Today is the Birth Anniversary of the ‘Boy Revolutionary’ Khudiram Bose. Born in 3rd Dec 1889 at Habibpur, Midnapore, WB, he was the 4th child after 3 daughters. His parents Trailokyanath Bose & Lakshmipriya Debi had 2 sons earlier who died prematurely
So, in attempt to save his life, his mother gave up her worldly rights on her son & he was sold symbolically to his eldest sister Aparupa in exchange of ‘Khud” or food grains. Thus he acquired the name Khudiram.
However, though Khudiram lived, his parents died within a year of each other when he turned 7. It was Aparupa, his eldest sister who brought him up. By the time he was 14, Khudiram had already grown interest in Swadeshi movement.
