Publisher's Summary

Extolled for his extraordinary courage and sacrifice, Bhagat Singh is one of our most venerated freedom fighters. He is valourised for his martyrdom, and rightly so, but in the ensuing enthusiasm, most of us forget, or consciously ignore, his contributions as an intellectual and a thinker. He not only sacrificed his life, like many others did before and after him, but he also had a vision of independent India.

In the current political climate, when it has become routine to appropriate Bhagat Singh as a nationalist icon, not much is known or spoken about his nationalist vision. Inquilab: Bhagat Singh on Religion and Revolution provides a corrective to such a situation by bringing together some of Bhagat Singh's seminal writings on his pluralist and egalitarian vision. In doing so, it compels the listener to see that while continuing to celebrate the memory of Bhagat Singh as a martyr and a nationalist, we must also learn about his intellectual legacy. This important book also makes a majority of these writings, hitherto only available in Hindi, accessible for the first time to the English-language audience.

Know the real intellectuale-Azam

More than shahide-azam, Bhagat Singh was an intellectuale-azam, who read and embibed hundreds of books on history, philosophy, religions, economy and society and has left a rich depository of writings behind that gives a clear idea of freedom and revolution that he had-a secular, socialist and humane republic, the very negation of today's India.

Good

Narration was good. But Slsome sentences in the narration were at a different tone suddenly, and this made listening not very smooth.

Most about Bhagath Singh

A detailed Indian independence struggle by way of revolution is described well in the book. The initial efforts of young freedom fighters and their path away from the nonviolent movement is explained. The misery and hardships of the young revolutionaries and their imprisonment really make us aware of the fact about the sacrifices by thousands, and most of them might not be recorded in the history.
Good book. Well narrated. Worth listening.

A revolutionary book in itself

Amazing new things I got to know about Bhagat Singh and his evolution of thought process. Author has designed the book thoughtfully and narration is also good. Must read by every Indian Citizen and the people who want to know about the India’s Revolution.
