Kind your information Sir SAGARMAL GOPA was a freedom fighter of My INDIA . In fight of freedom British GOVT. was arrested him and putted in jail . in jail they were putted red chili powder in his eyes , nose, mouth, in hip and in his penis . I have read it in my education of history . can you imagine his real pain after putted that red chili in his body ? he was felt pain like Christ ( The God Of British ) .
After exhibition I were came home by car in that journey I were move to Jodhpur side and then Bikaner. in mid way of Jodhpur or Bikaner, i were observed some red color on land . that was very far to road so I was confuse and thought what was that ? that red color land was farm of chili .
