No one wants slavery. That is why Freedom is our birthright slogan was raised when the British were trying to prove that the only thing that Indians deserved was foreign rule to guide their destiny.This freedom struggle got divided into two camps. One camp was following the principle of non-violence while the other was advocating the use of force and militancy. The latter camp wanted to pay the British in their own coin. But it was frought with dangers. The death was the price. In other words it was success or hangman’s noose or bullet. Bhagat Singh could have escaped if he had so wished. But he didn’t. He opted to explode bombs to make the deaf ears hear and got arrested. Chandrashekhar Azad preferred to lay down his life fighting the enemy. The revolutionary movement disintegrated. Subhash Bose went to Japan to carry on the battle of the independence and raised Azad Hind Fauz that declared war against the British.At last the British had to leave India as a result of all the combined efforts for freedom. Remember that we have paid a big price for our freedom.
