Sarfaroshi ki Tamanna
One of the most inspiring patriotic poem ever written...
Author: Ram Prasad Bismil > Ram Prasad Bismil (Born: 11 June 1897, Executed: 19 December 1927) was an Indian revolutionary who participated in Mainpuri Shadyantra of 1918 and the Kakori conspiracy case of 1925, both against British Empire. Beyond a fierce freedom fighter he was a patriotic poet also. Ram, Agyat and Bismil were known as his pen names which he used in Urdu and Hindi poetry. But he became popular with the last name "Bismil" only. He was associated with Arya Samaj, Shahjahanpur, where he got inspiration from Satyarth Prakash, a book written by Swami Dayanand Saraswati. He also had a confidential connection with Lala Har Dayal through his guru Swami Somdev, who was a renowned preacher of Arya Samaj.
