Bhagat Singh Brief Life Story

Shaheed Bhagat Singh was born in the Punjab state (which is now Pakistan) on 28th September in the year 1907. He was a revolutionary freedom fighter who turned into a Martyr at the age of 23.

That was indeed a very young age to leave this world. Yet his remarkable deeds are still alive and he has left memories of inspiring the youth towards fighting for the nation’s freedom.

He was one in a million to have possessed the heroic qualities and created a revolution with his actions in the Indian Independence movement. His approach to fighting against the British was quite in contrast to that of Mahatma Gandhi’s path of ‘non-violence path.’

Instead, he believed that it should be a more direct and hard-hitting approach. During his revolutionary journey, he was mainly accompanied by his confidantes i.e. Rajguru and Sukhdev. Also, he was often under the guidance of Chandra Shekhar Azad. Where his phrase, “Inquilab Zindabad” was coined that later on turned to be the main slogan for India’s freedom struggle.

The British administrators were dreaded by Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev as a united clan of bravery. Bhagat Singh dedicated and sacrificed his life for the country and India achieved freedom 16 years post his death.

His two most important acts were the dramatic violence against the British Empire India and the execution which took place on 23 March 1931 when he was 23 years old. Bhagat Singh and Sukhdev were entangled in the Lahore conspiracy case for killing British police officer John Saunders and hence were sentenced to death.

Reading the story of our legend gives goosebumps, isn’t it?

“It is beyond the power of any man to make a revolution. Neither can it be brought about on any appointed date. It is brought about by special environments, social and economic. The function of an organised party is to utilise any such opportunity offered by these circumstances.”

But man’s duty is to try and endeavour, success depends upon chance and environment.

“It is easy to kill individuals but you cannot kill the ideas. They can crush my body, but they will not be able to crush my spirit.”

Motivating Quotes by Bhagat Singh

“If the deaf is to hear the sound has to be very loud.”

‘Revolution’ does not necessarily involve sanguinary strife nor is there any place in it for individual vendetta. It is not the cult of the bomb and the pistol. Bombs and pistols don’t make a revolution. The sword of revolution is sharpened on the whetting stone of ideas. By ‘Revolution’ we mean that the present order of things, which is based on manifest injustice, must change.

“The day we find a great number of men and women with this psychology who cannot devote themselves to anything else than the service of mankind and emancipation of the suffering humanity; that day shall inaugurate the era of liberty.”

  • When Bhagat Singh’s parents wanted him to settle down and get married, he left home for Kanpur.
