Shaheed Bhagat Singh Birth Anniversary And #FreedomIn2020

New Delhi: The nation is paying tribute to social revolutionary and freedom fighter Bhagat Singh on his 113th birth anniversary today.

Ironically, the very freedom for which he gave up his life is under threat today. Everyone is invoking him, those who lay down the rules and those who oppose them. On the one hand, we had the Prime Minister eulogising the freedom fighter. On the other, we had Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh leading a sit-in protest at Khatkar Kalan, the ancestral village of the freedom fighter, in Shaheed Bhagat Singh Nagar against the farm bills passed by the Parliament. The choice of the place was obviously symbolic of ‘freedom’.

Social media is full of messages from leaders and citizens alike, some poignant, others inspirational, while some others border on sarcasm.

Odisha sand artist Sudarsan Pattnaik sculpted a sand art to pay tribute to the freedom fighter.

This is how Shaheed Bhagat Singh is being remembered by the netizens.

This one takes the cake:
