This year marked the 82nd death anniversary of one of South Asia’s iconic revolutionaries, Bhagat Singh. His heroic struggle for a revolutionary change and overthrow of imperialism through a militant struggle has been a source of inspiration for generations. Bhagat was executed by the imperialist despots in the wee hours of March 23, 1931 at the tender age of 23, but he had left a mark in the annals of history of the class struggle in the region.

Bhagat Singh was a fervent torchbearer of the workers struggle of the subcontinent. He rejected the prejudices of caste, creed, nationality, race, gender, and, of course, religion.

Presently, with the crisis of Capitalism bringing misery, poverty and hunger to the people of the sub-continents, the political relevance of Bhagat Singh’s struggle is gaining wide acceptance among the youth of the region.

Some of us are gathering to commemorate the death anniversary of the great revolutionary Bhagat Singh. We will also discuss the class struggle in South Asia and also shed some light into events that led to the Partition of India of 1947. There will be some revolutionary poetry.

Please come for a thought provoking discussion.
