The year 1924 witnessed the great train robbery at Kakori, an obscure village near Lucknow. Pandit Ramprasad Bismil, Ashfaqulla, Roshan Singh and Rajendra Lahiri were caught and hanged. Chandra Shekhar Azad, the youngest of the group managed to elude the British and later together with Bhagat Singh formed the Hindustan Socialist Republican Association (army). In 1928 HSRA made headlines when in a daring attack master-minded by Azad, Bhagat Singh and Sukhdev shot dead Saunders, a police official involved in the lathi charge on Lala Lajpat Rai.
In April 1929 Bhagat Singh and B. K. Dutta threw a bomb in the Central Legislative Assembly in protest against the passage of the Public Safety Bill and the Trade Disputes Bill. The two revolutionaries could have escaped in the confusion that followed. But they waited to be arrested so that the attention of their countrymen would be drawn to the freedom struggle through their trial. In the statement read out at their trial the two revolutionaries stated that they did not throw the bomb to kill but 'to make the deaf hear'.
On 23rd March 1931 Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru were martyred at the gallows. Their countrymen wept and fasted on that day.
In Allahabad, Chandrasekhar Azad fought a pitched battle with the police in Alfred Park and with his last bullet, shot himself. Kamala Nehru got Azad's body released and arranged for the funeral. The tree near which Azad ended his life became a place of pilgrimage till it was felled by the police.
Revolutionaries in Bengal under the leadership of Surya Sen raided the armories in Chittagong in 1930. Surya Sen, affectionately called Masterda fought many battles before he was arrested and hanged in 1934.
The revolutionary movement threw up many women revolutionaries. Pritilata Waddedar died fighting. Kalpana Dutt Joshi was given a life sentence. Bina Das took everybody by surprise in 1932 when she fired at the Governor while receiving her degree at the Calcutta university convocation.
Rash Behari Bose who masterminded many daring missions undertaken by revolutionaries had to flee the country and made Japan his home, leaving behind an able and worthy successor in Subhas Chandra Bose whose destiny it was to lead the final assault on the British.
