Bhagat Singh and his Legend (ed) J.S. Grewal

Bhagat Singh is perhaps India’s best known revolutionary. For long, he was just seen as a man with a gun in his hand but now slowly people are awakening to the fact that he was a voracious reader and an intelligent thinker who thought deep about the ailments that plagued Indian society.

This book is an anthology of essays regarding various viewpoints on/ of Bhagat Singh. The section that I liked best was where his portrayal in different literatures of India viz. Gujarati, Hindi, Marathi, and Punjabi is detailed. Now if only I can find translations of the Gujarati and Marathi texts….
