Yes i say he is forgottern.His sacrifice is no less than that of Mahatama Gandhi.If Gandhi is our father of nation than he was real son of our country.His sacrifice was true,with a single aim,that was freedom of country by hook or crook.

Notes of bhagat singh written in imprisonment

Do any hearts beat faster

Do any faces brighten

To hear your foot steps on the stair

To meet you ,great you ,anywhere ?

Are any happier today

Through words they have heard you say ?

Life were not worth the living

If no one were the better

For having not met you on the way

Any known the sunshine of your stay.! “

Some couplets in Urdu

Jfar Admi usko na janiey ga

Vo ho kesa bhee sahibe fahmo jada

Jise aish mein yade khuda na rahi ,

Jise taish mein khofe khuda na raha

Main garon se hargij nahin rota

Kinu ke mere sath jo kush kia

vo mere ashna ne kia

In todays world we have completely forgotten him.We just respect him and feel proud when we hear about him but do we really follow for what he sacrificed.In todays world when a small kid sees a 10 or 100 or 1000 rupee note he will learn about Mahatama Gandhi.Is there no place for Bhagat Singh in Indian currency.Can’t we put one of his pics in 100 or 10 rupee note.It will make our children to know him better and to follow him truely.

Had he lived, Subhas Chandra Bose could have given a new turn to Independent India’s political history. But he lives on eternally in the Indian mind, more famous after his death.

While the Gandhi /Nehru faction of Congress has garnered much of the credit for India’s freedom struggle, it is important to remember that India’s freedom movement was in fact a movement of the masses and there were a number of great leaders with fierce patriotism and  great visionary ideas who sacrificed their entire lives for the nation’s cause. We continue our series on the freedom fighters, on the occasion of Netaji’s 102nd   birthday

Known as Netaji (leader), Mr. Bose was a fierce and popular leader in the political scene in pre-independence India . He was the president of the Indian National Congress in  1937 and 1939, and founded a nationalist  force called the Indian National Army. He was acclaimed as a semigod, akin to the many mythological heroes like Rama or Krishna, and continues as a legend in Indian mind.

  1. Great work started by u. im working on similar lines to bring back the forgotten heros from the glorious past. its a long story.. but i shall certainly want to be in touch with u. thanks

  2. Hi Dude,

    I firmly agree with you.
    We have over used the Gandhi brand.
    We are not just overshadowing other great contributers, we are actually killing their personas.

    Some1 wise and nice has said that, “Its the competition that brings the best within. A healthy competition.”
    Each state according to their GDP should be allowed to print currency notes with the leaders of origin from their native. Just a thought.

  5. Good job… there r many hero’s who are forgotten. We can only remember our favorite Bollywood hero’s who are giving entertainment to us but forgotten heros who brought independence to us …

  6. We have many and many forgotten true heros of our freedom fight. Instead to remeber and find out who were true Heros our India’s foolish people are worshiping Nehru. Nehru and company has just robbed India nothing else. My Lorsd I am always wondering when will India’s people will realise the fact that Congress and Nehru’s Family has ripped of India???
