brought against Gandhi — why did he not die for the “Akhandata” of Bharat and why did he keep insisting that Pakistan be dealt with humanely Related News I imagine you believe that he was for the most part adored; in fact he was hated and he is still hated today Hatred is still alive in India and he died of it… But the simple fact that he lived according to his own law — which was ascetic and demanding of himself was something people could not tolerate” French writer Hélène Cixous turns to Gandhi to compare his life with the ways of writing that “may hurt may dissatisfy and give the feeling that something is taken away” Gandhi’s life like the rigorous writings of Clarice Lispector Jean Genet or Marina Tsvetaeva was a continuous exercise or struggle to live his life his own way evolve a living principle that unsettled and embarrassed Gandhi’s first test of sacredness was the ability to clean the night soil of others Similarly he befriended the British while fighting against their unjust rule in India reminding them that their stay in India was unethical by their own standards He was a deeply religious man refusing to separate politics from religion and yet imagined a nation not based on the principles of any faith and chose the agnostic if not irreligious Jawaharlal Nehru as his successor For this decision his disciples started hating him secretly He declared that India would be partitioned over his dead body and yet asked the government of India to honour its commitment by giving Pakistan its share of assets from the treasury of undivided India This is the charge repeatedly brought against Gandhi — why did he not die for the “Akhandata” of Bharat and why did he keep insisting that Pakistan be dealt with humanely We are asked to understand and appreciate the decision to put him to death for his stubborn act of trying to help an enemy nation when it was at war with us There is a widespread feeling that India would have achieved a much neater and cleaner self-identity as a nation save for Gandhi’s insistence on equal status for Muslims and Christians living in a nation of Hindu majority Gandhi is blamed for the confused Indian identity or for making it “unclean” He had to die then Just 12 days before his final moments he had returned from the verge of death On January 18 1948 Gandhi broke the fast he had commenced on January 13 as he could not bear to live in a Delhi where he could move around with ease but his friends Zakir Hussain and Shaheed Suhrawardy were not safe He could not allow his fellow Hindus to take over the properties of Muslims and drive them out capture mosques and turn them into temples Hatred was flowing on the streets of Delhi Gandhi knew that it was a “do or die” moment for him DG Tendulkar writes in his masterly biography of Gandhi Mahatma: “We are steadily losing hold on Delhi” Gandhi mentioned to a friend “If it goes India goes and with that goes the last hope of world peace” He found that his appeal for peace and understanding had no takers He felt that he had no other way but to put himself on trial once more this time to protest against the wrong done by his society Delhi was sheltering Hindus and Sikhs from Pakistan who had lost everything and suffered the worst kinds of atrocities To ask them to vacate Muslim properties was an audacious demand Muslims in Delhi had left their colonies and taken shelter in Purana Qila and Jama Masjid Gandhi said “It will end when and if I am satisfied that there is a union of hearts of all communities brought about without any outside pressure but from an awakened sense of duty” Gandhi was very clear about the nature and objective of his mission He said that he was fasting on behalf of Muslims in India and Hindus and Sikhs in Pakistan that he would rather die than be a helpless witness to the destruction of Hinduism Sikhism and Islam This destruction was certain if Pakistan ensured no equality of status and security to people professing various faiths and if India copied Pakistan The fast excited contradictory passions Slogans like Marta hai to Marne do (Let him die) were heard He was criticised for undertaking a pro-Muslim fast Gandhi was unwavering He patiently dealt with all objections to his fast But it also forced people to look inward and examine themselves The fast did generate a lot of goodwill but it also hardened the hatred against him A day before his killing a group of refugees came to see him and some of them abused him holding him responsible for their woes and asked him to leave them to their miseries and retire to the Himalayas Gandhi said that his Himalaya was always with him Is it surprising that there is no memory of this fast available though our school textbooks which shun the mention of his killing by a man who was not mad at all Why is it that schools take their young to Rajghat but seldom think of visiting Birla House where he was killed It was not surprising at all that when the University of Delhi decided to have a course on him it carefully avoided everything that could be linked to his politics and did not even mention his killing Is it because the killing of a Hindu by another purer masculine Hindu embarrasses us Why have Gandhians been only singing bhajans on this day never daring to touch the real issue the killing of Gandhi Why do we not want to face this moment Is it because there is no national consensus on how to describe the death Is it because we want to evade the “why” part of it Long after his death the act of “disembowelling” Gandhi continues The “abominable” part of him is being removed We are trying to get rid of the Gandhi who keeps challenging us and want a Gandhi who with his bhajan would put us to sleep But Gandhi was an eternal rebel This rebellious Gandhi needs to be rescued As a first step we need to visit the moment of his death and gather the courage to face the ghost of Gandhi who still wanders inside Birla

special committee comprising veterinary doctors wildlife activists and forest officials had recommended the release of the sub-adult tigress The recommendation was accepted by the PCCF (Representational Image) Top News THE “problem tigress” of Brahmapuri captured last week following a series of attacks on humans is set to be released back into the wild on Thursday “We have decided to release her in Bor Sanctuary in Wardha district” Principal Chief Conservator of Forest (PCCF Wildlife) A K Mishra told The Indian Express A special committee comprising veterinary doctors wildlife activists and forest officials had recommended the release of the sub-adult tigress The recommendation was accepted by the PCCF “Bor is the ideal location since it has a very good prey base and the tigress will have abundant food Also due to rains there is a thick green foliage all around giving her an ideal habitat to stay Moreover the human presence in the 65-sq km forest is the least with a village Navargaon being relocated just two months ago So we believe there is a vacancy for a tiger there” Mishra said Bor currently has three tigers and a few cubs Mishra hoped that the tigress labelled T27 C1 would be able to find a mate in Bor To prevent the possibility of any repetition of Brahmapuri-like incidents the authorities are going to radio-collar the tigress and monitor her movements closely “We are only managers The radio-collaring and other things will be taken care of by Wildlife Institute of India (WII) and veterinary doctors” Mishra said The tigress had caused panic and anger in the Haladgaon-Padmapur belt of Brahmapuri in Chandrapur district last month by killing two and injuring five persons in a series of attacks A senior wildlife activist said “It is a welcome decision as there could be nothing better for a tiger than live in its natural habitat But since tigers have a great homing instinct the authorities will have to be constantly on their toes to keep track of its movement The obvious risk here is malfunctioning of radio-collar that could disorient the tracking team Also the authorities will have to keep the experience of Saigata tigress in mind The tigress also from Chandrapur was released in Navegaon National Park in Gondia district in 2011 but had eventually relapsed into problematic behaviour She had then crossed over to neighbouring
