Indian History Not told factually
I received this historical account from my source and it is an untold, unknown account of Indian history recorded by very prominent personalities working closely with Pandit Nehru, Sardar Patel and Mahatma Gandhi in Congress.
I am pleased to share this information with all my readers here.
I am pleased to share this information with all my readers here.
I am of a view, many historical facts during Independence struggle, and post Independence ,about political developments between political class as well freedom fighters who actually contributed largely for the independence of India and were responsible to shape the Indian map, are factually not known.
Thanks to internet technology which has created the powerful information media for many to publish information that was difficult to access unless published in the form of a book. Today email has become the fastest medium of sharing all information with the world.
The following historical account recorded did not get the due recognition it deserved. It is a historical chronicle of pre-and post independent India.
Truth must be told. Truth has its own way to surface, however some try their best to hide it dishonestly. And history particularly can be written from many perspectives by giving it a spin, if one wants to distort it .Today that is exactly what is happening in Indian politics. Indians are misinformed and misled by giving fabricated historical accounts.
Dishonest Congressmen today are trying to re-write our history to paint Nehru Gandhi family as the only contributors for the independence of India. Congress also is trying to paint RSS Black with distorted history. Today, they are trying their best to paint Narendra Modi as fascist, divisive and communal because it suits their vote bank politics.
But I am glad, Congress dishonesty day by day is getting exposed. The loyalists of Dynasty and the sycophants who are promoting Dynasty Rule in Indian politics are fortunately getting exposed and dynasty is coming to an end. 2014 election results have proved that. People of India are in no mood to encourage Dynastic politics and one family rule.
It is rejected with overwhelming mandate given by the people. You can learn a lot from the history and the following historical account will surprise you all and also shock you to learn few historical facts. They may not be palatable for few but facts are facts and factual history must be known to all.
Read it and share your views. Also share the information with your all contacts so that historical truth is known to Indians.

"You are a complete communalist and I'll never be a party to your suggestions and proposals," Nehru shouted at Patel during a crucial Cabinet meeting to discuss the liberation of Hyderabad by the Army from the tyranny of the Razakkars, the then Nizam's private army.
"A shocked Sardar Patel collected his papers from the table and slowly walked out of the Cabinet room. That was the last time Patel attended a Cabinet meeting.
He also stopped speaking to Nehru since then," writes MKK Nair, a 1947 batch IAS officer, in his memoirs "With No Ill Feeling to Anybody". Nair had close ties with both Sardar and VP Menon, his Man Friday.
Though Nair has not written the exact date of the above mentioned Cabinet meeting, it could have happened during the weeks prior to the liberation of Hyderabad by the Indian Army. Operation Polo, the mission to liberate Hyderabad from the Nizam, began on September 13, 1948 and culminated on September 18.
While Sardar Patel wanted direct military action to liberate Hyderabad from the rape and mayhem perpetrated by the 2,00,000 Razakars, Nehru preferred the United Nations route.
Nair writes that Nehru's personal hatred for Sardar Patel came out in the open on December 15, 1950, the day the Sardar breathed his last in Bombay (now Mumbai).
"Immediately after he got the news about Sardar Patel's death, Nehru sent two notes to the Ministry of States. The notes reached VP Menon, the then Secretary to the Ministry. In one of the notes, Nehru had asked Menon to send the official Cadillac car used by Sardar Patel to the former's office. The second note was shocking. Nehru wanted government secretaries desirous of attending Sardar Patel's last rites to do so at their own personal expenses.
"But Menon convened a meeting of all secretaries and asked them to furnish the names of those who want to attend the last rites of Patel. He did not mention anything about the note sent by Nehru.
Menon paid the entire cost of the air tickets for those secretaries who expressed their wish to attend Sardar's last journey. This further infuriated Nehru," Nair has written about his memoirs in the corridors of power in New Delhi.
Nair's friendship with Patel began during the former's posting in Hyderabad as a civilian officer of the Army. "I was a bachelor and my guest house was a rendezvous of all those in the inner circle of the then Nizam of Hyderabad.
Every night they arrived with bundles of currency notes. We gambled and played flash and the stakes were high. During the game I served them the finest Scotch. After a couple of drinks, the princes and the junior Nawabs would open their minds and reveal the secret action plans being drawn out in the Nizam's palace. Once intoxicated, they would tell me about the plans to merge Hyderabad with Pakistan after independence.
This was information that no one outside the Nawab's close family members and the British secret service were privy to. But I ensured that this information reached directly to Sardar Patel and thus grew our relation," writes Nair.
The relation between Nair and Sardar Patel was such that the former's director general in the ministry told him once: "Sardar Patel keeps an open house for you." Nair, who worked in various ministries during his three-decade long civil service career, writes that the formation of North East Frontier Service under the Ministry of External Affairs by Nehru and the removal of the affairs of the Jammu & Kashmir from the Ministry of Home Affairs are the major reasons behind the turmoil in both the regions.
"This was done by Nehru to curtail the wings of Sardar Patel," Nair has written. Though Sardar Patel was known as a no-nonsense man devoid of any sense of humour, Nair has written about lighter moments featuring him. The one centres around VP Menon with whom Patel had a special relation. Menon had to face ire of Nesamani Nadar, a Congress MP from Kanyakumari, during his visit to Thiruvananthapuram in connection with the reorganisation of States. Nadar barged into Menon's suite in the State Gust House and shouted at him for not obeying his diktats. Menon, who was enjoying his quota of sun-downer, asked Nadar to get out of his room. A furious Nadar sent a six-page letter to Sardar Patel trading all kinds of charges against Menon.
"He was fully drunk when I went to meet him in the evening and he abused me using the filthiest of languages," complained Nadar in his letter.
Sardar Patel, who read the letter in full asked his secretary V Shankar, an ICS officer: "Shankar, does VP take drinks?" Shankar, who was embarrassed by the question, had to spill the beans.
"Sir, Menon takes a couple of drinks in the evening," he said. Sardar was curious to know what was Menon's favourite drink. Shankar replied that Menon preferred only Scotch.
"Shankar, you instruct all government secretaries to take Scotch in the evening," Sardar told Shankar.
Nair writes that this anecdote was a rave in the Delhi evenings for a number of years!
Balraj Krishna (92), who authored Sardar's biography, told The Pioneer that Nehru was opposed to Babu Rajendra Prasad, the then President, travelling to Bombay to pay his last respects to Patel. "But Prasad insisted and made it to Bombay," said Krishna. MV Kamath, senior journalist, said though Nehru too attended the funeral of Patel, it was C Rajagopalachari, who delivered the funeral oration.
Prof MGS Narayanan, former chairman of Indian Council of Historical Research, said there was no reason to disbelieve what Nair has written.
"But his memoirs did not get the due recognition it deserved. It is a historical chronicle of pre-and post independent India," he said.....
.....IF only Sardar had become PM, as per the votes of CWC, and Gandhi had not dissuaded him, in favour of a sulking Nehru..many of the country's problems would never have seen the day.....!!
