    बड़ा गहरा है तेरा कुआँ….
    जो गुम हुई इसमे माँ की दुआ…
    खुदगर्जी में तूने अपनी दीवारों को लाल कर डाला…
    कितना ज़ालिम है तू ओ जलियांवाला…

    खेलते बच्चों को किसने गुमसुम कर डाला,
    कितना काला है वो गोरी चमड़ी वाला…

    सुबह से खड़े थे वो तो तेरे जवाब सुनने के वास्ते,
    शाम तक पट गए लाशो से संकरे रास्ते.

    आयेंगे वो दिन उसको यकीन था,
    दौड़ी चौखट तक…कोई नहीं था.

    ऐसा तो न था मासूमो का विरोध,
    जो तेरी ‘महारानी’ ने उन्हें तोहफे मे दिया बारूद.

    कम पड़ रहे थे क्या भीगे जज़्बात,
    क्यों पड़ने लगी ये बरसात?

    पलके कहाँ झपकेंगी,
    देखना है कितनी लम्बी होगी ये रात.

    ज़ख़्मी बिछड़े अब कहाँ जायेंगे…
    तेरे निजाम के कर्फ्यू मे अपनों से पहले लाशो तक गिद्ध, कुत्ते आयेंगे…

    उसके मन मे था ये बैसाखी मेला लेकर आयेगी…
    अब से वो अभागी कभी बैसाखी नहीं मनायेगी…

    तेरी इबारत मे एक माँ ठगी गयी…
    सच को दबाकर अपनी बात को तो साबित कर दिया सही…
    अरे..रुक कर देख तेरी एक गोली किसी नन्हे से दिल को भेद गयी…

    I hear few leaders visited the place.

    But the saddest part is media did not find any time from SRK detention saga or IPL crap to report this 93rd anniversary of massacre :tsk:

    Tagore's Repudiation of British Knighthood After The Jallianwala Massacre

    Letter from Rabindranath Tagore to Lord Chelmsford, Viceroy of India

    Calcutta [India]
    31 May 1919

    Your Excellency,

    The enormity of the measures taken by the Government in the Punjab for quelling some local disturbances has, with a rude shock, revealed to our minds the helplessness of our position as British subjects in India. The disproportionate severity of the punishments inflicted upon the unfortunate people and the methods of carrying them out, we are convinced, are without parallel in the history of civilised governments, barring some conspicuous exceptions, recent and remote. Considering that such treatment has been meted out to a population, disarmed and resourceless, by a power which has the most terribly efficient organisation for destruction of human lives, we must strongly assert that it can claim no political expediency, far less moral justification. The accounts of the insults and sufferings by our brothers in Punjab have trickled through the gagged silence, reaching every corner of India, and the universal agony of indignation roused in the hearts of our people has been ignored by our rulers—possibly congratulating themselves for what they imagine as salutary lessons. This callousness has been praised by most of the Anglo-Indian papers, which have in some cases gone to the brutal length of making fun of our sufferings, without receiving the least check from the same authority—relentlessly careful in smothering every cry of pain and expression of judgement from the organs representing the sufferers. Knowing that our appeals have been in vain and that the passion of vengeance is blinding the nobler vision of statesmanship in our Government, which could so easily afford to be magnanimous as befitting its physical strength and moral tradition, the very least that I can do for my country is to take all consequences upon myself in giving voice to the protest of the millions of my countrymen, surprised into a dumb anguish of terror. The time has come when badges of honour make our shame glaring in the incongruous context of humiliation, and I for my part wish to stand, shorn of all special distinctions, by the side of those of my countrymen, who, for their so-called insignificance, are liable to suffer degradation not fit for human beings.

    These are the reasons which have painfully compelled me to ask Your Excellency, with due reference and regret, to relieve me of my title of Knighthood, which I had the honour to accept from His Majesty the King at the hands of your predecessor, for whose nobleness of heart I still entertain great admiration.

    Yours faithfully,
    Rabindranath Tagore

    From the article:

    Jallianwala Bagh massacre - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    God knows how many would have been killed if armored cars had been brought to bear.

    Collett, The Butcher of Amritsar: General Reginald Dyer p 255-58

    So are you redeeming, what Dyer did as genocide? was he innocent? What does that mean? showing another massacre? is this one any less than the other?

    i for one i am proud of who shot him dead! for Vengeance and retribution, for all those souls killed in jalianwalla bagh massacre!

    Making friends is harder, making enemies is easy.

    Really, if your comprehension is so limited, don't bother to reply to my posts. I don't have time to explain everything to you.

    And Dyer died of a stroke, you ignorant wretch. You are thinking of O'Dwyer.

    Go away and read your history.

    Jesus, is it a full moon or what?
