TITANIC REMEMBERED \\\\\\\\\\\\\\ BUT NOT PARTITION \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ See below the details of commemorating the sinking of the ship Titanic in 1912. One is totally “knocked over” (impressed) by the way the British nation respects, remembers and honours their dead. Please read on: \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2012/04/09/titanic-history-website-publishes-200000-records-related-to-doomed-ocean-liner_n_1411827.html \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Southampton, the city from which the ill fated cruise liner Titanic set sail from 100 years ago, is hosting a series of events to commemorate the tragedy's centenary. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\ When the ship hit an iceberg and sank beneath the Atlantic on her maiden voyage to New York, the city was left in shock and grief for many years. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ More than 1,500 people lost their lives after the Titanic struck an iceberg and sank. More than 200,000 Titanic-related records have gone online to mark the 100th anniversary of the ship's sinking. The records have been gathered by family history website “Ancestry.co.uk” and include lists of the dead and information about survivors.\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Records now online include images of grave headstones of 121 Titanic passengers, more than 329 coroner inquest files, and records of 330 bodies that were recovered at sea. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ MS Balmoral To Recreate Titanic's Voyage 100 Years After The Sinking \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Ancestry.co.uk content manager Miriam Silverman said: "Over the generations, many families may have heard rumours that they had an ancestor aboard the Titanic, or even lost the evidence proving it. "We're very pleased to be able to offer access to these valuable records for free, enabling thousands to uncover the story of their ancestor's tragic voyage." \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ This week 1,309 passengers will be marking the centenary of the Titanic disaster on the night of April 14, 1912, with lectures and will eat food the same as was served aboard the ill-fated liner. They will then visit Nova Scotia where some of the victims are buried before ending the 12 day trip in New York. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ On Tuesday, at the same berth in the city's docks where the ship set sail on April 10 1912, more than 650 descendants of those on board will be on the quayside for a special ceremony. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ At noon on Tuesday- the exact moment RMS Titanic slipped her moorings - a recording of the ship's whistle will sound around the docks. Prior to that, a minute's silence is due to take place in honour of the dead. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Titanic's departure will then be re-enacted when the tug tender Calshot, which was built in the same era to manoeuvre the world's greatest ocean liners, sails from berth 43/44 followed by a flotilla of craft. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ The event is to be hosted by television broadcaster Fred Dinenage, whose great-uncle, James Richard Dinenage, was one of Titanic's stewards and perished along with more than 1,500 passengers. It will take place in Ocean Terminal, which overlooks the Titanic berths. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ In addition to the descendants, civic dignitaries, representatives of maritime organisations and business and community leaders are attending. More than 600 Southampton schoolchildren will also pay a poignant tribute by parading through the city centre holding placards commemorating all those residents who served as crew members on the Titanic and who died when it sank on 15 April 1912.\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ The names of the lost crew, along with any other known information will be inscribed on the back of the placards, with an image of the crew member on the front. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ The event will help to mark the opening - also at the exact time the ship left the city - of the new £15 million SeaCity Museum which features a permanent Titanic exhibition. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ The city council-organised children's parade will start from the Titanic Engineers' Memorial. Councillor John Hannides said: "This will be a truly fitting tribute to all those crew members who lost their lives on the Titanic.\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ "On April 10 2012, exactly a century after the famous ship departed from the city, Southampton City Council is set to open SeaCity Museum.\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ "This commemoration is a wonderful way to teach the city's children about Southampton's role in this tragic story.\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ "The poignant parade for the opening of the SeaCity Museum will be spectacular to see and I very much thank all those schools and children who are taking part. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ "We have a world-class attraction which tells Southampton's incredible story." ------------\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ FLASHBACK TO PARTITIONED INDIA: \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Our mind goes back to India in 1947. At Partition over a MILLION innocent citizens were massacred and 15 MILLION were forced out of their homes by the Muslim fanatics in the newly established ISLAMIC republic of Pakistan. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ India’s Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, who generously rewarded the Muslims and vindictively punished the Hindus by agreeing to the division of India on Muslim terms, betraying India and the Hindus, regarded the perishing Hindus and Sikhs no more than “ants and flies”, not worth commemorating with ceremonies or tributes. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Nehru never mentioned “Partition” but made it look like “Independence”, fooling the ignorant nation in broad daylight. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ His tight psychological hold over the enslaved Hindu nation was so strong that none defied his Will even to suggest erecting a Memorial to their memory, or establishing a few Hindu Holocaust Museums, one for the dead of each Province or State(Sindh, Balochistan, NWFP, West Punjab, East Bengal and North Kashmir) that was surrendered to the “beasts in human form” unconditionally. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ In our "enslaved" Hindusthan people must wait for a revolution, an army coup, or the sudden demise of All-India Congress Party (Italy & Islam) before the nation can honour those who were betrayed by Nehru and his Party, and then thrown out of the nation’s mind in less than a second. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ By commemorating the Million Dead of Nehru’s BETRAYAL in the same way as the British are commemorating the 1500 dead of Titanic we shall show the world that we are an honourable nation and the Hindus are not mere “flies and insects” of Jawaharlal Nehru but esteemed humans and proud sons and daughters of the soil, worthy of due respect and befitting acts of remembrance. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ 11 April 2012. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ =================================== 000000000
