Jallianwala Bagh

This is a public Park in Amritsar, Punjab and is a symbol of Independence and tragedies related to it. Once it so happened that a British Lady named Marshella was cornered by an Indian mob and beaten up. She was rescued by a man who was the father of her pupil. Hearing this General Dyer issued an order that every Indian had to cover the distance by crawling and the English officers could shoot and hit any Indian whom they saw. To protest against this, around 15000 men, women and children gathered in the Jallianwala Bagh and were protesting peacefully. After around an hour General Dyer and his army blocked all the exit ways of the park and ordered random shooting resulting which thousands of men and women died. This was one of the most tragic massacres of the Indian History. A memorial to honor those who died in this incident is made over here with a lamp which burns 24 hours. There is lush greenery in this park with a number of flowering plants as well.
I moved to Jalianwala Bagh the same place where humanity died on 13 April, 1919. Such a paradox a place where huminty is above all and where General dayar mascarred huminty by killing as much he can kill at the site by open firing at gathered peaceful group of people on the occasion of Baisakhi.

Golden Temple and the Jallianwala Bagh are located in the vicinity of each other. Jallianwala Bagh is now a public park where l see the bullet marks on wall are still visible and tell the tales of tragedies these walls have witnesses. At the same time, it made me feel proud as after so much sufferings, our freedom fighters never gave up. Its a place full of patriotic vibes and one should not miss it. Also, outside the place, the local market is amazing, especially for girls, and one can find everything from Fulkari Duppatta to Desi Punjabi Juttiya or the Pakistani traditional footwear with all the bling and dazzle.In such an amazing weather, an evening walk in the market near Golden Temple is a bliss.

A visit to Jallianwala BaghWe've all heard the story one time too many. Located in the vicinity of the Golden Temple, Jallianwala Bagh is yet another horrifying chapter in Indian history. While the former is an epitome of faith, the latter is a not-so-pleasant lesson in how reckless hate of a few citizens can scar an entire nation. What transpired on the day of April 13, 1919, on the festival of Baisakhi, can still be seen in the bullet holes and the well into which many jumped to avoid facing the unprovoked fire. There's also the eternal flame, remembering the victims and martyrs of India's freedom struggle.
