Moving Towards South Asian Confederation

Commemorating the golden jubilee of Bangladesh

16th December, 1971 is a golden lettered day in the Indian subcontinent when Bangladesh attained freedom from the West Pakistani subjugation. This was an unique feat for the Indian armed forces for which they are respected in the subcontinent. The architect of that event was the then Indian premier, Indira Gandhi who had even been blessed by The Mother of Sri Aurobindo Ashram for that risky adventure. Eyebrows were raised when the present Indian government chose carefully to avoid her name on the occasion. However history did not suffer as her contribution was duly acknowledged from the Bangladesh side, especially by their premier.

It is important that differences in political ideology should not initiate partisan attitudes for history would not spare such travesty of truth.
