The Forgotten Hero : Shaheed Bhagat Singh - Born 28th September

Today, that is September 28 (some sources say it as 27th sept), is one of the most adored and respected Indian freedom fighter, Bhagat Singh’s 103rd birth anniversary. Bhagat Singh or Shaheed (Martyr) Bhagat Singh was the biggest revolutionaries of the India’s fight for freedom.

"We know that the maxim "Might is right" serves as your guiding motto. The whole of our trial was just a proof of that. We wanted to point out that according to the verdict of your court we had waged war and were therefore war prisoners. And we claim to be treated as such, i.e., we claim to be shot dead instead of to be hanged. It rests with you to prove that you really meant what your court has said.  

We request and hope that you will very kindly order the military department to send its detachment to perform our execution." These are the few lines in the Last Petition given by Bhagat Singh to the Governer of Punjab. Ofcourse as usual the Governer has given a deaf year to this Hero and was hanged on 23rd March of 1931.
