When Pranab Mukherjee said to Police Inspector We ate the Cow | When Pranab Mukherjee said to the inspector – 'Cow then we ate'

new Delhi: former President Pranab Mukherjee There was also an anecdote related to cow in life, which may be very interesting for you. Pranab Mukherjee was born in Mirati village in Birbhum district of West Bengal. From which 2 miles away was the town of Kirnar. Though Pranab Mukherjee's family belonged to Bilvagram in Nadia, but his grandfather settled there after purchasing some land in Mirati.

Pranab Mukherjee's father Kamada Kinkar Mukherjee was well respected in the village. His father was also among those who joined the Congress after being impressed by Gandhi's charisma. Non-cooperation movement was going on, at the same time Pranab Mukherjee's father joined the Congress in 1920 itself. During this time there was also a need to go to jail and the police also used to threaten to come to his house often. In such a situation, when Pranab, a boy from a jailor, said that 'we have eaten the cow', he was quite shocked.

Pranab Mukherjee's father gradually became a devotee of Gandhiji and became very active in the Congress. The Congress handed over the area between Ajayya river to Mayurakshi river to them. His village was Mirati, about 25 to 30 miles from these two rivers. After the Lahore session, on January 26, the Congress started celebrating as 'Independence Day', every year the flag was pledged for independence and Ravi's oath was repeated.

In such a situation, even if Pranab Mukherjee's father was in jail, this program would have been held in the village. Sometimes Pranab da's mother, sometimes brother and sometimes Pranab da got this opportunity. Father's reputation had increased in that area. Whenever there was a quarrel between anyone, Pranab Mukherjee's father was called as a mediator. Pranab da was also very active socially.

There is an interesting incident during that time. Once, Pranab Mukherjee's father was in jail but a threat came to the police house to confiscate his house. However, the family had already received its information. They had sent all the valuables, grains, money, necessary documents and sang of their house to different neighbors' houses so that the police could not find anything.

At that time Pranab Mukherjee was only 8 years old. The lieutenant who came to confiscation thought that the elder might lie, but this little child will surely spew the truth.

The policeman immediately took the child Pranab aside and asked quietly that there were many cows in your house, I myself have seen them, where have you gone now? Childish Pranab replied innocently, cow? We ate them. The policeman startled and said – what are you saying? You are a Hindu, how did the cow eat? So the child Pranab replied – that father, he has been in jail for so long, so we sold all the cows to fill our stomachs.

Hearing his words of the inspector, he laughed, he smiled from there. But this matter was neither forgotten by his family nor Pranab Mukherjee when he grew up. That is why when he wrote his biography in the latter part of his life, he wrote about it with great interest in many incidents of childhood including cow talk.

However, you can also understand from this incident that Pranab Mukherjee was accustomed to face difficulties and deal with them right from the beginning, which benefited him in national level politics.
