Mr. Maunmohan, Where were you?

Where were you Mr Maunmohan when your colleagues did Character Assassination of entire Scientific Community?

Where were you when medical professionals were essentially being called frauds by your party and its extended ecosystem?

two vaccines in early January 2021. It should have been a moment of celebration because one vaccine #Covaxin was completely indegenously developed and manufactured while the other vaccine #Covishield was also locally manufactured. What followed though was one of the most
shameful chapters in modern Indian political discourse.
No Patriot will forget the campaign done by top Congress leaders who went on to shame Bharat Biotech's Covaxin in front of the world.

Where were you Mr Maunmohan at that time when your friendly media discredited Covaxin

His Writings & Speeches Which Remains Hidden.
The blood-curdling atrocities committed by the Moplas in Malabar against the Hindus were indescribable. All over Southern India, a wave of horrified feeling had spread among the Hindus of every shade of opinion,
which was intensified when certain Khilafat leaders were so misguided as to pass resolutions of congratulations to the Moplas on the brave fight they were conducting for the sake of religion". Any person could have said that this was too heavy a price for Hindu-Muslim unity.
But Mr. Gandhi was so much obsessed by the necessity of establishing Hindu-Muslim unity that he was prepared to make light of the doings of the Moplas and the Khilafats who were congratulating them. He spoke of the Mappilas as the "brave God-fearing Moplahs who were fighting for

The Thapar’s and Nehru’s.
Statutory Warning – I will not be responsible for serious adverse events happening after reading this.
Born in 1855, Karan Thapar’s paternal grandfather was Diwan Bahadur Kunj Behari Thapar of Lahore. He belonged to a section of the Punjabi elite that
came into new wealth as commission agents for the British.
Kunj Behari Thapar was also one of four people, including Umar Hayat Khan, Chaudhary Gajjan Singh & Rai Bahadur Lal Chand, who donated Rs 1.75 lakh to the fund of Punjab governor Sir Michael O’Dwyer — the man who backed
the actions of Brigadier-General Reginald Dyer during the Jallianwala Bagh massacre.
Kunj Behari Thapar was also awarded the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire in 1920 for his loyalty.
Kunj Behari Thapar had three sons — Daya Ram, Prem Nath and Pran Nath — as well as

On this day 102 years back,
Cold-blooded massacre happened at #Jallianwalabagh.
It was Sunday & around 15,000 Hindu’s, Sikh's of Amritsar were celebrating their new year Baisakhi at the 7 acre park.
It was evening & the British came with around 90 foot soldiers & the 1st thing
they did was to close the only exit of the park.
The British under the orders of Acting Brigadier Reginald Dyer took positions & started Indiscriminate Shooting..
They shot till their ammunition was finished & didn't stop even for a second in between.
While around 1000+ people
died due to shooting, around 200+ people died when they fell into the deep well while escaping the bullets.
The youngest was a 7 month infant..
The estimates says around 1200 people were massacred & 8000 people were injured..

On her 152nd birth anniversary, let us revisit a tragedy called #KasturbaGandhi.
The First Image is Kasturba Washing Gandhi’s Feet.
Bharatiya History witnessed two Over Hyped characters; both of them treated their wives with utmost contempt not acceptable to humanity.
They were
Gandhi and Nehru.
The Real Gandhi MISTREATED his family, Once he wrote a letter and I quote
"I simply cannot bear to look at Ba's face, the expression is often like that of a meek cow and that in her own dump manner she is saying something".
Born on April 11, 1869 at Porbander,
Kasturba was elder to Gandhi by 6 months, she married Mohandas with whom she played since her childhood.
The person whom she married was a SEXUALLY OVERDRIVEN husband who later took celibacy without her consent.
Infact, MK Gandhi left Kasturba in 1908 for Hermann Kallenbach,

Bankim Chandra Chatterjee – An Author/Reformer
In this thread/post, I’m deliberating the characters of the women in his novels and in the end leave the choice to readers for judgement.
Was he Communal/Patriarchal as claimed by WOKE’s?
Bankim Chandra’s early literary efforts
were produced in verse. In 1853, he brought out two volumes of poems entitled Lalita and Manasi, but after this Bankimchandra discarded poetry for fiction. Under the influence of the contemporary craze for writing in English, his first novel, Rajmohan’s Wife (1864)
Bishabriksha
(1873) is his first social novel which centres on the plight of widows.
Krishnakanter Uil (1878) is a realistic social novel and revolves around a widow’s socially inhibited love and its grim tragedy.

Today is the death anniversary of #RajendraMathur, an eminent journalist and later editor of @NavbharatTimes, as I wanted to know more about this gentleman I browsed and browsed, but didn't find any..

ನೂರಾರು ಮನೆಗೋಗಿ ಶುಭಕಾರ್ಯಕೆ ಕೂಗಿ ಕರೆದಾಗಲೆ ಮದುವೆಯೆ

ಸರಿಗಮ ಪದನಿಸ ಊದಿಸಿ ತರತರ ಅಡಿಗೆಯ ಮಾಡಿಸಿ

ಗಟ್ಟಿಮೇಳ ಬಡಿದಾಗ ಅಕ್ಷತೆಯಲ್ಲೇ ಮದುವೆಯೆ
ನಿಜವಾಗಿ ನನಗೇನು ತೋಚದೆ ಹೇಳಮ್ಮ ನೀನೆಂದು ಕೇಳಿದೆ
ಮನಸೊಂದೆ ಸಾಕಂತೆ ಸಾಕ್ಷಿಗೆ ಅರಿಶಿಣವೇ ಬೇಕಂತೆ ತಾಳಿಗೆ

The Sepoy Who Started It All.

The 1st War Of Bharatiya Independence was hidden in records as #SepoyMutiny.

If not for #VeerSavarkar, we would've never realised the heroes of those days, their fight against British empire, their sacrifice for our today.

29/3/1857 Image
Mangal Pandey shot down British officers & inspired his entire barrack to rise against the British.

The new cartridge supplied by British required one to use his mouth to open, it was smeared with Cow & Pig fat & was an insult for both Hindus & Muslims.

The British earlier had
given Bible for all sepoys to read which had infuriated Mangal.

He was waiting for an opportunity & the new cartridge gave him one.

On that day in 1857, he voluntarily took up the gun & shot many British officers, most of the other soldiers in his barrack didn't support his

How many of us know that Sanjay Dutt is uncle of Rahul Gandhi.

Swagata Sen has written an exhaustive
article about Raj Kapoor & Nargis.. in between the lines you will come across Motilal's unashamed adultery.

And this is the reason why Nehru made Nargis an MP from Rajyasabha & subsequently Sunil Dutt & his daughter
