#OnThisDay, in 1951, the famous Somnath Temple in #Gujarat was restored to its former glory. In the words of the then President of India, Dr Rajendra Prasad, it proved that “the power of reconstruction is always greater than the power of destruction". 1/9

" We were a small people but we had the privilege of serving under a great leader, Gandhiji, and we learnt much from him and we held aloft the torch of India's freedom and not only held that aloft, we have held aloft also that things which Gandhiji always taught us,

that we must always pursue peaceful and good methods, that even a good objective does not entitle us to use bad methods. So we have held aloft this torch of freedom and the torch of peace.

And sometime or other, the time will time will come when this generation will hand over that torch to the younger generation which is preparing for it today. May you be worthy of India and worthy of carrying that torch aloft."~Jawaharlal Nehru.

As Gandhi was very close to British, everybody opined that
“Gandhi alone could have intervened effectively to save Bhagat Singh's life.
He did not, till the very last”.
Bhagath Singh was killed twice, First by Gandhi & Later by Nehruvian Communists.

Godse gave a detailed explanation for his act of assassination of Gandhi during his high-profile trail held at the Red Fort at Delhi. The statement however was kept away from public by the hegemony of the Indian National Congress.

A Glory That is No More

" Sir, may I associate with what you have said? It is customary in this House to pay some tribute to the eminent departed, to say some words of praise and condolence.

I am not quite sure in my own mind if it is exactly fitting for me or for any others of this House to say much on this occasion for I have a sense of utter shame both as an individual and as head of the government of India that

we should have failed to protect the greatest treasure we possessed. It is our failure in the past many months, to give protection to many an innocent man, woman and child.

காந்தி காய்ச்சலோ, வயிற்று வலியோ வந்து சாகவில்லை.மதவெறி அமைப்பால் படுகொலை செய்யப்பட்டார்.

அவரைக் கொன்றவனின் அதே சித்தாந்தத்தை வரித்துக் கொண்டு கொலைகாரர்களை 'தேசபக்தர்கள்' என்று சொல்லிக் கும்பிடுபவர்களுக்கு காந்தி என்கிற சொல்லை உச்சரிக்கக் கூட அருகதை இல்லை..

காந்தியை நினைவு கூர்வது கதர் அணிவதோ, ராட்டை சுற்றுவதோ, குப்பையே இல்லாத இடத்தில் குப்பை போடச் சொல்லி விட்டு டிப்டாப்பாக உடையணிந்து மீடியா வெளிச்சத்தின் முன்பு பொறுக்குவதைப் போல் நடிப்பதோ அல்ல.

காந்தியின் அடிப்படை மதிப்பீடுகள் அகிம்சை, மதநல்லிணக்கம், நுகர்வு..

வெறியற்ற எளிமையான வாழ்க்கை, மற்றமையை உருவாக்காத ஆன்மீகம்(ஏன் கடைசி காலத்தில் வர்ணாசிரமத்தையே காந்தி எதிர்த்தார்) ஆகியவையே ஆகும்.இவற்றை நம் மண்ணில் நீடிக்கச் செய்வதே காந்தியை நினைவு கூர்வதாகும்.

காந்தியின் சித்தாந்தத்திற்கு நேர் எதிர் நிலை கொண்டவை மதவெறி..

Sgt. Dua was responsible for apprehending Madan Lal who threw a bomb at #MahatmaGandhi on 20 Jan 48. Madan Lal was in possession of a grenade and Dua held onto him at the risk of his personal life. Kirti Chakras were called "Ashoka Chakra, Class II" prior to 1967. (3/3)

The Light Has Gone Out

" Friends and Comrades,

The light has gone out of our lives and there is darkness everywhere. I do not know what to tell you and how to say it. Our beloved leader, Bapu as we called him, the Father of the Nation, is no more.

Perhaps I am wrong to say that. Nevertheless, we will never see him again as we have seen him for these many years. We will not run to him for advice and seek solace from him, and that is a terrible blow, not to me only, but to millions and millions in this country.

And it is a little difficult to soften the blow by any other advice that I or anyone else can give you.

The light has gone out, I said, and yet I was wrong. For the light that shone in this country was no ordinary light.

Did Gandhi not saved Bhagat Singh?
- Gandhi tried his best to save Bhagat Singh.

Let's burst propaganda in detail !

[ THREAD 🧵 ]

1/n Image
You were brainwashed. Gandhi did try to save Bhagat Singh. But you were prejudice so much that you can not digest the truth.

Gandhi raised the question of Bhagat Singh on 19th March when they met to discuss the notification of the Pact at the Congress session in Karachi.

Gandhi told then Viceroy Irwin that if he postponed or retracted the execution, it would bring peace.

Irwin was shocked to see that how an apostle of non-violence is so earnest pleading for the cause of creed so opposed to him.

As we complete the 6th year of SBM-U on the 151st birth anniversary of #MahatmaGandhi, we reflected on activities that have made #SwachhBharat a Jan Andolan. Was delighted to participate in Inaugural Session chaired by Hon’bl MoS at National Webinar on #SwachhataKe6SaalBemisaal
We have travelled an exciting journey in achieving the #Swachhata parameters to pay a befitting tribute to Bapu, who during his life time, espoused wholeheartedly swachhata & never hesitated to pick up a broom to clean a dirty place or even a public toilet.
It is a great achievement in itself that every citizen of urban India has come together to make the dream of #SwachhBharat, envisioned by Hon’ble Prime Minister, a reality. Our streets, neighbourhoods, water bodies are cleaner; our cities & citizens healthier.

राष्ट्रपिता महात्मा गांधी जी की जयंती को आज संपूर्ण देश दुनिया में श्रद्धापूर्वक मनाया जा रहा है, उनको नमन करते हुए मैं उसके उत्तराखंड-प्रवास की अनुभूतियों को आपसे साझा कर रहा हूं।

#MahatmaGandhi ImageImageImage
हिमालय के इसी वैभव और आलोक ने गांधी जी को वर्ष 1929 में अभिभूत और स्पंदित किया था।उत्तराखंड के सौंदर्य- स्थल कौसानी में एक दिन के प्रवास के लिए आए श्रद्धेय बापूजी 24 जून से 7 जुलाई तक यहीं रुक गए। बापू ने यहीं 'अनासक्ति योग' पुस्तक का लेखन भी किया।

उत्तराखंड में महात्मा गांधी पर्यटन परिपथ...

उत्तराखंड में महात्मा गांधी जी द्वारा की गई यात्राएं स्वाधीनता आंदोलन, स्वराज लोक कल्याण के लिए थी किंतु गांधीजी हिमालय और गंगा के बीच खुद को पाकर शांति व सौंदर्य के मध्य जनकल्याण की भावना के साथ ही तन मन की प्रफुल्लता से अभिभूत हुए। Image

On this day in 1869, #MahatmaGandhi was born in Porbandar, Gujarat.

In 1982, Richard Attenborough's film 'Gandhi' raked in eight Oscars. The film had an ensemble cast and crew, even in lesser roles. Many were already famous and many became legends in the years to come.

In 1962, Motilal Kothari, while working for the Indian High Commission in London, asked Richard Attenborough whether he would direct a film on Gandhi. He got Mountbatten to have a word with Jawaharlal Nehru who agreed with the script. The film is dedicated to all three of them.
Nehru's choice for the role of Gandhi was Alec Guinness. Peter Finch, Harvey Finney, Anthony Hopkins and even Dustin Hoffman were considered at one point of time. The role finally went to a certain Krishna Pandit Bhanji. Ben Kingsley, as he was better known, won an Oscar for it.

#MahatmaGandhi was responsible for the worst genocide in the history of mankind , he spoke about ahimsa but his muslim appeasement led to the worst Hmsa.

One should be judged by the results of ones action not by his lip service

He did Gaddhari to Hindus & Hindustan
Congress CWC unanimously elected Sardar Patel as PM , but this man #MahatmaGandhi propped up a womaniserr as PM and scre*ed the prospects of Bharath for 6 decades.

Gandhi was responsible for the creation of cancerous Pakistan

He gifted Hindu and Sikh majority Lahore to Pakistan
#MahatmaGandhi wanted to experiment with truth, now my simple commonsense question is , can truth be experimented ?

This Gandhi could have saved lots of patriots and freedom fighters from death , but he turned away.

Gandhi could have saved Nethaji but he didn't

#Thread: #VeerSavarkar - From the eyes of #MahatmaGandhi, #NetajiBose #IndiraGandhi & #Communists.

#Swantantryaveer Vinayak Damodar Savarkar, popularly known as Veer Savarkar was an Indian patriot, independence activist, poet, writer and a social revolutionary.

(1/21) Image
Post 2014, several allegations were made to malign the image of #VeerSavarkar.

Despite the availability of several documents in the public domain, some people chose to believe the blatant lies spread about him by #Communists/#Islamists and vicious politicians.

In this thread, let us try to understand #Savarkar through the eyes of some eminent and revered personalities throughout India.

🔸#MahatmaGandhi: Contrary to popular perceptions, #Gandhi was not at loggerheads with Savarkar.
