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!
Seventeenth September today is Marathwada Liberation Day.
Youth of the Nation might not have heard of such a term in their lives!
Maharashtra today’s one of the premier states was not a part of India!
Marathwada Liberation Day, celebrated in Maharashtra
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.
August Eighteenth indeed a day poignant and sad! Unfortunate
The day that we lost one of the greatest sons of our Holy Mother
Bharath Matha. Yes memorial day of a leader par excellent
A path that he chose what he thought was ideal for our freedom!
A great son of Bharath-from Bengal-became Nethaji
A staunch patriot and for long disciple of Gandhiji
Both of course were for freedom from the foreign yoke
But differed in their approach to attain –way to make!
Indian nationalist and patriot he was
His defiant patriotism made him pass
A hero- to rid India of British rule
In world war two joined Japan-Germany pool!
Young Subhash held his radical thoughts not to Gandhi’s way
Was President of the Congress but felt uneasy on the way
Formed his Indian National Army to attain his goal
Goal of Indian independence by force as a whole!!
Tragedy he was snatched by the cruel hand of death
At age of forty eight tragic accident – in stealth
Gone-could not enjoy freedom of his motherland
His dream and goal with his own political stand!
Many strongly believed the story about his death
Yet there were many who doubted its veracity
Fact as of now is we do not have Nethaji with us
We remember him fondly on this day of his death.
Netaji’s Indian National Army.
