Namantar Shahid Smarak


The Namantar Shahid Smarak is located at Indora Bridge 10 on Kamptee Road, Nagpur. The location was selected because at this location Avinash Dongre, a teenager protesting in support of the Namantar Andolan was shot in the head by police on 4 August 1978. Four activists – Dilip Ramteke, Abdul Sattar, Roshan Borkar and Ratan Mendhe – also lost their lives nearby. The memorial has total of 27 sculptures of Bhim Sainiks (Ambedkarites ) who died during struggle. They are shown in the act of their struggle. In addition to the sculptures, there are 27 plaques with the name of each person; the memorial also has a monolith to pay homage to the martyrs.

12th January in Dalit History – Birth anniversary of Jijabai, mother of Shivaji Maharaj


Dilip C Mandal notes –

मां जिजाऊ जन्म जयंती च्या हार्दिक शुभेच्छा. शिवाजी की माता जिजाबाई जयंती की हार्दिक शुभकामनाएं. ब्राह्मणवादी संगठन RSS इस महान व्यक्तित्व का जन्मदिन कभी नहीं मनाता. मैं समझने की कोशिश कर रहा हूं कि ऐसा क्यों है!

Jijabai was a very pious and intelligent woman with great vision and inspired Shivaji Maharaj.
