I am sure many of you won’t be knowing the significance of 23rd March or you must have simply forgotten. Seventy-nine years ago (in 1931) on this very day three bravest youngsters named Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru happily accepted death from the hands of the British just to motivate their countrymen to fight for their freedom. This was the biggest and the most extreme sacrifice in Indian history. Sadly, their contribution is hardly remembered today. People like Gandhi, Nehru, Vallabhbhai Patel, etc always hog the limelight when it comes to the list of freedom fighters while these three bravehearts hardly get mention.
My heartiest pranaam to the three greats on the 79th anniversary of their shahadat!
Below are some of the rare and real photographs of Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru.
