It is said that a leader is not just someone who leads people, but inspires them, instils them with motivation to do something, and makes people realise their own potential then look up at somebody else. There were tonnes of leaders around the world, who were born like any other baby, grew up like any other child, but made a mark in the history through their thinking, and left the world in despair when they died. Ludhiana has been the birthplace of many such personalities, as we’d like to call them, Ludhianvis who nailed it!
This time we’ll list the hardcore patriots who perturbed the British Rule with their acts of bravery.
The 23-year-old was hung on 23rd March 1931, along with Bhagat Singh and Rajguru. While some might be pitying them, but we’re sure, these rational and brave beings would want anything else but pity. Hung for playing an important role in the murder of DSP Saunders, the three sang their way to the gallows and kissed them. On the outside, the British might have had a brush with pride, but their souls were shaken from within on seeing such brave souls. Who won really in that moment? The British who hung them or the brave trio?
Kartar Singh Sarabha
The court that ordered the death sentence for the 19-year-old said, “He is very proud of the crimes committed by him. He does not deserve mercy and should be sentenced to death.” He was the one Shaheed Bhagat Singh took an inspiration from! Hung for his role in Lahore Conspiracy Case on 16 Nov 1915, sang his way to gallows, shattering the spirits of the British to the core.
Bhai Randhir Singh
In 1914, Bhai Randhir Singh was the one and only leader from Punjab who actively revolted against the British by being a part of armed revolt, which sought to make the best out of the opportunity while the British were busy in World War I. He was also a noted author as he wrote books on Sikh Theology.
Feeling proud yet? Their bravery inspires everyone who hears their story. We’d come back with more lists of Ludhianvis who made us proud. Till then, stay motivated, be rational and be brave!
