When Bhagat Singh was hanged by the British on March 23th 1931, he was only 23 years. An age which most youngsters enjoy their college days with friends and family. But this boy had vowed to defeat the British and chase them out of India. The valor and courage of this boy inspires millions of Indians even today.
The revolutionary team which had people like Chandrashekar Azad, Rajguru, Bhagat Singh and Sukhdev had sent shivers down the British. Their exceptional bravery in attacking the British, inspiring youngsters was something which scared the British to an extent that they called them the biggest threat.
It was on 13th April 1919, India witnessed one of the biggest massacre that took place in Amritsar, where the British officer General Dyer ordered the murder of thousands of innocent Sikhs who had gathered to participate in the annual Baisakhi celebrations, a religious and cultural festival for Punjabi people and also to condemn the arrest and deportation of two national leaders, Satya Pal and Dr Saifuddin Kitchlew. But from nowhere the British surrounded the public garden blocking the only gate which it had and on orders of General Dyer, his troops started firing continuously for 10 minutes targeting the large crowd which resulted in the death of thousands of people including women and children.
Within the blink of the eye, hundreds and thousands were killed and the entire park was covered with dead bodies with blood flowing from every corner. This incident shook the entire country and saw the real face of the British and their intention. On the same day, a small boy who was on his way to school, as usual, heard his people speaking about the brutality that happened in the Jallianwala Bagh. The small boy who heard this immediately ran bare foot towards the park to witness the incident.
