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.

2.The so called Gen.Dwyer,who was the British Raj's local commander,issued an order requiring all Indians using that street to crawl its length on their hand and knees.

3.He also authorized the indiscriminate public whipping of natives who came within lathi length of British Policemen.

4.Sikh community opposed this order and gathered to protest this and arrest of their leaders on April 13,1919 at Jallianwala Bagh on the event of Sikh new year and a festival Baisakhi.


5.Gen.Dwyer carried 90 armed soldiers with him and 2 armored vans with machine guns to keep a eye over this gathering.
6.He ordered to open fire on unarmed innocent gathering without any warning.

7.Firing continued 10-15 minutes till the ammunition were exhausted with a total of 1650 round unloaded on screaming,terrified crowd running for their lives.

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.

Hello Zaheer Bhai,
Thanks for the wonderful post.I wish the current generation of politician will take a lesson from the martyrs of Jalianwala. Crores of Indian are still struggling with 2 times of food and crorepati politicians are increasing in Parliament. We could not make child education compulsory and the nos. of billionaire are increasing in India day by day. I think we are privileged one having got the education. I request all of you to think about those children who could not get education (unlike us who was reading comics at our child hood) and do something for them.

Toonfactory: शुक्रिया,आलोक भाई.आप जैसे दिग्गज जब किसी पोस्ट की तारीफ करें तो ज़रूर उसमे कुछ तो बात रही होगी.जलियांवाला बाग़ हादसा मुझे अंदर से उद्देलित कर देता है और मैं ये सोचता रह जाता हूँ की आखिर कैसे कोई आदमी हज़ारों निहत्थे लोगों की भीड़ पर इतनी बेरहमी से गोलियां चलवा सकता हैं!!क्या ये पशुता की हद नहीं है?और उसपर तुर्रा ये की इस अमानवीय कृत्य की निंदा करने की बजाये ब्रिटिश अफसरान ने उसको सराहा और इस हरकत को सही ठहराया.
इसी क्रूरता से विचलित होकर उद्धम सिंह ने 21 वर्ष बाद बदले की कार्रवाई की और जनरल डायर को यमलोक पहुचाया.अँगरेज़ भले ही उद्धम सिंह को आतंकवादी करार दे पर इससे ये सत्यता नहीं बदल जाती की आतंकवाद का उद्गम दमनित और शोषित विचारधारा से ही होता है.

Vijay Bhai: विजय भाई,बहुत शुक्रिया.आपकी कमेंट्स हमेशा स्नेह और गर्मजोशी से भरपूर होती है जिनका हमेशा ही इंतजार रहता हैं.वैसे तो नाचीज़ इस क़ाबिल नहीं है की उसपर कुछ लिखा जाये ये तो बस आपकी मोहब्बत और बड़प्पन है जो आप खाकसार को किसी क़ाबिल समझते हैं.
वो तस्वीरें मेरे पास महफूज़ है आपकी निशानी की तरह,आप जब हुक्म दें मैं आपको मैं मेल के ज़रिये भेज दूंगा.

Abdul Qureshi: Welcome Abdul Bhai.If these current politicians would have any sort of sensitivity then the current scenario of country would have been somewhat different.
