Inspiration for today's youths: Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev & Rajguru

2:25 PM Deepankar Pathak 0 Comments

When power is misused, it translates into violence; but when it is used for achieving one's Righteous goals, it amounts to justice. 
This revolutionary ideology was stated by the great revolutionary Bhagat Singh. ‘Any sacrifice will be inadequate to accomplish the greatest aim of freeing the motherland’, was the inspiring outlook of Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru, his associates in the freedom fight. Today is the day when these three great revolutionaries laid down their lives in their effort to achieve their goal !
Martyr Day : Inspiration for Youth


23rd March is the day that Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev attained Martyrdom. One example of the resoluteness of Sardar Bhagat Singh and his associates remains inspirational even today. In order to disgrace Sardar Bhagat Singh and his associates, the then British Government informed them,’ If you feel that you should be spared from being hanged, then you must apply for mercy.’ The spirited answer to that advice, as given by Sardar Bhagat Singh, was as follows-

“The Government says that we should apply for mercy. But why should we do so? Are we thieves or dacoits or goondas? We are political prisoners in this war for freedom. The blood of complete freedom is circulating in every blood vessel of ours. Whatever bold action we did was for the sake of freedom alone ! We may not be worshippers of non-violence; our path may not be devoid of atrocities but is it not true that we are freedom-fighters? If the government has even a fraction of justice left within it, it has to treat us as political prisoners. We will never beg for mercy.

We do not intend to face this death sentence by saying ‘Do whatever you like but spare us from being hanged’. We dislike even climbing on the foot board meant for hanging. We are brave soldiers and true men ! Hence treat us like that by either shooting us with bullets or blast us with cannons. Who wants to face such a feeble sentence as hanging? We request you to respect this last wish of ours!”

Our politicians have seemingly dismissed memories of revolutionaries’ sacrifice completely. Their martyrdom appears to have no value for those with a political agenda.
O People, though the politicians have forgotten these revolutionaries, you at least do not be ungrateful to Revolutionaries by forgetting them !

Martyr Bhagat Singh 

Born : 27th Sept. 1907, Punjab. 
Died: Hanged in the early hours of 23rd March 1931.

As a freedom fighter, he was recognized to be a standout amongst the most celebrated revolutionaries of the Bharatiya Independence movement. Hence, he is frequently alluded to as Martyr Bhagat Singh. At such a junior age, if anybody was grinning simply before being hanged to death, it was Martyr Bhagat Singh. His uncle, Sardar Ajit Singh and also his father, were both extraordinary freedom fighters, so Bhagat Singh experienced childhood in a patriotic air. 

At an early age, Bhagat Singh began dreaming for evacuating the British Empire. Never anxious about battling throughout his adolescence, he considered 'growing guns in the fields', with the goal that he could battle the British. The Ghadar Movement left a profound engraving on his psyche. Kartar Singh Sarabha, hanged at the age of 19, turned into his saint. The slaughter at Jallianwala Bagh on thirteenth April, 1919 drove him to Amritsar, where he kissed the earth purified by the saints' blood and brought back home a tad bit of the splashed soil. At the age of 16, he used to ask why such a large number of Bharatiyas couldn't head out a fistful of trespassers. 

Looking for revolutionary gatherings and plans, he met Sukhdev and Rajguru. Bhagat Singh, alongside the assistance of Chandrashekhar Azad, structured the Hindustan Socialist Republican Army (HSRA). The point of this Bharatiya revolutionary movement was presently characterized as to make Bharat independent, as well as to make a communist Bharat. 

A merciless strike by the police on veteran freedom fighter Lala Lajpat Rai at a hostile to British procession created his death on seventeenth November 1928, in Lahore. Bhagat Singh was resolved to vindicate Lajpat Rai's death by shooting the British official answerable for the murdering, Deputy Inspector General Scott. In any case he shot down Assistant Superintendent Saunders rather, confused him for Scott. At that point he made a tragic break from Lahore to Calcutta and from that point to Agra, where he created a bomb production line. 

The British Government reacted to the demonstration by forcing serious measures like the Trades Disputes Bill. It was to challenge against the death of the Bill that he tossed bombs in the Central Assembly Hall (now our Loksabha) while the Assembly was in session. The bombs completed not harm anybody, yet the clamor they made was boisterous enough to arouse an oppressed Nation from a long rest. 

In the wake of tossing the bombs, Bhagat Singh and his companion deliberately courted capture by declining to flee from the scene. Throughout his trial, Bhagat Singh declined to utilize any Defense counsel. 

Regardless of incredible well known weight and various bids by political pioneers of Bharat, Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru were agreed the death sentence and hanged in the early hours of 23rd March 1931. Their figures were cremated on the bank of the Sutlej in Ferozepur. Bhagat Singh was only 23 years of age around then. Old clocks say that in numerous spots, not a solitary hearth flame smoldered that day. 

The last section of the handout that he conveyed (and composed) in the Assembly Hall said: "We are sad that we who append such incredible holiness to human life, we who long for an extremely heavenly future when man will be appreciating immaculate peace and full freedom, have been compelled to shed human blood. Anyhow relinquish of people at the holy place of the Revolution will bring freedom to all, rendering abuse of man by man outlandish. Inquilab Zindabad (Long live the Revolution)."


Sukhdev Thapar 

Born: 15th May 1907 
Died: Hanged in the early hours of 23rd March 1931

He was an animated part of the HSRA, being one of its senior generally leaders. He is known to have begun study rings at the National College (Lahore), with a specific end goal to dig into Bharat's past and to investigate the better parts of the world's revolutionary literary works. Alongside Bhagat Singh and others he began the 'Naujawan Bharat Sabha' at Lahore. The primary points of this association were to initiate the adolescent for the freedom struggle, instill a rational scientific attitude, battle communalism and end the act of untouchability. 

His letter to Mahatma Gandhi composed only before his hanging, challenging against the recent's dissatisfaction with revolutionary tactics, tosses light on the differences between the two real schools of thought around Bharatiya freedom warriors around then.

Shivram Rajguru 

Born: August 24, 1908
Died: Hanged in the early hours of 23rd March 1931.

Shivram Hari Rajguru was conceived in a normal working class Hindu Brahmin family at Khed in Pune District in 1908. He came to Varanasi at an early age where he learnt Sanskrit and read the Hindu religious scriptures. He had an incredible esteem for Shivaji and his guerrilla tactics. 

At Varanasi, he interacted with revolutionaries. He joined the development and turned into an animated part of the Hindustan Socialist Republican Army (HSRA). Rajguru had a brave soul and dauntless strength. The main object of his veneration and love was his homeland, for whose liberation, he recognized no offering excessively incredible. He was a nearby partner of Chandrashekhar Azad and Bhagat Singh and his field of action was UP and Punjab, with Kanpur, Agra and Lahore as his central headquarters.

Rajguru was a great shot and was viewed as the shooter of the gathering. He joined in different exercises of the revolutionary development, the most significant being Saunder's homicide. Chandrashekhar Azad, Shivram Rajguru, Bhagat Singh and Jai Gopal were deputed for the employment. On seventeenth December 1928, while Saunders left his office and began his engine cycle, he was shot dead before the police base camp at Lahore by Rajguru. 


At the time of his suffering, Rajguru was scarcely 23 years of age.

Sometime in the past the precise notice of the name of the junior revolutionary blended the enthusiasms of generally Bharatiyas. We pay respect to this priceless child of Bharat, who is still an impulse to a huge number of Bharatiyas. We pay regard to this invaluable son of Bharat.
