Indian freedom struggle is full of legendary heroes. Many of those heroes have been seeped away by time but their contributions have been etched into the memories of Indian people. One such legend was Khudiram Bose who defied all odds and terrified British rulers. Khudiram Bose became a martyr at a tender age of 19. His age was just a number. What many teens had dreamt of doing, he did that.

Born on December 3, 1889 in the Medinipur village of Bengal, Khudiram was son of Trailokyanath Basu and Lakshmipriya Devi. One of the youngest revolutionaries of India’s freedom struggle, Khudiram Bose led an eventful life before he sacrificed himself.
Khudiram Bose was sentenced to death on August 11, 1908 on the charges of bomb attacks. His last words before being hanged were, ‘Vande Matram’.

In 1902 and 1903, when Sri Aurobindo (who was in the earlier stage of his life a revolutionary leader and ideologue) and Sister Nivedita respectively visited Medinipur and held a series of public lectures along with secret planning sessions with the revolutionary groups; Khudiram was among the teenage student community of the town which was fired up with a burning inspiration of revolution. It was from then that Khudiram took his first steps towards choosing the path that would make him a boy-martyr. Khudiram as a student of Midnapore Collegiate School, dared to request a teacher, Hemchandra Kanungo for a revolver.

At the young age of sixteen, Bose planted bombs near police stations and targeted government officials. He was arrested three years later on charges of conducting a series of bomb attacks. The specific bombing for which he was sentenced to death resulted in the deaths of 3 persons.
