Description

On 10 May 1857 there was a spark of revolution in India against the British rule. It was crushed because it was not organized. Thirty years later, organizations were formed to fight against the British imperialism in India.

India got independence in 1947, exactly ninety years later and after lot of sacrifices by Indians. While Mahatma Gandhi fought the British Empire with his noble method of Ahimsa or non-violence, there were revolutionaries who gave their lives for the cause of independence, fighting the British Empire. We should not forget the sacrifice of those revolutionaries who accepted death whole-heartedly without any grudge against anybody and set an example for others.

This book is about the famous young revolutionaries who went to the gallows laughing and singing. Nothing could deter them from their committed task; neither money nor the tearful affection of their family members. They proved their mettle and left no stone unturned in bringing freedom to India.

From Author's Preface:

My father, famous writer and freedom fighter, Late P.D. Tandon helped and guided me in writing this book. He was a journalist-cum-author of repute. His name appears on forty-nine books written in five Indian languages. Besides, all leading newspapers of the country have published his articles.

I have used references from the old issues of several newspapers like Amar Ujala, Bharat, Dainik Jagran, Amrit Prabhat, Dharamyug and Swatantra Bharat. I am obliged to these newspapers. To maintain authenticity and credibility of the book, references have been verified from various publications of the Government of India and the Uttar Pradesh State Government Publications.

Although, swarmed with difficulties, I could wade through them for the noble cause of patriotism which the personalities happened to instill in me and kept it alive until the task was complete.

If this book manages to rouse even a flicker of patriotism in one child, I shall feel that my purpose has been served.
