यह दुर्गा भाभी हैं, वही दुर्गा भाभी जिन्होंने साण्डर्स वध के बाद राजगुरू और भगतसिंह को लाहौर से अंग्रेजो की नाक के नीचे से निकालकर कोलकत्ता ले गयी. इनके पति क्रन्तिकारी भगवती चरण वर्मा थे. ये भी कहा जाता है कि चंद्रशेखर आजाद के पास आखिरी वक्त में जो माउजर था, वो भी दुर्गा
भाभी ने ही उनको दिया था.
15अक्टूबर 1999 में वो इस दुनिया से गुमनाम ही विदा हो गयी कुछ एक दो अखबारों ने उनके बारे में छापा बस.
आज आज़ादी के इतने साल के बाद भी न तो उस विरांगना को इतिहास के पन्नों में वो जगह मिली जिसकी वो हकदार थीं और न ही वो किसी को याद रही चाहे वो सरकार हो या
जनता.
एक स्मारक का नाम तक उनके नाम पर नही है कहीं कोई मूर्ति नहीं है उनकी. सरकार तो भूली ही जनता भी भूल गयी,
ऐसी वीर वीरांगनाओं को हम शत शत नमन करते है और भविष्य मे ऐसे तमाम वीरों को सम्मान दिलाने के लिये प्रयासरत रहें....!

युद्ध हुआ लड़ी लड़ाई,वो सारे तेज़-तर्रार थे,
जो भिड़ गए दस हज़ारो से,वो 21सिख सरदार थे।
There was a war and a fight was fought, all of them were fast-paced,
There were 21 Sikh Sardars who clashed with the Ten Thousand.
Let's know the story of the historical battle of Saragarhi Image
Saragarhi was a small village in Kohat district. This area was then part of India which now comes in Pakistan. The British had captured the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa region but they were afraid of attack by the rebel Pashtuns. Saragarhi served as a communication post between the two ImageImage
forts, Lockhart and Gullistan. Both these forts served as the two headquarters of the British Indian Army in the North-West region. There was a distance of only a few kilometers between them but it was difficult to see from one fort to another. So Saragarhi used to work for the Image

Abdul Habib Yusuf Marfani of Junagadh had donated 1 crore rupees to Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose for the Azad Hind Fauj at that time. The contribution of the INA in the history of independence of the country is less discussed.
It was neither an adventure-lik mission,
nor a reaction to an immediate action. It was a marvel of Subhash Babu's indomitable will, diplomatic skills and military organization skills. This unsurpassed campaign of Subhash Bose is considered a different kind of effort in the history of freedom around the world. But
there is hardly any serious academic research on the political life of the INA and Netaji Subhash, except for 'A Forgotten Army' and the personal memoirs of some INA warriors.
Subhash Babu's biggest contribution has been that during the very dangerous period of bigotry and

Compiling some of the major blunders committed by central government in Kashmir since 1947:

1. Referring the matter to UN when the Indian Army was in the process of flushing out the invaders in 1947.

2. Nehru’s uncalled for assurance that the wishes of the people of the
State would be ascertained (1947).

3. Bartering away the territorial gains of 1965 at Tashkant.

4. Indira Gandhi could have dictated settlement of the Kashmir question in 1972: following the liberation of Bangladesh.

5. Release of militants in exchange for Rubaiya Sayeed by
VP Singh on Dec 13, 1989.

6. Not crossing the LOC after clearing the aggression from Kargil, 1999.

7. Handing over three militants (Masood Azhar, Omar Sheikh, Mushtaq Zargar) at Kandahar on Dec 31, 1999.

After all downfalls, in a big step on August 5, 2019 Article 370 and .

प्रथम विश्व युद्ध के समय ब्रिटेन की तरफ से लड़ने के लिये कहते हैं 12लाख 70हजार भारतीय सैनिक गये।
भारतीय राजा रजवाड़ो ने अपने खजाने खोल दिये।।
75 हजार भारतीय विदेशी धरती पर मारे गये जिनकी लाश तक का क्रियाकर्म नही हो सका, घरवाले अंतिम दर्शन भी नही कर सके। लाखो घायल हुए,
हजारो के अंग भंग हो गये, बहुत से लोग पूरी उम्र अपाहिज रहे।
भारतीय लोग अंग्रेजों के गुलाम होते हुए भी उनकी जीत के लिए प्रार्थना कर रहे थे।
युद्ध की समाप्ति के बाद ब्रिटेन जहाँ दुखी था क्योंकि उसकी अर्थव्यवस्था बुरी तरह बिगड़ चुकी थी, उनके सामने अपने देश को संभालने के लिये
भी संकट खड़ा हो चुका था। वहीं इतनी गुलामी झेलने पर भी भारतीयों ने इस जीत का जश्न मनाया, अंगेजो में उत्साह भरा कि वो फिर खड़े हो और हम पर अच्छे से शासन कर सकें।
वही हुआ, अंग्रेज दस्युओं ने भारत को और ज्यादा लूटा , नये नये टैक्स लगाये और हम तो बड़े दिलवाले हैं, वसुदेव कुटुम्बकम

Story of Azad Hind Bank
Before independence, the picture of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose was also printed on the Indian currency. A replica of this currency issued by Azad Hind Bank can be seen on the currency display board of the main branch of State Bank of India located at Bank
Road in Gorakhpur city of Uttar Pradesh.
He also got a lot of support for the war that Netaji had started to liberate the country. People also donated in a big way. A bank was also created in April 1943 to handle these money. Its name was 'Azad Hind Bank'. This bank was
established in Rangoon, the capital of Varma. Varma is now known as Myanmar.
In the olden days, even the king-maharaja used to issue coins in his name, so in the same way this government of Netaji also issued its currency through 'Azad Hind Bank'. The countries which supported '
