Shaheed-e-azam Bhagat Singh - The Real Hero

Bhagat Singh, September 27, 1907 – March 23, 1931) was an Indian freedom fighter, considered to be one of the most influential revolutionaries of the Indian independence movement. He is often referred to as Shaheed Bhagat Singh (the word shaheed means "martyr").

Remembring the legend Shaheed-e-azam Bhagat Singh on 23rd March, Martyrdom day . I would like to share some quotes and notes by Bhagat Singh

“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." - Quote By Bhagat Singh

Every tiny molecule of Ash is in motion with my heat I am such a Lunatic that I am free even in Jail. - Jail Note Book of Shahid Bhagat Singh (1929)

One should not interpret the word “Revolution” in its literal sense. Various meanings and significances are attributed to this word, according to the interests of those who use or misuse it. For the established agencies of exploitation it conjures up a feeling of blood stained horror. To the revolutionaries it is a sacred phrase. - Letter published in The Tribune (25 December 1929)

Any man who stands for progress has to criticize, disbelieve and challenge every item of the old faith. Item by item he has to reason out every nook and corner of the prevailing faith. If after considerable reasoning one is led to believe in any theory or philosophy, his faith is welcomed. His reasoning can be mistaken, wrong, misled and sometimes fallacious. But he is liable to correction because reason is the guiding star of his life. But mere faith and blind faith is dangerous: it dulls the brain, and makes a man reactionary. - Why I am an atheist? (1930)

Merciless criticism and independent thinking are the two necessary traits of revolutionary thinking.

~ Bhagat Singh Quotes

We have already very many such leaders who spare some evening hours for delivering speeches. They are useless. We require ? to use the term so dear to Lenin ? the “professional revolutionaries”. The whole-time workers who have no other ambitions or life-work except the revolution.

Crush your individuality first. Shake off the dreams of personal comfort. Then start to work. Inch by inch you shall have to proceed. It needs courage, perseverance and very strong determination. No difficulties and no hardships shall discourage you. No failure and betrayals shall dishearten you. No travails (!) imposed upon you shall snuff out the revolutionary will in you. Through the ordeal of sufferings and sacrifice you shall come out victorious. And these individual victories shall be the valuable assets of the revolution.

By "Revolution", we mean the ultimate establishment of an order of society which may not be threatened by such breakdown, and in which the sovereignty of the proletariat should be recognized and a world federation should redeem humanity from the bondage of capitalism and misery of imperial wars. - As quoted in Bhagat Singh and His Ideology (1981) by Shiri Ram Bakshi 

“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; and not to realise truth, beauty and good only in contemplation, but also in the actual experience of daily life; social progress depends not upon the ennoblement of the few but on the enrichment of democracy; universal brotherhood can be achieved only when there is an equality of opportunity - of opportunity in the social, political and individual life"  
- from Bhagat Singh's prison diary, p. 124

Love always elevates the character of man. It never lowers him, provided love be love. - Bhagat Singh

War is war ; come what may, there must be no hesitation or loss of time.

Hesitation on the part of the leaders, and felt by their followers , is generally harmful in politics; but in the case of an armed insurrection, it is a deadly danger.

I am a man and all that affects mankind concerns me
