Sculpture of Rani Lakshmi Bai, fighting his enemies with his adopted son at back.

indian Independence seventy second arrives soon
Journey to freedom was very long and arduous- like moon
Places and people historic sacrificed all over sure
Deserving praise and prayer on this day a week before pure!

The city of Jhansi-of Rani Lakshmi Bai in U P
A holy place to be worshipped along with  Rani-with pomp
Spark of Sepoy mutiny reached and turned into war aweful
Rani Lakshmi Bai saved her kingdom successfully-powerful!

Betrayers were ever and everywhere- shameless nearby
Rani captured Gwalior with the help of Marathas- but
In the course died during the battle of Gwalior bravely
Referred as  Joan of Arc by the British commanders wisely!

JOURNEY TO FREEDOM Part 13 22/6 Ranade Assassination day.

Freedom struggle of a great nation like our holy Motherland
Journey to Freedom of India that is Bharath, sacred land
Unique and distinct in ways several, sacrifices many
To the wonder of the world around-Gandhi’s leadership steady!

Though the way adopted was non violence, activists were there
Who believed in methods stronger than passive and be bold and firm
Resorted to hardcore violent shooting spree-justified ofcourse
We have Vanchinathans and Mahadev Nari Chapekers on course!

British Plague Commissioner Rand and his aid quite harsh in Pune
Unable to bear the humiliations heaped, decided to
Assassinate them –heroic Mahadeo Vinayak Ranade
On this day memorable twenty second June two hundred years ago
Heroic activists were arrested and hanged to death by
The British Government- paved the journey to Indian FREEDOM!

 

JOURNEY TO FREEDOM Part XII

Journey to Indian Freedom was challenging and exciting
Taking different forms and shapes in its long journey rewarding
People of all regions and religions, castes and creeds standing
United under the national leaders all-help extending!

One such that gave the British a temporary victory pure
But made them soon realize that they can’t any longer go sure
That was “REBELLION OF eighteen fifty seven on this day
A mutiny of Sepoys of the Company’s army in Meerut.

The rebellion known by many names-the Sepoy Mutiny,
The Indian Mutiny, the Great Rebellion, the Revolt
Of Eighteen Fifty Seven, the Indian Insurrection and
India’s First War of Independence-Let us salute them grand!

JOURNEY TO FREEDOM PART XI

In the wonderful journey to Indian Freedom
Men and women in lakhs participated with wisdom
Leaders and the led all were with one aim, one desire
And one business in life-Nation’s independence!

Social and political leader was Gokhale
Great leader of the Indian National Congress
Founder of the Servants of India Society
Born this day in six years past eighteen hundred and sixty!

“Indian Self Rule” and social reforms his campaign theme
Leader of the moderate group of the Congress fame
Served with all his might carrying people with him
Was not there to see the light of freedom in his life.

JOURNEY TO FREEDOM PART 9.(ANDAMAN)

Cellular Jail, Andaman and Nicobar Islands.

Journey to Indian freedom was long and arduous
Patriots in lakhs under the leadership of famous
Mahatmaji walked along with him earlier too
Till we reached the sacred goal in forty seven true!

The great British to whom the Father never had hatred
Jailed and tortured all those who raised the banner sacred
Against and put them behind the bars indiscriminate
In several parts -one was Andaman-Nicobar Islands.

Cellular jail put up after first War of Independence
Freedom fighters kept and tortured included great
Dutta, Dass. Savarkar brothers and several patriots
Whom we cannot forget today and salute with respect!

Savarkar and relative.

Democracy thrives on four pillars as we know
Legislature, Judiciary, Bureaucracy
And the fourth one called Fourth Estate the great Press-show
The importance of each in a free society!

UNESCO declared every third of May as
“PRESS FREEDOM DAY” and today have to think as
Responsible for freedom of expression- lo!
On the decline- thanks to all powerful POLITICS!

The first three can thrive and prosper if fourth is strong
Society to be well informed and responsible
To voice its opinion free and frank, sans fear
“Critical Minds for Critical Times: Media’s
Role in advancing peaceful, just and inclusive
Societies”.this year’s theme to make it vibrant!

JOURNEY TO FREEDOM Part VIII

Champaran


In the long and arduous journey to Freedom
Several landmark events and places of wisdom
Seen and became historical for the future
That are indeed quite great and of golden nature!

The British embarked on a brutal governance
Indians to suffer and rose in revolt with reverence
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi’s transformation
Into Mahatma began in confirmation!

Champaran is the sacred place- of Satyagraha
A mass movement in support of farmers facing
Poverty due to indigo plantation issue
Gandhi succeeded and the ban was lifted .

Dheeran Chinnamalai, Kongu Chieftain  born on 17/4/1756

Indian freedom did not fructify overnight
It was indeed a long drawn battle for decades tight
Hundreds of thousands sacrificed their life, wealth and all
Under great local and national leaders quite tall!

Local chieftains many, many worked in unison
Fought with the outsiders with all their might as bright sun
One such was Dheeran Chinnamalai Kongu chieftain
Born on this day in seventeen fifty six to maintain!

Born as Theerthagiri Manradiyar in the South
A Kongu chieftain rose up against The British East
India company and along with his army
Along with Mysore Tipu Sultan and made history.

Journey to freedom was hectic and arduous, long and strenuous
Anywhere in the world that indeed is the case quite continuous
Our holy and sacred Motherland- INDIA that is Bharath
Had to undergo the pains and sufferings under the great leaders!

God sent was the Father of our Nation Mahatma Gandhi tall
To guide, lead, suffer in a manner not witnessed in the world, gave call
For freedom struggle against the mighty British in non violent
Way that united the whole of India under leaders potent.

On this day, eighty seven years ago, Gandhiji broke the laws
Humiliating known as ‘salt laws’ imposed by the foreign pawns
Prohibiting nature giving salt through the sea without paying tax
People stood firm and a landmark struggle on the journey to freedom!

JOURNEY TO FREEDOM Part 2

Image result for Invasion images on India

Great Bharatha Kanda my holy and sacred Motherland
Land of beauty and plenty, the great Gift of God- helping hand
World’s attraction- India’s philosophy, and religion
Evils eyed the sacred land; was invaded in succession.

Ancient heaven- India from the prehistoric days
Subjected to invasions every now and then-the ways
Of the people to revolt and succeed in defeating great
Journey was long and arduous yet we proved that we can win!

Alexander and the Greeks, the Arab invasions Turkish
The Mamulk dynasty, the Khiljis, the Tuglaqs, the Sayyid
And Lodhi dynasties, the Bahamanis, the Mughals
The Portuguese, the British East India company, lo!
