Our Nation’s role in liberation of Israel

Haifa Day

It was on 23rd September 1918 at First World War. Haifa is a medium city in Israel, on its northern part, at the seashore of eastern part of Mediterranean Sea. Then, the whole of this land was under the control of Ottoman Empire of Turkey. Turkey, Austria, Hungary and Germany were collectively known as Central Powers who fought unitedly against the Allies. Britain was a partner in Allies. Then, Britain decided to attack Ottoman Empire at Haifa city. In the Royal Indian Army which was involved in this attack, there were three divisions. They were Jodhpur Lancers, Mysore Lancers and Hyderabad forces. All these three were princely states in Our Nation at that time. Mysore Lancers cleared the rocky slopes of Mount Carmel, Jodhpur Lancers charged through the defile and riding over the enemy’s machine guns, galloped into Haifa. Jodhpur Lancers were tasked to capture this position and Mysore Lancers were tasked to move around to attack Haifa from east and north. Three cavalry regiments of the three princely states i.e. Jodhpur, Mysore and  Hyderabad, escorted the prisoners of war.

In this battle, the most important role was played by Colonel Thakur Dalpat Singh Shekhawat of Jodhpur Lancers, whose gallantry attack, courage, velour and war planing resulted in the capture of Haifa from Ottoman Empire. Hence, he was awarded with Military Cross, the then higher military award. Thus, Haifa was the first part to be liberated in the history of formation of the Nation called Israel. Thus, in the creation of Israel, these three princely states of our Nation played a major and pioneering role.

The municipality of Haifa city has gone ahead with its decision to immortalize the sacrifices made by our Nation’s soldiers. The incidents of our soldiers valiant efforts in liberating Haifa are included in the school curricula as part of the history text books. Haifa Historical Society has done an extensive research on the role of our Nation’s army in liberating Haifa. Residents of Israeli Haifa, celebrate 23 red September as Haifa day with a series of cultural programs during that week. Consulate General of Israel in Bengaluru paid tributes at the memorial of Mysore Lancers at Bengaluru, on the 96th year. Our Army commemorates September 23rd every year as Haifa Day, to pay its respects to our brave Cavalry Regiments that helped to liberate Haifa city in 1918, following a dashing cavalry action by 15th Imperial Service Cavalry Brigade. The centenary (100th year) celebrations were culminated with a grand function by our Army at New Delhi on 23rd September 2018. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on his visit to Israel, visited Haifa Memorial and paid homage to our soldiers who fought in World War 1. Our Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu paid tributes to our brave soldiers who fought at Haifa. They attended the ceremony at Teen Murti Memorial at New Delhi  and on that occasion, Teen Murti Chowk was renamed as Teen Murti Haifa Chowk. The Chowk is 4 road junction at which a statue structure was erected soon after the the Haifa victory, depicting three soldiers on three sides of the structure. These three soldiers represent Jodhpur Lancers, Mysore Lancers and Hyderabad forces. In the same way Teen Murti Bhavan also constructed which later became the residence of our then Prime Minister.

Thus in the liberation of Israel, the role played by our army is the turning point and altered the history at this area of land. Our soldiers’ pioneering role is great and should be remembered with much respect.


Chatrapathi Sivaji and Vietnam

There are interesting narrations one can find through internet about the link of life history and the warefare techniques of Chatrapathi Sivaji and the tiny Vietnam’s victory in its freedom war against the mighty United States of America (U.S.A.). Since these narrations described the incidences that occurred in 1970s, it is difficult to prove the veracity of these narrations, but one can understand and accept the ring of truth in these narrations.

The foreign Minister of Provisional Revolutionary Government of South Vietnam, Madam Nguyen Thi Binh came to our Nation in May 1976. During this visit, she garlanded the statue of Chatrapathi Sivaji. Then she went to Raigad, Maharashtra state. At Raigad fort she worshipped the Samadhi of Chatrapathi Sivaji and applied the bit of soil of Samadhi over her forehead with much respect. Then she collected a little bit of soil of Samadhi and put it in her bag. When asked about the reasons for her actions, she mentioned that the life history and war techniques of Chatrapathi Sivaji was the sole inspirational and guiding force that lead to the victory of  Vietnam against U.S.A. Thus, the sole purpose of her Visit was to show the gratitude and respect of Vietnam towards Chatrapathi Sivaji. She further added that she was going to sprinkle the soil collected at Samadhi over the soil of Vietnam, so that  Chatrapathi Sivaji like great personalities would be born in Vietnam also. Madam Binh later become Education Minister of Socialist Republic of Vietnam in June 1976 and Vice President in 2002.

The President of Vietnam, when he started Vietnam’s freedom war against U.S.A.,  happened to read the life history of Chatrapathi Sivaji. It gave him the much needed confidence, inspiration, War planning and tactics. He studied and admired how Chatrapathi Sivaji won the large armies of his enemies with his small and tiny army, by following excellent war techniques and tactics. Chatrapathi Sivaji used guerrilla warfare and many other war techniques and achieved great victories in all the 270 wars he fought. This give the President to chart out his plans and fighting method, which ultimately lead to Vietnam’s victory over U.S.A. The President instructed to inscribe the following line on his grave, “Here rests a mavala of Chatrapathi Sivaji”. Mavala means an ordinary soldier. The President even told that if Chatrapathi Sivaji had been born in Vietnam, Vietnam would have conquered the whole world.

Rifleman Jaswant Singh Rawat

Battle of Nuranang 4th  Battalion of Garwal Rifles

17th November 1962

Jaswant Singh Rawat, Lanes Naik Trilok Singh and RFN Gopal Singh Gusain crawled for 12 meters, throw grenades at Chinese bunkers, captured China’s Medium Machine Gun (MMG), fired at Chinese army with China’s MMG itself and inflicted heavy causalities on Chinese side. On that day our Army ordered to withdraw from that post. However Jaswant Singh Rawat stayed back and climbed a mountain of 10000 feet height and there installed many guns at constant distance. With the Monpa tribal girls Sela and Nura supplying ammunition, Rawat loaded the guns and fired at Chinese stations consistently passing from 1st to 2nd and like that to the last gun and returning in reverse order to 1st gun again. Thus, there was  a constant and consistent firing. It continued for three days both day and night fully without any gap. Thus, Chinese army thought that there was a Bharatian army battalion with high number.

Hence they stayed back without advancing. However, they suffered heavy causalities. Without eating properly and not at all sleeping, Rawat and the two girls worked hard for 3 days and stopped the advancement of Chinese army and at the same time inflicting heavy damage on them. On 3rd day Chinese army captured a villager who supplied food to these three and knew the fact. The got angry, came to the working spot of Rawat and tortured Nura. Seeing this, Sela climbed a peak and jumped into the below pass and died. That mountain and pass are named after her. Rawat shot himself. However Chinese army severed his head and taken away with them. On this day, (20th November 1962) China declared unilateral ceasefire and they returned Brass bust of Jaswant singh, feeling for their inhuman act and appreciating the braveness of Rawat. This was installed at a house named as Jaswant Garh and was worshiped as temple even now by the locals and our Army persons. He became a saint.

Army persons even now believe that he is serving our Nation and guiding them properly, when they miss directions. He was supplied tea and food regularly, his clothes were washed daily and shoes were polished which were on the next day morning seems to be with snow and dust, causing us to think that he had gone for night rounds. He was given regular promotions and leave also. Any army officer crossing Jaswant Garh used to salute him. Army people are believing that Jaswant Singh Rawat still serving our Motherland and safeguarding our territory. It is a known fact that his spirit still protects this Sela pass.

Rifleman Jaswant Singh Rawat still protects and guards our Beloved Motherland Bharat, even after death.

Heliocentric Concept in Retrograde Motion of Planets

The retrograde motion of planets is a unique feature of our Bhratian Astronomy, Astrology and
Almanacs. These texts describe that Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and the Saturn have retrograde motion, an apparent backward motion of these planets with respect to the fixed stars of the sky, on observed from the Earth. If analysed in depth, this retrograde motion of these planets, confirm that our Bhratian Astronomy is correctly based on Heliocentric concept only.
