70 years back to this day .. !!


It was on September 1, 1939, German army opened fire in the Polish port of Gdansk. Ahead of her departure to Gdansk, to mark the 70 th anniversary of the start of WWII, Angela MerkEl, Chancellor of Germany told on German TV, "Germany attacked Poland, Germany started World War II. We caused unending suffering in the world. Sixty million dead ... was the result,".


History if not read. analysed and understood in its entirety by the young generation, may lead to more such blunders in future. Sixty million dead is not a small figure..  


In India, the left led by the 'lone' Marxists and the right led by the RSS and BJP, pursued by dogmatic ideologies pose the greatest threat to the nation, even in the midst of positive trends in growth and development figures released by the Govt.

The most important lesson of all this is, to be on ETERNAL VIGIL !! The most demanding price one has to pay for DEMOCRACY !!

  1. I do agree taht present young generation needs to learn from past history.

    But the question remains how can we make any political impact? After looking at my colleagues, my friends and myself; I do feel that the youth today is much confused. We don't have any direction and are unaware; how can we be affecting the political scenario of our country?
