Gandhi - The Father of Nation

If government can make Pongal an optional holiday, let it make other holidays optional too. Especially Oct 2nd. Nobody likes Gandhi anymore, after knowing him. He is not the father of nation. He did not lead the freedom struggle alone. He just appeared towards end n took all the credit.

Before continuing, I just want to say I don't hate Gandhi. It is the tactics he and historians used and use to make it appear that the entire freedom struggle started only after Gandhi's entry; and that he gave birth to dynasty politics while aiming for a Republic.
Nobody talks about Mangal Pandey who revolted against British from within the British forces. Forget Azad, Bhagat Singh n Sukhdev. They are branded terrorists now.

Lakhs fighted, thousands died n hundreds were jailed. Nobody remembers 1857. It is not there in school text books. Rani of Jhansi, Tatya Tope, and Bahadur Shah launched an attack on English... giving spark to what is now called the freedom fight and whose credit goes to Gandhi.

The British sent many to Andaman to isolate them. Was Gandhi ever sent there? No. He enjoyed most of his prison time in lavish guest houses of the British.

It was Sardar Vallabh bhai who shaped current India. It was Sardar Vallabh bhai Patel who used his convincing skills to ask different princely states n provinces to join the Indian Republic. It was Sardar Vallabh bhai Patel who had Indian army launch an attack on Hyderabad that was trying to join Pakistan. The army defeated Razakars who were on killing, looting n raping spree. It was Patel who brought peace to that area.

His fellow fighters got beaten up brutally but this guy wasn't as much as like see a baton in India. South Africa is a different story. He took entire credit of the work of common people from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. It was supposed to be one country but is three parts now.

And as if all that was not enough, he lent his surname to Feroz Khan so that Indira Khan could become Indira Gandhi.

Ever since, these fake Gandhis exploited the poor average person. Nobody really wants to remember Gandhi seriously. We and our immediate neighbors are still paying the price of the great gamble that Gandhi-Nehru duo played.

There's lot more to the story but I don't want my account suspended again. The above is enough for people to understand that Gandhi was not what he projected himself as. And if anyone is to be blamed for the killings of forces on both sides of border, it is Gandhi. You simply can't blame the governments of India or Pakistan.

Kashmir became a sacrificial goat. Because when two power centers fight, it's always the general public that is sacrificed. What was supposed to be one huge power is now three power centers, all thanks to Gandhi. Why a holiday on his birthday? Why the hype? Just because a certain family can rule India for long. And it did.

Ah BTW, who was Baba Amte? Ever heard of him? No?!

Best app for Android phones - Clean Master from Cheetah Mobile

After five years of testing different multipurpose apps for Android maintenance, I realize Clean Master from Cheetah Mobile is the best maintenance app for Android phones. Not only maintenance, Clean Master offers you much more than you can expect from a single app. For a while, it felt the "All in One for Android" is good. But turned out it leaves out add-ins even after you remove it. What is available in single code in Clean Master of Cheetah Mobile, is available as add-ins in All in One app for Android. When you uninstall All in One app, the add-ins continue to run in RAM. I could not find any method to remove them as they were not visible in any App Managers. I had to do a factory reset and that was when my doubts were removed and I acknowledged Clean Master of Cheetah Mobile is the best option for Android phones. Lock Screen Here are features at a glance. Let's start from Lock Screen. Replacing your phone lock screen, you can set up Clean Master Lock Scr

Significance or Meaning of Swaha and Ithi in Sanskrit Mantras

You might have noticed that all mantras begin with the sound of "OM". What you might have ignored or failed to notice that mantras in Sanskrit end with "ithi" or "swaha". Some of you end mantras with just a "namah". Not to scare you, but if you fail to use "ithi" at end of each mantra or at the very end of any stotra (hymn), the mantra & related offering (sacrifice or prasadam) doesn't reach the god being prayed. The word "ithi" marks the end of mantra, and urges gods to accept whatever you are offering. The word "swaha" is used more in havans (rituals were you put offerings/prasad directly into fire). Since people put offerings into fire while saying "swaha", many of us associate it with "destruction". When anyone says "sab kuch swaha ho gaya (everything became swaha)", it does and should not be concluded that he or she lost things. It is a wrong notion that associates &qu

Analysis of Mahabharata Characters - Bhishma

Bhishma is one of the powerful characters of the epic, Mahabharata that contains and shows a pious way of life to the mortals living on earth. I am starting this Analysis of Mahabharata Characters with Bhishma as he is the oldest character in the epic/saga and has tremendous influence on the other characters of Mahabharata. Bhishma was the son of king Shantanu and Ganga (the river Ganges in female form). Bhishma was considered one of the eight Vasus (rishis) who had to take birth on earth due to a curse. Before we analyze the character, let us take a quick look at the story of Bhishma according to the Mahabharata. Background Of Bhishma Bhismha is considered one of the eight Vasus who stole a cow named Kamadhenu from a sage. When the sage cursed them to take birth as humans, all Vasus asked for his forgiveness. The sage, for seven Vasus who helped the main Vasu to steal the cow, reduced the curse to death just after birth. However, the main Vasu who actually stole the cow was
