The building in which the Army Public School Mhow is currently running has a history of its own, while the the historical building of MH Mhow was destroyed it seems the Army school is next . It seems to be an ill faith as for the world the development in taking place but for the books of history a standing legend is falling down.
This building was constructed as a Military Hospital at MHOW (Madhya Pradesh) in 1866, under the British Army. In 1953, it was appropriated as the All Arms Wing of the Army Signal Training School. It later housed the Headquarters of the Army Training Command (HQ ARTRAC) from 1991 to 1994. When ARTRAC moved to Shimla, the Army School at Mhow (now Army Public School) was then housed in this magnificent heritage building, since 1994, and still functions from there, till date. The Army has decided to demolish this heritage structure, on the grounds that its general maintenance is too expensive to sustain. However, as a structure, it has stood the test of time since the last 152 years and will certainly remain structurally strong for at least another century, if not more. It was declared a heritage structure several years ago, but has come up for demolition in the near future. In fact, over the years, crores of Rupees have been spent, in order to keep the building in its pristine glory. Its hard to imagine why the order for its its demolition came up at all. Interestingly, at the main gate entrance to the school, a large hoarding proudly displayed the historical significance and the ‘heritage tag’ of the School building. The hoarding was recently removed, indicating that the end of this heritage building was near. It seems that the pockets of contractors are much more important then the cultural and historical heritage we request that the building be repaired instead of being demolished.
Is this beginning of an era of new dynamic or are the old days coming back? Well, some might call it the Bajpai regime which was of Kashmiriyat or should I say he was the prime minister who was able to connect himself the most to Kashmiri people, none the less one can’t ignore the economic benefits local residents gained from the Kargil war, for potters and drivers with was a treasure hunt a few shared they were paid really high for transporting ration etc. The prolonged militancy seems to mellow down with time but it saw a steep rise from 2014 and it had a new form as I wrote earlier in https://awazthevoice.wordpress.com/2016/05/17/changing-face-of-militancy/ my article changing face of militancy, but what we observe now is a stance of growing aggression from both sides with changing methodologies and increasing bounty on the infiltrators and anti- social elements belonging to the state and many non state actors too.
When I say it is a new era I say it with a belief that the law makers and the security forces have a stronger hand now they a eliminating the terrorist in a planned manner with the arrest of Hurriyat leaders on the behest of Money laundering and the combing up operations along with active encounters is seeming to be a determined view of the Mehbooba Mufti Sayeed government to clear the weeds out of the valley as they are trying to clean the Dal lake, well what needs to noticed is that every terrorist gunned down is giving rise to more and more people pelting stones which need to be looked in by the administration, every time there is an operation a crowd gets active which pelts stones and acts as a hurdle, terrorism is not a law and order problem which was accepted by the whole world which earlier believed that only third world countries were infected by the pest of the genes terrorism.
Yes, there has been an increase in the number of human right violations in J&K but even soldiers are humans where do the so called activist disappear when soldiers are mutilated police men are lynched? Why is Lutens Delhi still silent about the growing number of stone pelters why are pellets still the solution where are the promises of Kashmiri-yat? I leave you here with these questions will be back soon with more on the issue
I am writing this post to unmask a more on who out of failure has insulted the Indian army in various text messages and in groups. I would request you all to report this person for his obnoxious and disrespectful messages regarding the Indian army and the officers of the armed forces ,as per the textual proof this man had given SSB and could not clear it after which he started abusing the armed forces and in specific officers, One of his close relatives is an officer in the Army medical corps.
He says that he had been a scientist with ISRO, He further calls the officers in the armed forces dumb To which I would like to reply in a very simple and sober manner respected Nilesh Sharma you could not Clear SSB which clearly states who did not have the caliber to join the armed forces. Furthermore how many attempts did it take you to join ISRO seeking advice from another man is not being dumb rather it is being sensible to know others method of work and then try and collaborate to get the best out of it.
Second, you said go back officer – go back officer every team needs a leader even sports teams need a captain. the language which you used clearly states you are not meant to be in the army, don’t try and create a propaganda.
I dedicate this article to our brave soldiers, do read and share regards son of a fauji
With the ongoing situation in the country ,it seems as if I have become a no man’s terrorist because I am criticising and writing against fascism in a democratic nation.
It is more like hitting my own self with a hammer. I have started feeling that roots of democracy are becoming stronger as people have started realising that a government machinery is a tool of the Ruling government but people have the power to resist and fight back fascism.
Ongoing fascism is not the same as it use to be before, yes it resembles somewhat to nationalist socialism . What is happening is really bad the student community is being a target for the very reason that they have liberal thinking and want to work towards a progressive socialist society. No man can be denied the very right to dissent and democracy in a secular and sovereign nation like India.There is an ongoing school of thought of HINDU RASHTRA which itself is defying the basic principals of the Indian constitution. Who shall have the right to decide who is nationalist or is anti-national? With terrorism becoming a political toy and peace talks shape of some melodrama I request the government to take up some serious steps to pay tribute to the brave soldiers who are losing their life for their own nation. I feel that more than politicising petty issues the government should take up firm and crisp actions to provide Defense services with more technology and better armour .Every single soldier lost is a loss to the nation. I do not want the soldiers to become a bait to political issues.They die for the nation, they serve the nation, not some political party . Indian army is an apolitical organisation based on the idea of the nation first and so-called nationalist parties should learn from the Indian army about nation first and rest later.
Jai Hind (Hindi: जय हिन्द) is a salutation, slogan, and battle cry most commonly used in India in speeches and communications pertaining to or referring to patriotism towards India (also known as Hind).
Chanting Bharat Mata ki Jai does not count as a certificate for being a nationalist as the largest voluntary army our own Army use the term JAI HIND. As far as records are concerned I have not read that a mere slogan `can make you a national of anti-national. Why can I not be an Indian if I say JAI HIND ? OR INQUILAB ZINDABAD. Mere statements do not make a man national. Why were peace loving citizens beaten up even when they said Jai hind?
Silence amounts to consent. Are you giving your consent to fascism by staying quite?
With more than 20 casualties in past two months, Army has lost many brave hearts. Why is Army being neglected? Even the present budget has shown a decline in the military budget, Why is army being used as a political sepoy there needs to an acclimatisation of needs of the forces , according to the sources from the military even the ration and medical expenses of the army have been cut upon. Garlands will not save lives.
Rather than focusing on materialistic things the parliament shall start focusing on military and social issues. I request the educated class to fight for the rights of the army because The olive greens are bound by a political ethics and are giving selfless service to the nation.
TO EVERY TERROR GROUP IN THE WORLD, IF YOU THINK YOU CAN SCARE US BY YOUR ATTACK THEN REMEBER WE ARE FROM THE LAND OF COURAGE .WE HAVE FOUGHT EVERY TRATOR AND KILLED THEM. WE ARE FROM THE LAND WHICH AT FIRST LOVES AND RESPECTS THE GUEST BUT IF YOU TRY HARMING OUR NATION WE UNITE AND KILL.
WE HAVE THE SECOND LARGEST ARMY IN THE WORLD.IF YOU THINK YOU CAN DIVIDE US ON THE NAME OF CAST AND CREED THEN REMEMBER OUR FREEDOM STRUGGLE WAS FAUGHT TOGETHER AND IN DIWALI THERE IS “Ali” AND IN RAMZAN THERE IS “Ram”. WE ARE CAPABLE OF KICKING THE ASS MISSGUIDED RUTHLESS FASICIST LIKE YOU.
WE ARE THE NATION WHERE ASHWASHQ AND BHAGAT WERE BORN, WE ARE A NATION WERE NANAK AND RAM WERE BORN.WE ARE WORLD LARGEST DEMOCRACY AND OUR NATION IS NOT AFRAID OF SOME DUTCHE BAGS LIKE YOU.
MAY GOD HAVE MERCY ON YOU, BECAUSE IF YOU LOOK AT US OUR ARMY WONT HAVE MERCY ON YOU
Should terror and talks go hand in hand?The answer is a big NO.With 7 more soldiers dead and around 12 injured why are we still thinking of having talks with Pakistan. Mulatini is spoken in Pakistan, calls were made from there. weapons were from Pakistan, what more evidence do we need?
I as the citizen of India first and son of a soldier later. Put this question to the Government, How many more Fathe Singh, How many more Major Thomas.Pakistan needs an answer and we the Indian demand that a firm reply shall be given to the proxy war like elements.
There is no good or bad terrorism lets make it clear terrorism is terrorism. Why are we giving Pakistan a chance and loophole by saying that there are anti-social elements who are disrupting peace talks?What have we gained from talks? There needs to be a strict foreign policy regarding Pakistan.
As a soldier’s son, I felt bad that people from Pakistan are saying on our media channels that our soldier’s were incapable of fighting back.
I wantPeshawar attack when they were unable to save innocent lives.
soldier dies for the motherland and a politician does anything for power but we would not let this happen. There shall be no talks with Pakistan till the time they are funding terror.
According to reports, Nawaz Sharifs election campaign was funded by Osama bin laden, still the generosity of INDIANS gave him another chance. We have tried our best now it is the time that we stop talking to the bunch of cowards who have been using a bunch of drug addict people to kill innocent Indians.
The men of great courage and valour have been proving their love for the nation since time immemerial. 16/12/1971 was one such day when the chief of the Pakistani forces, General Amir Abdullah Khan Niaz, along with 93,000 troops, surrendered to the allied forces consists of Indian Army and Mukti Bahini, led by General Jagjit Singh Aurora.It was the largest surrender in the history.
Global terrorism is extreme both in its lack of realistic goals and in its cynical exploitation of the vulnerability of complex system.No with the on going scenario with Taliban on one hand and Isis on the other. I fail to understand is it fault of religion or religion taken in wrong sense.
Yes i am a kaffir because i do not follow Islam. But it is nowhere written in the holy Quran that kill everyone who is not a muslim. There are peace-loving muslims too.APJ ABDUL KALAM was one of them, why are these separatist making life of common muslims difficult. Terror in any sense is wrong and the only difference between a revolutionary and a terrorist is of emotions and BHAGAT SINGH said no matter how bad thing go we the global citizens should be united against terror.
The best way to perpetuate poverty is by spending on arms and military, and the best way to fight terrorism is by fighting the basic needs of humanity, because hunger and poverty perpetuate crime. Particularly talking about asian nations like Bangladesh,pakistan,Myanmar etc poverty is one major cause of terrorism such nations should unite together for a better future and business opportunities.
What happened in France should be condemned but what happens in India every day should also be condemned whole. I guess world now has realized that terrorism is not just a Law and order situation.
Sir, With due respectIwould like to know your answers to my questions. There has been sudden rise in thecommunalviolence cases after you have taken up as the Prime minister of India.
