The BMS activists entered the pandal raising slogans, when the leaders were making speeches. Surprisingly, the police did not stop them.

On seeing the activists marching ahead, youth Congress activists led by councillor Paramjit Singh Pamma confronted them and resorted to counter-sloganeeering. At this, the BMS activists beat a quick retreat.

Pamma alleged that the BMS had tried to disrupt the proceedings at the behest of industries minister Madan Mohan Mittal, the local MLA.

New Delhi, 1984. New York, 2014.

In my parent’s bedroom is a framed photo that seems a bit out of place. The small image has an aged yellow tint and displays my father at the young age of 24, standing proudly atop the GB Pant Hospital in New Delhi, India. He looks just as I do now. Tall, skinny, his not-yet full beard kept neatly on the sides of his jaw as he sports a clean pair of glasses and a neat turban matching his shirt. That year (1984), my father was in his medical residency pursuing a specialty in anesthesiology. His eyes shine of dreams of the success that would come from his hard work in the future. However, what could not be captured in the photograph is what my father had seen in that year, 1984. Writes Manmeet Singh Gujral
