Hasan became a major in the INA and participated in the march from Burma (now Myanmar) across the Indian frontier. The army reached Imphal. It was severely handicapped in supplies and armaments and so had to retreat, the author says.
  • Bose secretary coined Jai Hind, says book:
“Bose wanted to introduce an Indian form of greeting for his army, and for independent India. Various suggestions came. Hasan suggested ‘Hello’. Netaji snubbed him. Then he suggested ‘Jai Hind’. Netaji liked it and it became the official form of greeting in INA and the revolutionary Indians. Later it was adopted as the official slogan of the country,” he says. The book mentions about 70 legends, anecdotes and personal accounts beginning from the beautiful rocks of the Deccan plateau to Bhagamati, to the developments during the era of Nizams and beyond. continue reading: Oman Tribune

    First ever Google doodles tribute to a Hyderabadi: Nightingale of India, Sarojini Devi Naidu's 135th birth anniversary

    Memories of the great leader, Sarojini Naidu
    proud to be INDIAN

    Mohammed Ayub Ali Khan @ Facebook:.

    "I feel excited that Google is celebrating our own Hyderabadi, Nightingale of India, Sarojini Devi Naidu's 135th birth anniversary. I am still on the lookout for her poem 'The Pathan' which she wrote at the death of Bahadur Yar Jung. Maybe one day I will find it."
    NDTV: "The Nightingale of India Sarojini Naidu is the subject of Tuesday's doodle on the Google India homepage.
    Sarojini Naidu was born as Sarojini Chattopadhyaya in Hyderabad in 1879, the eldest of eight siblings, and was considered a child prodigy. Her parents were luminaries in their own fields, with her father a respected doctor who founded the Hyderabad College (later named Nizam's College), and her mother an acclaimed Bengali poet. Sarojini Naidu passed her Matriculation examination from the University of Madras, and went on to complete her education in England, first at King's College London and later at Girton College, Cambridge.
    Apart from her contributions to the Indian independence and suffragette movement, Naidu was also famous for her literary career. She began writing at the age of 13, and her first collection of poems, The Golden Threshold, was published in 1905.
    The Google doodle marking Sarojini Naidu's birth anniversary is a simple image (seen above) featuring a portrait of Naidu in place of the second 'o' of the Google logo, and a symbolic blue umbrella in place of the 'l'. The image features mouse-over text, which says 'Sarojini Naidu's 135 birthday'." source: NDTV
