Freedom is not free. True freedom comes from various virtuous qualities such as discipline, commitment, perseverance, and courage. Because of the sacrifices of our great patriots, we are enjoying freedom today. This is an inspiring story of one of the great Indian patriotic legends.
There was a boy of age 12 in the year 1918. His name was Chandrashekhar Tiwari. Once the boy was sitting in the class. After some time he heard the slogans from outside.
He took the permission from his teacher and went outside to see what was happening. He saw a sage leading some group. Then he came to know that it was a freedom movement.
Suddenly there was a change in the situation. He saw some British officer attacking the crowd and hit the sage. This young patriotic boy felt angry to see this. He took a stone and hit the British officer. The policemen attacked the boy to catch. But he escaped from the place.
The next morning the police submitted the boy to court. The judge asked the boy to tell his name. The brave boy told his name as "Azad" which means freedom. The judge was shocked.
He asked the boy to tell his father's name. The boy replied saying "Swadheenata". Then the judge with anger asked his last question,"Tell your address".
The boy laughed and replied that he likes to be in jail and that was his permanent address. Then the judge gave him the punishment to beat the boy 12 times with a wet leather rope by a fat healthy person.
The boy told that it was a shame for his act to get only 12 so asked the judge to increase the punishment. But the judge refused and the boy was taken to the place where he should be beaten.
The boy was made naked and the man started beating. It was so hard that the boy's skin was torn. But the boy did not have tears but cried loudly "Vande Mataram". For every beat, his voice increased.
After the 12 beats, the jailer returned the boy's dress. But the boy could not wear because the body was bleeding. He was given 12 paise to put a bandage.
The boy told to give the money to queen Victoria and tell her that it was given by a young Indian patriot. The boy was none other than the great legend "Chandrashekhar Azad". Happy Independence Day!
