An Indian Civilizational Perspective

HEY RAM – Gandhi NEVER said it!!

This is something that was brought out in a play on Nathuram Godse which was based on the version of Gopal Godse – his brother.  Even Gopal Godse had been arrested on the charge that he was involved in the assassination.  When the play came out.. as is the wont of the “oh-so-secular-intellectuals” – it was termed as the propoganda of the “right-wing” fundamentalists!

This guy now happens to be Gandhi’s OWN assistant!!

The issue is much larger in my view.  If Gandhi indeed never even uttered “Hey Ram” how come all the Gandhians – who swear by fighting for “Truth” and “Honesty” – just kept their trap SHUT!!????

It is time the Congress is pulled up for propogating such blatant farce!!

Mahatma Gandhi did not utter hey Ram when he fell to the bullets of the assassin 58 years ago, Gandhi’s personal assistant Venkita Kalyanam. In fact, he did not utter anything when bullets from Nathuram Godse’s pistol pierced his chest, Kalyanam, who was a witness to the shocking event, told a meet-the-press in Kollam. Kalyanam claimed he was just behind Gandhi when he was shot dead in Delhi on January 30, 1948. 

Eighty-three-year-old Kalyanam, who hails from Thanjavur in Tamil Nadu, said politics in post-Independent India had taken an entirely different turn from what the Mahatma could have wished.

    Must be another M.O. Mathai and can we expect another ‘Reminiscence ‘?
