Masterda Surya Sen

Surya Sen, also known as Masterda, was a freedom fighter who played a pivotal role in India's independence struggle against the British rule. Born on 22 March 1894, in the village of Chittagong, East Bengal (present-day Bangladesh), he rose to become one of the most prominent and daring revolutionaries of his time.

He was a teacher by profession and an active member of the Indian National Congress. He was inspired by the revolutionary movements in Europe and was determined to fight for India's freedom from British rule. In 1930, he led a group of young revolutionaries in a daring raid on the British armory in Chittagong, seizing weapons and hoisting the Indian flag. This bold action sent shockwaves through the British establishment and earned Sen widespread popularity among the Indian masses.

He was relentless in his pursuit of independence and continued to lead several other raids and attacks against the British, including the famous raid on the Chittagong court, where he and his comrades successfully rescued several freedom fighters from the clutches of the British police. Despite being hunted by the British authorities, Sen remained undaunted and continued his revolutionary activities, inspiring countless others to join the freedom struggle.

Unfortunately, Sen was eventually arrested and sentenced to death by the British. He was hanged on 12 January 1934, at the age of 39. Despite his untimely death, his legacy lived on and inspired future generations of Indians to continue the struggle for independence.

Today, Surya Sen is remembered as one of India's greatest freedom fighters and a symbol of bravery and determination in the face of adversity. His selfless devotion to the cause of independence and his unwavering commitment to freedom continues to inspire Indians everywhere.
