November. 2011.

It’s that time of the year again. When we remember November 1984. The best remembrance, second only to assisting the survivors directly, is: understanding what happened during that bloody week of November 1984 (and the many bloody years that followed!) and then sharing our understanding with others.

So, this November:

1.  Sign this petition. Share this petition.

“We, the undersigned, call for

An independent international inquiry into Rajiv Gandhi and the Congress party’s role in planning, organizing and executing the November 1984 anti-Sikh pogroms in New Delhi,India and the immediate removal of the name of former Indian Prime Minister, Rajiv Gandhi, from all public monuments, airports, roads, stadia, parks, sports awards, and professorships…”

2. Read this book. Share this book.  Buy a copy!



3. Watch this movie. Share this movie. Buy a copy!

Lamentably, Amu remains the one and only–worth mentioning–full length feature film on 1984 screened (though for a mere week in Chandigarh and not at all in Punjab cinemas) on India ….

As against this Bollywood is brave when it comes to depicting fall-out of 9/11 on minorities in far-away USA–most famously, “My Name is Khan”. But same brave  Bollywood people won’t touch 2002 of Modi half as bravely … or 1984 of Rajiv Gandhi at all.

A review of the movie can be found on the Sikh Foundation Website here.
