CURRENT AFFAIRS OCTOBER 2017 10 | Page 9004078746 [email protected] I. HISTORY Seeking to keep alive memory of a struggle The name of Esur village in Shivamogga district is etched in the annals of Indian history for the uprising by its residents 75 years ago against the British . But the alleged negligence by the State government to commemorate the event is being rued now by those who had participated in the Esur struggle. In 1942, a series of programmes were held in Esur village of Shikaripur taluk as part of the Quit India Movement. Farmers in the village had suffered loss that year due to natural calamity and refused to pay tax . The intimidation tactics by the British administration to collect tax didn’t yield result and the farmers barred the entry of government officials to the village. On September 29, 1942, the residents hoisted the tricolour on Veerabhadreshwara temple and declared that the village was liberated from British rule . A meeting of villagers that was convened immediately formed its own government. Upon hearing this, the British government sent the police to arrest those who had hoisted the flag. A clash ensued and a p oliceman and a revenue officer were killed . The additional troops sent by the British allegedly looted and plundered the village, following which the residents fled and took refuge in a nearby forest. More than 200 people who had participated in freedom struggle in Esur were arrested, of which five , Gurappa, Jinahalli Mallappa, Suryanarayanachar, Badakalli Halappa and Gowdru Shankarappa, were hanged to death on March 8, 1943. Esur should be developed in such a way that, the spirit of patriotism should be rekindled among those who visit it, it is demanded. Observe Patel’s birth anniversary, States told The Centre has asked States to observe the birth anniversary of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel on October 31 on a grander scale this year . It is celebrated as a Rashtriya Ekta Diwas’ since 2014 . Prime Minister Narendra Modi will lead the nation in paying tributes to the country’s first Home Minister flagging off the ‘ Run for Unity’ . Home Minister Rajnath Singh had written to Chief Ministers and Union Ministers to organise the pledge, run for unity and the march on the occasion.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
