Bhai Sahib Randhir Singh was one among the first line freedom fighters, revolutionaries and patriots of India. He and his companions were accused of waging war against the British in Second Lahore Conspiracy Case. Some of them were sentenced to death while majority of them were jailed for life along with the confiscation of their properties. Bhai Sahib Randhir was imprisoned, his property confiscated and sent to jail under strict vigilance. While in jail he lived only on parched gram for months on end. He suffered extremely harsh punishments like standing in handcuffs bar fetters and cross bar in jail, but bore them happily according to God’s sweet will – Tera keea meetha laagay. At the time of British Rule, Sikh prisoners were not allowed to have turbans on their heads and Kachheras to wear, which was a requirement for every baptised Sikh. Bhai Sahib went on fast in protest and remained without food and even water for forty days.
His life stands as an inspiration to millions over many generations. His autobiography will grab your intellect, but will remain in your heart.
