On this day, 12/01/1934
#MasterdaSuryaSen was executed along with Tarakeswar Dastidar.

For almost one year Masterda was kept in jail and was subjected with extreme and inhuman physical and mental torture. All his nail's were uprooted, each and
every joints of bone in his body were broken , all his teeth's were taken out .He was beaten almost every day with bayonets and steel rods. He died much before and only his dead body was hanged .Later Masterda’s dead body was thrown in sea never to be found again.
It is wholly
wrong to evaluate the Chittagong Uprising , commonly called the Chittagong Armoury raid , as a mere youthful revolt. There is no doubt that the ulterior objective of the revolutionaries led by Masterda Surya Sen was a passionate demand for complete freedom from the fetters of
British imperialism. Masterda dedicated himself and spared no pains in building up a formidable and death defying revolutionary organisation with a patriotic band of youths who successfully defeated the might of the British Empire in the battle of Jallabad. Chittagong was free
from British domination for one day and Masterda was proclaimed as the President of Free Chittagong. Such a feat of patriotic heroism combined with prudence has few parallels in Indian History.

How many know Swami Vivekananda was a warrior.

How many know Swami Vivekananda played an important role in freedom struggle.

Let us learn about the Swamiji which Christ Loving Belur Math & Ramakrishna Mission never shares.

“Bharat is in need of Bomb
and Bomb Alone” and the Call “Rise, Awake & Stop Not Till The Goal Is Reached” was to kick out British from Bharat.
While most of us see Swami Vivekananda as a Sanyasi who spread Sanatana Dharma to the world, very few know his contribution for freedom struggle.
There are loads
of articles how Gandhi was inspired by Swami Vivekananda whereas the truth is Swami inspired 1000s of revolutionaries to take Bombs & Guns to fight against British Oppression.

Swami Vivekananda’s youngest brother Bhupendranath Datta was one of the key members of

Today is the day to recall the great tragedy that befell India 52 years ago. For the 1st time in modern world history, a head of government died in a foreign country. Lal Bahadur Shastri’s sudden demise barely two years after his taking over
as the PM shocked D nation so much so that deep down in our collective memory a pain lingers till date.
When Shastri’s body was brought home, his mother, who would die 9 months later, spotted bluish patches on her son. “Mere bitwa ko jahar de diya!” (My son has been poisoned!)
But then, doubts about Shastri’s death had cropped up even in Tashkent. On 11 January, at about 4 am, Ahmed Sattarov, the Russian butler attached to Shastri, was rudely woken up. The butler recalled his nightmare last year in an interview with Russia and India Report:

These Nationalists are jealous of a woman..
They can't digest the fact that
Grand Daughter of Hitler's admirer & daughter of a KGB agent who was born in a remote corner of Italy, for living who served Tables at a Bar in England & fell in love with Parsi-Muslim's son..
Him and crossed Continents leaving back her Near & Dear to an unknown place & with unknown faces and without communication as languages were barriers...
With all that she bore 2 kids, one from him & another (Galti hogayi, kiska pata nahi) last minute save from Jesus saved her
Life but took husband's...
Undeterred, took the reigns of oldest political party, put her legs on the throne & kept those people who licked her feet & packed, sent to oblivion who didn't.
Gradually, she owned Bureaucracy and Media and Intellectuals, organised a Pogrom & dethroned
