Shaheed Bhagat Singh
(28 September 1907 — 23 March 1931)
Jawaharlal Nehru acknowledged that the popularity of Singh was leading to a new national awakening, saying “He was a clean fighter who faced his enemy in the open field … he was like a spark that became a flame in a short time and spread from one end of the country to the other dispelling the prevailing darkness everywhere.”
In the words of Subhash Chandra Bose: “Bhagat Singh had become the symbol of the new awakening among the youths …”
His legacy prompted youth in India to begin fighting for Indian independence and he continues to be a youth idol in modern India.
He is commemorated with a large bronze statue in the Parliament of India, as well as a range of other memorials.
