Essay on “Bhagat Singh” Complete Essay for Class 10, Class 12 and Graduation and other classes.

Bhagat Singh

Bhagat Singh fought like a hero for India’s freedom from the crippling clutches of the Britishers and sacrificed his life. He was born on September 27, 1907 in the village of Banga of Layalpur district of the then Punjab. Almost all his relatives were revolutionaries who were ready to sacrifice their all at the altar of their motherland. Bhagat Singh was full of the spirit of patriotism. When he was just 14, he went to the massacre spot of the Jalianwala and collected soil from the park in his lunch box. He was very much moved by the bloodshed of the innocent people. This soil was sacred to him.

Bhagat Singh was a student of-the National College founded by Lala Lajpatrai. He fled from home to avoid early marriage. He joined the youth organisation, Noujawan Bharat Sabha. He met Chandra Shekhar Azad, B.K. Dutt and many other revolutionaries who were spreading political awareness.

The Indians wanted proper representation in running the administration but dillying dallying attitude of the Britishers infuriated them. Thus anti-British feelings were spreading. Political parties boycotted the Simon Commission and demonstrated against it. Bhagat Singh saw with his naked eyes Lala Lajpatrai being beaten by the police. He vowed to take revenge and plotted to kill the police chief Scott. A mistaken identity made him kill Saunders. He fled from Lahore in hiding.

The Britishers became more oppressive and repressive.  The police was vested with unbridled powers to crush people. In the Central Assembly hall a meeting was going on to pass the ordinance. Bhagat Singh volunteered to throw a bomb there not to cause death or injury but to tell the government that the suppression would not be tolerated. He along with Dutt courted arrest after shouting the slogan—Inquilab Zindabad.

Bhagat Singh’s treacherous friends testified that he had killed Saunders. He did not disown the crime. In his fiery statement, he gave reasons for killing. His speech was symbol of freedom struggle. He preferred to be shot dead and not to be sent to the gallows. He was hanged on March 23, 1931 when he was in the prime of his life, just 24. For the Indians he is a legendary hero. He was a symbol of supreme sacrifice and bravery.
