Khudiram Bose

Khudiram Bose was a young Indian revolutionary from Bengal, born on December 3, 1889, in the village of Mohobani, under the Keshpur Police Station in the Midnapore district of Bengal. He was one of the youngest participants in the Indian independence movement against British colonial rule. Bose was deeply influenced by the notion of karma from the Bhagavad Gita and was involved in revolutionary activities from a young age. He joined the revolutionary group Anushilan Samiti and was involved in distributing anti-British propaganda and planting bombs near police stations to target government officials. His most notable act was the attempted assassination of the British magistrate Douglas Kingsford, which unfortunately resulted in the death of two innocent British women. Bose and his associate Prafulla Chaki had planned to kill Kingsford to avenge the harsh sentences he had passed on Indian freedom fighters. After the failed assassination attempt, Chaki committed suicide, and Bose was arrested, tried, and sentenced to death. Despite his young age, Bose faced his execution with remarkable courage, smiling as he went to the gallows. He was hanged on August 11, 1908, at the age of 18, becoming one of the youngest martyrs in the history of India’s struggle for independence. His legacy continues to inspire future generations, and his life is commemorated in various ways, including films and institutions named in his honor.
