Unknown India’s First Young Freedom Fighter: Khudiram Bose

The age in which youngsters dream of beautiful life. At the same age a boy raised the flag of revolt. His dream was to create a beautiful world not only for himself but for the whole of Bharat.The little boy was carrying the flag of revolt, then he was arrested one day and hanged in Muzaffarpur jail on 11 August 1908. This boy’s name was revolutionary Khudiram Bose.

Khudiram Bose was born on 3 December 1889 in Midnapore district of West Bengal. The mother who produced a promising revolutionary like Khudiram Bose was Lakshmipriya Devi and the father’s name was Trilokyanath Bose.Khudiram Bose had a radical idea since childhood, but he got the education of revolution from revolutionary Babu Satyendranath. When Khudiram Bose was 14 years old, he met Satyendranath and after that Khudiram Bose started taking breaths for the country, not for himself.Khudiram Bose left his studies in the ninth with the passion to liberate the country from the tyrannical power of the British and started dreaming of liberating the country.

In February 1906, a policeman rushed to capture Khudiram after distributing copies of a fiery leaflet called ‘Sonar Bangla’ written by the revolutionary and Khudiram’s Guru Satyendranath. Khudiram ran away punching the soldier’s mouth. This led to a case of treason against Khudiram but was released due to lack of witnesses.The fire to exorcise slavery was burning inside Khudiram and on 6 December 1907, Khudiram threw a bomb on the train of the Governor of Bengal at Narayangarh railway station, the governor survived. After this, the British kept searching for them and in the same year they also attacked two other British officers with bombs but they too escaped.In 1905, when Lord Curzon partitioned Bengal, the revolutionaries came out on the road and started protesting. The protest of the revolutionaries was brutally crushed by the Magistrate Kingsford of Calcutta. The revolutionaries were killed. Kingford was sent to the post of Sessions Judge in Muzaffarpur as a reward to suppress this protest.

The revolutionaries were upset with Kingford’s policy of repression and plans were made to kill him. The responsibility was chosen for 19-year-old Khudiram Bose and Prafullakumar Chaki. Khudiram and Prafulkumar Chaki reached Muzaffarpur to kill Kingsford.The only hand of three sisters, Khudiram Bose, raised the hand of the parents in smallness. Khudiram’s elder sister Aparupa raised Khudiram.

On 30 April 1907, the two were waiting for Kingzford to come out of Kingford’s bungalow. Khudiram Bose threw the bomb when he saw a carriage that resembled Kingford’s coach in the night. Khudiram had thrown the bomb as Kingford’s car, but that day, Kingford survived a little late leaving the club.After throwing the bomb, the two escaped from there, but the British police followed them and caught them both at the Vaini railway station. Seeing himself surrounded by police, Prafullakumar Chaki shot himself to death while Khudiram was caught and hanged in Muzaffarpur jail on 11 August 1908. According to many historians, Khudiram Bose was the youngest hanging revolutionary.The West Bengal revolutionaries were considered to be the pit. Taking inspiration from this land, great assets have done great work.The present TMC government could not properly handle the birthplace of these revolutionaries, it is far to seek inspiration.
