new Delhi. The birth anniversary of Shaheed Chandrashekhar Azad, the great hero of the Indian freedom struggle, is celebrating today. On this occasion, the Prime Minister of the country has also saluted him on his birth anniversary. Chandrasekhar has been included in the list of great revolutionaries. He is synonymous with bravery, patriotism and sacrifice. He had so much love for the country and motherland that he started fighting against the British from a very young age and then devoted his entire life to the independence of the country.
Took his life with his last shot
Martyr Chandrashekhar Azad said that ‘the British will never be able to hold me alive’. Azad, who sowed that seed of awe in the hearts of the British, celebrated his bravery. This was the reason that on 27 February 1931, when a whole contingent of British surrounded him in Alfred Park, no one had the courage to go near him. Not only this, he took his own life with his last remaining bullet. That is, he had shown what he had said by doing the truth.
After his death, no pharaoh dared to touch his dead body. The British shot at his dead body to ensure that he was dead. Such have been the heroes of our country who did not care about their lives for Mother India. Even at his last time, he removed Sukhdev safely from there and took iron from the British alone. That is, Chandrasekhar’s name will always be free for his valor and sacrifice.
Born on 23 July 1906
Chandrasekhar Azad was born on 23 July 1906 in Bhabra, a tribal village. His father Pandit Sitaram Tiwari was a resident of Badar village in Unnao district of Uttar Pradesh. Azad’s family settled in village Bhabra due to severe famine. His early life was spent in this village. It was here that he also learned to operate the bow and arrow. Kakori holds the name of Chandrashekhar Azad, the fearless great patriot and revolutionary involved in the robbery and the murder of Sanders, in the history of Indian freedom struggle.
Influenced by Gandhi’s thoughts
Chandrashekhar Azad was heavily influenced by Azad Mahatma Gandhi as a child. In December 1921, when Gandhiji was in the initial phase of non-cooperation movement, he was just 14 years of age. He took part in this movement at a young age. In this the British also arrested him and then presented before the magistrate. Here, the magistrate was also shaken after hearing the answers given to the magistrate’s questions.
Actually, when Azad was produced before the magistrate, he first asked his name. In response, he said ‘Azad’. The second question of the magistrate was the father’s name. Azad spoke independence. When the magistrate asked his home address in the third question, his answer was jail. That is, his answers were full of patriotism. With these answers, the magistrate was badly stung and sentenced to 15 lashes. On every whip, he kept saying ‘Vande Mataram’ and ‘Mahatma Gandhi ki Jai’. Only then was Azad added in front of his name. That is, Mamta’s perception of her country can be gauged from this incident.
