Q.

Bandra-Worli Sea link was proposed to be named after the forgetten national hero VEER SAVARKAR but named after Rajiv Gandhi. Recently, I visited Port Blair, went to cellular jail,n,realised theimportance of the role of Veer Savarkar ,n,his brother Gopal in the freedom movement.The change in the Govt led to change in the name ! I feel there is too much politics in our country,n, too much,n,too many dedication OF SUCH PROJECTS to Nehru-Gandhi family is not at all OK !

In a country,where the living self proclaimed greats...like mayawati ,karunanidhi,devi lal,jayalalitha etc. exist...such political stunt is no big a deal Umesh,trust me... Heroes ,the real heroes of this nation never truly got their due...a Mayawati spends 1000 crores on creating parks ,dedicated to her and her guru kanshiram...in a state which is struggling with major deficits,power crisis,poverty and lack of proper basic ameneties... and the real heroes lie in the course books ,in the story books,oft ignored on the book shelves,when harry potters,hannah montanas are preferred anydays....not just by the kids,but also by the parents,who take pride in the westernization of lifestyle and prefer to be socially known for their \"modern outlook\". You have raised such an important issue,which needs to be taken up nationally. We just cant be mere spectators to such political gimmicks...Veer Sawarkar,Shaheed Bhagat Singh,Chandra Shekhar Azad,Sukhdev,Lala Lajpar Rai,Sardar Va ...more
