“If the deaf are to hear the sound has to be clear”—Bhagat Singh
The role model for every youngster of India Bhagat Singh is the brightest star of Indian freedom revolution. He was not only a revolutionary but he was also a person who had revolutionary ideas in his mind and bloods in his veins.
Born in 1907 Singh was very attracted to Marxist thinking. He visited the Jalianwala massacre just after the two hours of incident at the age of 12. From very young age he started participating in the acts for independence of the country. He was disillusioned with Mahatma Gandhi’s non-co-operation movement.
Bhagat Singh said that “Swaraj is my birth right and I will take it” he formed his party Naujavan Bharat Sabha and also joined Hindustan Republican Association which had the revolutionaries like Azad, Ashfaqullah Khan and Ram Prasad Bismil. Singh took the charge and murdered Saunders after the death of Lala Lajpat Ray. He was also involved in bomb throw incident in National Assembly.
After getting arrested he did hunger strike for better facilities for prisoners. And later on 23rd March 1931 he was hanged for the murder of Saunders.
Today when most of the people in their 20s are committing suicide after break ups and other silly reasons, Singh sacrificed his life for his country at the age of 23. We must need to think that what it took to hug the death at the age of 23. We should think that what that boy was thinking at that age that lead him to become a never dying spirit.
Catching and humiliating couples on Valentine’s Day won’t make you revolutionary like Bhagat Singh, but serve the country with large heart will be a perfect tribute to our Shaheed-e-Azam.
“Inqalab Zindabad”—Bhagat Singh
