Chandra Shekhar Azad


India : A Revolutionary

Born : AD 1905           Died : AD 1931

Chandra Shekhar Azad will always remain immortal in the annals of history as a man who sacrificed his life on the altar of freedom. At a time when Gandhiji was busy with his Non-Violence Movement to liberate the country, a couple of fiery youngmen were dubious of his methods. They were sure, the best course was to adopt the proverbial policy of ‘tit for tat’ towards the British. They were in favour of giving the British a befitting reply for their tyranny and injustice. Sardar Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev, Sachindra Sanyal and Ram Prasad Bismil were among those who had no faith in non-violence. While Bhagat Singh was active in Punjab, Chandra Shekhar Azad was busy in UP. He was fired by the zeal to help Bhagat Singh and when the two collaborated, Chandra Shekhar Azad was given the leadership of the activists.

Azad became a member of the group which had vowed to avenge the death of Lala Lajpat Rai. British police officer named Saunders was their target. The group looted Government treasury for funds required for the movement.

Chandra Shekhar Azad was enlisted a terrorist and was under watch. He was a terror to the police. When he was surrounded in Alfred Park, Lucknow, by a strong police squadron, Azad faced them bravely for many hours. Even after his death the British officers dared not approach him. They waited for sometime to confirm his death.

Azad was born at a place called Jhabra in Madhya Pradesh. He belonged to a poor family. He ran away from home when young, reached Kashi (Benaras) and joined the freedom struggle when still young. In 1921, he received his first punishment for revolutionary activities. He was sentenced to fifteen lashes. With each stroke of the whip the young patriot shouted “Bharat Mata ki Jai” and thus confounded the officers. He was undaunted and he badly scared the British for the oppression of the Indians.
