No Congress party man favoured Ram temple. Then how come Rajiv Gandhi govt reportedly had the complex opened for Hindu worshipers in 1986? To divert attention from Gumnami Baba/Netaji controversy that was raging in Ayodhya at that time? Watch video:

Best ever Ramayana experience till date is thanks to a Japanese. Indophile Yugo Sako came up with the idea after meeting archaeologist B B Lal. Production began in 1984. Koichi Sasaki was on the Japanese side and Ram Mohan, leading animation director, on the Indian. 1/

Congressi historians won't tell you how the Gandhian highcommand hounded Subhas Bose for opposing the Congress's prohibition programme. You are missing out on a lot of suppressed stories if you haven't yet read Bose: The Inconvenient Nationalist @anujdhar

It is amusing to see the scale of outrage over an isolated act of a fringe group in a state whose economy depends massively on the gross violation of a central Gandhian principle. [1/n] @anujdhar

And same kind of maintenance allowance, at almost half i.e Rs 60 p.m. given only during half the period of restrictive detention in Ratnagiri from 1929-1937 is called as pension to sell one's soul. But everything else is called "normal govt procedures". Hypocrisy with no limits!

There were secret clauses in the Transfer of Power. We know of one. Intelligence Bureau kept on reporting to London till 1968. Old toadies of the British raj were in in charge even after Independence. @ProfKapilKumar @chandrachurg @PanickarS @RamaGoyal18

@anujdhar @chandrachurg this is Buxi Bazar Durga Puja Committee's Durgotsav. It is located in Badhei Sahi, Buxi Bazar and it was started by Janakinath Bose more than 125+ years ago. Netaji n his entire family used to visit here so long as they stayed in Cuttack.

When Bose was exiled to Europe in 1933, he took up the cause of the Bengal prisoners, many of whom did not receive any allowance. There was a month-long discussion in the pages of the Manchester Guardian, and questions were asked in the House of Commons. [4/n]

3. Thus, as the following list from July 1932 shows, while Bose received Rs 3 and 8 annas daily and Rs 32 monthly, Gandhi and Patel received a consolidated Rs 100 per month, each. The Bengal Criminal Law of 1930 reduced the allowances drastically. [3/n]

2. The types of allowances were - (a) lump sum on entering jail, (b) daily allowance for food etc., (c) monthly allowance, and (d) family allowance, where relevant. The amounts were fixed by the govt according to how they perceived the socioeconomic status of the prisoner [2/n]

Some misunderstanding seems to have crept up regarding allowances provided by the British Indian govt to prisoners. Here are the facts 1. By law, state prisoners were eligible for allowances, especially when held without trial. [1/n] @vikramsampath @Sanjay_Dixit @anujdhar
