Symbolism of colours and the Ashoka Chakra in Indian National Flag by S. Radhakrishnan

The Indian National Flag is a horizontal three coloured flag of deep saffron, white and dark green colours. Ashok Chakra, a 24 spoke wheel in navy blue colour is at its center. The ratio of the flag's width to its length is two to three. The Indian national flag is made of Khadi. (Made of cotton or silk)

Dr S. Radhakrishnan (India's first Vice President) explained the symbolism of colors and the Ashoka Chakra in Indian National Flag :

  • The saffron colour denotes renunciation or disinterestedness. Our leaders must be indifferent to material gains and dedicate themselves to their work.
  • The white in the center is light, the path of truth to guide our conduct.
  • The green shows our relation to soil, our relation to the plant life here, on which all other life depends.
  • The Ashoka Chakra in the centre of the white is the wheel of the law of dharma. Truth or satya, dharma or virtue ought to be the controlling principle of those who work under this flag.
  • The wheel denotes motion. There is death in stagnation. There is life in movement. India should no more resist change, it must move and go forward. The wheel represents the dynamism of a peaceful change.

Sukhdev Thapar (1907-1931)

Sukhdev Thapar, an Indian revolutionary, was born on 15 May, 1907 in the Chaura Bazar area called Nau Ghara (nine houses), Ludhiana. He was an Indian freedom fighter who lived from 15 May 1907 to March 23, 1931. The name of his father was Sh. Ram Lal and Mother was Smt. Ralli Devi. Sukhdev was organiser of revolutionary party in Punjab. That is why the conspiracy case constituted by British Colonial Government was waging war against King George and it was crown verses Sukhdev. It was for this reason that he was sentenced to death by a special tribunal the proceedings of which were bycotted by the accused persons because of biased and colonial attitude of the judges. He is best known as an accomplice of Bhagat Singh and Shivaram Rajguru in the killing of a British police officer in 1928 in order to take revenge for the death of veteran leader Lala Lajpat Rai due to excessive police beating. All three were hanged in Lahore Central Jail on March 23, 1931 in the evening at 7.33 pm against all norms of hanging. The dead bodies were secretly taken away by breaking the back walls of jail and were seceretly burnt on the banks of River Satluj near Firozepur about 50 miles away from Lahore. The bodies were cut into pieces to make the burial quick.

Sukhdev was an active member of the Hindustan Socialist Republican Association, being one of the seniormost leaders. He is known to have started study circles at National College (Lahore) in order to delve into India's past as well as to scrutinize the finer aspects of the world revolutionary literature and Russian Revolution. He along with Bhagat Singh, Comrade Ram Chandra and Bhagwati Charan Vohra started Naujawan Bharat Sabha at Lahore. The main aims of this organization were to activate youth for freedom struggle, inculcate a rational scientific attitude, fight communalism and end the practice of untouchability. Sukhdev also participated in the 1929 Prison hunger strike to protest against the inhuman treatment meted out to the inmates.

His letter to Mahatma Gandhi written just prior to his hanging, protesting against the latter's disapproval of revolutionary tactics, throws light on the disparities between the two major schools of thought among Indian freedom fighers. However, Hansraj Vohra - the man who gave the clinching testimony that resulted in the hanging of the trio, claimed that Sukhdev had himself turned an approver. Nevertheless, this relatively baseless contention does not detract from the tremendous courage, patriotism and self-sacrifice that Sukhdev Thapar embodifies, as is evident in the recent naming of a school after him in Ludhiana.

Sukhdev’s letter to Gandhi is also a fine reflection of his ideals. “The aim of revolutionaries is to establish a socialist republic in the country. There is no possibility of even a slight amendment to this goal. I think you believe the revolutionaries are irrational people who enjoy destructive actions. I want to tell you that the truth is quite the opposite. They know their responsibilities and they hold the constructive elements high in their revolutionary constitution even though in the present circumstances, they have to attend to their destructive side only,” he wrote.

तुझ पे दिल क़ुरबान

ऐ मेरे प्यारे वतन, ऐ मेरे बिछड़े चमन
तुझ पे दिल क़ुरबान
तू ही मेरी आरज़ू, तू ही मेरी आबरू
तू ही मेरी जान

(तेरे दामन से जो आए उन हवाओं को सलाम
चूम लूँ मैं उस ज़ुबाँ को जिसपे आए तेरा नाम ) - २
सबसे प्यारी सुबह तेरी
सबसे रंगीं तेरी शाम
तुझ पे दिल क़ुरबान ...

(माँ का दिल बनके कभी सीने से लग जाता है तू
और कभी नन्हीं सी बेटी बन के याद आता है तू ) - २
जितना याद आता है मुझको
उतना तड़पाता है तू
तुझ पे दिल क़ुरबान ...

(छोड़ कर तेरी ज़मीं को दूर आ पहुंचे हैं हम
फिर भी है ये ही तमन्ना तेरे ज़र्रों की क़सम ) - २
हम जहाँ पैदा हुए
उस जगह पे ही निकले दम
तुझ पे दिल क़ुरबान ...

माँ मुझे सैनिक बना दो...

माँ मुझे सैनिक बना दो...
चाहता रणभूमि को जाना
मुझे तलवार ला दो

आज सुनना चाहता हूँ
मैं न परियों की कहानी
आज मुझसे मत कहो
था एक राजा एक रानी
किंतु राणा की, शिवा की
शक्ति तुम मुझमें जगा दो।
माँ मुझे सैनिक बना दो...

जो उठाए भूल कर भी
आँख मेरी मातृ-भू पर
मैं उड़ा दूँ शीश उसका
वह मुझे कौ‍शल सिखा दो।
माँ मुझे सैनिक बना दो..

शत्रुदल के प्रबल बादल
देश के नभ पर रहे घिर
आँसुओं से मार्ग मेरा
तुम न रोको, आज माँ फिर
आज तो रण-तिलक मंगल
विहँस मस्तक पर लगा दो।
माँ मुझे सैनिक बना दो..

India Gains Independence (News Video)

Journey of Subhash Chandra Bose from Germany to Japan

Subhash Chandra Bose (Left) met Hitler in Germany

Subhash Chandra Bose, popularly known as Netaji Subhash Chadra Bose was one of the greatest leaders of Indian Freedom Movement. He was a colleague of Gandhi, who was fighting against British in non Violent way. But when 2nd world war broke out, Subhash Chadra Bose thought that it was the best opportunity for India to get freedom by armed revolution. His plan was to co-operate with Germany and Japan and attack British India. He was sure that Indian soldiers in British army will rebel against the British Government as soon as his army will attack India.

British Government house arrested him, but he escaped and went to Afghanistan, and then to Germany and met Hitler. There he spoke with Hitler about his plans. Hitler assured him to help, and the first step was to give radio speeches for Indian soldiers in British army as well as common Indians who were in mood of getting freedom.

But when Hitler was unable to help more, Subhash Chandra Bose planed to go to Japan, and attack British India with Japan's help. Hitler arranged a submarine for Bose. It was a U-180 German submarine. Werner Musenberg was the Captain of the Submarine. Abid Hassan, a personal assistant and a doctor of Subhash Chandra Bose was his fellow traveler in this journey.

On 9th February 1943, the submarine sailed from Keil, to travel towards Indian ocean. When it detoured south Africa and turned to east, a British tanker Corbisconfronted. U-180 sank the British Tanker. Three days later, a Japanese submarine I-29 met with U-180 near Madagascar. Subhash Chandra Bose and Abid Hassan boarded on Japanese submarine which successfully and safely reached to Japan.

Later Subhash Chandra Bose attacked British India from Eastern front with Indian National Army, which was formed by Ras Bihari Basu and expanded by Subhash Chandra Bose.
