On March 23, 1931, a trio of Bhagat Singh, Shivaram Rajguru, and Sukhdev Thapar lost their lives during the struggle for India's independence and that day in history is celebrated as Martyrs' Day. 3 Life lessons we can learn from Bagat singh and his incredible life:
Books are best friends: If some estimates are to be believed, Bhagat Singh is said to have read about 300 books while he was imprisoned from April 8, 1929, to March 23, 1931.Popular accounts also tell us that up until moments before he was to be executed, he was reading Lenin and asked the executioners to wait till he finished the book.As cliched as it may sound, books open far more doors than you can imagine. So go beyond 140 characters and read.
Be aware -- politically and socially
There has to be a life purpose: By the age of 16, he had seen enough suffering of Indians that he had made it a strong purpose to devote his life to the freedom of India. This strong purpose helped him later take courageous steps and make sacrifices which shook the whole country. Bhagat Singh is an example of how brave you become when you have a solid and definite purpose. This is one of the most inspiring lessons from Bhagat Singh’s life.
Bravery and sacrifice: When he was 17, in 1924, his family wanted him to get married. But Bhagat Singh had devoted his life to the nation, and he knew there would be many adversaries and dangers to his life. He didn’t want to leave a widow. So, he chose not to marry. But he could not make his family understand this, so he finally left his home and came to Kanpur to fight for freedom. Bhagat Singh was a proactive person because he always took action to improve the condition no matter where he was.
