13th April 1919 is a historic day in Indian History as on this day scores of innocent peoples were butchered in cold blood by Gen.Dwyer,the then General of British Raj.
Following comic post is a humble dedication for the martyrs of Jallianwala Bagh.
Here are the few facts about the massacre:
1.After the 1st world war in 1918 there was a statement that a British women was molested in streets of Amritsar,Punjab.

Covers of first edition of old novels of Ved Prakash Sharma.
Covers of very first edition of old novels of VPS specially when he was being published by Manoj Pocket Books fascinate me much.I always try to find the very first edition of these novels,though i am having a few of them in their very 1st edition but this time i found a couple of those novels for which i was longing from a quite long time. One of those novel was Alphanse Ki Shadi,i was having a reprint version of this novel but very recently i found the very first edition of this novel in good condition along with few other novels too. Presenting herewith the covers of those novels for all of you.
A reader requested to scan and post these novels but to scan a whole novel of more than 200 pages is a difficult job specially when there are not much readers to read them online,and also since the reprint version of these novels are easily available in market hence there seems no logic in scanning and posting them.
