In 1897 the Afghan tribe’s men notably the Afridi and Orkazai tribes revolted against the British. In an effort to contain them the British had earlier built two forts at Lockhart and Gulistan.In between these Forts they had set up a small heliographic communication post. This post consisted of a small block house with loop holed ramparts made of stone and brick. At 9:00 am Sept 12th, 1897, 10,000 Afghan tribal troops launched a surprise attack on Saragarhi. Saragarhi was manned by 21 Sikh soldiers of the 36th Sikh Regiment. The man in charge was Havildar Ishwar Singh.
The Sikhs covered themselves with glory in many fields of battle for the British.The most notable being the brave fight by 21 Sikh soldiers against the tribesmen of the Frontier at Saragrahi, where they faced a horde of 10,000 Moslems. The Sikhs also fought in the First World war and the Second World war and earlier in the British Army campaigns against the Afghans on the Frontier.
Make sure to carry your own drinking water supply as you may not be able to leave your seat till this parade ends. Some light snacks can also be kept with you. However, recent security measures do not allow the food items. I was lucky to see this parade before around 5 years when I was incidentally in Delhi on 26th January. Many foreigners visit Delhi in such a way that they can see this most beautiful and exquisite event of India.
The weather in Delhi changes throughout the year. Cold weather begins in November and peaks in December and January. May, June, July, and August are the hottest months. So ensure that you plan your visit according to the weather that suits you. You should check the weather at the time of booking flights to Delhi .
The OT-64 also dates from the 1960s. The 14.7 ton 8×8 can reach almost 60 mph, has a range of 440 miles and amphibious. Armor ranges between 6 mm and 13 mm, and the vehicle is armed with both a 14.5 mm and a 7.62 mm machine gun. The OT-64 needs two crew and can carry 10 passengers. The vehicle was exported widely, and is still in service with armies in the Middle East, Africa and South America.
But the state and central governments could not allow dacoits to flourish and Pandit Nehru deployed Gurkhas to tackle the dacoit gangs. In 1955 Man Singh was shot by Gurkha troops of the Indian Army Recruitment while he was resting under a tree. It was an anticlimax and Nehru could announce to parliament that the dreaded dacoit had been killed. His reign as a dacoit had lasted from 1939-55.
Lotus Temple is another notable place in Delhi and you can choose evening to visit there. The tourists from all over the world come here, as it is open for the people of different community. However, they have to maintain silence and peace inside the temple. Mughal Garden is a combination of Mughal and British style. It was built for Lady Harding. The tourists can visit this place in late evening and the garden is beautifully decorated.
As can be seen, 1984 was a pivotal year in furthering what we now look back upon as the “1980s image,” for so many reasons. The year saw the reelection of a very popular President Reagan, the introduction of the Macintosh computer, and the expansion of an economy that would continue to render much of the expanding opulence that fits hand in glove with the concept of high-living that many in the 1980s experienced. Watch as the decade enters its second half as you continue reading The 1980s.
