SHAHEED BHAGAT SINGH QUOTES
Every tiny molecule of Ash is in motion with my heat I am such a Lunatic that I am free even in Jail.
They may kill me, but they cannot kill my ideas. They can crush my body, but they will not be able to crush my spirit.
It is easy to kill individuals but you cannot kill the ideas. Great empires crumbled while the ideas survived.
Any man who stands for progress has to criticize, disbelieve and challenge every item of the old faith. Item by item he has to reason out every nook and corner of the prevailing faith.
Love always elevates the character of a man. It never lowers him, provided love be love.
Lovers, Lunatics and poets are made of same stuff.

We dropped the bomb on the floor of the assembly chamber to register our protest on behalf of those who had no other means left to give expression to their heart-rending agony. Our sole purpose was to make the deaf hear and give the heedless a timely warning.
The aim of life is no more to control the mind, but to develop it harmoniously.
