Patriotic Family It was not Bhagat Singh who was thefirst one from his family who fought for freedom but Bhagat Singh belonged to a family of freedom fighters where, the entire family, starting from his great grandfather, all where very Patriotic and freedom Fighters..
How was his early lifeBhagat Singh full name was Bhagat Singh Sandhu, andhe was born into a Sikh family to Sardar Kishan SinghSandhu and Vidyavati in the Khatkar Kalan village nearBanga in the Jalandhar district of Punjab on September28,1907 and he was the third son to them.The name itself speaks that he is patriotic as themeaning of the word Bhagat means "DEVOTEE" and"FORTUNATE".
School Life of Bhagat SinghHis grandfather Sardar Arjun Singh didntallow him to study at Khalsa High Schoolin Lahore because he discovered that theschool was loyal to the British authorities.So his father enrolled him in DayanandAnglo Vedic High School, an Arya Samajistschool.
A True friend to allHe had a great interest in his studies and he was ahead of the others inhis class. He was the favourite student of all his teachers.All his class- mates, liked him very much and he was their leader.During his school days big boys in the class used to carry Bhagat Singhon their shoulders to the school and back home.This was a great indication in his childhood itself, that later he wouldbecome a leader of revolutionaries, in the motto of getting thefreedom to the Nation.He used to make friends with all and naturally his companions were hisfriends.
Cont.………………He doesnt have any discrimination or separation on the basis of religion as cartmen and coolies, and the very men who swept the streets were his friends.Here is a interesting story to describe how he used to attract the peoples heart.Once a old tailor of the village who stitched clothes, delivered them at the houseand went away and his mother asked him.Mother: Who is that who brought the clothes.Bhagat Singh: My friend.Mother: What! Is the tailor, too, your friend?Bhagat Singh:Yes, every one in the village is my friendThus the ability to win the hearts of men grew in Bhagat Singh right from hischildhood.
Bhagat Singh Vs. Gandhijilet us discuss what made Bhagat Singh to movefrom the Gandhis policy of non violence tobecome a revolutionary freedom fighter.It would be interesting to hear that evenBhagat Singh do followed Gandhis way of non-violence.It was in 1919 during the Jalianwala BaghMassacre he was deeply affected.
Bhagat Singh Vs. GandhijiHis mind was deeply disturbed by this event and the next day he did not return homeafter the school hours which made his family at home waited and waited and grewanxious.Instead of going to school, he went straight to the place where the tragedy took placeand collected a bottle of mud wet with the blood of Indians and returned home.After he returned home late, his younger sister said, "Where were you all this time?Mother has been waiting to give you something to eat.“But he showed the bottle in his hand, and said,"Look here. This is the blood of our people killed by the British. Salute this.“After that he put the bottle in a niche and worshipped it with flowers.
Bhagat Singh Vs. Gandhiji Bhagat Singh was totally disturbed and lot of things were going in his mind and he wants The British to be driven out of the country. That was the time when the Indian National Congress was fighting for the countrys freedom under Gandhiji. This made the people united and motivated to fight for the freedom. After finishing his 8th and before getting into 9th standard, when he was 13, he told his father of his decision to join the movement and asked for his permission. As his father himself a revolutionary, Kishan Singh willingly gave his consent.
Bhagat Singh Vs. GandhijiBhagat Singh left the school and joined the movement. It was during this time, there was a powerful anti-foreign cloth movement in the country.Bhagat Singh took part in this movement with great enthusiasm and as a matter of fact right from his earlydays, he used to wear only Khadi.He used to collect foreign clothes every week, heap them up and late he will burn them.During that time, he had great hopes that Gandhi would bring freedom in India.But the turning point of his life was during the time when Gandhi called off this movement followingthe Chauri Chaura riot in 1922, and Bhagat Singh was really disappointed .So, disgruntled with Gandhis nonviolence action, and he later joined the Young RevolutionaryMovement and began advocating a violent movement against the British.This is the time where Both Bhagat Singh and Gandhiji were against each other only in the methodwhich they followed but the goal was same for both as they aimed at getting freedom in their ownways
What made him a Revolutionary FreedomFighterThe important part was the Chauri Chaura incident in1922, where people locked up twenty-two policementogether in a house, set fire to the house and burnt them.This made Gandhiji to end the non- cooperationmovement which was then going on in the country as hewas very sad knowing people take violence in their hands.Bhagat Singh who was 15 years old that time wasdisappointed as he couldnt accept why Gandhi gave upthe movement due to this Chauri Chaura incident.
Cont.………………… But even before that, a nineteen-year-old revolutionary, Kartar Singh was hanged by the British Government and none of these supporters of nonviolence raised any objection and that raised the question in his mind "How could nonviolence become so important now?" and these thoughts made Bhagat Singh lose faith in non - violence and non-cooperation movements. And then onwards he was very confident that armed revolution was the only practical way of winning the freedom from the Britishers Bhagat Singh as a Revolutionist.
