23 years later, the wounds are not healed.

Some wounds though may never heal, especially this one.

In remembrance of 23rd anniversary of the sacrilege, destruction, and desecration of Harimandar Sahib complex.

My Dad snapped this picture when he visited Toronto two years ago.

For those of you, who don't know what happened 23 years ago, check out the following video below. It's a documentary called Storming the Temple as it was aired on The History Channel some years ago.

If you want, you can download the video here.

I was six years old when 1984 happened, and that is the day I woke up and realized who I am.

What about you?

I was 4 when this happened...I remember my parents talking about Indira Gandhi this, Indira Gandhi that, but I never really knew what happened until I was much older, probably when I started high school.

That's amazing that at 6 years old who "realized who you are." I'm 26 years old and I'm still trying to figure that out. I'm not so sure if anyone ever really figures it out in an entire lifetime.

After watching this video, I am hurt to find that someone has not yet responded to the accusations of Jarnail Singh made by M Tully and those that made this documenter. The tone that this 'documentary' was set is was to blame the Sikhs and Jarnail Singh as the culprit of the 1984 attacks. I hope that we all can go out and research what actually happened, and how these allegations are preposterous.
