It’s the cliché image of the sublimely suffering homoerotic male nude for decadent aesthetes everywhere, but I couldn’t resist trying my own version of #saintsebastian today. the pose is respectfully borrowed (and redrawn-not traced!) from #Botticelli , and he’s pierced by sapphire and diamond jabot pins I got from a jewellery book. The colours have totally fried my eyes so sorry about that. Couldn’t work out how to best to fasten him to the tree, and then remembered the gold chain and the collar on the white hart in the Wilton diptych in the National Gallery, so put him in that. Then I decided on matching chain borders, which have made it into a kind of Hermès scarf version of his martyrdom, I think. Anyway. He was a soldier who concealed his Christian faith during a time of great persecution, but managed to convert many in secret. This incurred the wrath of Emperor Diocletian, who sentenced him to death. Supposedly he actually survived the archery practice and upon his recovery went back to Diocletian to warn him of his sins, whereupon he was clubbed to death. I imagine it was a mercifully quicker way to die, but probably not so picturesque. The side panels are Rothko - definitely didn’t do those...
Remembering 2nd Lt Rajeev Sandhu MVC on his 30th Death Anniversary.....
He Martyred during the IPKF operation in Sri Lanka, a two vehicle convoy moving from Madurang Keni to Mangani in Sri Lanka was ambushed by LTTE, all the 4 occupants were injured, he lost both of his legs and somehow managed to come out and crawled and took position and killed the LTTE leader Kumaran.
What an honor to be viewed as the role of the martyr.
Because they have determined that will be your role, they have no problem casting their stones at you.
Because they have determined that will be your role, they have no problem nailing your hands. ⭐
And how very beautifully tragic that the magic, depth, and determiniation located in all surfaces of your heart has been translated as a threat.
And it's all so sad because the gifts that I wish to birth to this world will have to be in solace and with the resentment yet hope for human kind. ⭐
If I was able to observe the human race as a third party entity the one and only conclusion I would come to is that humans have developed themselves to be self serving.
The empath will remain the beacon of hate. Seeking out a chemical mask in an attempt to poker face their way through life. ⭐
The biggest and best lesson from the honor of playing the martyr, as we've learned again and again like a Phoenix or Jesus Christ, is that the soul of love and kindness will rise and be rewarded for their suffering⭐
If you want to understand modern #Myanmar , you need to understand today - Martyrs’ Day. It marks the 71st anniversary of the assassination of Bogyoke (General) Aung San, the father of current elected leader Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, and (in the national story) the father of modern #Burma . He had the hopes of a fragile nation on his shoulders, but when he was machine gunned in his own cabinet room in July 1947 (some still whisper it was a nefarious British plot), alongside 7 of the country’s pre-independence leadership, the country faltered. When it finally gained independence from Britain on Jan 4th 1948, it did so without his iconic presence. He had many critics (most of all in Britain who saw him as a turncoat in #WW2 , but also among the country’s ethnics minority groups who saw him as too pro- Burman), but his legacy and presence is still keenly felt and missed here, as the crowds at the Martyrs’ Memorial prove (it’s only open one day a year). And if you want to understand the actions of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, start by reading about Bogyoke Aung San - it’s widely agreed it’s his mission she’s sacrificed so much to complete. But what that mission is exactly, is perhaps the core of the problem. #burma#history#myanmar#martyr#independence#colonialism#memorial
Víctor Lidio Jara Martínez
( 28 September 1932 – 16 September 1973)[
was a Chilean teacher, theater director, poet, singer-songwriter and political activist tortured and killed during the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet
در سال ۱۹۷۳ با وقوع کودتای پینوشه بسیاری از انقلابیهای پیشرو از جمله آلِنده به قتل رسیدند و بسیاری دیگر نیز بازداشت شدند. خارا نیز در جمع دانشجویان دانشکده فنی دستگیر شد و به همراه تعداد زیادی از دانشجویان به استادیوم سانتیاگو منتقل شد. در آنجا استخوانهای دست و انگشتهای او را شکستند و از او خواستند در حضور سایر بازداشتشدگان آواز بخواند و او ترانه «ما پیروز خواهیم شد» سرود مخصوص حزب اتحاد مردمی را خواند
در روز ۱۶ سپتامبر جسد تیرباران شدهٔ او را در کنار خیابان پیدا کردند
آخرین ترانهٔ او که حکم وصیتنامهاش را داشت، بر روی تکهای از روزنامه نوشته شده بود و توسط یکی از افرادی که از استادیوم شیلی جان به در برد، به دست همسرش رسید پنج هزار نفر این جاییم/ در این بخش کوچک شهر/ چه دشوار است سرودی سرکردن/ آنگاه که وحشت را آواز میخوانیم/ وحشت آنکه من زندهام/ وحشت آنکه میمیرم من/ خود را در انبوه این همه دیدن/ و در میان این لحظههای بیشمار ابدیت/ که در آن سکوت و فریاد هست/ لحظه پایان آوازم رقم میخورد
روحش شاد یادش گرامی

Yesterday we made our way to Alapaevsk, ca. 170 km from Yekaterinburg, to see the mine shaft where czarina Alexandra's sister Elizaveta, who had become a nun and founded her own monastery in Moscow and was doing so much for the charities in those days, alongside with a fellow nun and 5 Romanov Grand Dukes and one of their servants, where thrown a day after the Romanov execution in Yekaterinburg into this mine shaft and grenades thrown after them. Yet they didn't die but were heavily wounded, there are recollections of farmers who heard their sad singing of choral psalms half the night through. Even in such a state, the nuns still found strength to tear their gowns and care for the wounds of the Grand Dukes. Later some acid was thrown into the pit as well... A death which lasted hours and hours - the most horrid face of Bolshevism and what the Communist regime was founded upon... Elizaveta and the nun Varvara were declared Holy Martyrs after the fall of Communism and a beautiful monastery stands now in the place of their execution place 🙏💖

बचपन में अपने दादा स्वतंत्रता सेनानी श्री रामेश्वर चौधरी जी से शहीद मंगल पांड़े जी की बहादुरी के किस्से सुनकर उनसे प्रेरणा ली है। अाज उनके जन्मदिवस पर उन्हें श्रद्धांजलि अर्पित करता हूं।
क्रांतिकारियों पर चर्चा और स्वतंत्रता संग्राम के किस्से हमारे घर में आम बात है, मैने अपने ससुर स्वतंत्रता सेनानी श्री रामेश्वर चौधरी जी से शहीद मंगल पांडे जी के बारे में बहुत कुछ जाना और समझा है। आज उनके जन्मदिवस पर उन्हें याद करके गर्व की अनुभूति हो रही है। #mangalpandey#martyr
On #MangalPandey ’s birth anniversary, we remember how this valiant sepoy in the 34th Bengal Native Infantry became a revolutionary and sparked the First War of Independence. The regiment he belonged to was disbanded on 6 May 1857, soon after his hanging, as a collective punishment for all those who supported his mutiny.
It’s #MandelaDay !! On what would’ve been his 100th birthday, join me in celebrating this champion for human rights, dignity and freedom. May we all follow his example and fight for those who still are held down by the oppressive ways of society ✊🏽✊🏿✊🏻

His #father is a defender of the #HolyShrine , giving #military assistance to fighters in #Iraq and #Syria in their #battle against #terrorist groups. He is #teenage boy. One day when he returns home from school, he overhears part of a conversation between his mother and sister about the potential #martyrdom of his father in the front line. In order to make sure that his father will return home safe and sound, he makes a vow with Almighty Allah. “Salam (Hello)” is a short fiction story about the boy and his resolve to fulfill his vow. He makes a #religious vow to say hello to 1000 people so that his father would come home unscathed. The short film shows him rushing to different places, saying hello to people and receiving answers. Until midnight, the boy, with the help of his friend, records 999 hello in his notebook. The last hello is when he sees his father getting off a car while limping. The film highlights the hardship that families of fighters on the front line go through when they are away. .
