One thousand six hundred and fifty rounds

The earth shuddered, under march of callous ammo.

The earth shuddered, under march of callous ammo. metallic whiff, shamelessly occupying,

The earth shuddered, under march of callous ammo. metallic whiff, shamelessly occupying, nooks and crannies of air molecules,

The earth shuddered, under march of callous ammo. metallic whiff, shamelessly occupying, nooks and crannies of air molecules, as the fire dined on flesh.

teetering flowers begged the sparks, but request never stops,

teetering flowers begged the sparks, but request never stops, a paroxysm of wrath.

teetering flowers begged the sparks, but request never stops, a paroxysm of wrath. the sun did sweat, at Dyer's deed,

teetering flowers begged the sparks, but request never stops, a paroxysm of wrath. the sun did sweat, at Dyer's deed, the moon hid behind shivering stars.

The wind howled its plea, avian chorus choked by smoke

The wind howled its plea, avian chorus choked by smoke and inexhaustible screams.

The wind howled its plea, avian chorus choked by smoke and inexhaustible screams. The children wailed, few lucky,

The wind howled its plea, avian chorus choked by smoke and inexhaustible screams. The children wailed, few lucky, hugged by body frames;

pure water dyed with ruby violence,

pure water dyed with ruby violence, the well cursing its destiny,

pure water dyed with ruby violence, the well cursing its destiny, Shame! even God trembled,

pure water dyed with ruby violence, the well cursing its destiny, Shame! even God trembled, but not that human being

This is written on the jalianwala bagh tragedy or massacre, termed to be one of the biggest colonial disaster in the history, Rowlatt act was passed by the British govt. In India, to stop any meeting, people decided to do, but many people were unaware of it, so they gathered at jilianwala bagh, for the festival and meeting.

General dyer on getting the news, blocked the only working entrance, which was narrow, and started open firing without warning, in his haunting interview, he admitted, that he would have used the machine gun vehicles too but the path was narrow to accommodate it. Many jumped in well to save themselves buy they either died of drowning or bullets

"I did not like the idea of doing it, but it was the only means of saving life........ It was a merciful thougj horrible act and they ought to be thankful for it. I thought i would be doing a jolly lot good and they would realise taht they were not to be wicked" This is the infamous quote of general dyer during his trail

Thanks for bearing with me 💜❤💖💖💖💖💖
