Jallianwala bagh, which reminds us one of the darkest day of Indian history.
On the 13th day of April 1919,civilians gathered to celebrate baishakhi,a cultural and religious festival of north India.This gathering was also to condemn the deportation of two national leaders.On the orders of General Dyre of British army,troops first blocked the entry and than locked the exits and opened fire. Thousands of innocent died in this brutality and whole nation got stunned.
Since my childhood whenever I think about this day,I get full of anger and it sends shivers down my spine.I had hoped that since this place is associated with the sad past of Indian history,it must be invoking some sense of patriotism in the heart of visitors or at least people will not make it a picnic spot. But I was totally wrong,people have failed to preserve its sanctity.
When I visited Jallianwala Bagh, I broke down at every front. We should raise our voice and take pledge to preserve the beauty and sanctity of these places which are critically associated with our history and identity.
