Tatya Tope Dynasty vs Nehru Gandhi Dynasty

Tatya Tope was hanged by Briitishers so his family members are now struggling to feed their stomach by breads. His heir residing in Kanpur could not get pention even after giving the bribe. Due to the poverty daughters could not get higher education. Union State Home Minister represents Knapur. His cheeks are red as grape wine. Even Antonia Maino of Italy came in India and became Sonia Gandhi to rule India from the back door.

We have celebrated the 150th anniversary of the first freedom war. Tarun Vijay rightly wrote in TO: It's a shame to see how the 1857 150th anniversary has been turned into a sham sarkari jholawala function devoid of any life and vibrancy. In fact in the whole melee Richard Gere and Shilpa Shetty got more coverage than the revolutionaries whose martyrdom we were supposed to recollect and tell our children "look this is how we got our Independence".

Veer Savarkar was sent to kalapani so his IITian kin is spending life on road. Mughal begum, Lives in penury in a slum. Beyond Nehru Gandhi dynasty no India is for Congress. Lal Bahadur Shstri was done with in 13 months which Nehru could not do with in 13 years of his rule. Original Gandhi Mahatma was mahatma, so not a single member of his family is in the parliament.Where are heirs of Subhash, Tilak, Bhagat Singh?

Motilal Nehru was elected as Congress President in 1919 and 1920. When in 1929, Nehru handed over the Congress presidency to Jawaharlal (Jawaharlal was elected, with Gandhi's backing), Thus Congress has been controlled by Rahul's family for most of the past 90 years. In this way Congress which born by a foreigner is not only gone in a foreign hand again now but also it is again be made the property of them after the humiliation of Sitaram Kesari, which must be called the black day of the Congress history.

Great gathering of relatives of Martyr Tatya Tope in Shivpuri of MP

"Sahidon ki chitaon per lagenge har baras mele,

Vatan pe mitne walon kaa yahi baaki nishan hoga"

Commander of first Independence war of India 1857 Ramchandra Pandurang Yolekar Allias Tatya Tope's death anniversary was celebrated this time on 18 April at Shivpuri. Relatives of these martyrs were present on the place were Tatya Tope was hanged.

About 150 members of Tope from American city Sanfrancisco to Delhi and Yoela of Maharastra were present.

Rajesh Tope, Grand grand son of Tatya Tope showed an old photo of Tatya and said that before 75 years this type of family gathering was held in Yoela which was the birth place of Ramchandra Pandurang Yolekar.

One eldest member of the family Balchand Shankar says that- "British Army harassed in such a way that many members of the family were changed their names and professions. Women begin to wear dresses like Muslim women instead of Marathi."

Family of Balchand Shankar was living in Gwalior at that time. These families faced threat not only from British, but also from Raja Maan Singh of Narwar who betrayed Tatya Tope to handover him to the Britisher.

On 18 April 1859 Tatya Tope was hanged in Shivpuri prison barrack no. 4.
In this occasion family members of Rani Laxmi Bai, Nana Shaheb and other Martyrs besides the Tatya Tope's family members were also present.

"Goli se fansi tak jwala aaj dhadhakti jati hai,
Desh pe mitnewalon ki soee yaad jagati hai,
Veeron ki quarbani ne bharat kaa nakasha khincha hai,
Hansate Hansate apne khoon se is gulshan ko seencha hai,
Khandit na ho Naksha e Gulshan aaj tuje chetati hai,
Goli se fansi tak jwala aaj dhadhakti jati hai,"


Tatya Tope also known as Ram Chandra Pandurang was born in 1814 at village Gola in Maharashtra. His father, Pandurang Rao Tope was an important noble at the court of the Peshwa Baji Rao-II. He shifted his family with the ill-fated Peshwa to Bithur where his son became the most intimate friend of the Peshwa's adopted son, Nana Dhundu Pant, known as Nana Saheb.

In 1851, when Lord Dalhousie deprived Nana Saheb of his father's pension, Tatya Tope also became a sworn enemy of the British. In May 1857, when the political storm was gaining momentum, he won over the Indian troops of the East India Company, stationed at Kanpur, established Nana Saheb's authority and became the Commander-in-Chief of his revolutionary forces.

After the reoccupation of Kanpur and separatoni from Nana Saheb, Tatya Tope shifted his headquarters to Kalpi to join hands with Rani Lakshmi Bai and led a revolt in Bundelkhand. He was routed at Betwa, Koonch, and Kalpi, but reached Gwalior and declared Nana Saheb as Peshwa with the support of the Gwalior contingent. Before he could consolidate his position he was defeated by General Rose in a memorable battle in which Rani Lakshmi Bai suffered martyrdom.

After losing Gwalior to the British, he launched a successful guerilla campaign in the Sagar and Narmada regions and in Khandesh and Rajasthan. The British forces failed to subdue him for over a year. He was, however, betrayed into the hands of the British by his trusted friend Man Singh, Chief of Narwar, while asleep in his camp in the Paron forest. He was captured and taken to Sipri where he was tried by a military court and executed at the gallows on April 18, 1859.

He admitted boldly in the court on April 7, 1859 "What he did, was for his own motherland and he was no regrets"

Hear the alarming sorrow lives of the Topes of Bithur of Kanpur

Kanpur: Ramchandra Pandurang popularily known as Tatya Tope was an able great leader of the First War of Freedom of 1857 which was fought by Hindu Muslim and others jointly. His heirs of Kanpur are in the struggle of getting bread selling turmeric, chilly and salt. We read in the books and internet Taya Tope as a great martyr with long moustache and attractive personality. But the fact is that his heir in the village Bethur of Dist Kanpur sells kirana items in a little shop to earn hardly their livelihood. No one is in India to care for them.

Vinayak Tope of the third generation is in Bithur. His wife Saraswati devi said that after giving bribe of Rs 500 pention was approved in 1995 but useless. Uptill now pention has not been started to give them. Along with her two daughters Pragati and Pravriti, son Ashutosh and husband Vinayak Rao Tope, Sarswati is living in the lavkush nagar of Bithur. They open a little kirana shop in the Jan of the year 2006. Before this They could harldy get food by the dakshina which Vanayak tope would get against the competion of the religious ceremony of the 'jajmans' clients.

Daughter Pragati is a teacher in the local LaxmiBaiSchool on the salary of only Rs 600/- per month. Her elder graduate sister is still unemployed and achelor. Brother Ashutosh is the student of Intermediate. Brother and sister are worried for the marriage of their elder sister. Sarladevi is panic to say that her daughtes and son could not get higher education due the weak financial position.

Local residentials and historians say that Britishers saw Tope in such enemity that they play bloody game in the Bithur in 1857 and because of that Bithur the population of 48,000 remained with the 3000 population at that time. They became lucky because Britishers eyes could not reach upon them.

Shivnath Jha said...

We-Neena Jha and Shivnath Jha - have launched a nationwide movement "andolan ek pustak se" to protect musicians, academicians, artists and others who have brought laurels and pride to the nation.
As a post-graduate student of the famed Patna University in Bihar, Shivnath Jha paddled through Patna’s streets for over eight years, beginning 1968, to deliver newspapers from house to house right from the daybreak before he joined as copy-holder at a Patna-based newspaper The Indian Nation in 1975 soon after he did his matriculation from Bihar School Examination Board to earn bread for his parents, brothers and sisters.
Born in a Maithil Brahmin family in Darbhanga district of Bihar, he shed all pretensions and set out on to the path of knowledge and modern learning. Once he tasted journalism in Bihar, it did not take long to turn out to be an addiction.
Any reference to Shivnath shall remain far from being complete in case his association with the late Ustad Bismillah Khan is missed. Towards the last years of the life of the great Shehnai maestro Shivnath brought out a monograph on the life and times of the Ustadji in order to help him through its proceeds. This Jha had done in the wake of public appeal for assistance made by such a legend of Indian classical music amid his declining health and reducing circumstances. In the noble endeavor that was greatly appreciated by the late Ustadji Shivnath was actively supported and helped by Neena Jha, his wife, who co-authored the monograph with him. This was followed by publication of another book – India calling – to commemorate India entering into 60th year of Independence and also a tribute to the great Ustad. It was for the first time in the post-independence era when India observed its Republic Day with the Ustad.
Press Trust of India (PTI) in Ustad’s National Obituary said:
“Four years ago, when the Ustad did not have money and resources to meet the cost of his needs, the then government arranged for his performance at Parliament Annexe, where Khan Sahib had to virtually give a charity show for his own benefit.
It was then that Neena and Shivnath Jha, who had launched a programme to protect musicians, academicians and artists who brought pride and laurels to the nation, thought of bringing out a monograph on the life and art of the Ustad to extend financial support to him.
Their movement gained a victory of sorts after the Ministry of Home Affairs, Government of India allowed the Jha couple to invite the Ustad to play 'Tune India' from the India Gate to pay tribute to the 'unsung heroes of World War-I and for the global peace and security' and fulfill his last wish. But the fate did not allow the Ustad despite extension of the programme thrice.”
We wish to extend our support to the family members of the great leader. We are going to meet the family and also have written letter to the Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh and the Union Minister for Home Affairs Shivraj Patil and Union Minister of state for Home Affairs Sriprakash Jaiswal to come forward for their support and rescue.

We are going to highlight the entire story in national media - both print and electronic - to attract the government and others for their rescue. We appeal you all to find out such families across the country so that we could be able to reach at their door steps. Neena Jha and Shivnath Jha, Bismillah:The Beginning Foundation, SRB-124D, Shipra Reveira, Gyan Khand-III, Indirapuram, Ghaziabad. Mobile:9810246536/
