Martyrs' Day or Shaheed Diwas is celebrated every year on March 23 to remember the supreme sacrifices of all the freedom fighters who gave their lives for India’s Independence from the British rule. Freedom fighters’ list is uncountable but these three pillars can never be forgotten: Shaheed Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev, and Rajguru. The names whose sacrifices bring goosebumps and enthusiasm amongst us. It is to be noted that Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev, and Rajguru were hanged to death on March 23, 1931 in Lahore conspiracy case by the British Government.
