Is ours an ideal democracy!! Hardly so, it is far from being an ideal democracy; where there should be  two equal opponents, like Conservative and Labour party in Britain; like Republican and Democratic party in USA. As for India, for the two major parties here i.e. Congress and BJP there has never been a state of relative equilibrium. There was a time when Congress was all powerful for a long time, BJP had not come into existence then. BJP came into existence and gradually spread its wings and the status now of present election result on 23 May 2019 is that BJP alone bagged 303 seats and 353 seats along with its NDA Alliance. Congress on the other hand could muster only 52 seats; along with UPA, Congress got 91. Other parties won 98 seats. What to talk of equality, Congress party could not win even 55 seats which is the requisite 10 % to become the official opposition. read more...

One year more than a century has passed, still no one has forgotten the brutality with which the atrocious killing at Jallianwala Bagh was carried out. Jallianwala Bagh is located at a distance of barely one and a half kilometers from the Golden Temple in Amritsar. On 13 Apr 1919, on the day of Baisakhi (an important Hindu festival) at 5:37 in the evening, when more than 10,000 people (some say there were 15,000 to 20,000) were gathered in the Jallianwala Bagh, acting Brigadier-General Reginald Dyer ordered to shoot at the unarmed, innocent public. 

Some people had gathered there for Baisakhi, some people had come to visit or were going to visit Harminder Sahib Gurudwara; some farmers and traders had come from the annual Baisakhi horse and cattle fair which was suddenly closed at 2:30 pm that day; yet some were there to peacefully protest against the Rowlatt Act and the arrest and deportation of Satya Pal and Dr. Saifuddin Kitchlew. 

The troops came in through the narrow entrance, blocked that sole entrance available to the park, they fired without a warning to disperse, they fired indiscriminately. The park has a 10 feet wall all around and there was no way to escape. Men and women ran all over to save themselves from the bullets. Some of them even jumped into the well dug inside the park. The merciless firing continued for full ten minutes, till their ammunition exhausted, it was 1650 rounds fired, as Dyer stated the very next day. “ I shot and shot till I ran short of ammunition,” bragged Brigadier-General Reginald Dyer, the arch criminal, in his evidence before the Hunter Committee. [The Pen as my Sword by K. Rama Rao]
About 400 killed and more than 1200 people injured was the official count the very next day, whereas in reality the count was much more. In those ten minutes, according to the estimates of the Congress, about a thousand persons were killed and about 2000 wounded. So many men, women and children jumped into the well to save themselves from the bullets. There was no way the exact counting of the bodies could be done, so many were dragged out of the well, which was later named ‘Martyr’s well’. 

Dyer had come with a group of ninety soldiers mainly from the Gurkha Rifles. They were armed with guns and rained fire on the unarmed people. 

It was only a few years back when I visited Amritsar, had gone to see Jallianwala, the living proof of the cruelty meted out to Indians. The bullet marks are still there on the walls. The well is very much there. 

No one is there to tell us the ghastly story of that day first hand, but there are families of the people who had passed away in the shooting, also families of people who had been injured and lived to pass on the tale. 

Commenting on the happenings in Punjab in the summer of 1919, Sir Stanley Reed, the then editor, wrote that every English man was ashamed of the deeds of Gen. Reginald Dyer at Amritsar. [The Pen as my Sword by K. Rama Rao] 

This was not the end. Soon after, martial law was enforced on 16 Apr 1919. As if this madness was not enough, to the utter humiliation of Indians, the ‘Crawling order’ was issued in Kucha Kaurianwala, according to which everyone was forced to crawl in that lane because a British missionary teacher Miss Marcella Sherwood had been attacked in that lane on 10 April 1919.
With the order passed, people who lived there had no choice but to go to their homes crawling. Even going on hands and knees was not allowed, one just had to crawl on the belly in that 150 yard portion of Kucha Kaurianwala. Sweepers stopped entering the street. In that dirt, filth and garbage, people had to crawl. On both the sides of the lane, place for flogging was made. The policemen were merciless. The order lasted for eight days.
And why was the crawling order passed, to that Dyer replied to Hunter commission that he felt that was a suitable punishment for a British woman had been beaten there.
Let us look at the horoscope of the day at 17:37 which is considered to be the time when the shooting started. 

Kanya lagna rising with Moon in lagna; lagna lord Mercury retrograde, combust and debilitated,  conjunct with Sun in the 7H. Sun at gandanta was to change rashi in a few hours. 

Mars was placed in 8H of grief. Mars in the 8H was in mutual aspect with retrograde Saturn; whereby both had the vicious lordship of the 6 and 8 houses making the mutual aspect very dangerous. Saturn is the planet indicating masses and Mars is ‘Jallade falak’, the killer. 

There is an exchange between Mercury and Jupiter that is, between LL (cum 10L) and 7L.

Remember Varahmihira gave Makar lagna to India. From Makar, lagna lord Saturn and 7H from Makar was terribly afflicted leading to dire killings. 

In Rashi Sanghatta chakra, Mars was in vedha with Rahu, Sun and lagna lord Mercury.

It was after this ghastly day that the fight for independence took a deeper turn. India had had enough. Four planets in sarp drekkana had given enough wrath and aggression in the minds of Indians, the real fight for freedom started and India got freedom after 28 years.
