As the meaning of his name, he stood for the nation and was fully faithful towards it. He always had an ideology of socialism, anarchism, communism and nationalism but was against Gandhism which had non-violence as its key component.
Always ready for the welfare and freedom of his Bharat Mata, he did a lot of revolutionary activities and contributed as much as he can in the national movements. He also published an autobiographical discource know as “Why I Am an Atheist”.
During his Jail days he maintained a notebook in which he wrote about his thoughts and ideas. His writing were generally based on the corrosive activities being done by the British Government in Slave India.
Being patriotic, he considered nation as his everything and never counted his personal life alone. He rejected the idea of marriage and said that without independence his wife will be death.
His execution was done on the 23rd day of March 1931. He was hanged in the Lahore Jail along with Rajguru and Sukhdev. It is said that the last words chanted by him were ‘Inquilab Zindabad’.
He is loved as an idol by the youth, respected by the children and will always be remembered for his contributions and works.
Here are some images of those old days and his home.
