Today is the Punya Thithi of Jatindranath Mukherjee aka Bagha Jatin, so called as he had once killed a tiger with bare hands. One of the greatest revolutionaries, a hero whom even the British admired, after he defied them in a long encounter near Balasore. A true hero.
"Had Bagha Jatin been an Englishman, his statue would be next to Lord Nelson's at Trafalgar Square"- Charles Tegart, the British officer who tracked him down near Balasore, after he put up a heroic resistance for 75 minutes. Such was the admiration he evoked.
Bagha Jatin, was born as Jatindranath Mukherjee, at Kushtia now in Bangladesh, the ancestral land of Rabindranath Tagore, on December 8, 1879 to Sharat Shashi and Umeschandra Mukherjee. Losing his father early, he was bought up by his mother a gifted poet herself.
