Another Independence Day!

Another Independence Day,

has come and Gone!patel and Gandhi

Millions of Indians all over the World celeberated this day,

unfurling their National Flag…

Not knowing,one Pingala Venkayya from Andhra Designed this

in 1931!

He was a Geologist and expert in Agriculture too!

Pingala Vekayya

Pingala Vekayya

For such an honour,he was never recognised even after Independence,

He died due to poor health and poverty,unable too meet his Medical Bills,

in 1963!

Another man ,VO Chidambaram Pillai..

today,you dont have money even to buy a Scooter..

But in 1910,VOC bought a ship and competed with British in Shipping..

so wealthy a man!

Joined the Independence Movement..

Suffered torture unbearable in the Jail!

Became a Pauper..

wrote in his diary to whom all he owed while dying!

He named his last son as Walleswaran,in honour of a British Judge,

By name Wallace,who allowed him to practise,after his release.

Walleswaran and his wife and son Chidambram are still alive

in Madurai..

in abject poverty!

Oh God!

Such Shames can happen only in India!

Lets learn to honour the real Thyagis!

Sathyameva Jayathe!
