Example

Indian history likewise is full of events depicting the struggle between the weak and the strong and the alternate rise and fall of dynasties and kingdoms—all sounding a warning which every one may retain in memory, but alas, forget, at the moment when it is needed most. We have no desire to dwell on the painful memories of the past. A month has wrought unexpected changes in the outlook of men and served to assuage the feelings of the outraged. The events of the Martial Law period and the real causes that led to it have been laid bare before a discriminating public and an appeal is made for an impartial verdict.
