Overview for Bhagat Singh: A Biography
This book, by Jitendra Nath Sanyal, a close associate of Bhagat Singh, is the first authentic work on the life and achievements of the great revolutionary. When Bhagat Singh was hanged by the soulless alien government, 1931, there was a great demand on the part of our people, specially the younger ones, to know about their 'hero'. To quench their thirst, Jitendra Nath worked day and night, literally, and produced this book - a biography of his dear friend. The book told the truth in a remarkably objective manner. Yet, the alien government proscribed it (1931) and put its author in jail for two years for doing a 'seditious thing'. It is a document of great historical value. Hence its re-issue. The book carries a learned Foreword by Shri S. Jaipal Reddy, Minister for Culture and Urban Development, Government of India.
