Presented below are some images, etc., related to the well-known massacre committed by Gen. Reginald Dyer and other British higher-ups on the innocent, unarmed people of Punjab, including women and children on 13 April 1919 which happened to be an important festival day for the Sikhs - Baisakhi. A perusal of these heart rending images will give you some idea about how much struggle and sacrifices our past leaders and forefathers made to get us the most covetous asset - freedom from the British yoke.
It is really pathetic to see our our political leaders - Netas, irrespective of parties and regions, misusing their powers to amass wealth, and to win the election by offering money and other gifts to the electorates. Equally unfortunate is the fact that our gullible people are so enticed to such a low level that they, without giving importance to their self-esteem, are willing to receive the ill-gotten money from the dishonest political candidates to cast their votes in their favor. The people, in general, are worried where we we will be heading in the decades to come. The good news is the younger generation is not happy about the politicians and their lack of sense of duty, social responsibility and love for the country.
