India our motherland has witnessed numerous martyrs for the freedom of its people.
Whenever we talk about martyrdom in our country there are some names that instantly flash in our mind. Bhagat Singh is one of the most important people when we mention about the freedom struggle of India.
Today, on 23 March in 1931, Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev were hanged by the British government. This day is till date celebrated as Shaheed Diwas in India.
At the mere age of 23, Bhagat Singh decided to fall for the freedom of the country and fought like a brave heart against the Britishers. Unlike the Gandhian principles, he had revolutionary ideas to set India free.
But apart from being a brave freedom fighter, Bhagat Singh was an amazing personality who believed in simple joys of life. He was anguished by the Jallianwala Bagh massacre that set an unusual fire within him to fight against the Britishers like a brave heart never before.
Just like any other normal man Bhagat Singh could have easily had a life of bed of roses, opted for some secured job and led a comfortable life marrying a girl for the rest of his life. But the fire in him actually made him work rigorously for the country’s freedom. Despite of number of films made on Bhagat Singh, his love life is still under the cover and not many people know about his lady love, although, he announced freedom as his bride in one of his letters to his mother.
Some people believed that there was a girl in Bhagat Singh’s life who was supposed to get married to him. After that, it is believed that she remained unmarried throughout her life and still known as Bhagat Singh’s widow. She was all dedicated to him and this strong decision of her life also defined her love towards him.
Many people do not believe this story and say that he liked the fellow revolutionary in his group, Durgawati Devi who accompanied Bhagat Singh from Lahore once. She was also a famous revolutionist and they worked together for the freedom struggle.
Also according to some of the letters that Bhagat Singh wrote to Sukhdev, you will realize that even this tough man had a soft heart and a balanced nature. He did write some beautiful poems which throw light on his philosophy towards life and love. The grace with which he used to carry himself was commendable.
The passion that this young man had at this tender age is something that youth of every era should look up to and as far as his love life is concerned even this man had a heart of gold if not for the lady but for the Motherland.
As it is rightly said,
“Unless it’s mad, passionate, extraordinary love, it’s a waste of time. There are many mediocre things in life. Love shouldn’t be one of them.”—Unknown
