Thanks for posting this, Dilip!

I am a Sikh and was about 9 years old in 1984, and lived in Hardwar,U.P. (now Uttaranchal) with my family.

Fortunately, we escaped unhurt, but lived in fear for our lives for several days until the army moved in. Some of our family friends were attacked.

I think the experience is going to live with me for ever. I have recently started writing a blog but have not written about this experience yet. Perhaps I will, some day.

Jasmeen, what I'm kicking myself for is, I haven't taken this project forward. But I will, now.

SSA,
First of all, my Best wishes to Dilip for his best effort.
About 20 thousand Sikhs were killed in nov 84, police played a role of puppet. Thousands of Sikhs were burnt, hundreds of women were raped, million of property of Sikhs put on fire, and not even single person was arrested.
I have a Video which I want to share with you all people

I was in college, main campus, when the news came that Indira Gandhi was shot at by her own own guards, and was in a critical condition. It was kind of shocking but we had our regular classes. This was on 31st Oct 1984.
We had this sikh friend who played cricket in the university and he had to go to Ghaziabad after college, where he stayed. He called his father from the railway station asking what to do. His father told him to take out the bulb from the train compartment and pretend to be asleep on the top berth. He reached home safely.
There were rumours of laddus being distributed by Sikhs near Hotel Marina to celebrate Mrs Gandhi's death.It was being rumoured that this was what started the riots. Why couldn't some citizens express their dislike for a politician (if the rumours were true). She was just a politician. Their were other rumours that some congress leaders who got the riots started.
I was too horrified by the rumours and maybe from the truth which was worse than rumours, to remember anything except the horror of those days. Why was immediate action not taken? The guilty should be severely punished. I remember it was a free for all, and the slum dwellers suddenly acquired VCRs and TVs, robbed from the families they killed. The saddest part was how some otherwise normal people started speaking of Sikhs as if they were a different species (now I hear the Biharis described in the same tones). Is it something in our DNA? Hatred is so easily created, division so easily created, we seem to have such weak foundations. I think if politicians or citizens involved are left unpunished they become even bolder.
Congratulations, this is a great effort. I agree they should never be forgotten.
I don't think it possible to complete the list. So many bodies could never be unidentified. So many people were never found.
