New Delhi: Bhagat Singh, one the most influential revolutionaries of the Indian freedom movement, was born on September 28, 1907. He died at a young age of 23 but left a strong impact during his lifetime. Bhagat Singh, along with Shivaram Rajguru and Sukhdev Thapar, were sentenced to death for conspiring to kill John P Saunders, a British police officer, who had ordered brutal police action on independence movement leader Lala Lajpat Rai. He is often referred as Shaheed Bhagat Singh. September 28, 2018 would be Bhagat Singh's 111st birth anniversary.

- One should not interpret the word "Revolution" in its literal sense. Various meanings and significance are attributed to this word, according to the interests of those who use or misuse it.

- The aim of life is no more to control the mind, but to develop it harmoniously; not to achieve salvation here after, but to make the best use of it here below.
