Abstract

This article revolves around Bhagat Singh’s life as revolutionary during Indian freedom struggle. Bhagat Singh is a famous Indian freedom fighter who sacrificed his life for the cause of his motherland. Starting from his childhood till his last breath, the article includes all the important events that occurred in Bhagat's life. Mainly his two acts of dramatic violence against the British in India and execution at age 23, which made him a folk hero of the Indian independence movement. The article throws light on the Killing of Saunders, 1929 Assembly Incident, arrest, Case trial, the prison Hunger strike, and Execution. The author has tried to critically analyse the case trial and proceedings of the case and the decision pronounced and tried to build a relation of the working of the judiciary with the political events occurring at that time. Bhagat Singh was a revolutionary ahead of his time, and his ideology and intellect are evidence of that, if people of his time were able to understand and connect with his ideas and thoughts, the scenario and history of the Indian freedom struggle would have been completely different from what it is. Though today he is not present in his material form, his ideas and thoughts have kept him alive in the hearts of the youth of India.
