Watan pe jo fida hoga...
Amar vo noujawaan hoga..
Rahegi jab talaq duniya...
Ye afsana byaan hoga..

It's on this day in the year 1931, the young trio of Shaheed Bhagat Singh,
Shivram Rajguru and Sukhdev Thapar were hanged to death by the
British Government in Lahore.

Their Martyrdom proved to be one of the important turning point
in the Indian Freedom Struggle and the entire Youth generation
started looking upto the active participation in the fight for Independence.

Bhagat Singh, the most charismatic and with a Lion's heart was involved
in the Revolutionary activities from a very early age and was
associated with Ghadar party in Punjab and afterward formed
Hindustan Nau Jawan Sabha and later to become an active member
of Hindustan Socialist Republic Association.


When Lala Lajpat Rai opposed the Simon Commission, he was badly beaten
by the British and Bhagat Singh and team avenged his death by killing
(though mistaken identity), J P Saunders, D.S.P in place of
the Police Suptd Scott.

The famous incidence of throwing a Bomb in the Assembly, to make their
voice heard in the corridors of British power, the famous trial,
the singing of Mera Rang de Basantee Chola and coining the term
Inquilaab Zindabaad even today fills one with such pride and courage
No wonder these men are still looked upon as Youth Icons
and Great Revolutionaries. .

Let's therefore remember them patriotically on this day of 23rd March today
and try and adapt some of the principles for which they stood

The teachings, slogans, thoughts which these great martyrs have given
to the people of India are still remembered and are relevant
even today as they were earlier.
