I Remember

I remember

The day India became independent,  at the age of 7 I roamed in the streets of Vizag wearing a tricolour flag along with my friends..

The day Gandhi was killed and the Whole nation wept…

I remember the republic day on which I could not participate in the school ( ULCM at Rajamundry) function being down with dysentery…

I remember the day Potti Sriramulu died and days of agitation that followed , how we were excited and also scared of the iron topi wearing Malabar police deployed by the government…

I remember the Goa liberation agitation I lead with Jogaih Pantulu when at Mrs AVN College..

I remember myself and Vittal Rao Fasting on the Indian Institute of science campus against the domination Of Hindi over the other languages in 1964…

I remember the days of blackouts during Pakistan war 1965

I remember my father sending me a telegram during emergency asking me if I am out or in ( JAIL)…

I remember myself and U.R. Prasad standing in the ques at malleswaram booth in Bangalore to vote for K.S. Hegde in the general election after emergency before it opened so that no one else could cast our votes… (1977)

I remember leading an agitation at IISc against mighty Satish Dhawan for quarters for faculty by simply skipping the official lunch and winning the point…

I wish the younger generation will fight for their future and against corruption. 

I  do not want to remember some time in future, Anna Hazaare’s agitation, against corruption in which I have not participated.
