About the Book
In the birth centenary year of Bhagat Singh, Left Word is proud to present this tribute to one of India’s most outstanding revolutionaries. Besides being a salute to this extra ordinarily heroic figure of the Indian National Liberation struggle, Bhagat Singh, Liberation’s Blazing Star seeks to situate him in his own times and come to an understanding of his legacy and its relevance today. In doing so, it argues not only agaist the Congress efforts to dilute Bhagat Singh’s revolutionary legacy and the Hindu Right’s efforts to mutilate it, butr also the extreme left’s efforts to project Bhagat Singh and his comrades as the only truly revolutionary force in the Natinal Liberation struggle, pitting them against the Communist Party. P.M.S. Garewal’s book is forth rightly argued, hard-hitting, and partisan-a fitting salute to the young martyr.
