted as member by UN on May 11, 1949 on second ballot through bribes & coercions on member states. Krishna Menon, India's envoy at the UN objected to Israel's application for membership, saying that since Holocaust was carried out by Germans in Europe - Jewish homeland should have been establish on a fertile German state (Bavaria) as a punishment and not in mandated Palestine which had nothing to do with Nazi Germany.
When the Guru talks to u about the Truth there is no doubt that its the words that u hear; But the words disappear at once. —A.Krishna Menon
Krishna Menon was a disaster as Defence Minister. What is wrong in correcting mistakes ?

“they said to him, “Teacher, this woman has been caught in the act of adultery. Now in the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. So what do you say?” John8:4 The Non-Aligned Movement was never established as a formal organization. The name used initially was that of "Conference of Heads of State or Government of Non-Aligned Countries" which was first held in 1961. The term "Non-Alignment" itself was coined by an Indian UN diplomat V.K. Krishna Menon in 1953. The Founding Fathers of the Non-aligned movement were: Sukarno of Indonesia, Jawaharlal Nehru of India, Josip Broz Tito of Yugoslavia, Gamal Abdul Nasser of Egypt and Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana. In his speech in Colombo, Nehru laid out the five pillars to be used as a guide for Sino-Indian relations, which were first put forth by Chinese Premier Zhou Enlai who referred to them as Panchsheel (five restraints), these principles would later serve as the basis of the Non-Aligned Movement. The five principles were: Mutual respect for each other' .. ...

VK Krishna Menon, who was High Commissioner in Britain made a deal with foreign company for army jeeps by crossing the regulations.

this pic is from the time of 1962 china war. that time, this man, the Defence Minister was having his share of fun in Spain with a spanish and a japanese girl. these are the same girls. he was the Defence Minister under Nehru - Krishna Menon.
Narandra Modi was excellent in Aap ki Adalat yesterday. I specially liked his answer to the question about Remarks on 'Rape a Small Mistake'. He simply said that "Ishwar unhe aisi buddhi na de". Question about his marital status not raised, may be his instruction to avoid it. But as Jaitley stated it is an unwritten code in Indian polity not to raise personal life issues. If such issues raised, so many other issues would come up. Eg personal lives of Nehru, Indira, Krishna Menon etc. Even Mahatma Gandhi.
Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw's career was almost written off as a major general after he rebuffed Defence Minister V.K. Krishna Menon's attempt to rope him in a bid to isolate the then Indian Army Chief, General K.S. Thimayya, with whom the Defence Minister openly had differences...
.Nehru was to be sacked if he were to stand the ground in supporting Krishna Menon too. Dr Rajendra Prasad was to be PM
Ankit K Kotnala While Sam was the Chief of Army Staff, at an 'at Home' he attended in Rashtrapati Bhawan, as the guests came out into the Mogul Gardens he found himself walking beside Mr. V. K. Krishna Menon. Polite to a fault, he wished Mr. Menon the time of day and also enquired how the latter was progressing health wise. He then turned to Mrs. Manekshaw, who was also walking in line, and asked her: " Darling, you remember, Mr. Menon?" Mrs. Manekshaw, not quite as forgiving as her spouse, at least on this occasion, replied brusquely: "No, I don't.' (Quoted from Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw: Soldiering with Dignity by Lt. Gen Depinder Singh)
Yashwantrao Balwantrao Chavan (12 March 1913 – 25 November 1984) was the first Chief Minister of Maharashtra after the division of Bombay State and the fifth Deputy Prime Minister of India. He was a strong Congress leader, Co- operative leader, social activist and writer. He was popularly known as Leader of Common People. He advocated social democracy in his speeches and articles and was instrumental in establishing co- operatives in Maharashtra for the betterment of the farmers.

The article below is my understanding of Admiral DK Joshi and his resignation as the Naval Chief. I know him as a person of principles and ethics and the article contents also point to that direction. Read if the Idea of India and those who have lived by its code and sacrificed their career to sustain it interests you. Those who have followed the case will note the extent of media distortion of the facts and seriously wonder whether much of media is not unwittingly harming the national interest in chasing trp and sensationalism. I also maintain that nothing has happened with which the Indian Navy cannot or will not cope. For I, it continues to be world-class and will find a way out of its current low point. The article is under print. - AN ADMIRABLE ADMIRAL But will his unprecedented resignation shake the MoD out of its Rip Van Winkle stupor? *** A resignation is a grave act; never performed by a right minded man without forethought or with reserve.

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 ...
Congress is very peeved with Modi for claiming the legacy of Sardar Patel and honoring him by his proposed massive statue Project. In this context the following excerpt from a Khushwant Singh 90s interview about his days working as a PRO under Krishna Menon , India's High Commisioner in UK during our early years of independence is revealing " When Panditji came he (Krishna Menon) would see that I spent a lot of time with Panditji alone and he would brief me on what to say in his praise because the Indian Press was always gunning for him(KM). And you know I lost respect. I saw letters he wrote to Panditji describing people as PATELITE. I never realized that differences between Sardar Patel and Panditji had come to such a pass that you belonged to one person or the other. One of my seniors Sudhir Ghosh was fired simply because Krishna Menon wrote to Panditji that he was Patelite and by then External affairs had come to Panditji from Sardar Patel" So much about Congress's love for Sardar Patel today !
Mathai writes that the death of Feroze came as a relief toNehru and Indira. The death of Feroze in 1960before he could consolidate his own political forces, is itself a mystery. Ferozehad even planned to remarry. Those who try to keep tabs on our leaders inspite of all the suppressions and deliberate misinformation, are aware of the fact that the second son of Indira (Mrs. Feroze Khan) known as Sanjay Gandhi was not the son of Feroze. Sanjay was the son of another Moslem gentleman, Mohammad Yunus. Here, in passing, we might mention that the second son was originally named Sanjiv. It rhymed with Rajiv, the elder brother's name. It was changed to Sanjay when he was arrested by the British police in England and his passport impounded, for having stolen a car. Krishna Menon was then India's High Commissioner in London. He offered to issue another passport to the felon who changed his name to Sanjay. Incidentally, Sanjay's marriage with theSikh girl Menaka (for Indira Gandhi found the name of Lord Indra's cour ...
Our Indian Feudal Service-IFS (By Shekhar Gupta, Indian Express) Of course, they have a right to fleece a maid, break the law — and claim immunity. Indian diplomacy has a well-deserved reputation for conservative understatedness. You've rarely seen a professional Indian diplomat grandstanding or headline-hunting. Not even Mani Shankar Aiyar, when he enjoyed diplomatic immunity. Probably no one after Krishna Menon's days of acid filibustery more than half a century ago. Not for any "proper" Indian diplomat the arrogant, stupid swagger of the occasional Pakistani — if anybody can recall an Indian insult to rival the unspeakable Munir Akram (later Pakistan representative to the UN) dismissing Salman Khurshid as a rented Muslim, and India as the sick man of Asia, please do let me know and I will stand corrected. To my recollection, the funniest Indian diplomatic comment came from K. Natwar Singh. When asked if he was a hawk or a dove, he said, "I am running foreign policy, not a bird sanctuary."

Death Anniversary(06-10-2013) of Sri V. K. Krishna Menon,Indian nationalist, diplomat and statesman, described as the second most powerful man in India by Time magazine and others, after his ally and intimate friend, Jawaharlal Nehru Menon was an intensely controversial figure during his life, and has remained so even well after his death. Widely described as brilliant and arrogant, he was known for the sheer force of his personality, and for his eloquence and wit as an orator. In response to US Secretary of State John Foster Dulles' assertion that US weapons supplied to Pakistan were intended solely for defence against a Soviet invasion, Menon snapped that "the world has yet to see an American gun that can only shoot in one direction", and that "I am yet to come across a vegetarian tiger". In London, Menon responded to novelist Brigid Brophy's surprise at the quality of his English with the retort: "my English is better than yours. You merely picked it up: I learnt it."; when critiqued for the Rolls-Royc ...

Scams and Scandals during theCongress rule since Independence 1.

The Great Indian Novel is a satirical novel by Shashi Tharoor. It is a fictional work that takes the story of the Mahabharata, the epic of Hindu mythology, and recasts and resets it in the context of the Indian Independence Movement and the first three decades post-independence. Figures from Indian history are transformed into characters from mythology, and the mythical story of India is retold as a history of Indian independence and subsequent history, up through the 1980s. Some allegorical figures in the novel- Ved Vyas, the narrator, -Ganpati, the assumed interlocutor and scribe of the text, -Kanika, Krishna Menon, the Defence Minister during the China war, -Ganga Datta (Gangaji or the Mahaguru), Mahatma Gandhi, -Dhritarashtra, Jawaharlal Nehru, India's first prime minister, often termed a blind idealist, -Pandu the pale, Shubhash Chandra Bose, -Vidur Hastinapuri (Vidur Dharmaputra), Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, -Jayaprakash Drona, Jayaprakash Narayan, a former freedom fighter who opposed the rule of Indi ...
MYSTERY CALLED Sanjay Gandhi. Must Read. Today is the Death Anniversary of Sanjay Gandhi the Indian politician and a member of the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty. During his lifetime he was widely expected to succeed his mother as head of the Indian National Congress, but following his early death in a plane crash his older brother Rajiv became their mother's political heir, and succeeded her as Prime Minister of India after her death. SANJAY's widow Maneka Gandhi and son Varun Gandhi are also politicians from BJP. Here is an interesting write-up titled MYSTERY CALLED Sanjay Gandhi. Misusing her political powers, Indira Gandhi along with her colleagues protected Sanjay Gandhi who had committed a car theft. Sanjay Gandhi's name was actually SANJEEV GANDHI. He was arrested fora car theft in U.K. Since his passport had been seized, the then Indian Ambassador to U.K. Krishna Menon changed his name to 'SANJAY' and procured a new passport for him. Blackmailing his mother Indira Gandhi, SANJAY was running the Government! ...
If modern Indian cricket is to be compared to Indian history, Dhoni is Nehru & Sachin is Sardar Patel.. (Nehru represented India received trophies & cut ribbons while Patel did the hard work of unification & foundation of India. Nehru showed favoritism towards Krishna Menon & Indira. Nehru was involved in several controversies.)
Shri Ramesh Chennithala thinks that only Deputy Chief Ministership with Home portfolio will ensure him status in the Kerala Cabinet. He does not know that when V.K. Krishna Menon joined Nehru's cabinet as Minister without portfolio in 1956, he was seen as the most powerful minister in the Cabinet. A Rajya Sabha member, he was given the Defence portfolio only when he got elected to the Lok Sabha in 1957. It is a different matter that today even Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, not to mention Defence Minister A.K. Antony, is a Rajya Sabha member. Shri Chennithala will also do well to read Abul Kalam Azad's autobiography in which he mentions that it was Sardar Patel's insistence on holding the Home Ministry that allowed the Muslim League to capture the Finance portfolio in the interim government. So what happened? The Muslim League finance minister would not sanction money for Congress' ministers, including Patel's, pet schemes. That is precisely why Shri K.M. Mani has no problem in allowing Chennithala become ...
WANTED: A Parsi Prime Minister only. By M.Reza Beg With the total mess India is in, it’s but natural there’s a public outcry and pressing demand for a Parsi Prime Minister. (Marrey re, Su vaat karech madarch-d!!) With their well established, unquestionable reputation and credentials, only Parsis can clean the Augean stables in our country. Simple proof is in the purchase of a “Parsi owned” car or motorcycle. You’d buy it sight unseen because you KNOW the finicky bawaji has loved, cherished and nurtured his vehicle with a quality of care and affection not even shown to his wife. Put him in the PM’s chair and he’ll give the same treatment to the nation. Put a parsi in judge’s robes and you’re assured of justice. Instant justice if he has his way. Make a parsi the army chief and we’ll have a Sam Manekshaw all over again. Don’t have to worry about authenticity of birth certificates. God bless him.

4. Who among the following was first defense minister of India after independence? (A)Sardar Patel (B)Krishna Menon (C)Sardar Baldev Singh (D)Deep Narayan Singh
BJP is not talking against it as Modiji wants to be P.M. and so Modiji don't want to disappoint Muslim voters. Modiji is not honest. Look at his life story, at age 17 he left his parents and wife for his reasons and now he has been in Politics for many years and now he is C.M. for the 4th term and so he is very powerful and doing anything to become P.M. So nothing is wrong, but Indians never have understood the real side of Modiji. It is coming soon one day as someone from BJP will wake up and post his story with pictures as no one knows what he did for his sexual needs as he has no wife. How Indians can select a man with no wife or family to elect as a P.M. Does anyone remember Krishna Menon who had stop shipping bullets to the Battalion while China had invaded and Indian Battalion were all killed as they had no bullets.

SILLY CORNER! Karan Thapar asks, why a statue for Bal Takerey? My friend asks me, when we have a statue and 'marg' for the 1st scamster-Krishna Menon, by which Indian forces had a humiliating defeat with China, why not for Bal Thackerey, who made all Hindus feel proud???
Dear Citizens, After the Indian Express report where one of our esteemed editors decided to put the blame on the Army leadership by quoting selectively from the Henderson-Brooks/Bagat report, I thought it was worth telling a few TV channels where they could find the Op Lal Qila papers. So yesterday Headlines today decided to go big with the story. I think Zee News will also be following suit today. It's time this country knew the truth in no uncertain terms! General Ved Malik was pointedly asked last night who he held responsible for the 1962 debacle and he spoke straight to camera. I saw him conduct the Kargil War from close quarters and my respect for him more than doubled yesterday, just for having the guts to speak up without any 'ifs' and 'buts'. I think it's time we started asking for the statue of Krishna Menon to be removed from the edge of Sena Bhawan, and rename the road leading up to it with any one of the names of the 2,420 men who died in NEFA or any one of the casualties from Ladakh. The who ...
"All I want to do is change the name of the avenue in central New Delhi named after Krishna Menon"

Remembering a War that We Lost, -Wing Commander (retd) R V Parasnis You can scrap the army' "I remember many a time when our senior generals came to us, and wrote to the defence ministry saying that they wanted certain things... If we had had foresight, known exactly what would happen, we would have done something else... what India haslearnt from the Chinese invasion is that in the world of today there is no place for weak nations... We have been living in an unreal world of our own creation." -Jawaharlal Nehru, Rajya Sabha, 1963 Instead of "I", Nehru used the collective "we", a clear indication of his reluctance to own up his own mistakes as a man. "The fact of the matter is that Nehru felt a gnawing of conscience throughout this episode. He knew that the blame for the disaster was more his than that of his loyal friend [Defence Minister V K Krishna Menon]," says journalist and historianDurga Das. "The decision-making system during 1959-62 was starkly ad hoc and designed primarily to suit the personalit ...
why we lost 1962 indo-china war ? 1. A committee was made soon after the war to look into the reasons why we lost, ''handerson brooks-bhagat'' report was submitted to govt, despite of around 50 yrs passed this report is yet to be made public. 2.former army chief Gen. chaudhary forwarding the report clearly blamed the then Defence Minister V K Krishna Menon for the debacle. 3. he also said "poor military leadership and not equipment led to the debacle". 4. the report indirectly blames the then Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru for not taking the issue seriously, not using air force for war, for giving full leadership to a ailing lt gen. b m kaul 5. K m cariappa was constantly alarming a possible threat of an attack from china but was never attended 6. our airforce was much advanced and stronger than the chinese forces but was never used, it would have changed the course of 1962 war. Air Chief Marshal N A K Browne::"Yes, no doubts about that. If air power was used at that time, the outcome would have been t ...
20 th October marks the 50th anniversary of our Himalayan Blunder alias Sino-Indian War. The 4000 and odd km boundary we share with China is the longest we share with any country. Here are few strange similarities between 1962 and 2012:- Defence Minister was V.K.Krishna Menon then and now we have Shri. A.K.Antony. Both happens to be Malayalees. We have another Menon this time in chair of National Security Adviser. Few months before the war, a report of CAG was released citing our poor defense preparedness and this time a letter by former army general shri.V.K.Singh on our poor defense buildup got exposed. The then Government ruling for consecutive years was facing charges of corruption and was reeling under pressure. this time also things are not different. Many Chinese transgressions across Border were reported then. Then USA was caught up by Cuban missile crisis and couldn't interfere. This time they are engaged by poor economy and recession. Over 550 Chinese transgressions were reported during last cou ...

The Indian military set back against the Chinese attack in 1962 was the time for an honest heart-searching. Brig. Dalvi`s account of the Sino-Indian War is by far the most remarkable and authentic. Oct 20, 1959, Ladakh:Havaldar Karam Singh and his 20-strong troop, are doing their routine border patrolling amid a heavy snowfall. In an eyewink nine men in the patrol are dead after a hailstorm of bullets, and the rest, including Karam Singh are taken prisoners. Courtesy of the Chinese Army. What stuns the Havaldar is not so much the unexpected onslaught as where it occurred: 40 kilometres right on this side of the border . The Army Chi ef, General Thimmayya's worst fears about China stood confirmed. When he confronted the powers that be and requested an immediate modernisation of the Armed Forces, and special attention to Chinese designs, V.K. Krishna Menon, the Defence Minister, analysed the problem differently. In his view, General Thimmayya was a soldier of the Raj era who was alarmed easily. Pakistan, no ...
Amartya Sen in his book"The Argumentative Indian" refers to V K Krishna Menon's nine hour long marathon speech in the UN General Assembly, a record that remained unequalled anywhere to date. How I wish If we could have a transcript or recorded tape of that speech available?
