Sacrifice of Mizoram Parents
मिजोरम के प्रवास में आज खुम्तुङ (Khumtung) गाँव में एक परिवार में गए। स्वागत परिचय हुआ। चाय-पान की तैयारी चल रही थी इतनें में दीवार के फोटो के तरफ मेरा ध्यान आकर्षित हुआ। वह सर्टिफिकेट नुमा कुछ मिजो भाषा में लिखा था। साथ में मिजो एवं हिंदी भाषा के जानकार मित्र रामथङा थे। उन्होंने तुरंत उस सर्टिफिकेट में से काव्यपंक्ति को भाषांतरित किया। उस का अर्थ था: “मेरा जीवन काल समाप्त होकर, जिस भूमि से आया फिर वापस लौटना पडे तो भी मैं समाप्त नहीं हूंगा अनंत काल तक, क्यों कि मैं ईश्वर का आशीष वहन करनेवाला हूँ।“
फिर जानकारी मिली कि जिनके घर मे बैठे थे उनका नाम के ललनेइत्लुअङा एवं उनकी पत्नी वानमोईई है। उनका 22 साल का सुपुत्र के ललफमकिमा देश की रक्षा करता हुआ जम्मू-कश्मीर के राजौरी जिले में आतंकवादीयों के साथ वीरतापूर्ण संघर्ष किया 3 आतंकवादीयों को मारते हुए दि 29 अगस्त 2004 रविवार को शहीद हुए। दि 2 सितम्बर 2004 बृहस्पतिवार को पूरे सैनिक सम्मान के साथ उनके गाँव में उपर लिखित पारंपरिक गीत को गाते हुए लोगों ने अश्रुपूर्ण विदाई दी।
शहीद ललफमकिमा के छोटे भाई के ललरमह्लुना को भी उसकी इच्छा के अनुसार सेना में भर्ती हुए। तब लोगों ने पूछा कि सेना में नौकरी करना खतरनाक होता है। तब वीर माता ने बताया कि मृत्यु सभी को आता है। देश के लिए शहीद होना गौरव की बात है। ऐसे वीर माता-पिता को शत शत शत नमन।
Only men used to become firefighters at airports. The job is filled with hazards and it requires an amount of alertness to be a firefighter. Remya Sreekantan will become the first female firefighter of Airport Authority of India from South India as she takes charge on November 28.
Remya is the wife of Arun residing in ‘Sreeganga’ in Parassala Karode. An M.Tech graduate in civil engineering, she decided to become a firefighter after understanding the dangers that come with the job. The training was hard. Rope climbing, pole climbing, running with hard hose-Remya excelled much better than male trainees, says Vishnu-a co-trainee.
She was a guest lecturer at Poojappura LBS for two years. Then went for PSC training. Arun, who is working in a private company at the airport, told Remya about the chance to apply in the Junior Assistant category in the South Zone Fire Service of Airport Authority. Remya applied and later secured high marks in the written examination. She then trained for three months at Kattachalkuzhy Kailasam Physical Centre under Sajith to prepare for physical tests. When the rank list came there was only one woman-Remya. Her family was initially shocked but backed her soon after. She underwent training at Delhi Fire Training Centre for four months. All the trainers and trainees there were men. They gave the consideration she was the first woman from the south zone.
Remya says that her husband, father Sreekantan Nair and mother Geethakumar have supported her all the way which helped in her success. Remya has a two-year-old daughter named Anumitha.
In India, there are only two women other than Remya from Kolkata and Rajasthan who are working in the same post.
Shoaibullah’s life sacrifice in the interest of the country.
Not many may know about this great journalist from Bhagyanagar (Hyderabad) called Shoaibullah. His name, however, is to be added to the pantheon of great sons of India who sacrificed their lives in defence of the country and of dharma/truth.
Shoaib was born on 12th October 1920 in Mehboobabad in Warangal district of Telangana. His father was a police officer with the Railways and was patriotic to the core. His patriotism rubbed off on the young Shoaib too. Discussions about the freedom movement at home had a great impact on him. The sacrifice of revolutionary Ashfaqulla Khan moved him a lot and Shoaib decided to take a plunge in the service of the nation.
Shoaib had been fond of writing since childhood. Very few Muslims, in those days, were able to get a good education. Shoaib, however, was again an exception and completed his graduation. Being a graduate, he could have got a good government job, but he had his mind set on becoming a journalist. In those days, there was a famous Urdu newspaper called ‘Rayat’ which used to be published by Sri Narasimha Rao. It used to openly criticise the British and the Nizam. Shoaib became a sub-editor here, earning a salary of fifty rupees a month.
These were the days when the Razakars were spreading terror across the Nizam state. The target of the Razakars were the Hindus. Looting, murder, violence, arson, rape, conversion was common for them. The then ruler, Nizam Osman Ali khan, also used to support the Razakars.
When India became independent on the 15th of August, the Nizam wanted his state, Hyderabad to either remain independent or join Pakistan. That 90% of the state’s population was Hindu and that they wanted to merge with India, was of no consequence to him. In pursuit of his goal of Independence or Pakistan, he actively supported the Razakars in all their atrocities.
The Arya Samaj and the Hindu Mahasabha organised and a strong movement against the Nizam and the Razakars. The Razakars had then adopted a strategy of calling Muslims from Bihar and Uttar Pradesh in large numbers and settling them in Hyderabad. Shoaib and the newspaper Rayat used to expose all this and hence the Nizam banned the newspaper itself.
Narsimha Rao and Shoaib did not lose courage and took out a newsletter called “Emrose” and started breathing even more fire through it. On 19th August, 1948, a Razakar’s conference was held at Zamrud theatre in Hyderabad wherein Qasim Rizvi, the head of Razakars threatened to chop off the hands of all those who were writing against them.
This was an open threat to Shoaib. Yet, Shoaib ignored this threat and carried a stinging criticism of this speech in the next edition of ‘Emrose.’ Enraged by this, the Razakars on the night of August 21, 1948 surrounded Shoaib and his brother in law, Rahmat, when they were returning home from work and fired on him from behind! When he fell to the ground, they cut-off both his hands with a sword. Rahmat too was not spared and the Razakars chopped off his one hand and one finger of the other hand. People brought the injured Shoaib home but he breathed his last in front of his mother, wife and daughter.
It was thanks in large measure to Rayat, Emrose and Shoaibullah that the massive atrocities and terror campaign of the Razakars got exposed and publicised. Sardar Patel, on 13th September, said enough was enough and sent the Indian Army to liberate the people of Hyderabad from the terror unleashed by the Nizam and the Razakars. This is when Hyderabad merged with India.
The Tricolor, the national flag of India was hoisted in Hyderabad on September 17, 1948. Sadly, however, Shoaibullah was not alive to see this day – a day for which he had fought valiantly and laid down his life.
Let’s remember this great son of Hyderabad and India and salute him and his contributions.
