“मेरे जज़्बातों से इस कदर वाक़िफ़ है कलम मेरी,
मैं ‘इश्क’ लिखना चाहूँ तब भी ‘इंक़लाब’ लिख जाता है..”

“BHAGAT SINGH”

What was your first thought after reading this name?

Umm… Let me guess! A revolutionary carrying a pistol? or simply a Nationalist?

Well, the thing is that we understand that he was a revolutionary but we never tried to understand his thoughts.

We just wear a T-shirt on which Bhagat Singh is printed or we stick a sticker on our car or bike to show how much do we respect him or know him, which we actually don’t.

“Bombs and Pistols do not make a Revolution. The Sword of Revolution is sharpened on the whetting-stone of ideas.”

It’s definitely not a surprise that most of the youth don’t even know that Bhagat Singh was a Revolutionary writer too. They don’t know that to comprehend his vision, he left a huge corpus of writing.

So, if you really want to know him and his ideas, just read these books, out of which some were written by him and some were written on him:
