Freedom Fighters’ sacrifice

Defying the Shackles: Peetah’s Ultimate Sacrifice

On February 24, 1858, a profound silence enveloped the gallows where Peetah, a valiant soul from Katra, Delhi, took his last stand. Charged with rebellion during the fervent 1857 Uprising, his execution was a somber reminder of the cost of defiance against the British Raj. His Jat heritage symbolized the diverse participation in India’s quest for liberation.

The Unyielding Spirit of Nainoo Ram

Born on this day in 1892, Nainoo Ram’s life was a testament to unwavering patriotism. From a police officer in Kota to a political prisoner, his journey was marked by his leadership in Harauti Rajasthan Sewa Sangh. He championed the cause of the oppressed, striving for the abolition of Begar. His mysterious demise on October 14, 1941, curtailed a promising political career, leaving behind a legacy of resistance and reform.

The Revolutionary Zeal of Sailendra Datta Gupta

The young revolutionary from Bengal, born in 1916, faced the wrath of colonial law on February 24, 1933. His affiliation with Sree Sangha saw him charged under the Arms Act.
