Dr. Satya Pal and Shivkar Talpade

Dr. Satya Pal Singh, just a fortnight into his induction as junior HRD minister, had a taste of Left-Liberal Cabal's viciousness when he was lampooned for remarking that it was an Indian, and not Wright Brothers, who invented plane in 1895, a good eight years before.

The usual suspects--NDTV , The Wire and Lutyens' Media--laid into the upright and erudite minister through hacks breeding in their cesspool. Spiteful headlines and ornery punchlines were stuffed in cadaver of philosophy. Little thought was given to an officer and a gentleman--whose long-stint as a police officer is the stuff of a legend. Nor the Minister's academic background--an Mphil in Chemistry--deserved a second thought from these stone-pelters.

The Wire in particular---a prototype of Scroll, Huffington Post, Quint etc with anything but good of India in their mind--laid into Dr. Satya Pal Singh with a gusto. It's a painfully long read, sermonizing, forensically examining the credentials of the Indian in question, Shivkar Bapuji Talpade. The writer finds it a near heresy that Wright Brothers are not seen as ones who invented aeroplane. He chillingly asks us to be ready for a "long spell of darkness" in today's India.

So, let me break his heart. The claims of Wright Brothers are being written out of history now. There is now a clinching evidence that it was a German, Gustave Whitehead, who flew a "condor" plane in August 1901, a good two years before the Wright Brothers did it. Take the word of the "Bible" of aviation history, Jane's All the World's Aircraft, for it.

Still unconvinced? Be forewarned that lawmakers of Connecticut--a US state with no connection to RSS, if you may---have moved a Bill to get Whitehead his rightful due.

Want more heat? Whitehead's story has popped up every few decades in the last 100 years. No less that 17 eye-witnesses and newspaper reports backed Whitehead's credentials. Fourteen of these accounts have been notarized. Aviation historians say there are compelling reasons to throw out Wright Brothers' claims.

Jane's Journal assiduously researched the claim of aviation expert John Brown and declared: "(Whitehead's flight), it must be stressed, was more than two years before the Wright Brothers manhandled their flyer from its shed and flew a couple of hundred feet in a straight line"(thus) an injustice is rectified..."

Google would show you that some consider the stuff of Wright Brothers the biggest fraud in history. Reports abound that Wright Brothers didn't as much do their flight as "catapulted" it --by going doing the hill off an inclining. Folks, there is a difference between a hop and a real flight.

Now steel up for this gut in the blow, you hacks. Wrights signed a contract to give the Smithsonian Museum the brothers' plane with the clause that the museum would never declare another aircraft was the first to achieved powered flight!!!(check this link)

Aviation historian Tom Crouch says that the Wrights "stuck one clause into the contract that said if the Smithsonian ever says anybody flew before the Wright brothers, we have the right to take the airplane back.

"That clause is in fact still in the contract."

The claims of Wright Brothers' being thus grounded, let's turn our attention to Talpade who--the poor chap--has been dragged to cleaners by these unscrupulous jackals. The Wire goes to obscene lengths to deny Talpade the credit but still had to concede it was a "disputed--(and not false)--claim." In their unscrupulous rush, they concealed facts such as:

(a) There is a Wikipedia page on Talpade and his achievement which precedes Dr. Satya Pal's assertion by years;

(b) There are numerous newspaper reports, including Times of India, in the last two decades on Talpade's feat;
