Emergency in India: Through pictures

First of all, just because I am writing this doesn’t mrean I am a Sanghi or a supporter of Nehru Dynasty Rule. I don’t support BJP or Congress or any other party.Once upon a time I liked Kejriwal but now he is the worst of all.In fact I have never voted in my life yet( I know not something to be proud off) just because politics in our country disappoint me and I can’t relate to it. It’s just as a citizen of this great great country I feel that we all who take freedom for granted should know that such things are possible in a democratic country like us. And before putting on faith and blindly supporting anyone we should always remember our history.So (re) publishing some of the pictures for the younger lot who never took interest! “Emergency?…Whatt?? So uncool? What’s it? Never heard anyone putting an update about it on Facebook…”Well take a look at the pictures and you might be curious about a very important part of our history which is never taught in your school!

Anything is possible anyday. So just try not to support things just out of your own selfishness. Research well before hashtagging anything on twitter. Freedom is above all. Hail India! Hail Freedom

  1. And i too was a big fan of Kejriwal ji when he started. I still respect him and his wife more than him for her support to him in his real days of fights .. How I wish he wouldn’t have changed his ideology.. A good writeup and wonderful information.. Cool
