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
exchange of messages.
Between 27 August and 11 September 1897, the Pashtuns launched a series of attacks to capture the British headquarters but the 36 Sikh Regiment under the command of Colonel Haughton did not allow them to succeed. Heliograph, which uses the sun's rays to Image
transmit messages, communicated and carried information between Saragarhi and the British Headquarters. On 12 September 1897, 10,000 Pashtuns attacked Saragarhi with the aim of breaking the channel between the two forts.
Sikh soldiers fought the greatest battle in history. 21
Sikhs took on 10,000 Afghans and killed 600 Pashtuns before being martyred. The leader of the regiment, Ishar Singh, killed more than 20 enemies. This fight is great because its outcome was known to all. Despite this, the Sikh soldiers fought with their lives and prevented
10,000 soldiers from advancing for a day until additional forces arrived.
When the news of this war reached Britain, the British Parliament also stood in London in honor of the Sikh soldiers.

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.

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 '

Do you know that Amul is the acronym for Anand Milk Union Limited, India's largest dairy company?
Situated in Anand, Gujarat, this cooperative institution removed the middlemen and made the dairy farmers of Gujarat jointly owner of the milk business. This brought a new
revolution of milk, which came to be called India's White Revolution or Operation Flood in the 1970s. It transformed India from a milkless country into the world's largest producer of milk and dairy products.
Amul's victory saga depends on the hard work and vision of three men -
also known as the Amul Trimurti - Varghiz Kurien, Tribhuvandas Kishibhai Patel and HM Dalaya. Who were these?

In 1946, Verghiz Kurien started Amul as a dairy cooperative. He also founded the Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Institute, which managed the Amul brand. Today, the
