Chandra Shekhar Azad – Azad Life, Azad death


FREEDOM FIGHTER AZADA fearless fighter. A real brave. A true Indian. An ideal. An inspiration. Words are short to define this martyr. 

Azad Chandra Shekhar was born on 23 July 1906 in village Bhavra of Madhya Pradesh to Pandit Sita Ram Tiwari and Jagrani Devi. At the young age of 15 years, he received his first punishment for revolutionary activities where he was sentenced to fifteen lashes. With each stroke the son of India shouted “Bharat Mata Ki Jai”. 

He  reorganised the Hindustan Republican Association under the new name of Hindustan Socialist Republican Association (HSRA) after the death of its founder, Ram Prasad Bismil and took it to an unprecedented level.

He was a very inspirational person and is considered as a mentor for yet another Shaheed Bhagat Singh who himself was instrumental in the freedom strugle. 

Check out some of his quotes:-

If yet your blood does not rage, then it is water that flows in your veins. For what is the flush of youth, if it is not of service to the motherland.


We will face the bullets of the enemies, we are free and will remain free.

“दुश्मन की गोलियों का हम सामना करेंगे, 

आजाद ही रहे हैं, आजाद ही रहेंगे.”


He joined Mahatma Gandhi in the Non-cooperation movement at the age of 15 years. This led to his arrest and during this case he assumed and called his name Azad in front of the Judge. Azad eventually turned more aggressive and wanted complete independence by any means. Check out some of his related actions from the all famous movie Rang De Basanti.


Azad went to Allahabad where on 27 February 1931 he went to the Chandrashekhar Azad Park (Alfred Park then) to meet Sukhdev Raj. The police were notified of his location by an informer. He was surrounded with armed police and fire were exchanged. He was deeply wounded in the process of killing three policemen and wounding some others. Sukhdev Raj found an opportunity to escape in this battle. After a long shootout,  he shot himself dead with his last bullet as we wanted to be azad and untouched by the Britishers.
