A homge to Bhagat Singh as flashed by me on the f.b . on September 26,2010.

Bishwanath Singh :The grateful nation celebrates Birth Anniversary of Our great martyr of freedom movement Bhagat Singh today with reverence. Let us pay our homage to him and have a glimpse on my brief on his dedicated life for cause of our motherlandBhagat Singh is remembered widely as an Indian freedom fighter who was considered to b...e one of the most influential revolutionaries of the Indian independence movement. He is often referred to as Shaheed Bhagat Singh (the word shaheed means "martyr" that was conferred on him ).Born to a Jat Sikh family on the 27th of September 1907 to Sardar Kishan Singh Sandhu and Vidyavati in the Khatkar Kalan village near Banga in the Lyallpur district of Punjab of India. His family had earlier been involved in revolutionary activities against the British Raj in India, Singh, as a teenager, had studied European revolutionary movements and was attracted to anarchism and communism. He became involved in numerous revolutionary organizations. He quickly rose through the ranks of the Hindustan Republican Association and became one of its leaders, converting it to the Hindustan Socialist Republican Association .Singh gained support when he underwent a 64-day fast in jail, demanding equal rights for Indian and British political prisoners. He was hanged on the 23rd of March 1931 for shooting a police officer in response to the killing of veteran freedom fighter Lala Lajpat Rai. On 23 March 1931, Bhagat Singh was hanged in Lahore with his fellow comrades Rajguru and Sukhdev. His supporters, who had been protesting against the hanging, immediately declared him as a shaheed or martyr. According to the Superintendent of Police at the time, V.N. Smith, the hanging was advanced: Normally execution took place at 8 am, but it was decided to act at once before the public could become aware of what had happened...At about 7 pm shouts of Inquilab Zindabad were heard from inside the jail. This was correctly, interpreted as a signal that the final curtain was about to drop. Singh was cremated at Hussainiwala on banks of Sutlej river. Today, the Bhagat Singh Memorial commemorates freedom fighters of India. A museum by the name "Shaheed-e-azam Sardar Bhagat Singh Museum" has been built at his maternal village, where sand and newspaper stained with his blood and his half burnt bones are preserved. His legacy prompted youth in India to begin fighting for Indian independence and also increased the rise of socialism in India.
