Ever heard about this man, Rajiv Goswami ?

Read this to know about him.
Rajiv Goswami was a student belonging to Brahmin community. In 1990 he set himself on fire to protest against the Mandal Commission which was strengthening the provisions for reservations in both education as well as jobs.
He eventually died due to causes related to his self immolation. Nothing is told about him to any of the current generations because his story doesnt fit into the narratives and agendas of the some people.
His story has been completely ignored for 3 decades while people like Rohith Vemula who held prayer sessions for terrorist Yakub Memon are shoved down our throats by the media to induce a guilt in us and make us stop associating ourselves with our ethnic and religious identity.

A #Thread on Chapati Movement, a movement which changed the fate of Company's rule in India. A movement which changed the Indian politics and paved the way for the India's freedom.

(1/n)
(2/n)
The revolt of 1857, or the Sepoy mutiny, was India's first war of independence from the British rule. Indian soldiers weren't as well equipped as the British army and yet they fought with all their might and laid down their lives fighting the oppressive British policies.
(3/n)
But how did it all begin? How did our soldiers strategize at a time when modes of communication weren't as fast as they are today?

Some historians believe that a few months before the uprising of 1857, a distribution of chapatis began which nobody was able to explain.
