    all i can say a tribute to bhagat singh
    government forgets his matrydom every year but can we?

    his thinking n ways wer totally lyk r todays young generation

    not 2 shocked :shock: 2c government ignoring his contributions every year

    The gun, for him, was incidental to the mobilization of the masses against a brutal colonial rule and could never be allowed to take over the struggle aimed at making India free.

    No wonder then when he and Batukeshwar Dutt lobbed a bomb in the Central Legislative Assembly here April 8, 1929, they ensured that no one would die or even get injured. And though both men could have escaped in the ensuing melee, they surrendered to the police.

    "A saga like Bhagat Singh's is unique in the history of India's freedom struggle," said Chaman Lal of Jawaharlal Nehru University here. Given this, he is surprised the government has ignored the martyrdom anniversary:mad:

    At his trial, Bhagat Singh famously declared: "If the deaf are to hear, the sound has to be very loud. When we dropped the bomb, it was not our intention to kill anybody. We have bombed the British government. The British must quit India and make her free.":think:

    Of course Bhagat Singh was no pacifist and he played a key role in the gunning down of a police officer to avenge the death of Lala Lajpat Rai, his own hero in the wake of a police baton charge.

    But Bhagat Singh never thought assassinations would drive out the British.

    The young Sikh's statement before the judge who tried him - and Sukhdev and Rajguru who too were hanged to death with him - was a testimony to his deep and abiding commitment to his motherland and the politics he came to espouse.

    At the Lahore Central Jail where he spent his final days, the books he asked for and read included "Militarism", "Why Men Fight?", "Society at Work", "Collapse of Second International", "Civil War in France", "Land Revolution in Russia" and "Peasant in Prosperity and Debt".

    Born Sep 27, 1907, in Banga village of Lyalpur district of Punjab, his father Kishan Singh and uncle Ajit Singh were jailed by the British rulers.

    The massacre at Jallianwala Bagh on April 13, 1919,:cry1: where the British Indian Army shot dead Indians without any reason, drove him to Amritsar where he kissed the earth and brought home a little of the blood soaked soil. He was just 12 years old.

    When a group of young revolutionaries founded the Hindustan Republican Army, Bhagat Singh inserted the word "socialist" to make it the Hindustan Socialist Republican Army. He was making a point.

    By the time he was arrested, Bhagat Singh had become a legend, a Che Guevara of his time, the photograph showing him in a felt hat a collector's item.

    His popularity was such that the British authorities were reluctant to follow the rules and hang the trio early in the morning.

    The preparations to execute him on March 23, 1931, took place furtively. But an elderly prisoner who learnt about it had tears in his eyes when he broke the news to Bhagat Singh.

    Bhagat Singh, who only weeks ago had chided his father for seeking clemency on his behalf, declared with the contempt that only a fighter could have possessed: "It is a matter of rejoicing, I am prepared to be hanged!"

    As he walked out of Cell 14 to the gallows, Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru - defiant in death as they were in life - started to scream: "Inquilab Zindabad!", "Down, down Union Jack" and "Up, up national flag!"

    All others in the Lahore jail were still frantically shouting the slogans when Bhagat Singh and his friends kissed the hangman's noose before putting it around their necks at 7 p.m. The date: March 23, 1931.

    according to one of my friends...there was an agreement signe between gandhi and a viceroy of india at that time that bhagat singh could be hanged...i think it was called the irwin-gandhi pact...so according to him gandhi was responsible for bhagat singh's(R.I.P) hanging

    RIP to this man. What i really like about him is that he had no support from outside countries. What i didnt was that if he had lived longer and continued with attacks, india might have got into problems.

    :hats off:

    i read sth such me too

    as whether if bhagat singh movement was able to kick the english out of india then the gandhi side would not have been able to win the power
  11. Much respect for this man and all the others who gave thier lives to give us freedom.

    Note he was denounced as a terrorist in his day by the imperialists.

    So one should be very careful on who they call Terrorists.

    one of the main reasons that the revolt of 57 was defeated was the support that the scindhia's gave to th bits. the scindhias are traitors #1.

    and spy game, bhagat singh was a freedom fighter but no leader. he could not have thrown the brits out of india. that would be sarvarkar and nataji.

    and gandhi was a fuktard

    UjSen *#!EVIL*!!

    :p: Evryone knows that ,only this time TWO people died,the pilot and the trainer.

    MY grandad(Aircraft maintainence director Rtd.)
    told me that MiGs 21 require certain amount of precision flying,thyre shaped like a missile,(if u've seen a MiG 21)
    todays pilots don get rest. theyre under tremendous pressure,thatswhy if thers a small mistake in calculation,the plane goes outa control.

    PS: THe Whole GOverment sucks

    That is still a bit controversial,but then bhagat singhs' ways were totally opposite to Gandhis.

    its precisely because this is the 21st century that we should forget all about gandhi and abuse the hell out of/about him.

    gandhi did nothing for the country except plant that other inbred nehru in the hot seat. and ofcourse prolong the british stay in india with hsi stupidass ahimsha tactics.

    sooner india forgets about those two clowns (gandhi and nehru) the better.

    had a party and be a national level leader are two different things.

    national level leaders = gandhi, nehru on the ass clown side and sardar patel, netaji and sarvarkar on the patriotic side.

    bhagat singh's place is alongside (or slightly ahead of) "solo" freedom fighters like khudiram bose, and not a sardar patel.

    I can see what you mean but you wont by liked by the rest of IGT.

    He was half of that IMO. He got india into problems but he took india out of other problems.

    sachoo drenched in my pain again

    i know dear, m not a gandhian but wat my point is tht azaadi se badi hain desh ki pragati, unnati, desh ka naam etc etc. there's nthng much changed today too, so if we cannot honor them than shudn't say bad words too. n if u r against ahimnsa then do support terrorists in kashmir (they also say it freedom fighting), however i dont say tht dont put ur hands down, do it but against wrong , do it for self defence. i wud be brutal against brutal but killing is not the solution. wat else after this long bhaasan. yes brits gave u this precious gift of lang. sometimes i m way out fanatic with it rather embarrased :p: .

    oh yes i do like aggression like tht ;) . keep ur kool n :rock:
