Bhagat Singh (28 September 1907 – 23 March 1931) was an Indian freedom fighter, considered to be one of the most influential revolutionaries of the Indian independence movement. He is often referred to as Shaheed Bhagat Singh (the word shaheed meaning “martyr”).
Here is his handwriting sample:
Shaheed Bhagat Singh’s handwriting reveals a lot of characteristics about his personality looking through which we can easily interpret various incidents that are written and preserved in the books of Indian history.
Bhagat Singh no doubt was a people’s person. He was bent towards people. He loved being among them and people also liked him. He was expressive and took decisions through heart. The words of Subhas Chandra Bose: “Bhagat Singh had become the symbol of the new awakening among the youths …” also highlights the same. He was also nice and generous to people around him.
Bhagat Singh had an inbuilt leadership quality and self-reliance. He was an initiator, an action-taker. Though he had a confused mind.
He was not only an action-taker but also a quick thinker, a person who could handle dynamic difficult situations easily.
He was adamant and stubborn. It was very difficult to change his mind. He was also a selective listener – He listened to what he actually want to listen and not what the speaker is speaking about, which made it even more difficult to change his mind.
He liked music, literature (yes, he was fond of reading) and desire for fine things.
He was an investigator. He went deep into an issue to find out the root problem.
Overall, Singh was a people’s person, a person who was ready to go to any extent for his people and that is what made him one of the great freedom fighters of India. His ability to handle difficult situations and channeling his aggression at the right place all added towards him being a great martyr of the nation.
