Freedom Fighters’ sacrifice

On This Day: The Flames of Freedom and Sacrifice

On this day, we delve into the poignant narratives that have woven the fabric of India’s independence saga. It is a day to recall the indomitable courage and the poignant sacrifices of freedom fighters who faced the adversities of colonial oppression to secure the nation’s future.

The Unyielding Spirit of Bahal Singh

Delhi’s Revolutionary Epicenter

Bahal Singh’s residence in Delhi served as the nerve center for revolutionary activities, fostering the seeds of defiance against the British Raj. His involvement with the Congress-Socialist Party and engagement with youth and labor organizations marked him as a prominent figure in the Civil Disobedience Movement.

Incarceration and Sacrifice

On February 29, 1932, Bahal Singh’s fight for freedom led to his imprisonment in Delhi’s Central Jail. His subsequent role in the 1946 Delhi police constables’ strike resulted in another arrest, and it was during this captivity that he fell gravely ill and passed away—a martyr for India’s quest for sovereignty.

Punjab’s Sons of Valor

Narain Singh: The Akali Martyr

In the Punjab region, Narain Singh became a part of the Akali movement, opposing the corruption within religious institutions. His bravery was immortalized during the Nankana Sahib massacre in February 1921, where he received fatal wounds, his death inspiring a wave of resistance across the region.

Sadha Singh: A Babbar Akali’s Ordeal

As a fierce member of the Babbar Akalis, Sadha Singh underwent brutal torture in custody, leading to his death from the inflicted agonies on December 29, 1924. His resilience in the face of cruelty highlights the sacrifices endured during the struggle for independence.

Manipur’s Rebel, Jadonang

A Witchdoctor or a Freedom Fighter?

Jadonang, a pivotal figure from Manipur, was wrongfully branded a witchdoctor due to his influential stance against British rule. Arrested and sentenced to death unjustly, his execution on August 29, 1931, stands as a grim indictment of the colonial justice system.

Bengal’s Revolutionary Youths

Sailendra Datta Gupta’s Defiance and Despair

Sailendra Datta Gupta, involved with the revolutionary group Sree Sangha, was convicted on February 24, 1933. Unable to bear the repressive conditions of his internment, he took his own life on October 20, 1934, his actions a silent protest against the oppressors.

Sailesh Chatterji: The Intellectual Rebel

Sailesh Chatterji, a student activist and member of the Anushilan Samiti, was arrested and interned, where he continued his education despite the hardships. His untimely death as an internee on October 17, 1933, underscores the relentless spirit of the youth in the freedom movement.


The sacrifices made “on this day” across different eras and regions of India form a mosaic of bravery and resistance. From Bahal Singh’s unwavering dedication to Narain Singh’s final act of valor; from Sadha Singh’s torture to Jadonang’s martyrdom; from Sailendra Datta Gupta’s tragic demise to Sailesh Chatterji’s intellectual battle—their memories resonate with the essence of freedom and justice. As we honor their legacy, we commit to preserving the freedoms they fought for and ensuring their vision for India continues to prosper.

Feature Image: The image is a vibrant montage that combines various significant historical and cultural elements. At the center is a large Indian flag, unfurled and waving against a backdrop of a swirling portal-like shape emanating from an Ashoka Chakra, symbolizing the passage of time and historical continuity. To the left, a group of Indian freedom fighters marches forward, led by a woman holding the flag. These figures seem to represent the sacrifices made during India’s struggle for independence.
On the right, military personnel and civilians appear to be amidst a chaotic scene, possibly indicating a riot or conflict, possibly referencing the Delhi riots. Above this, a mushroom cloud from an explosion suggests a significant and devastating event. In the foreground, there’s a candle burning brightly on an open book, symbolizing remembrance and knowledge. Various objects around the book—coins, a globe, a skull, a rose, and scientific instruments—denote the richness of history and the multifaceted nature of human endeavors.
