Bhagat Singh

Bhagat Singh was born on September 27, 1907, gave a new direction to revolutionary movement in India, formed 'Naujavan Bharat Sabha' to spread the message of revolution in Punjab, formed 'Hindustan Samajvadi Prajatantra Sangha' along with Chandrasekhar Azad to establish a republic in India, assassinated police official Saunders to avenge the death of Lala Lajpat Rai, dropped bomb in Central Legislative Assembly along with Batukeshwar Dutt. Bhagat Singh was one of the most prominent faces of Indian freedom struggle. He was a revolutionary ahead of his times.

“If the deaf are to hear, the sound has to be very loud. When we dropped the bomb, it was not our intention to kill anybody.”

“The aim of life is no more to control the mind, but to develop it harmoniously; not to achieve salvation here after, but to make the best use of it here below; and not to realise truth, beauty and good only in contemplation, but also in the actual experience of daily life; social progress depends not upon the ennoblement of the few but on the enrichment of democracy; universal brotherhood can be achieved only when there is an equality of opportunity – of opportunity in the social, political and individual life.” – from Bhagat Singh’s prison diary
