Unsung Heroes: Bhagwati Charan Vohra

Did the British willingly want to free India? Or, were they forced to leave? Were they afraid of Indians? Were they afraid more of Mahatma Gandhi or Bhagat Singh, Chandra shekhar azad, Subhash Chandra Bose etc.? Let us correct the history of India’s freedom struggle. Let us put people in their right places. The British were fearful of the memories of 1857, the First War of Independence. They were in mortal fear of the eventuality of the Second such War with Indian revolutionaries. Let us remember those who fought and made ultimate sacrifices for this country.

At the end of October 1929, Bhagwati Charan was introduced by Kashi Ram to Kailashpati in Qudsia Gardens. At that time Bhagwati Charan was an absconder in the Lahore Conspiracy Case. Bhagwati Charan expressed a desire to meet Chandra Shekhar Azad and asked the two what the party was doing in this part of the country.

He was told that for lack of funds, the party was not able to do anything. Kailashpati said that he would endeavor to affect a meeting between him and Azad. About that time, which was the beginning of November, Vaishampayan came from Cawnpore on his way to Lahore and informed that he had come from Azad; so it was concluded by members in Delhi that Azad was in Cawnpore.

Vaishampayan also gave an address in Cawnpore to Kailashpati through which he should be able to get in touch with Azad. This address in Cawnpore was of Ram Singh who lived near a Church in Mulganj and in case the house of Ram Singh could not be located, then to get in touch with Sheo Ram Singh, who was the brother of Ram Singh and studying in seventh Class in Marwari High School.

Vaishampayan was to return from Lahore in two or three days and when he did not return so, Kailashpati sent Bhawani Singh to Cawnpore to meet Azad and to tell him that he would bring Bhagwati Charan and Yashpal to Cawnpore.
