It is a matter of great happiness for all NRIs, particularly Hindus, that the famous adage from Vedic literature Satya Mev Jayate (Truth shall always prevail, once again, prevailed in New York and New Jersey Courts, on the Birthday of Mahatma Gandhi! In this connection, it should be noted that the INOC had filed these two lawsuits on the alleged grounds that Kataria, Sahani et al had defamed President of Indian National Congress, Sonia Gandhi, by bringing out a full page advertisements in The New York Times, dated October 6, 2007. Some extracts from that advertisement are as follows: “UN’s declaration of Mahatma Gandhi’s birthday on October 2nd as the International Non-Violence Day is commendable. However, instead of a true Gandhian delivering his message of peace and non-violence, Sonia Gandhi who is not a representative of Gandhian values is chosen. “Sonia Maino Gandhi is NOT related to Mahatma Gandhi. She is attempting to misappropriate his name for political mileage and international legitimac ...

Mahatma Gandhi wished to dissolve Indian National Congress after Independence - and now it is the wish of Indian People's Mandate - JANADESH 2014
At these days of the largest democratic festival I was reading about the history of Indian Politics. I found some fantastic parties made by the patriotic leaders. One of the Examples : All India Forward Bloc is a party that was made by Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose . But in today's politics it is hardly presenting its existence . Some parties also hides the truth from the people . Example : Indian National Congress as a party whose existence was erased when the day Indira Gandhi's Indian National Congress (I) came in existence . This is the team, in which Mrs Sonia Gandhi is in the lead, now virtually tied in their government 's survival . People still thinks that, this congress was made by the Mahatma Gandhi. Another party which is hiding the truth. Bahujan Samaj Party is a party of who says we are still moving on with the views shared by Dr. B.R. Ambedkar. But it does not tell the people that BR Ambedkar had also created a political party called the Republican Party of India. RPI is trying to making their ...
How ‘secular’ is Congress? A leading Hindu member of the Indian National Congress was embarrassed with her daughter’s wish to marry a person from a different community. This eminent personality was the closest to Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, who is known the world over as Mahatma Gandhi. Indira Priyadarshini the daughter of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru was married to Feroze Khan finally after Mahatma Gandhi lent his name ‘Gandhi’ to Feroze Khan, who from thereafter was called as Feroze Gandhi and not Feroze Khan, and accordingly the daughter of Jawaharlal Nehru was called as Indira Gandhi instead of Indira Feroze Khan, thus avoiding a major embarrassment to Nehru family. This manifests how un-secular was Nehru family. Had the Congress and its leader been ‘secular’ as they proclaim, then why was this arrangement of lending the ‘Gandhi’ name to erase ‘Khan’ was done 74 years ago? By this arrangement another great advantage the Nehru family gained was the ‘legacy’ of Mahatma Gandhi on whi ...

It was Netaji who initiated establishment of contact between Moulana Abul Kalam Azad and Matlib Mazumdar for gearing up nationalist Muslims against a growing Muslim League in the region.

The Salt March, also mainly known as the Salt Satyagraha, began with the Dandi March on 12 March 1930, and was an important part of the Indian Independence Movement. It was a direct action campaign of tax resistance and nonviolent protest against the British salt monopoly in colonial India, and triggered the wider Civil Disobedience Movement. This was the most significant organised challenge to British authority since the Non-cooperation movement of 1920–22, and directly followed the Purna Swaraj declaration of independence by the Indian National Congress on 26 January 1930. Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (commonly called Mahatma Gandhi) led the Dandi March from his base, Sabarmati Ashram near Ahmedabad, to the coastal village of Dandi, located at a small town called Navsari, in the state of Gujarat. As he continued on this 24-day, 240-mile (390 km) march to produce salt without paying the tax, growing numbers of Indians joined him along the way. When Gandhi broke the salt laws at 6:30 am on 5 April 1930, i ...

Women make half the population in the country and the Indian National Congress believes that women have to be equal partners in our democratic and economic institutions for us to achieve our true potential as a nation. It was Mahatma Gandhi who said, “When woman, whom we all call abala becomes sabala, all those who are helpless will become powerful”. The Congress Party imbibing this very principle, has stood for the rights of women and their empowerment. Several strides have been made to improve the status of women since independence under Congress governments. Smt Indira Gandhi emerged as an icon for women’s empowerment, not only for women in India, but for women across the world. It was the vision of our late Prime Minister Shri Rajiv Gandhi, that greater political representation of women at every level would lead to more women oriented development and also allow for sensitisation towards women’s issues. It was under his leadership that the 73rd and 74th amendments to the Constitution, which gav ...
1919, June 15: V.T. Sambanthan was born in Sungai Siput, Perak. His father, M.S. Veerasamy Thevar, who came to British Malaya in 1896, was a pioneer rubber planter in Sungai Siput, and owned several rubber plantations. Unknown: Sambanthan received his early education at Clifford High School in Kuala Kangsar, Perak. Sambanthan studied economics at Annamalai University in Madurai, India. As a student at the university during the turmoil of India's battle for independence, he was greatly influenced by Mahatma Gandhi's philosophy of non-violence and even took part in some of the protests, led by the Quit India Movement, against the British. Not surprisingly, Sambanthan became involved with the Youth Wing of the Indian National Congress. The ethnicity and sectionalism in Indian society troubled him and this was to influence his later advocacy of racial tolerance, harmony, and cooperation in Malayan politics. 1946 (age 27): Stranded in India as a result of World War II, Sambanthan returned to British Malaya aft ...

Who among the following suggested the winding up of the Indian National Congress after India attained independence? a. C. Rajagopalachari b. Achrya Kripalani c. Mahatma Gandhi d. Jayaprakash Narain Previous Answer: 2 and 3 are correct
Remembering Rajaji on his 135th Birth Anniversary-10th December 2013 Rajagopalachari opposed linguistic states Vanam Jwala Narasimha Rao Chakravarthi Rajagopalachari, more popular as Rajaji, was a very well-known lawyer, writer, administrator, politician and statesman of India. He was the one and only Indian to be appointed as Governor General of India. As the staunch follower of Mahatma Gandhi since 1919, he became General-Secretary of the Indian National Congress in 1921. Rajaji, thus, got acquainted with leaders like Jawaharlal Nehru, Vallabhbhai Patel, Maulana Azad, Rajendra Prasad and others. Once regarded as Gandhi’s successor and was described by him as the "keeper of my conscience", Rajaji shared close kinship with Jawaharlal Nehru and Sardar Patel despite differences. Though Rajaji was one of the top Congress leaders for about half a century, he could not become All India Congress Committee president even once. He was however a member of its Working Committee many times. Rajaji was born on Dece ...

Our Mission: the Empowerment of Each and Every Indian No Indian must be left behind. The task of building our nation will remain incomplete even if a single citzen is voiceless. It is for this reason that the Indian National Congress has armed the citizens of India with rights such as the Right to Information, Right to Education, Right to Employment under the Mahatma Gandhi NREGA and the Right to Food.
man Kancha Ilaiah Narendra Modi has a problem with his party's intellectual base even now. In their private discussions he is seen as a man of muscle power but not mind power. Why did Narendra M o d i choose Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel as his icon, leaving aside his own party icons, Syama Prasad Mookerjee, Atal Behari Vajpajee or the icons of base organisation Rastriya Swayamsevak Sangh -Savarkar, Golwalkar or Hedgewar? If Gujarati-ness is the reason, both Mahatma Gandhi and Patel have that in common and both come from the same Congress background. Why not Gandhi then? Even Morarji Desai hails from Gujarat and he was the first Prime Minister from that state. Why not Morarji, then? Mr Modi is a shudraOBC (other backward class). He is the first shudra-OBC to be a national-level, assertive political leader and to have positioned himself as a candidate for the Prime Ministership of India. Moreover, he has emerged from a Hindu communal political party when even the Indian National Congress did not allow anybody, ...
Did you know? In the early 20th century, a nationwide struggle for independence gained momentum. Indian National Congress, under the leadership of Bal Gangadhar Tilak, Mahatma Gandhi, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel and Jawaharlal Nehru engaged in mass campaigns of civil disobedience with millions of protesters joining in inspired by Gandhi’s’ mantra of ‘ahimsa’ - non-violence. Tilak was one of the first and strongest advocates of "Swaraj" (self-rule) and a strong radical in Indian perception. His famous quote, "Swaraj is my birthright, and I shall have it!" is well-remembered in India even today. Muhammad Ali Jinnah continued his constitutional struggle for the rights of minorities in India. Revolutionaries like Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose and Bhagat Singh preached armed revolution to achieve independence. Poets such as Rabindranath Tagore and Kazi Nazrul Islam used literature, poetry and speech as a tool for political wakefulness. Feminists such as Sarojini Naidu and Begum Rokeya championed the cause o ...
The foundation of INTUC on 3rd May 1947-just 3 months before India attained independence. Acharya JB Kripalani, who was then President of the Indian National Congress inaugurated the Founding conference of INTUC which was presided over by Sardar Vallabhai Patel. Among the distinguished leaders who attended the opening session were Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, Shankaraaro Deo, Jagjivan Ram, BG Kher, OP Mehtab, Aruna Asaf Ali, Ram Manohar Lohia etc. and prominent trade unionists. Under the guidance of Mahatma Gandhi, the founding fathers in their wisdom preferred to let the INTUC have an independent identity with its own constitution, while at the same time functioning as an arm of the Congress.

Bapu While at a high school in Rajkot, Gujrat, a terminal report rated him as "good at English, fair in Arithmetic and weak in Geography; conduct very good, bad handwriting." Later, his attempts at establishing a law practice in Bombay failed, because he was too shy to speak up in court. After witnessing racism, prejudice and injustice against Indians in South Africa, Mahatma Gandhi began to question his place in society and his people's standing in the British Empire. It was also in South Africa that he developed the idea of Satyagraha (insistence on truth) and Ahinsa (non-violence). Finally, it was there that he took a lifetime view that "Indianness" transcended religion and caste. In 1915, he came back to India for good, and in 1920, he took up leadership of Congress. One of the Gandhi Ji’s major strategies, first in South Africa and then in India, was uniting Muslims and Hindus to work together in opposition to British imperialism. On January 26, 1930, the Indian National Congress (INA) declared in ...

Independence India wrested its independence from Britain in 1947 after a long freedom struggle led largely by the Indian National Congress and its visionary leaders, especially, Mahatma Gandhi. From 1920, the freedom movement leaders began highly popular mass campaign against the British Raj using largely peaceful methods. India’s acquisition of independence resulted in the formation of two countries, India and Pakistan. Following the controversial partition of India, rioting broke out, leaving some 500,000 dead. Also, this period saw one of the largest mass migrations ever recorded in modern history, with a total of 12 million Hindus, Sikhs and Muslims moving between the newly created nations of India and Pakistan.

Q1. At the Second Round Table Conference, the Indian National Congress was represented by. Ans: Mahatma Gandhi
Secularism in India "I do not expect India of my dreams to develop one religion, i.e., to be wholly Hindu or wholly Christian or wholly Mussalman, but I want it to be wholly tolerant, with its religions working side by side with one another.'' So said Mahatma Gandhi. India has been declared a secular state by its written constitution and it is every Indians duty to stand by and believe in this declaration. And yet recent political and social events have questioned this declaration. Is India a secular country only on paper or does secularism actually exist in India; or is in the form of pseudo- secularism, a term the BJP and its allies seem to repeatedly harp on. During the freedom struggle, secularism was emerging as the most dominant principle. The leaders of the Indian National Congress; Gandhi, Maulana Abul Kalam Azad, Nehru and others were deeply committed to the ideal of secularism, though each expressed it in very different manners. Secularism became the mantra of the Indian nation, a nation exhaust ...
People who criticized Bhagat Singh were Mahatma Gandhi and his Indian National Congress
Jawaharlal Nehru was born on November 14, 1889 in Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh. Born with the proverbial silver spoon, Jawaharlal had a western upbringing and studied in the famous Harrow School and Trinity College in England. In 1916, at the age of 27, Jawaharlal married Kamala Kaul and the following year saw the birth of their only child Indira Priyadarshini. After an initial brush with legal practice, Jawaharlal Nehru joined the Indian National Congress and started his political career under the tutelage of father Motilal Nehru. After the successful Champaran and Kheda Satyagrahas, Mahatma Gandhi emerged as the undisputed leader of the masses and Nehru soon became one of his trusted aides. Under Gandhi's influence Nehru shunned his western lifestyle and traveled extensively to garner resistance against the British. Through the 1920s Jawaharlal Nehru earned accolades for his passionate anti-British stance and was elected Congress Party president in the 1929 Lahore session. Nehru played a prominent role in t ...
THE OFFICIAL LANGUAGE PROBLEM OF INDIA AN OPEN LETTER TO ALL TRUE CONGRESSMEN FROM KANYAKUMARI TO KASHMIR. The Indian National Congress is the only All India Party which fought for the freedom of our country. It is also the only one party which has sacrificed thousands and thousands of workers for our freedom struggle. It is the only party which has completed 127 years since its inception. All those congressmen were selfless leaders, some of them are seniors to Mahatma Gandhi, others are juniors to Mahatma Gandhi. All those leaders are honest, straight forward, sincere and devoted congressmen. Indian National Congress was their blood and life. We have duly honoured most of our leaders of the past but we have miserably failed to honour some of them. One such great man was from Tamilnad. He loved the Congress Party from his college days, when he was studying in the Madras Law College, he was beaten by the police of the British Raj for having participated in the Satyagraha of the Congress Movement. He partic ...
Indira Gandhi Indira Gandhi, thrice Prime Minister of India. The first serious challenge to Congress hegemony came in 1967 when a new coalition, under the banner of the Samyukt Vidhayak Dal, won control over several states in the Hindi belt. Indira Gandhi (not related to Mahatma Gandhi), the daughter of Nehru, and Congress president, was then challenged by the majority of the party leadership. The conflict led to a split, and Indira launched a separate INC. Initially this party was known as Congress (R), but it soon came to be generally known as the "New Congress". The official party became the Indian National Congress (Organisation) (INC(O)) led by Kamaraj. It was informally called the "Old Congress". As Indira Gandhi had control over the national state machinery, her faction was seen as the official INC by the Election Commission of India, although her party was a break-away group.

During the National conference of Indian National Congress at Kakinada, Pingali Venkayya suggested that India should have a National Flag of its own and Mahatma Gandhi liked this proposal. He suggested that Venkayya could come up with a design. During the National conference at Vijayawada, Venkayya proposed a tricolour with an Ashoka Chakra at the middle[citation needed]. Gandhi liked the flag[citation needed], and the design was later adopted as the National Flag of India[citation needed]. Pingali Venkayya After researching into 30 kinds of flags from all over the world, Pingali conceived the design of a flag which became the forbearer of the Indian National Flag[citation needed]. Though all credit goes to Pingali for having conceived the National Flag in its present form, its antecedents can be traced back to the Vande Mataram movement. For a brief history of the origins of the Indian flag one has to go back to August 1, 1906. It was at Parsee Bagan Square (Green Park) in Calcutta where the first nation ...
Subhash Chandra Bose in his uniform as Chief of the INA Subhash Chandra Bose was born 23 January 1897 in Cuttack, Orissa. Along with the likes of Bhagat Singh and Chandrashekhar Azad he is one of the most admired revolutionary in India whose legend has lived on even after his presumed death. He is a major figure in India’s struggle for freedom from the British rule. Bose, who once was the president of the Indian National Congress, had great ideological conflict with none other Mahatma Gandhi. He believed that the non-violence would never be enough to secure India’s freedom. To attain this goal he advocated violent resistance. It was due to this difference in opinion that he resigned from the Congress and became part of what was called the “hot faction” (as opposed to the “soft faction” that followed the Mahatma’s principles). In order to realize his dream of the Azad Hind (Free India) Bose organized the Azad Hind Fauz or the Indian National Army (INA) with monetary, military and political he ...

Mahatma Gandhi first met Jawaharlal Nehru at the annual meeting of the Indian National Congress in the year 1916 at Lucknow.
Jawaharlal Nehru:- Entering Politics In 1919, while traveling on a train, Nehru overheard British Brigadier-General Reginald Dyer gloating over the Jallianwala Bagh massacre. The massacre, also known as the Massacre of Amritsar, was an incident in which 379 people were killed and at least 1,200 wounded when the British military stationed there continuously fired for ten minutes on a crowd of unarmed Indians. Upon hearing Dyer’s words, Nehru vowed to fight the British. The incident changed the course of his life. This period in Indian history was marked by a wave of nationalist activity and governmental repression. Nehru joined the Indian National Congress, one of India's two major political parties. Nehru was deeply influenced by the party's leader, Mahatma Gandhi. It was Gandhi's insistence on action to bring about change and greater autonomy from the British that sparked Nehru's interest the most.

What I am glad abt today is. Not a single one of you posted a greeting to Jawaharlal Nehru on his birthday. Glad to know we all realize wat a curse he has been to India. He had blackmailed Mahatma Gandhi to make him the Prime Minister, Even though congress voted overwhelming to make Sardar Vallabhai Patel the president of the Indian National Congress in 1947. Unfortunately Gandhi gave in fearing a civil war within the party, which might have led to the Britosh deciding to stay in a bit longer and we as a nation have suffered at the hands of one family looting the country to the bone. It's time that family lost its prominence in India and all their misdeeds are brought to justice and even stripping them of the Bharat Ratna's they awarded to them selves. May Nehru rot in *** for eternity.

Follow Gandhi's footsteps in London Mahatma Gandhi made five visits to London, spanning 43 years of his life; from young law student in 1888, to representative of the Indian National Congress in 1931. If you are going on a trip to London and want to follow in Gandhi's footsteps to gain an insight into his life, then take a look at these 10 places the great man visited. The Grand Hotel — 1888 On Gandhi's first night in London as a nervous 18-year-old law student, he stayed in the luxurious Victoria Hotel near Trafalgar square. Not only was this the first place he stayed in England, it was also where he met one of his dearest friends, Dr. Pranjivan Mehta, who shaped and nurtured much of Gandhi's early work and ideas. The hotel has now been renamed as The Grand, but is still the perfect place to stay for your visit to Gandhi's London. 16 Bridge Street — 1888 During his first few weeks in London, Gandhi struggled with the blandness of his vegetarian diet until he found 'Central', a vegetarian restaurant n ...
Indian National Congress roars : During its history of 126 years Indian National Congress has always taken the interest of nation as the first priority - before the interest of anything else. Mahatma Gandhi has taught us to dedicate ourselves to the service of the nation and its people at large. The question of winning elections through temporary meas ures with half truths are not in the dictionaries of Indian National Congress. Pandit Nehru said "If we commit mistakes, which is expected to occur while taking bold steps towards welfare of Indian populace, we will take lessons from our mistakes. But we will not compromise with our dedicated service to the nation." The nation has already witnessed the bankrupt policy of BJP - who survives on the politics of blackmail. In West Bengal there is a new equation where Trinamul Congress and CPM are on the same tune in attacking the bold economic policies of UPA II government. It is apparent that there is close coordination amongst both the parties - to benefit max ...

Its very ridiculious that we are fighting for that thing which should have never dominated in our life " THE CORRUPTION". What an absurd situation we are facing and living with. The country which is being freed by the sacrifices of the masses and with the leadership of Mahatma Gandhi, the same Indian National Congress party has led our country into devastation situation since the Independence. Isn't this strange that we are fighting not for any religion, caste, reservation or any illegitimate issues. We are fighting to make our country a CORRUPT FREE COUNRTY, and what the present goverment is doing in support. Neither day are interested nor they are bother at all for the anti-corruption law. Why this govt. which is being governed by the same person who bought liberalization way back in 90's has commited not to bring a concrete Lokpal Bill which will help prevent corruption at every level? Why the same person is completely dumb who is considered as the think-tank of India? Why the same INC has no other iss ...
The struggle for India's Independence began in 1857 with the Sepoy Mutiny in Meerut. Later, in the 20th century, the Indian National Congress and other political organizations, under the leadership of Mahatma Gandhi, launched a countrywide independence movement. Colonialpowers were transferred to India on August 15, 1947. The Constituent Assembly, to who power was to be transferred, met to celebrate India's independenceat 11pm on August 14, 1947. India gained its liberty and became a free country at midnight between August 14 and August 15, 1947. It was then that the free India's first Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru gave his famous "Tryst with Destiny" speech. People across India are reminded of the meaning of this event - that it marked the start of a new era of deliverance from the British Colonialism that took place in India for more than 200 years.
