Without Fear: The Life & Trial Of Bhagat Singh is an intense and close look into the life and ideologies of Bhagat Singh, one of India’s well known freedom fighters and revolutionaries. Summary of the Book Bhagat Singh is one of the most revolutionary figures of the Indian freedom movement. He arrived on the Indian scene when Gandhi’s concept of nonviolence was beginning to lose its steam among the Indian people. His support of violence as well as his outright defiance of the British rule completely captivated the imagination of the youth. The daring acts of the Hindustan Socialist Republican party along with the cry of Inquilab Zindabad soon become the war cry of Indian freedom movement. Bhagat Singh was executed at the age of 23 by the British for his involvement in the Lahore Conspiracy case. However, it was only many years after his death that his jail writings came into the limelight and began to be published. It is these very writings by Bhagat Singh that make him so different from other Indian revolutionaries. These writings show us that he was not just a zealous freedom fighter, but was also a learned and intellectual thinker who was inspired from the writings of Victor Hugo, Bertrand Russell, Marx and Lenin among others. His vision did not end with India gaining freedom, but with a want to establish India as a true socialist and secular country. Why did Hans Raj turn into a British approver and betray Bhagat Singh? Was Sukhdev truly loyal? Why did Bhagat Singh resort to violence despite Gandhi’s condemnation? Written in an engaging manner, this book is rare portrait of a man who is both a great freedom fighter as well as a man of immense intellectual honesty. By commemorating the hundredth birth anniversary, Without Fear: The Life & Trial Of Bhagat Singh throws light on many aspects of Bhagat Singh’s life that have been previously questioned by many people. Without Fear: The Life & Trial Of Bhagat Singh begins with the execution of Singh and travels in a flashback mode. Moving from his childhood, it details his emotional side as well on his personal ideologies. Letters and articles written by Bhagat Singh are also provided by the author in the annexure, and these reveal the ideology and thinking of the freedom fighter.

BHAGAT SINGH (1907-1931) lived at a time when India's freedom struggle was beginning to fl ag and when Mahatma Gandhi's non-violent, passive resistance to partial liberation was beginning to test the patience of the people. The youth of India was inspired by Bhagat Singh's call to arms and enthused by the defiance and dare-devilry of the army wing of the Hindustan Socialist Republican Association to which he and his comrades, Sukhdev and Rajguru, belonged. His call, Inquilab Zindabad! became the war-cry of the fi ght for freedom. When Bhagat Singh was executed by the British after a sham trial for his involvement in the Lahore Conspiracy Case at the age of twenty-three, he was glorifi ed by the Indians as a martyr - for his youth, his heroism, and his steadfast courage in the face of certain death. It was only many years later - after Independence in 1947 - that his jail writings came to light. Today, it is these works that set Bhagat Singh apart from the many revolutionaries who laid down their lives for India. They reveal him as not just a passionate freedom-fighter who believed in the cult of the bomb but a widely-read intellectual inspired by the writings of, among others, Marx, Lenin, Bertrand Russell and Victor Hugo; a revolutionary whose vision did not end with the ouster of the British, but who looked further, towards a secular, socialist India. In this book, commemorating the hundredth birth anniversary of this iconic young man, Kuldip Nayar takes a close look at the man behind the martyr: his beliefs, his intellectual leanings, his dreams and his despair. The book explains for the first time why Hans Raj Vohra turned approver and betrayed Bhagat Singh, and throws new light on Sukhdev, whose loyalties have been questioned by some historians. But most of all it puts in perspective Bhagat Singh's use of violence, so strongly condemned by Gandhi and many others as being extremist. Bhagat Singh's intent was never to kill the largest number or strike terror in the hearts of the British through the gruesomeness of his attacks; his fearlessness was not fuelled by the empty bravura of guns and youth. It was held together by the wisdom of his reading and the strength of his beliefs.
