My childhood 1921-1931
(Excerpts from Vishnu Sharma’s
unfinished autobiography

Birth: “I was born in October, 1921, in a little village called Khat Khar Kalaan, situated in the Doaba area of the Punjab in British India.

The British ruled India as they did a large part of the world up to about the middle of this century but it was not until I was 10 years old that I saw an English man for the first time.

At the level of the common people each district was divided into smaller areas called Tehsils with a Tehsildar in charge. The Tehsils were made up of Zails, each comprising several villages. Each village had two officials, the ‘Lambardar’ whose task it was to collect land revenue and the ‘Potwari’ whose job it was to keep an accurate record of every single inch of land and who owned it, as well as, how much harvest had been brought in. The Zaildar, Lambardar and Potwari were invariably all Indians. These Indians were much feared, their social power based on the fact they had good relations with the police and any time they took a dislike to someone, they could always arrange for the police to give a good beating to that person and generally harassed them by picking them up and taking them to the nearest police stations (in the towns) and keeping them locked up while their lands, families and livelihood deteriorated. The Lambardars and Zaildars were invariable large landlords.

These people were referred to by people in derogatory fashion as “Sarkar de chamche” (the side kicks of the government) or ‘Toadis’ (those who had sold out). These were highly insulting terms and were of course muttered under ones breath or among trusted people. Invariably the term was used to describe all members of the household and event heir children. Thus as a young child, I picked up these terms, not knowing what ‘government’ or ‘sold out’ meant but knowing that I had the means of deride some of the rich children but also knowing that I should be careful where I uttered these.

Father – General : My father was very religious and strict authoritarian. He was also a vegetarian (no eggs either) and used to pray both in the morning and evening before eating. He would start the day by getting up before sunrise; have a bath and then say his prayers. This  daily ritual would be completed by sunrise when his day would begin. IT was without a doubt that he wanted to bring up his children in the same fashion and having the distinction of being the eldest child, it was to follow that he took a special interest in following my progress. Slaps on the face, the head, at the back of the neck and the twisting of ears was a common upbringing for smallest of infringements like making a noise while playing when an elder was resting etc. I share with my father rather large ears, but I am convinced to this day that in some part they are due to all the twisting and pulling, that I received as a child.

Father and Discipline: Once, when I was around 7 or 8 years old I became fascinated with smoking cigarettes. Along with four or five other boys from the village, who were all around the same age as me. I would buy some cigarettes with any money I had saved from what my parents gave me (invariably my mother), and walked to the outer most edge of the village. There sitting under the Pipal tree we would light up together and pass cigarettes around as if they were a ‘Hookah’ (bubble pipe).

My mother started to suspect as much and I ignored her when she told me that smoking was bad for me. The next time my father was home, she told him of her suspicions. He have guessed where we would be hiding to carry out our rebellious and ‘adult’ deed. For, one day, when I was sitting under the cool Pipal tree with my friends he came up to us. When he was still some distance away one of my friends saw him approaching and said “Oh God, chacha is coming!” As soon as I realised that he was referring to my father, I reeled as though I had been struck physically. Blood rushed to my face, my ears burned and my heart pounded. I was in complete turmoil for I thoughthe would kill me. I bolted, running away from the spot- running anywhere but where he might find me. As evening approached I made my way to my aunts house. By then, I pretended that it was just an ordinary visit. She gave me some food which I ate but all this time she kept asking me whether anything was the matter, to which I kept replying “No nothing.” As it started growing dark she took me in her lap, hugged me and asked “what’s wrong- don’t you want to go home?” Holding onto her I burst into a flood of tears and then told her everything. She comforted me by telling me not to worry and that she would explain everything to my father and make sure that nothing had happened to me. My father in the meantime had gone to all our relative’s houses looking for me and subsequently came to my aunt’s house. My aunt, feeling that the only way she could help me was to make light of the incident. As soon as my father arrived she proceeded in telling him that I had got delayed helping her and that so what, boys will be boys and that he was not to be harsh on me. One look into his eyes and I knew that boys might be boys but this particular boy might be minced meat soon. My aunt too fell silent. He just uttered one word “come!” and turned around and started walking back towards our house. I followed him, praying fervently that something might happen to him and that I might be saved. That twenty minute walk back to our house was the most tortuous period that I have ever spent in my entire life. As soon as we reached home, my father gave me the hiding of my life- slaps, blows, kicks, wacks with his shoes and all the time I was screaming. The whole village must have heard my screams. “Will you ever smoke again?” my father shouted. “No, no never!” I replied. “Yes you will, I know you will!” and the beating continued. To cut a long story short, I have never smoked in my life.

Father and corruption:
My father was totally against corruption, a fact that is also firmly etched on my mind as a result of a beating. When I was around 11 years old, my younger brother Narain and I were with my father in Pathankot where he was working at a stone quarry. It was the festival of ‘Holi’ when everyone throws coloured powder and dyes at each other and there is much merriment. A group of workers had come to our house to wish my father well. He was however, not at home and upon finding out that Narian and me were his children, gave us a rupee each saying “have fun!” My mother told us that we shouldn’t have accepted but we protested that we had profusely refused but that the workers had practically thrust the money into our hands.
Our excitement and anticipation of what we would do with that one rupee each was shattered when our father walked in and found out about the money. “Have you become corrupt now, is this what I raise you to be, do you have so little regard for my reputation; you thieving little blighters?” and so on issued forth from my father’s lips, each phrase accompanied by a wallop and endless crying and whimpering. With each hand of his twisting one of our ears, my father dragged us to the workers locality. The workers were in high spirits- drinking, dancing and singing which all came to pin drop silence punctuated only by Narian’s and my crying as my father strode into the middle of the gathering. “Who was it who have you the money!” shouted our father at us. Trembling we pointed to one of them, “Look its Holi!” said the man coming forward “Why are you being so hard on them, it’s only two rupees. Let kids enjoy themselves, we meant no harm.” My father accused them of corruption and flung the two rupees in the man’s face. The man argued tat it couldn’t be corruptions since he wanted nothing in return. My father however insisted that his children would become spoilt by becoming found of money they hadn’t got and that in the future they would look out for it. He warned the man never to do anything of the sort again and with the final command, led us off. To this day both brother and I have been wary of accepting money or gifts from anyone.

Parents and community service:
Both my parents has a special streak in them. My father was very much interest in alternative medicine and would at his own expense entertain visiting Sadhus (pilgrims) at the local temple in return for getting prescriptions from them for common ailments. He would them make these medicines and keep them in the house. Whenever anyone had minor problems like headache,stomach aches or any other aches and pains he could come up with some little remedy that could help. He did this out of interest and pursued it as a hobby, never taking any money for his efforts. Similarly, my mother who had been bought a Singer sewing machine by my father (the only one in the village) was always sewing clothes for other women. I used to get irritated and ask her why she did all this. She claimed that she liked being useful as she could pass her time as the women came to have garments sewn. It also meant that the machine was not lying idle when she was not sewing clothes. This public service or doing some good for other people without any advantage for oneself was then an important and unconscious example that imposed itself on me from both my parents at a very young age. 

The village was self-contained and everything that was needed was produced in the village. The only regular people that came from outside were the postman and the school-teacher.
School teacher: From the age of 8 pupils were taught by a teacher, employed by the District Board, called Master Karta Ram. All I can say of him is that all the hopes I had of escaping my father’s all pervading presence at home by going to school were rudely shattered when I encountered him at school.
Master Karta Ram – stiff, starchy and exceedingly proper in everything he did, his walk (measures and dignified – you could not even imagine him hurrying or out of breath and as to stumbling, God forbid, that would not be Karta Ram at all) to his voice- measured with each syllable clearly pronounces, as if set ins tone in permanent harshness totally devoid of any compassion.
The hours were roughly 7.30 am to 11.30 A.M. and 1 P.M. to 5 P.M, eight hours in all for six days of the week were resented by all of us children as it reduced out play time. By the time we got back in the evening, light would begin to start fading, giving us hardly 1.5 hours of play. Even on Sundays when there was no school we were lumbered with helping around the house – taking flour to be ground and other like chores. It was no fun being a child in Kat Khar kalaan village I can tell you.

School: There was a famous festival, the ‘Jhandi Mela’ which used to take place close to a ‘Gurdwara’ (Sikh Temple) called Jhanda Sahib. Every year, all of us children used to look forward to its stalls, musicians, wrestling, tugs of war and other entertainments. We were horrified when Masterji told us that we had to come to school after the postman came. This meant that half the day would be gone and was too dreadful for words. I and 9 other boys made a pact that we would not go to school the next day but go to the mela instead. We had a great time at the mela but the following day as we reached school, Masterji was waiting for us. “All those who didn’t come into school yesterday line up over there!” he greeted us. “Now hold your ears in the cockerel position.” This was a particularly stupid and humiliating form of Indian punishment of children whereby you have to hold your ears by bending forward and reaching with your hands from behind your knees. With your head down and your backside sticking out in the air, you are meant to resemble a cockerel and is designed purely to humiliate a child. Nevertheless, on this occasion such humiliation was not enough  for Master Karta Ram, He proceeded to untangle the bucket from the thick rope which hung over the well in the middle of the school courtyard and with the rope thrashed the first boy in the line on the backside. The poor boy stumbled forward almost crashing his nose into the ground. “Steady on, don’t let go of your ears or you’ll get 10 more of these!” shouted Karta Ram. When around 3 or 4 boys had been beaten, I just kept seeing the line shortening and knew that it would be my turn soon. Rebelliousness and anger welled up inside me and I just ran from the school. Karta Ram seeing this set a few of the boys after me ordering them to stop me and not let me get away. I picked up a brick from outside the school and turned around and faced the boys. I told them that if they stepped forward I would swear to crack their heads open with the brick. My eyes were bulging wide and I must have looked really mad but quite sincere about my thread; for none of the boys advanced. I do believe that I would have seriously harmed at least one of them, had they advanced. Master Karta Ram had once been overheard saying that if you have to beat children, you must make sure that you give them such a thrashing that they’ll remember it for at least 2 to 4 months, otherwise there’s no point.

Education: I was never overly interested in education, preferring instead to play and ‘horse around,’ but the fear of my father who was very keen that I should study, kept me persevering. Whatever little interest I had in education was killed by the beatings, coercive atmosphere, lack of reasoned discourse and the ‘do as you are told’ atmosphere. Whilst it is true that hanging around at the ‘tharas’ where my grandfathers were discussing the finer points of Persian poetry of Sanskrit epics, and feeling very much that I was from a wise family although not myself understanding what they were saying, as I understood neither Persian, Sanskrit or big words. I was happiest playing with all the children, particularly in the ‘Chamaar’ (untouchables) basti and secretly eating food, especially meat, at the cobblers, house.

English Raj and Bhagat Singh: It had been decided that I was to go and live with my uncle in Lahore to complete my secondary education.

Following my fourth year exams in the 1st week of March 1931, my aunt came to the village to pick me up. I was filled with excitement at the thought of leaving the village and going to a big city for the first time. My aunt had brought a calendar with her which was rolled up amongst her things. With the natural curiosity of a ten year old, I sifted through the things when she wasn’t looking and opened the calendar. I dropped the calendar in shock as I saw a horrific picture of three men hanging from a rope. My aunt had come into the room and I asked her, ‘what is this?’ pointing to the calendar on the floor. She picked up the calendar opening it, ‘These are Bhagat Singh, Raj Guru and Sukhdev who have died for their country’
How did they die? They were hanged! What is hanged?
She explained and in fear and anger I asked, ‘But why?’ She explained that the country was under English Raj and these three has opposed that. Where is England; had been my next question. My knowledge of geography was to come later, then I had had to make do with, far away, across the oceans.’
Exasperated by all the questions I was asking, my Aunt had silenced me and bundled me into the train and we were on our way to Amritsar.
In all the many train journeys that I had taken since, that journey was marked by an absence amongst the people of noise. Many people had black strips of cloth around their arms and some were crying. People were huddled together talking quietly. I heard snippets of conversation.
People had thronged to the prison where Bhagat Singh, Raj Guru and Sukhdev were kept and in fear the British had hanged them in the night, smuggled their corpses out of the back gates of the prison and hastily cremated them at Husseniwal near the Sutlaj river. People had found out and followed to Husseniwal where their bones had been ound. I also heard that Bhagat Singh has come from Khat Kar Kalan – my village.
My Aunt wouldn’t answer my question saying I was too young and others stopped talking when I approached. So I put on a very serious expression and kept looking at different people to show them that I ‘knew’ for I was also from Khat Kar Kalan. My feelings were a mixture of horror at what had happened to Bhagat Singh, anger at the English, excitement because my journey out of the village had already proved to be a great adventure and pride that I too came from the same village as Bhagat Singh. Above all else was an insatiable curiosity to know everything there was to know about Bhagat Singh.

Curfew: One of the first English words I learnt was “curfew.” In    Lahore everyone would come into the house by 6.00pm and then no-one could go out. For two days no one could go out at all. Milk had run out in the house, so had vegetable. ‘But why can’t we go out and buy things’ I had asked my uncle. Because there is a curfew. What is a curfew? Listen you – curfew means no milk, no vegetables, no nothing, everything shut – do you understand? And he fixed me with a glare that instantly told me that any more explanations about he word ‘curfew’ would not be verbal.

When curfew was relaxed for an hour or two, uncle would go out to buy essentials, I was not allowed to go out as everyone was frightened that there might be violence outside. Even on a two hour relaxation of curfew, people would gather and demonstrations start. My uncle’s house was on a main street and I would be glued to the window watching and listening to people outside.

Bicyclist would go by ringing bells selling newspapers – “Two shot dead today – 2 shot dead...”

People were angry and some demonstrations passed the house - “Bhagat Singh Zindabad, Toadi Sarjar hai hai, Raj Guru Zindabad, Toadi Sarkar hai hai, Sukhdev Zindabad…” they shouted continuously, their faced red with anger, reigning blows in the air..

Lahore: A ten year old, who had never been outside his village, I was mesmerized by the city of Lahore. The teeming crowds,   tangas, brightly coloured lights and bazaars combined with the tingling of suspense, danger and excitement of Lahore immediately after Bhagat Singh martyrdom was a heady mixture.
I started playing truant from school, within months I had roamed through almost every alleyway in the walled city of Lahore. I joined many gatherings and meeting held about Bhagat Singh, not understanding most what was said but wanting to know all the stories and everything there was to know about this brave, daring and heroic man.

BIOGRAPHY
VISHNU DATT SHARMA 1921-1992

(1) Childhood - Age 1 to 10. see a brief account of life in Khat Kar Kalan village in excerpts from Vishnu’s unfinished autobiography 2) Middle Years - Age 10-16. see a brief account of life in Lahore in excerpts from Vishnu’s unfinished autobiography. Vishnu had got involved in his school’s students union and suffered his first imprisonment of 3 months at the age of 16. Vishnu had donned Khader (coarse cotton simple clothes) and a Ghandi cloth cap as was common amongst political activists. At the age of 16 Vishnu made his first contact with the Kirti Party (a banned peasant based revolutionary party). At the same age he started a Dehat Sudhar, (Village Reform) Committee which whilst involving youth in a village cleanliness and some adult education activities also raised political awareness.

(3) Post 1937 – The India Phase

i. Through Harbans Singh Karnana from the Kirti Party’ Vishnu made contacts with political activists in both the Kirti and Communist parties. Both parties were banned. Organisations and activists worked through the legal Indian National Congress Party ii. Vishnu took the initiative to hold a big commemoration conference on Bhagat Singh in 1937 at his village. This conference has since taken place every year to the present day. iii. Whilst being a full member of the Kirti Party, Vishnu wasactive through the Congress party becoming Deputy Secretary of the Gurdaspur District Congress Committee between 1939 and 1941.

1948 a splinter group set up in Punjab called the ‘Lal Party’ (Red C.P.) under Teja Singh Swatanter. This group was unhappy about the pace of class challenge that the CPI was putting on the newly emergent bourgeois India. Vishnu joined this group and was elected its Punjab State Secretary. Warrants were issued for their arrests and Vishnu went underground again becoming a Sikh in appearance. Known as Amrik Singh and Bladev Singh, Vishnu worked with trade unions,peasants organizations, students and in Party circles around the slogans of an end to landlordism, land to landless peasants, workers co-operatives, minimum wages and factories regulation. The ‘Lal Party’ dissolved itself in 1950 and rejoined the Communist Party, Vishnu stayed with the Communist Party until his death.

POST 1957 – THE BRITISH PHASE
i. Vishnu migrated to Britain in 1957, arriving on a Friday. On Monday morning Vishnu went with a friend and interpreter Karam Singh Cheema and joined the Communist Party of Great Britain. ii. Vishnu started work in a joinery in Uxbridge a few days later and found appalling conditions forthe workers and in particular, Asian workers. With no union, low wages and rude and oppressive managers, Vishnu started talking to his fellow workers about setting up a union, and was promptly sacked. Whilst not allowed into the factory, Vishnu continues meeting workers at the factory and clandestinely started setting up a union.Open acknowledgement by any worker of belonging to a union
would have meant the sack and so the union was set up secret until closely with Sid Easton, the Industrial Organiser for Wet Middlesex of the C.P. iii. In March 1957 the Indian Workers’ Association held its first meeting in Southall, Vishnu attended this meeting and soon becameinfluential within it. Vishnu helped organise a May Day commemoration by the IWA and marked an involvement by the IWA of participation in workers’ struggles. iv. From 1957 to the mid sixties, Vishnu was involved in various trade union activities becoming a shop steward at the Rockware factory and leading a strike there that lasted a month in 1964 as well as helping organise the famous Wolf Rubber Strike. He attended various trade union courses and became increasingly involved in the anti-racist struggle. v. From the mid sixties Vishnu was involved at a national level in the anti-racist struggle as well as being active in the CP as a District Committee member in 1968 and then a member of its executive committee and was also involved at a local level through the IWA Southall.
Vishnu became the Vice Chairman of C.A.R.D. (Campaign Against Racial Discrimination) in 1965. He was a N.C.C.I. member from 1966 to ’68 when he resigned of the Institute of Race Relations and on the  editorial board of the Race Today Collective in the late 1960’s. Vishnu deepest involvement at this time was the Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants (J.C.W.I.) an organisation that he helped to found in 1967 and became its first General Secretary. Vishnu worked with the J.C.W.I. for 10 years and remained closely associated with its work until his death. Following the J.C.W.I. Vishnu worked with the Immigration Unit of the Ealing Community Relations Council until retirement in 1986. vi. Following his retirement Vishnu was deeply involved in the anti-fundamentalist and sectarian struggle in India and on the issue of dual citizenship over which he organised a conference which attracted over 300 delegates from Indian organisations all over Britain in 1991. vii. Following his attendance as an observer at the Indian Communist Party Congress in Hyderabad, India …...in April 1992 and in the midst of a number of meetings with Indian government officials on the issue of dual citizenship, Vishnu passed away suddenly.
