317 – Remember
On April 13, 1919 Brigadier General Reginald Dyer ordered firing on unarmed men, women and children assembled in Jalianwala Bagh. The firing which lasted 10-15 minutes killed 1526 people.
91 years after the incident, the walls tell the story of people who gave their lives for the country, the bullet marks on the wall still fresh from the blood of the people.
But are we listening? Have we failed as a citizen of this country?
