As taken from Wikipedia Article:

Z (named zed /zɛd/ or zee /ziː/[1]) is the 26th and final letter of the modern English alphabet and the ISO basic Latin alphabet.

Name and pronunciation

In most English-speaking countries, including the United Kingdom, Canada, India, Ireland, New Zealand, and Australia, the letter's name is zed /zɛd/, reflecting its derivation from the Greek zeta (this dates to Latin, which borrowed X, Y, and Z from Greek, along with their names), but in American English its name is zee /ziː/, analogous to the names for B, C, D, etc., and deriving from a late 17th-century English dialectal form.

The shape, durability and quality of a pot are entirely dependent on the skill and the creativity of the potter.

Jijau may be the only woman in the history of mankind who decided the purpose of her child even before he was born.

Jijau told Shivaji the tales of King Ram, Krishna, Bheem etc. fighting the injustice and freeing of people from tyranny. These stories made Shivaji Raje that freedom was the only path and that is the only purpose of his life.

Jijau carried out both the roles of an affectionate mother as well as giving aptitude for accomplishments as a father in his absence.
Only due to training from Jijau, Shivaji Raje could vanquish the centuries of Muslim rule and establish Hindavi Swarajya.

July 5: Salutes to brave and fearless soldiers of Azad Hind Fauj on its 'Foundation Day' !


The pitiable state of the descendents of
Azad Hind Sena's soldiers due to negligence by Congress !

Thousands of brave men and women rose to Netaji Subhashchandra Bose's call to take up arms against the British and joined the Azad Hind Sena. They gave up everything they had, all their comforts, their families so that they could fight against the British forces and get India her freedom. But the very same soldiers and their descendents live in pitiable penury, as refugees in Myanmar (formerly Burma). Close to 4 lakh people of Indian origin have been denied citizenship there. Neither are they allowed to obtain jobs, nor buy or sell land! They cannot even travel freely within Myanmar! They always have to carry a 'registered foreigner permit' on them and even shell out money to have it renewed each year. These people sacrificed everything to ensure that we live in a free India, does the Government of India have no obligation to them?

Source : Dharmayudha Monthly Writer : Shri Ravindra Porval

(Post independence, instead of honoring Netaji Subhashchandra Bose and his Azad Hind Sena, the Gandhi-Nehruvian Congress completely scorned them ! This negligent behavior has resulted in the descendents of these brave soldiers having to live as destitutes ! People, you have the right to question the Congress! Ask them why they exhibit so much hatred towards the freedom fighters ! - Editor, Dainik Sanatan Prabhat)
