Some Times By : Santosh Bhatt

My father Mr. AshwinKumar Bhatt was journalist working For today’s Times Of India before it was sold out to khangress a decade ago when emergency was thumped on ordinary citizens of Bharat and their  freedom of speech was compromised. 

On this day at Wee hours of dawn my father was arrested and confined in Sabarmati Jail for 9 months. 

I have seen suffering of first hand pain in my Mom’s eyes. 

Our Education and Social struggle I haven’t written yet but will write a book when I have more time. 

Journalists in India can be subject to intimidation or worse when they stand up for probity. 

These incidents seem ominous when viewed in the backdrop of reminiscences about the darkest hour of Indian democracy –

 The proclamation of Emergency 40 years ago. 

A free media is one of the pillars of democracy.

 Restrictions on media freedom, directly or through roundabout methods, undermine democracy. 

Over the last four decades, platforms through which information is disseminated have undergone radical change. 

They have become diffuse to the point where national boundaries cease to matter. 

Nor is there any need to possess elite techniques or access to financial resources to tap any of these platforms. 

In some fundamental ways, journalism has changed since the Emergency.

I am strong in my above belief of freedom of speech so much that I will defend to death your belief and choice and freedom of speech and would Die doing so. 

That much important I give to mine and yours freedom of Speech. 

I am glade I am living in a free country where I can say anything even to My President and write and feel safe and not intimidated. 

Beta ( Bhautik Bhatt and Vaibhav Bhatt) 

Freedom of speech is very important for your own survival and growth. 

Your Dada (Grand papa ) and hundreds of thousands have sacrificed  a lot and paid heavy price and suffering on self and By theier loved one family members , so people can breath, think and write and speak  their  mind with ought fear and intimidation.

Please never take it lightly.

Remember pain and suffering our family has gone during Emergency.

  1. ON THIS DAY – 25th JUNE 1975

    In India, “the Emergency” a 21-month period in 1975–77 when Prime Minister Indira Gandhi unilaterally had a state of emergency declared across the country. Officially issued by President Fakhruddin Ali Ahmed under Article 352(1) of the Constitution for “internal disturbance”, the Emergency was in effect from 25 June 1975 until its withdrawal on 21 March 1977.
    At the time there was no shortage of sants or mahapurkhs but the only brahmgiani mahapursh nidharak soorbir yodha to challenge the emergency imposed by indiras regime was none other than BRAHMGIANI MAHAPURSH SANT BABA KARTAR SINGH JI KHALSA BHINDRANWALE (13th MUKHI OF DAMDAMI TAKSAL). Sant ji broke all conditions of the emergency by carrying out 37 large processions throughout india waking up the youth and making them realise they are sons of SRI GURU GOBIND SINGH JI MAHARAJ.
    Even today the majority of dusht parcharaks are out in full swing to tarnish damdami taksal but they fail to realise its roots, history and sacrifices for the khalsa nation with over 300 years of solid history not to be messed with. So a word of advice to all the dusht parcharaks – #DAMDAMITAKSALISOUTOFYOURLEAGUE #GIVEITYOURBESTSHOT #DAMDAMITAKSAL #WILLALWAYSBEHERE #STARTEDBYMAHARAJ #ONEANDONLY #ALWAYSATTHEFOREFRONT 🔫🔫🔫🔫🔫🔫🔫🔫💎💎💎💎💎 https://soundcloud.com/jagowalajatha/sant-kartar-singh-ji-khalsa-bhindranwale-1932-1681977
