I have been insisting that RSS is doing everything to cut off Kashmir,specifically Kashmir valley out of Indian Map! I have always been writing and speaking the story of partition in First Person version,the version of the a partition victim,the story of the continuous bloodshed,continuous holocaust and continuous refugee influx worldwide.The official history as well as the so called mainstream literature voice the third person description of the Greek Tragedy in India.It is the story of the rulers defending the interest of the class rule,caste hegemony of blatant racial apartheid.


We have to go back to history to understand the RSS agenda of making India Hindu within 2020 and making a Hindu Globe.The mechanism of fascism was behind the partition of Bengal,partition of Punjab,continuous persecution of Kashmir,AFSPA,Salawa Judum and this Bermuda triangle of privatization,liberalization and globalization,the phenomenon of the SIYAST MAJHAB HUKUMAT COMBINED sacred bloodthirsty Trishul!


Thanks Ms Mamata Banerjee to declassify the cabinet documents on Netaji between 1938-1947.These documents are very important to know Fazlul Haq whom no indian citizen does not know these days.


Didi,thanks and I never cared for political correction as well as spell check or aesthetics when I deal with social realism and history.I care for the truth and my methodology consists of scientific approach,objective impartial outlook and commitment to the masses,the humanity and nature.I am not dealing politics.


I have to leave Bangal very soon as I belong to a refugee resettlement colony,Basantipur in Uttarakhand and I landed in Bengal as a journalist associated with Indian Express.I have to retire on May ,1916 as i coplete almost twenty five years in Bengal.Neither I belong to Bengal intelligentsia nor I am subject of political equation.I never sought a meeting with you face to face even while you were leading Bengal Peasantry in a movement against forcible land acquisition and I always stood with Mahashweta Devi whom you call the JANANi,mother of the Mass Movement.I disassociated with her as she tagged herself with your politics.I have been criticising the politics and governance as my commitment is limited to humanity and nature beyond politics and borders. I have not to seek you favour for my sustenance in Bengal.better I leave Bengal.


The Netaji documents earlier you declasified proved my point that  Netaji had never been a fascist and in fact he fought against fascism and he tried his best to sustain pluralism and diversity against the Fascist Manusmriti Hegemony.As the latest documents support and confirm my version of the partition story,and the continuous partition and affarairs realted to tribal geography countrwide and beyond,the degenerated plight of the refugges,the victims of continuous partion,may point of view on RSS agenda of exclusionof Kashmir and North East to make a Hindu Nation,the INDERICA of ethnic cleansing and genocide culture.Thanks Mamta Didi!


The first prime minister of Bengal,Fazlul Haq was the leader of Parja krishak Party of the Hindu Muslim Tribal peasantry united since the demise of Buddhist Bengal who had been fighting against East India Company and British Raj and this grand alliance of the majority agrarian communities,the real bahujan samaj continuously fought for workers the right to land and rights of the workers in a feudal production system captured by feudal lords, the Zamindars who aligned with British Raj and later converted themselves swadishi to national leaders.


It is the story of chuar, munda, bheel, santhal insurections,Sanyasi rebellion,Indigo revolt,freedom struggle in 1857 to Tebhaga and food movement turminated in Naxalismand Maoism!


Praja Krishak Party was formed to push for their demand of land reforms and it had been also the demand of Matua Movement led by Harichand and Guruchand Thakur which saw Jogendra nath Mandal to become the face of untouchable Bengal.


This story is very important to understand the incarnation of Dr BR Ambedkar as the chairman of the draft committee of Indian Constitution.


The supporters of Fazlul Haq and Harichand Guruchand Thakur and the untouchables of East Bengal empowered babasaheb to ensure constitutional safeguards for SC, ST, OBC, Minorities, Workers and Women!


I am waiting for the fine prints of those documents.

One document deals with the riots named Direct Action in Kolkata in 1946 which is believed to be decisive for

partition and population transfer in 1947 confirming Two Nations theory to sustain and revive Hindutva as well as Manusmriti rule with reservation quota eternal sanctity to the losing hell of Hindutva,the caste system,the permanent settlement of brutal,blatant racial apartheid to divide the workers and toiling masses,the agrarian communities in identity politics as we watch the LIVE Mahabharta,the caste war in a KURUKSHETRA renamed and relaunched as BIHAR!


Hitherto we had been blaming SUHARWARDI for Direct Action and RSS hitherto has made it a content full of blood and meat that Islam and Muslims were responsible for every riot and for the partition and we. the Indian people treat Muslims and Non Hindus as second class third class mankind like we demonise every other community other than the ruling castes rooted in Aryan PURITY!


These documents prove that Hindutva forces including Congress had a greater role in Direct action as we have already witnessed in bleeding punjab,Sikh Genocide,Gujarat Killings,Babri Mosque demolition and the latest in Mujaffarnagar.


One of the documents expose the details of the meeting held in Kolkata to finalize the strategy to stop Netaji to enter India and the ruling hegemony ensured that Netaji must not return to Kolkata.


I belong to the refugee,scattered worldwide,those wanted to return to their original home just because someone like comrade Jyoti Basu called them back home like the waves.Their returned and the the first LefT Front Government ,known better for land reforms and Dr,Ashok Mitra as the FM of that government massacred them in Marichjhapi.Since then MRICHJHANPI people denied justice.


Didi,you visited Marichjhanpi time and again and you promised justice.But you just forgot.You reopened every file of Genocide in Bengal except Marichjhanpi Genocide.Why?

Just send us to MARS as our friend,poet and late seniormost minister in tripura Anil Sarkar suggested that the refugees should be sent to some other planet if they are deprived of citizenship.

Way back in 2002 we were jointly addressing the Press in Agaratala Press club to protest the citizenship amendment bill,2003.

Mamata Banerjee declassifies files on Netaji and allied cabinet meetings held during 1938-47

  • Netaji BoseOn September 18, after 67 years, as many as 64 Netaji files with the Bengal government were made public in the Kolkata Police museum.

After declassifying the intelligence files on Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, the Mamata Banerjee-led West Bengal state government declassified files on cabinet meetings that were held during the pre-independence era between 1938-47. "We have declassified state cabinet papers from 1938 to 1947 today. Total 401 cabinet files of the pre-independence era were declassified. The declassification of these files will throw light on the history of pre-independence era. The files will be available with the state library and public archive. I will hand over a copy of the CD containing digital data of Netaji files to the President of India, Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha speaker," said Banerjee while addressing reporters at Nabanna – state secretariat, before leaving for Delhi.

The Chief Minister will be leaving for Delhi today to attend Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal-convened Chief Minister's meet. Banerjee also highlighted that the digitisation of files is a step towards Digital India program. "Digitisation of files is one such step taken by us towards Digital India program. Digitisation of files after independence will be done in a phase wise manner in future. In this age of internet and social media, we believe in transparency. That is why we declassified files. People must know the truth. We hope the stand taken by our government regarding declassification of files will be adopted by other governments also," she added.

On September 18, after 67 years, as many as 64 Netaji files with the Bengal government were made public in the Kolkata Police museum. While the hard copies of the Netaji files were placed inside the wooden and glass cabinets, ten desktops were installed inside the museum, where visitors can browse through the data of the files in digital format.

All 64 intelligence files, 55 with the then Special Branch of Calcutta Police and nine with the state's IB, were thrown open for public from September 21. The 12,744-page dossier, however, opened up new avenues about Netaji's interactions with people, his personal life and his dreams about freeing India from the British rule.
