Interesting Facts and Inspirational Quotes by The Freedom Fighter

BIRTHDAY OF CHANDRASHEKHAR AZAD: “If yet your blood is not raging, then it is water that runs through your veins. For what is the elan of youth if it is not at the service of the fatherland” – these were the words of one of the most compassionate and revolutionary freedom fighters that the country has ever seen. Chandrashekhar Azad inspired youth and helped India wrest freedom from colonial rule.

Born Chandra Shekhar Tiwari on July 23, 1906 in the village of Bhavra, Madhya Pradesh, Chandrashekhar Azad was inspired to fight for the country from an early age. Chandrashekhar Azad was only 15 when he took part in the non-cooperation movement, started by Mahatma Gandhi.

He then joined the Republican Hindustan Association, which he transformed a few years later into the Socialist Republican Hindustan Association (HSRA). A close associate of Bhagat Singh, he came to light after the Kakori conspiracy in 1925, organized by the HSRA.

On the occasion of his birthday, let’s look at some interesting facts about the hero whose name is etched forever in the country’s history:

  1. Azad was sent to Kashi Vidyapeeth in Varanasi because his mother wanted to make him a Sanskrit scholar.
  2. He became known as Chandrashekhar Azad after announcing his name as Azad when appearing in court during the non-cooperation movement.
  3. He was an expert sniper and regularly trained in marksmanship.
  4. He was involved in the assassination of Deputy Superintendent of Police John Poyantz Saunders in 1928.
  5. He died by shooting himself in the head. Police came to arrest him at Alfred Park in Allahabad from UP. He engaged in a firefight and was shot in the right leg. Struggling to escape, he, keeping his promise to always remain Azad (free), shot himself with the last remaining bullet in his gun.

Quotes from Chandrashekhar Azad
