Bhagat Singh
A collage by Shrikant Apte

Bhagat Singh

(27 September 1907 - 23 March 1931)
Bhagat Singh, a symbol of heroism, was born in a Sikh family in Layalpur, Punjab. He is a national hero who gave a new wave to the revolutionary movement in India.

His only goal in life was the destruction of British Empire. He killed Assistant Superintendent Saunders and ran from Lahore to escape punishment. He threw a bomb in the Central Legislative Assembly on April 18, 1929 and was sentenced to death on March 23, 1931.

Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru were hanged in the evening, in violation of all norms. Their bodies were not handed over to their families and were even denied a proper cremation. Due to the popular support and iconic image enjoyed by these young revolutionaries, British Government was scared of people rising up in anger. Due to this fear of revolt, the bodies were taken in the middle of the night to banks of Rawi and burnt with kerosene.
