March 23: Bhagat Singh’s Martyrdom Day

Bhagat Singh 1929.jpg

Path to Indian freedom was quite long, painful and tedious
Leaders and workers in thousands sacrificed  their all in their lives
Many were not there to see the Nation becoming independent
We enjoy freedom at their cost not repaying our debt of gratitude !

One of the many revolutionary workers fighting for freedom
Was Shaheed Bhagat Singh -executed this day twenty third March
In Nineteen Thirty One. Born in nineteen hundred and seven
Sacrificed his life before twenty five years of age!

Socialist revolutionary whose two acts of dramatic violence
Against the British in India and execution at age twenty three
Made him a folk hero of the Indian independence movement
One was fatally shooting down a twenty one year Police Officer.
In December Nineteen Twenty Eight- John Saunders, in Lahore.
Singh was convicted and hanged in  when he was just twenty three.

Shaheed Bhagat Singh became a popular folk hero after his death.
Jawaharlal Nehru wrote that Singh  became popular because
He vindicated the honour of Lala Lajpat Rai and  the nation.
Let us pay our respect to that great nationalist on this holy day.

What a travesty of fate- an Indian state under foreign yoke
Portuguese used to reign over the Indian state for long -their nose to poke!
Goa an Indian state, had to be liberated unfortunate it was.
Done on December Nineteenth, nineteen sixty one from four hundred and
Fifty years of Portuguese rule. Atrocious but funny!
What could not be cured had to be endured! Cure did come

Our great holy homeland that is India -Bharath- was fragmented
Beyond recognition and the united India that we enjoy
Today is the result of noble and hard work put in by stalwart
And patriots like Gandhiji, Patelji Nehruji and their colleagues!

Youth of the Nation  might  not have heard of such a term in their lives!

Marking the anniversary of Marathwada integration
With India when the Indian military, invaded State of Hyderabad,
Defeated he Nizam to merge Hyderabad into the  Indian Union
On Seventeenth September Nineteen Forty Eight,  staggering thirteen
Months after Indian independence.India gained independence
From British on Fifteenth  August After the partition princely states
Had the option to join either India or Pakistan
The ruler of Hyderabad Osman Ali Khan decided to be independent.
Appealed to the United Nations that his princely state,
Including Marathwada And Telangana regions, be granted statehood.
During the revolt Marathwada Saw major uprisings against the Razakars .
Swami Ramanand Tirth, Govindbhai Shroff, Vijayendra Kabra and
Ramanbhai Parikh and P H Patwardhan.
The Indian government appeared anxious to avoid a “Balkanization”
Of the new country and was determined to integrate Hyderabad into Indian Union.
Amidst the unrest the Indian government launched a military operation
Named Operation Polo which it termed a “police action”. The operation
Itself took five days, in which the Razakars were defeated
And Hyderabad was annexed.

Image result for image of the group of our soldiers slain in Pulwama recently in lying down posture

World thrives on the sacrifices of thousands of its sons and daughters
It is for the world to remember and follow their foot steps and serve!
Sacrifices for the family, society, nation and the world
In any form or mode- sacrifices sure deserve honor quite bold!

Eighteenth March is today National Supreme Sacrifice Day
To honor those who made tremendous sacrifices for the sake
And the good of others as well as those who sacrifice their lives
Every day for us.! The men and women in uniform who have lay
Down their lives protecting their country and communities. And those
Who stepped forward during times of crisis to rescue a stranger
Or a neighbor and gave the supreme sacrifice now and then.
These sacrifices don’t come in uniform  often remain unsung.

An assassin is sung today- with a temple for him and books published
As inhumanly planned by some at the  Center! The assassinated
Getting into oblivion- a paradox we see here in our
Holy Motherland India that is Bharath! Let us arrest the trend!
