1-एक टक देर तक उस सुपुरुष को निहारते रहने के बाद बुजुर्ग भीलनी के मुंह से स्वर/बोल फूटे -

"कहो राम ! सबरी की डीह ढूंढ़ने में अधिक कष्ट तो नहीं हुआ ?"

राम मुस्कुराए :- "यहां तो आना ही था मां, कष्ट का क्या मोल, क्या मूल्य ?" 2-"जानते हो राम !

तुम्हारी प्रतीक्षा तब से कर रही हूँ, जब तुम जन्मे भी नहीं थे|

यह भी नहीं जानती थी, कि तुम कौन हो ?

कैसे दिखते हो ? क्यों आओगे मेरे पास ?

बस इतना ज्ञात था कि कोई पुरुषोत्तम आएगा जो मेरी प्रतीक्षा का अंत करेगा|

1-Jallianwala Bagh: Why Indians fired on Indians

By- Rajat Mitra - Psychologist and Author of ‘The Infidel Next Door’

I lived in Hong Kong for some years.

One of the facts I observed was that Hong Kongers by and large do not like Indians and many of them even hate us. 2-Whether an Indian goes on to look for a home or on the streets to buy groceries, the feeling is palpable.

Many Indians I talked to said they feel it rather strongly.

I had asked several people but got no satisfactory answer.
