A Zeal For Martyrdom - Kartar Singh Sarabha - Book By Dr. Gurcharan Singh Muhay
From the Writers' Pen
This is a sort of homage paid by the writer to the Martyr -Kartar Singh Sarabha for his selfless service, he made for freedom of the country. The words cannot be equal to the contribution Martyr Sarabha made for the country. The best homage to martyrs memory can only be by following the path, they tread on for the maintenance of freedom for the people. And further, if we are honest towards its maintenance, their souls would be in peace. Their sacrifices were meant to save the country from the foreign yoke. The man should be provided maximum opportunities to live like human being. The life should be raised above slavery and the living standards be raised to the worth-living-conditions. They felt that the rulers were looting the wealth of the country. Having not taken the country to be their own, they were wasting the wealth of the country mercilessly. The residents of this country were not considered equal to them. They were being treated as source of production. So they felt it necessary to have our indigenous rulers to provide equal opportunity to each and every citizen. That is why they sacrificed their lives to help the Indians live honourable life. So the a small work on the life of Sardar Kantar Singh Sarah, is nothing more than an homage to his sincerity to get freedom for his fellow citizens.
