The aftermath of the 1921 Moplah Terror had come to Doctorji as a shock.

Indian Muslims had proved themselves Muslims first and Indians only secondarily so that when the Khilafat was given up in Turkey, they withdrew from the allied movement for
national independence.
The whole atmosphere was charged with Muslim fanaticism. ‘Allah ho akbar’ and not ‘Bharat mata ki jai’ was heard everywhere. Soon there were Muslim riots in Bannu, Kohat, Multan, Nagpur, Kanpur and elsewhere.

‘These are not Hindu-Muslim riots,’
he would say. ‘These are Muslim riots because in every single case it is they who start them and go on the offensive.’
These riots culminated in the Moplah atrocity, completed with arson, loot, murder, rape and forced conversion. The nation was dazed. And Doctorji wondered:
'Is it Khilafat (restoration of Khalif) or Akhilafat (catastrophe for all)?...’
It became evident that the Hindus were the nation in Bharat and that Hindutva was Rashtriyatva.

While wishful thinkers pretended not to see the writing across the national political firmament,
the realist in Dr Hedgewar refused to dream up wishy-washy dreams. The truth was out. Only Hindus would free Hindustan and they alone could save Hindu culture. Only Hindu strength could save the country. There was no escape from the logic of facts. Hindu youth had to be
organised on the basis of personal character and absolute love of the motherland. There was no other way.
The agony of the great soul expressed itself in the formation of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh. With five friends he started the day-to-clay programme of RSS.
The great day was the auspicious Vijaya Dashami day of 1925.”

Tribute to Maharani Durgavati on her birth anniversary. She was born this day, the 5th of October in 1524. Maharani Durgavati led many battles to victory including one against Baz Bahadur, the Sultan of Malwa, and two against Mughals, herself commanding her army.
It was the third battle that Rani Durgavati lost against Akbar’s Mughal forces where she attained Veergati.

Durgavati was an expert in the sciences, politics, administration, art of warfare including use of guns, archery, sword-fight, horse-riding, and hunting.
Following is an extract from #SaffronSwords Book II (Book I: amazon.in/Saffron-Swords…) on the 3rd and last battle Maharani Durgavati fought against the Mughals:

"The Rani, positioned on her elephant, continued her resistance, killing the Mughal soldiers one after another with

The year was 1921!

Shri Subramanya Siva, one of the greatest of freedom fighters, is at Kumbakonam for Mahamaham. There he comes to know that Sri Sri Sri Maha Periyava is camping at Patteeswaram, near Kumbakonam. He goes for His darshan, but stands away from the crowd
(almost everyone who had come for Mahamaham has come for Sri Sri Sri Mahaswami's darshan too) as he is afflicted with leprosy and has thinned down considerably because of it.

Sri Sri Sri Mahaperiyava notices his presence and sends a sishya to bring him to His presence.
Shri Subramanya Siva comes before Sri Sri Sri Mahaswami and prays for devotion in the hearts of his fellow country men and for the independence of Bharatam! Sri Sri Sri Maha Periyava blesses him!

Any guesses, what was his prayers to Sri Sri Sri Mahaperiyava?

A Brief Insight About A Great Freedom Fighter Who Was Neglected Like Others By
Gandhi-Nehru Dynasty.


He was the first to declare SWARAJYA during Independence Movement, he called for HOMERULE (Swarajya) & that too in London.

The first to declare
Civil Disobedience & it was announced 20 years before Gandhi came into picture.

Verma actively involved in Independence Movement working offshore, in London Paris & breathed his last in Geneva.

SHYAMAJI KRISHNA VERMA passed away in 1930 and his last wish was his "ashes"
be immersed in SWATANTRA BHARATH, and the great man had an agreement with Switzerland government for the same.

#What_Happened_Then ?

The bloody congis hid their wealth in "Vaults of Swiss Banks" but never received the ashes...

It took #NarendraModi to bring back his ashes

ಗದಗ ಎಂದರೆ, ತಕ್ಷಣವೇ ಕರ್ನಾಟ ಭರತ ಕಥಾಮಂಜರಿ ಲೇಖಕ ಕುಮಾರ ವ್ಯಾಸ ಎಂದು ಪ್ರಸಿದ್ಧರಾದ ನಾರಾಯಣಪ್ಪನ ಹೆಸರನ್ನು ಮನಸ್ಸಿಗೆ ತರುತ್ತದೆ. ನಾಡು ಕಂಡಂತಹ ಶ್ರೇಷ್ಠ ಕವಿ, ಬರಹಗಾರ, ಸಾಹಿತಿ, ನಾಟಕ ಹಾಗೂ ಹೋರಾಟಗಾರ.ಶ್ರೀ.ಹುಯಿಲಗೋಳ ನಾರಾಯಣ ರಾವ್ ಕೂಡ ಜನಿಸಿದ್ದು ಈ ಪವಿತ್ರ ಭೂಮಿಯಲ್ಲಿಯೇ.

ವಿಪರ್ಯಾಸ ಏನೆಂದರೆ ಈ ಮಹಾನುಭಾವನ ಜೀವನ ಚರಿತ್ರೆ
ಎಷ್ಟು ಹುಡುಕಿದರೂ ಸಿಗುತ್ತಿಲ್ಲ.
ಸ್ಮಾರಕವಾಗಬೇಕಿದ್ದ ಅವರ ಮನೆ ಇಂದು ಪಾಳು ಬಿದ್ದ ಸ್ಥಿತಿಯಲ್ಲಿದೆ.

ನಾರಾಯಣರಾಯರು ಜನಿಸಿದ್ದು 1884 ಅಕ್ಟೋಬರ್ 4ರಂದು. ತಂದೆ-ತಾಯಿ ಕೃಷ್ಣರಾವ್ ಮತ್ತು ಬಹಿಣಕ್ಕ. ಬಾಲ್ಯದ ಶಿಕ್ಷಣವನ್ನು ಗದಗ, ಗೋಕಾಕ ಹಾಗು ಧಾರವಾಡಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಪೂರೈಸಿದರು. 1902ರಲ್ಲಿ ಧಾರವಾಡದಲ್ಲಿ ಮೆಟ್ರಿಕ್ ಪರೀಕ್ಷೆಯನ್ನು ಮುಗಿಸಿ
ಉಚ್ಚ ಶಿಕ್ಷಣಕ್ಕಾಗಿ ಪುಣೆಯ ಫರ್ಗ್ಯೂಸನ್ ಕಾಲೇಜನ್ನು ಸೇರಿದರು. 1907ರಲ್ಲಿ ಪದವಿಯನ್ನು ಪಡೆದ ಬಳಿಕ ಧಾರವಾಡದ ವಿಕ್ಟೋರಿಯಾ ಪ್ರೌಢಶಾಲೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ಶಿಕ್ಷಕರಾದರು. ಕೆಲಕಾಲದ ನಂತರ ಶಿಕ್ಷಕ ವೃತ್ತಿಯನ್ನು ತ್ಯಜಿಸಿ, ಮುಂಬೈಗೆ ತೆರಳಿ, ಕಾನೂನು ಪದವಿಯನ್ನು ಪಡೆದು 1911ರಲ್ಲಿ ವಕೀಲಿ ವೃತ್ತಿಯನ್ನು ಆರಂಭಿಸಿದರು. ನಾರಾಯಣರಾಯರು ಮೂಲತಃ ನಾಟಕಕಾರರು.

On February 18, 1956, the then minister of health, Rajkumari Amrit Kaur, introduced a new bill in the Lok Sabha. She had no speech prepared. But she spoke from her heart. “It has been one of my cherished dreams that for post graduate study and for the maintenance of high
standards of medical education in our country, we should have an institute of this nature which would enable our young men and women to have their post graduate education in their own country,” she said.

The plan for a Central PG Medical Institute was envisioned in 1946 & the
1st PM of India, Chacha Nehru didn't find it important...

It took 10 years for Maharani to collect adequate funds & lay the foundation for Bharat's Number One Medical Institute & Hospital.

The All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) was born.

In his first broadcast as Prime Minister on June 11, 1964,
“There comes a time in the life of every nation when it stands at the crossroads of history and must choose which way to go. But for us, there need be no difficulty or hesitation, no looking to right or left. Our way is
straight and clear—the building up of a secular mixed-economy democracy at home with freedom and prosperity, and the maintenance of world peace and friendship with select nations.”

We had our First Accidental Prime Minister and it was
#LalBahadurShastri - “A Man Who In
18 Months Made A Mark Not As A Puppet, But A Leader Worthy Of Respect And Admiration.”

It is a pity that Shastri died prematurely without implementing most of his ideas on economic reforms, deregulation and decentralisation. But it is a national shame that nobody in India
