The district of Raebareli, which was created by the British in 1858, is named after its headquarters town. Tradition has it that the town was founded by the Bhars and was known as Bharauli or Barauli which in course of time got corrupted into Bareli. The prefix, Rae, is said to be a corruption of Rahi, a village 5km. west of the town. It is also said that the prefix, Rae, represents Rae, the common title of the Kayasths who were masters of the town for a considerable period of time.
Since about the begining of the media level period of indian history the region in the south of which the area covered by the district of Raebareli lies has been known as avadh or subhah of avadh. In the north it streched as far as the foothills of the Himmalays and in the south as far as the Ganga beyond which lay the Vatsa country. There is no doubt that the district has been civilised and settled life since very early times.
The Quit India movement was inagurated on August 8, 1942 and the district did not lag behind any others. Again there was mass arrests, imposition of collective fines, lathi charges and police firing. At Sareni the police opened fire at an agitated crowed, killing and maiming many. The people of this district enthusiastically respond to the call of individual Satyagragha and large numbers courted arrest. At last, on August 15,1947, the country shook off the foreign yoke and achieved its long-awaited independence. Raebareli celeberated the event with benefiting glee and rejoicing in every home along with the rest of the country.

आज किसान आंदोलन के 100 दिन हों गए।

पर दुर्भाग्य है कि “खेती विरोधी तीन काले क़ानूनों” को श्री दुष्यंत चौटाला सही ठहरा रहे।

सत्ता की मलाईं खाने में अंधे हो, ये अहंकार की आख़री हद है।

गद्दी से चिपके रहने के इस लालच से अच्छा उपमुख्यमंत्री पद से इस्तीफ़ा दे देते।

Month 3 was all about lies, damned lies & propaganda. From arresting journalists & activists to juvenile social media campaigns designed to counter a pop-star & teenager, the Modi govt proved once again their priority is PR not people.

The second month ended as the first began - violence, brutality & a complete breakdown of law & order. In any sane democracy the Home Minister & Delhi Police would be held responsible for the events of 26th Jan.

The first month of the farmers protest started with brutal violence & cruelty on the part of the Central & Haryana govts. But that did not deter our farmers from fighting for their rights.
