मैं जला हुआ राख नहीं , अमर दीप हूँ |
जो मिट गया वतन पर, मैं वो शहीद हूँ ||

ABOUT BHAGAT SINGH AND HIS COMPANIONS
Bhagat Singh was born on 28 September, 1907 in the Lyallpur, Punjab. Bhagat Singh together with his companions Rajguru, Sukhdev, Azad, and Gopal fought for the assassination of Lala Lajpat Rai.
Bhagat Sing became an inspiration for youngsters due to his daring adventures. He with his companions on 8th April, 1929 threw bombs over the Central Legislative Assembly by reading the slogan “Inquillab Zindabad”. Bhagat Singh coined this powerful slogan ‘Inquilab Zindabad’ which became the slogan of India’s armed struggle. And for this, a murder case was charged against them.
Bhagat Singh said ‘They may kill me, but not my ideas. They can crush my body, but will not be able to crush my spirit’.
On 23rd March, 1931 in the Lahore Jail they were hanged. It is said that Bhagat Singh was smiling when he was hanged. In fact, this was done with a fearlessness to “lowered British imperialism”. It is said that no magistrate was ready to monitor Bhagat Singh’s execution. After the deadline of the original death warrant expired, an honorary judge signed the execution order and inspected it. Their body was cremated at the banks of the Sutlej River. A big Shaheedi Mela or Martyrdom Fair is held in the birthplace, at the National Martyr’s Memorial in the Hussainwala or Indo-Pak border.
We are proud of our such heroes of Ours who didn’t even cared about their lives and has motivated so many to get the freedom that we deserve. As an Indian we can never forget what we got got just because such brave persons has sacrificed so much for us.
