...And What About His Family?

Our last post was about Shaheed Bhagat Singh, the father of Indian Independence. He is so truly a hero, beloved by the Indian people. Surely his family is honoured and loved as well, eh?

Dear, dear India, she really knows how to treat her heroes and martyrs. Please read this article from the Sikh World News.


I got a couple of e-mails yesterday, expressing disdain at Bhagat Singh's atheism, his cutting of his hairs and his beard, in short, his rejection of Sikhi. For anyone with questions about that, please read this post from bajinder's blog, quotes from a translation of The Autobiography of Bhai Sahib Randhir Singh.

And for those who complained that I didn't post that picture of him in disguise in that silly hat, I simply don't like the picture. However, we aim to please, so here it is.

And here is another interesting article about him, focusing on him as a socialist.
