India celebrates Shaheed Diwas on March 23 to remember the sacrifices of three brave freedom fighters Bhagat Singh, Shivaram Rajguru and Sukhdev Thapar who hanged for launching an attack on British officials, ending up in the death of John P. Saunders. The young revolutionaries had a dream for free India that they so badly wanted but did not live to see.
Considered one of the most influential revolutionaries of the Indian Independence Movement Bhagat Singh, along with his contemporaries were hanged in the Lahore jail by Britishers. Their bodies were then cremated on the banks of the Sutlej River in Firozepur district of Punjab. Bhagat Singh could not be silenced even after his death as his revolutionary words paved the path for many young revolutionaries who wanted to free India from colonial rule and continue to inspire the youth of every generation.
Here are some of his inspirational words because as Bhagat Singh says,
“Bombs and pistols do not make a revolution. The sword of revolution is sharpened on the whetting stone of ideas.”
“A rebellion is not a revolution. It may ultimately lead to that end.”
"By crushing individuals they cannot kill ideas.”
“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".
“Every tiny molecule of Ash is in motion with my heat I am such a Lunatic that I am free even in Jail.”
“But man's duty is to try and endeavour, success depends upon chance and environments.”
