Amritsar- Jallianwala Bagh and Market

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers
13th April 1919, a huge crowd including women and children gathered in Jallianwala Barg for a peaceful protest against the British rule. They had no idea that a devil stood waiting for the moment since a long time. General Dyer, the cold-hearted killer was aware of this gathering and came in full preparation. The Jallianwala bagh premises had, and still has, a single entry and exit. Dyer closed the only exit point with an armored vehicle, ordered his soldiers to take position in a straight line and take aim. Soldiers were well prepared and they have no shortage of bullets. 

They started firing till the time no one left to shoot. They had no shortage of targets because apart from a well situated in the left side of the ground there was no cover. In all, 1650 rounds were fired which resulted in the death of more than 1000.

This is my humble tribute to the victims who lost their lives on that unfortunate day.
