The most nationalist voice of India which Gandhi ignored.

One of the most effective voice against British Imperialism, during India’s freedom struggle, was— Sachindra Sanyal. Gandhians (Gaandhivadi, Blind devotees of Gandhi) sought to crush this personality under Gandhi’s imaginary idealism, The communists who occupied the educational institutions of the country were only devoted to their fatherland they believed in a murderous ideology and the idolatry of their dictators. They carved such an image of Sachindra Sanyal’s character in everyone’s mind that everybody hated him, except the true nationalists because they knew what he was after and were very familiar with him. Sachindra Sanyal – The most belligerent, most patriotic, and the most visionary voice in India’s freedom struggle.


Nehru was born in a wealthy family. At the age of fifteen, Nehru went to England and attended the Harrow School there. In those days, children of the rich families in England used to attend the Harrow School. After attending the Harrow School, Nehru pursued a degree in law from Cambridge. Nehru returned back to India in 1912. Even after returning back to India, for years, Nehru’s “Knowledge about India” was limited only to the anti-Indian talk in the British newspapers and the conversation about India that took place in the British elite houses. Nehru was much more like a British youth, unaware of India and its history(the real history not the bookish one). Once he was back in India, he took up the profession of law like his father in his hometown of Allahabad. Due to lack of interest in law, he started taking interest in politics. Around 1920, a movement against the British started among the farmers of the United Provinces (now Uttar Pradesh). Around 200 farmers who came from different, remote villages came together and decided to appoint Nehru as their lawyer to present their legal case in the Allahabad court. Many of the farmers who came to meet Nehru at his home had traveled hundreds of kms on foot. Nehru decided to travel with the farmers to see their actual economic conditions. He traveled to many remote villages to understand the problems of the farmers. Nehru wrote that he had no idea about the plight of the farmers. Nehru used to travel to the villages, talk to the farmers, this was a very new experience for him, so while talking to the farmers, Nehru used to prepare many notes. Nehru used to travel in his car. (It was a great deal in India during the 1920s to own a car and travel in it. It was simply a true sign of luxury). Even nowadays there aren’t very metalled roads in the remote villages so you can easily understand what would have been the condition of the roads back in those days, people of many villages worked together to repair the road so that Nehru’s car could reach their villages. Understanding India with the help of notes like a school-going child, watching the life of a common man like a prince was it a fancy hoax or a blatant imitation of Lenin’s way of using peasants as weapons to seize power in the Soviet Union???


Mahatma Gandhi also came back to India after spending a long time abroad, mainly in South Africa. Because of his long struggle abroad

Gandhi became quite a popular personality in India. Despite his fighting image and huge popularity, Gandhi didn’t become a role model for the youth. After the end of the Satyagraha movement of 1921, Gandhi contributed nothing to the political movements that followed in India for the next 10 years. In the meantime, Sachindra Nath Sanyal and other revolutionaries kept a light of hope in the hearts of the people of India, fighting against the biggest imperialist power of the world in severely adverse conditions. Nehru, the President of the Congress, during the meeting in Lahore in 1929, also had to admit in a veiled voice that it was the revolutionary youth who did not let the torch of freedom against the British Empire in India be extinguished even in the most difficult circumstances.

Who was Sachindra Nath Sanyal :-

1. Sachindranath Sanyal as a Revolutionary

He was the only revolutionary in India’s freedom struggle who was sentenced to life imprisonment twice. Sachindranath Sanyal had a life span of fifty years out of which he spent twenty-one years in jail. Sachin Da was a close associate of Subhas Chandra Bose, Ras Bihari Bose, some of the most important revolutionaries of India’s freedom struggle. Sachindra Nath Sanyal was also the political teacher (GURU) of many great revolutionaries like Chandrashekhar Azad, Bhagat Singh, Trilokya Chakraborty, Bhagwati Charan Vohra, Nalini Kishore Guh, Baba Prithvi Singh, Rajguru, Sukhdev, Lala Hardayal, Ajit Singh. 

2. Sachindranath Sanyal as a revolutionary thinker

Sachindra Nath Sanyal was not only a great revolutionary but also a great revolutionary thinker. Sachindra Nath Sanyal was the one who created the trend of serious study of political literature among Indian revolutionaries. Sachindra Nath Sanyal wrote many articles, many revolutionary pamphlets, apart from this he also wrote books like Bandi- jeevan , Deshvasiyon se nivedan (request to the countrymen), Vichar- Vinmay (exchange of ideas) Sahitya ,Samaj aur Sanskriti , (literature, society and culture )etc. Sachindra Nath Sanyal was the founder of “Hindustan Republica Association”  Sachindranath Sanyal’s ideas were completely nationalist, completely original. His writings were greatly Influenced by Hindu ancient religious texts, Hindu sanyasis, and Hindu culture.

Bandi Jeevan:– This book written by Sachindra Nath Sanyal is in my opinion the best work written by any Indian revolutionary ever. This book got the status of Gita among the Indian revolutionaries and was translated into more than twenty-eight languages. For more detailed information about Sachindra Nath Sanyal’s life and his monumental work please visit:-

The School of revolutionaries:- 

After India’s independence school’s course books have always been written by Marxist writers. In these books only Lenin, Stalin have been glorified and only the revolutionaries influenced by communist ideology have been given place. Sachindra Nath Sanyal has been dealt with in two lines.

I spent my childhood in the hometown of Sachindra Nath Sanyal, yet my whole knowledge about Sachindra Nath Sanyal was limited only to 2 facts till my school days.

These 2 facts were -:   1) Sachindranath Sanyal was the founder of the Hindustan Republican Association. 2) Sachindranath Sanyal wrote the Book Bandi Jeevan. I knew nothing else other than these two facts about Sachindranath Sanyal, during my school days.

While graduating from Banaras Hindu University(BHU), I learned for the first time that Sachindra Nath Sanyal was a resident of Varanasi during a lecture by my history teacher in class who was discussing about the contribution of Varanasi to the freedom struggle. Ravindra, a boy in my class also had good knowledge of this subject. When the teacher left, I asked Ravindra, “Where do you get to know all this stuff from?” He smiled and said from the wall of the school!! I was confused I didn’t understand what he meant. He revealed “I have been an alumnus of the Bengali Tola School. The main building of the school has the names and information related to Sachindra Nath Sanyal and some of the revolutionaries written on it who were former students of that school”.

I had seen the building of Bengali Tola School from a distance, this school is situated on the road which links Godauliya to the Banaras Hindu University. A few days later, when I went on that route again, I remembered Ravindra as soon as I saw the school building. I parked my cycle near the school gate and went inside. The main building of the school is situated at a distance of about 10 meters from the school gate. As told by Ravindra, the names of some students and teachers were written on the wall of the main building who had made an important contribution to India’s freedom struggle.

An unfinished story that taught me a lot

About five-six years after this incident, when I started my journalism career and started writing in some magazines, a magazine company requested me to write an article on India’s Independence Day. While writing on this subject, I was thinking about what should I write next in this article when it suddenly struck me and I remembered the revolutionaries lodged in the building of the Bengali Tola School. I thought of writing a separate story on these revolutionaries. Years later, I reached the campus of the Bengali Tola school once again. I carefully wrote the names of all the revolutionaries written on the wall of the school on a piece of paper and went home. I thought this was a simple story which I will finish soon. When I was back home, I called my colleague, the great photographer friend of mine “Dinesh Bhaiya” whose name I have also mentioned in my second last post regarding the Vishwanath Corridor Project, and requested him to mail me the pictures after taking the photo of the stone plate on the Bengali Tola school.

I was addicted to reading in those days. I used to go to a library nearby and I used to think that information related to these revolutionaries will be and must be available in abundance in these libraries. I thought that many experienced journalists have become familiar with me now as I have been working with them for quite a long time, I will take help from them on this subject. I thought that I will take photographs of places related to the life of revolutionaries. I will collect information from the residents of the places related to the life of the revolutionaries. I also had a time of about fifteen days, so I was pretty sure that I would be able to complete this story comfortably in the stipulated time. But when I started working on the story I found that I was completely wrong. There was no special information available on this subject in the library near my house. Even the old and experienced journalists didn’t seem to have any specific information on this subject.

I got the biggest shock when I came to know that no one even knew about the places of residence of most of the revolutionaries. I started searching for literature, documents, and books related to this subject in the old libraries of Banaras. I would say that I was able to find some literature related to the subject but it was spread across dozens of books, so I had to study patiently and read all these books to write the story which was certainly not possible in fifteen days. Some names were suggested to me by my journalist friends, from whom, they thought I could get as much information as possible, but once again it wasn’t possible to meet all these people just in fifteen days. So I just decided to drop this idea of mine to cover this story on the revolutionaries of Varanasi and I decided that I would cover it afterwards.

Later, while doing journalism, I found the famous book Bandi Jeevan written by Sachindra Nath Sanyal in the Carmichael Library, one of the oldest libraries in Varanasi. Note: – It is also a coincidence that in the book Bandi Jeevan, Sachindra Nath Sanyal has also mentioned about the Carmichael Library. Sachindra Nath Sanyal also used to come to this library to leaf through the pages of some books. A few years back this book has been republished by a Delhi publication.

While working on another article in those days, I was introduced to Bhattacharya Ji, a homeopathic doctor, despite being a doctor by profession, his knowledge of history was commendable. During a conversation about Sachindra Nath Sanyal, Dr. Bhattacharya advised me to meet Bhaduri Ji. A few days later I reached the address that Dr.Bhattacharya had given me. I met Bhaduri’s son, I explained the reason for my visit, he urged me to sit in his dining room and wait for some time. While talking to him I came to know that Bhaduri Ji has himself been a freedom fighter and has also been imprisoned during the freedom struggle. Bhaduri ji’s was also a great scholar, his son told me that while India’s one of the greatest filmmakers and Oscar award winner Satyajit Ray was in Varanasi during the shoot for his famous film “Feluda”, he came to take some advice from his father(Bhaduri Ji) at his home. Now Bhaduri Ji was old and he had difficulty in speaking, so his son requested me not to ask too many questions from him. (Bhaduri Ji’s age was around 90 by that time) I agreed immediately. Bhaduri Ji’s son gave him support from his shoulder so that he can walk and brought him to the place where he made me sit, I also without wasting any time immediately asked whether he had ever met Sachindra Sanyal? He answered “Yes, I met him thrice” I was completely baffled by this answer of his, I wasn’t accepting this answer at all. Suppressing my excitement a bit, I asked him if there was any special thing about him that he remembered. Bhaduri Ji told me that the last time he met him was probably in 1939 near Niranjani Akhara. (I did know that Sachindra Nath Sanyal had also been an associate of Subhas Chandra Bose and had been an editor of Subhash Chandra Bose’s mouthpiece Agragami paper around 1939, this paper was published near Niranjani Akhara). Referring to his last meeting, Bhaduri Ji said “Sachindra da told me that soon Hindus will have to fight on two fronts — against British imperialism and also against Islamic Imperialism. Because of some personal reasons I have changed the name of some of the people in this post so they aren’t 100% accurate.

There was nothing surprising in this because, on both of these subjects, Sachindra Nath Sanyal used to write equally in his writings.

I touched Bhaduri’s feet and returned back.

By meeting Bhaduri Ji it became very clear that Sachindranath Sanyal was probably the only revolutionary who had foreseen the terrible problem that was to come. The reason for this was his philosophy which stood on the basis of reality, Sachindranath Sanyal was the voice of a common Indian, he didn’t explore India sitting in a car. Nor did he believe in Gandhi’s mere idealism and the world of imagination. Gandhi’s idealism became helpless in front of Jinnah’s Two Nation Theory. His idealism disintegrated like a straw in the face of the massacre of millions of Hindus and the demand for the new nation of Pakistan.

Sachindra Nath Sanyal had no prejudice towards Muslims, but he strongly opposed the Muslim leaders because he knew that the Muslims gave their preference to Muslim countries and not to India. He has mentioned this in his writings in many places. He strongly opposed a Muslim leader who said that Kabul government should attack India and establish an Islamic state. The Muslim leaders had a sense of indifference towards India, they considered the pride of Turkey as their pride. Even today there is a large number of Muslims in India who believe in the spirit of the Muslim Brotherhood instead of India and don’t even regard themselves as Indians. Even today some political parties can be seen supporting Muslim extremists in the lust and greed of votes. The fake idealism and the goody-goody ideas of the fancy cannot suppress the truth. It is necessary to teach the actual thoughts of Sachindra Nath in the textbooks of schools, colleges, and universities, this true son of Mother India should also get a proper place in history.

SACHINDRA NATH SANYAL A great, forgotten freedom fighter.

Many people sacrificed their lives in the struggle for the freedom of India. But there were some great personalities who not only sacrificed their lives but also inspired thousands and thousands of people to fight for freedom. One such great revolutionary was —— Sachindranath Sanyal.

Who was Sachindra Nath Sanyal? Congress and Marxists made a malafide attempt to keep this greatest revolutionary in oblivion after independence. Why the struggles of this greatest revolutionary could not find a place in the history books.

A Glimpse of Sachin Da’s Contribution in India’s Freedom Struggle.

Sachindra Nath Sanyal spent twenty one years in prison out of fifty years of his life.

Sachindra Nath Sanyal was the only revolutionary who was sentenced to life imprisonment twice.

Sachindra Nath Sanyal also had three younger brothers. Jitendra Nath Sanyal, Rabindra Nath Sanyal, Bhupendra Nath Sanyal. Brothers of Sachindra Nath Sanyal were also active in the armed freedom struggle, due to which all these brothers also had to go to prison many times. and spent years in jail in the freedom struggle.

The book “Bandi – jeevan”(A LIFE OF CAPTIVITY ) written by Sachindra Nath Sanyal is called the Bible of Indian revolutionaries, which was translated into more than twenty-eight languages and countless people who read this book chose the path of revolution for the independence of the country.

Sachindra nath Sanyal was the founder of “Hindustan Republican Association”

Sanyal was a close associate of the famous revolutionary Rash Bihari and Subhash Chandra Bose. Sachindra Nath Sanyal was the political teacher (GURU) of great revolutionaries like Chandrashekhar Azad, Bhagat Singh, Trilokya Chakraborty, Bhagwati Charan Vohra, Nalini Kishore Guh, Baba Prithvi Singh, Sukhdev, Rajguru, Lala Hardayal, Ajit Singh . Sachindra Nath Sanyal was popularly known as Sachin Da among revolutionaries.

This country and countrymen will always be indebted to Sachin Da. His entire family struggled for the freedom of the country, Hardly any other example can be found. Sachindranath Sanyal was not only a revolutionary, a great philosopher, writer, teacher and creator of the entire army of revolutionaries. There is no revolutionary who wasn’t influenced by Sachindra da. Sachindra Nath Sanyal was a great warrior who attempted to re-arm revolution in India after the revolt of 1857. Well, I personally like to evaluate any person on the basis of work, not on the basis of that person’s family, and personal relationships, but Sachindra Sanyal’s subject is something very different . Sachin da’s never giving up and striving nature was developed by his family. Apart from this, very little has been written on Sachindranath Sanyal, and that is why very few people know about him so I decided to write this post to make more and more people acquainted with Sachin Da.

Life introduction:-

Sachindranath Sanyal was born on 3rd June 1893 in his ancestral residence in Madanpura locality of Varanasi. His father Harinath Sanyal was a nationalist person. His mother Kshirodhavasini was an indomitable, courageous and pious woman. They raised their children in a nationalist environment. His father was an accountant in the army. He was transferred from place to place. Due to which the childhood of Shachindranath Sanyal was spent in cities like Kolkata, Banaras, Peshawar etc. Two childhood incidents which reveal Sachin da’s nature and determination.
When Sachin da’s father was posted in Shimla (the summer capital of those days) he once saved his younger brother Jitendra by risking his life. (he saved the life of his younger brother who had slipped and was about to fall from the hill of Shimla)
Once a young British horse rider had pushed his mother while riding a horse, on which Sachindra da beat up that defiant young man. His father died in 1908, due to which Sachin Da’s family shifted to their ancestral house in Banaras (Varanasi). For more information about this subject please visit :-

Encouraging Arjuna the war-bearer.

To understand Sachin Da, one has to understand that era. The era of the nineteenth century was the era of “renaissance of India and mainly of Bengal”. The national movement was getting social, political, economic and moral support from this Bengal renaissance. Poems of Michael Madhusudan Dutt, Ranglal Bandyopadhyay, with national sentiment And most importantly —– Bankim Chandra Chatterjee.
Bankim Chandra Chatterjee reinterpreted the Gita, the holy book of the Hindus. Durgeshnandini, Anand Math and Devi Chaudharani written by Bankimchandra also presented armed rebellion against injustice as an ideal. अहिंसा परमो धर्मः धर्म हिंसा यथैव च. Non Violence is the ultimate religion (Dharma) So too is violence in service of Dharma. Even killing a Brahman who has come to kill you is not a sin. Shri Krishna chanted the mantra of Shakti during Kurukshetra, encouraging Arjuna the war-bearer. After a long time, those mantras again filled the youth with hope. In his novel Anand Math, Bankim Chandra wrote the valor of the revolutionaries who challenged the British and made the Indians realize that freedom is their first right, which is the solemn duty of every Indian to achieve. The novel, based on the revolt of the monks of Bengal against British imperialism, had a song on the worship of the motherland. The title of this song was —- Vande Mataram. Later this title became the epitome of opposition to British imperialism. Its popularity can be understood from the fact that it was accepted for greetings throughout the country. The exploitation of British imperialism had created discontent throughout the country. The freedom struggle of 1857, the French Revolution, the Irish struggle, Japan’s victory in the Russia-Japanese War had strengthened the spirit of nationalism. Harinath Sanyal, influenced by the spirit of nationalism, admitted Sachindra and his younger brother to the Anushilan Samiti. Along with the exercise, the youth were also imparted the education of nationalism. Gradually such organizations were becoming popular among educated middle class youth in other parts of the country as well.

ANUSHILAN :-(To give serious thought to a subject).
It was founded by Satish Chandra Basu in 1902. It was also known as the first school of revolutionaries.
It is clear from seeing the symbol of Anushilan Samiti that this committee had a firm belief in the concept of motherland of Bankim Chandra Chatterjee. The only objective of this organization was to prepare the members of Anushilan Samiti for any sacrifice for the motherland. Here the map of united India, and in clear letters, “जननी जन्म-भूमिश्च स्वर्गादपि गरियसी” (MOTHER AND MOTHERLAND ARE SUPERIOR EVEN TO HEAVEN) can be seen. For more information about this subject please visit :-

After 1885, Ramesh Chandra Dutt, and Dadabhai Naoroji also started to attribute the poverty of India to British imperialism in the Congress sessions. In the famine of 1887-90, lakhs of people died in Bengal, the 1905 break-up(Bengal partition ) further ignited the flame of revolution. Swadeshi Swaraj, and boycott of foreign goods gained more momentum. Leaving the path of persuasion in the freedom movement, Tilak, Bipin Chandra Pal, Lala Lajpat Rai (Garam-Dal) came out. Lala Lajpat Rai was imprisoned in 1907, Tilak in 1908. There were many cases against Bipinchandrapal. The British government resorted to harsh repression. Press Act, Arms Act was enacted. The repression of the British government further fueled militant nationalism. National movements gained more momentum. The thoughts of Sachindra Nath Sanyal were formed in this background.


The ancestors of Sachindra Sanyal had settled in Benares (Varanasi)from Bengal. The ancestors of Sachindra da were a distinguished scholar. Impressed by his scholarship, Raja Chet Singh of Banaras had appointed him as a Pandit.

While working on Sachin da’s story, dusting off some old reading rooms and libraries in Banaras, I came to my attention to an article published in a years old magazine. In this short article written about Sachin Da
(barely ten lines) The author, Mrs. Monica Sanyal, who wrote this article, had written about the arrival of Sachin da’s ancestor to Benares and the appointment of a Pandit in the court of Raja Chet Singh. This was an extraordinary information for me. Because in this one line, the secret of nationalism of Sachin da’s family, and attachment to revolution was hidden.

During the time of Raja Chet Singh, a rebellion had failed in Banaras. What if this rebellion had been successful? Perhaps the country would have become independent on 15 August 1781 instead of 15 August 1947 (yes the dates are the same). Undoubtedly, the ancestors of Sachin da were closely associated with this rebellion due to the appointment of Pandit by Raja Chet Singh, and being a scholar, he must have been very well aware of the reasons for the failure of this rebellion. The upcoming generations were also affected by this. Naturally how Sachin da alone once again tried to make the country independent through armed revolution, created a revolutionary organization, united the revolutionaries across the country, The “failed revolution of Benaras” must have been behind this marathon effort. For more information about this subject please visit :-

The failure of the Banaras revolution, the first freedom struggle of 1857, the principle of Karma of Gita, the thoughts of Swami Vivekananda, Arvind Ghosh and many great revolutionaries of the world and their sacrifices can be seen in the philosophy of Sachin da. For more information about this subject please visit :-

“Any man who tells you that an act of armed resistance-even if offered by ten men only-even if offered by men armed with stones-any men who tell you that such an act of resistance is premature, imprudent, or dangerous, any and every such man should be at once spurned and spat at, for remark you this and recollect that somewhere and some how and by somebody a beginning must be made and that the first act of resistance is always and must be premature imprudent and dangerous”

This statement of an Irish revolutionary has been mentioned by Sachindra Nath Sanyal in his book Bandi Jeevan. This statement seems as if it has been written for Sachindra Nath Sanyal . Never give up, complete dedication and endless effort.


CHAOS IS NECESSARY TO THE BIRTH OF NEW STAR Sachindra Sanyal has also mentioned this sentence in his book.

Beginning of Revolutionary Life :- The revolutionary life of Sachindra Sanyal started from Varanasi. Sanyal established the branch of Anushilan Samiti in Varanasi. When Anushilan Samiti was banned, its name was changed to Young Man Association. There was also an internal committee of this organization. Young people used to sign with their blood in front of Mother Kali and become its members. The members of the association used to cut white pumpkins during Kali Puja. This white pumpkin was a symbol of British rule.
As the right hand of Rash Bihari Bose, Sachindra Nath Sanyal established many revolutionary centers. About eight thousand members of Hindustan-Ghadar Party, a well-known organization of revolutionaries, The passengers coming to India by ships were also taken in their crew immediately. Komagatamaru, Nishanmaru, Tosha Maru, SS Korea, etc. On the advice of Rash Bihari Bose, an attempt was made for a mass dedicated revolution like the revolution of 1857. Vishnu Ganesh Pingale, the leader of the Ghadar Party, met Rash Bihari Bose in Banaras(Varanasi). Sachindra Nath Sanyal came to Punjab for the purpose of revolution, after coming here he met Kartar Singh Sarabha, and other leaders of Ghadar Party. Sachindra Nath Sanyal also gave some revolvers and bullets to Kartar Singh Sarabha. After some time Rash Bihari Bose took over the leadership of Punjab. By going to Banaras, Punjab and many military cantonments of the country, the revolutionaries prepared soldiers. The soldiers of the Miyamari, Ferozepur Military Cantonments got ready for the revolution on February 19, 1915. Unfortunately, the secret of revolution was exposed and the revolutionaries were arrested.


KAALA PAANI:-(CELLCULAR JAIL) This prison remains in Port Blair, the capital of Andaman and Nicobar. Now it has been converted into a national monument. Cellular Jail– A prison surrounded by water on all sides, due to which no one could escape from here. It was the most infamous prison during the British period. Here the revolutionaries were kept and treated inhumanly.


Sachindra Nath Sanyal went to the military cantonment of Varanasi many times to prepare the soldiers for the revolution. Ten powerful bombs were also given to Vishnu-Ganesh Pingale by the revolutionaries of Varanasi. Pingle got arrested with bombs in Meerut military cantonment. The soldiers of the military cantonment of Varanasi refused to hand over their weapons. Many soldiers were court-martialed. Sachindra Nath Sanyal was arrested on 26 June 1915 in Varanasi. Sachindra Nath Sanyal was imprisoned in Lahore jail in handcuffs and shackles. Then brought back to Varanasi, trial was held in the special tribunal. Along with Sachindra Nath Sanyal, his two younger brothers Ravindra and Jeetendra, Damodar Swaroop of Kota were also trialed. Sachindra Nath Sanyal and Girija Babu were sentenced to life imprisonment. Jitendra Nath Sanyal, brother of Sachindra Nath Sanyal, was sentenced to two years. Sachindra Nath Sanyal was placed under house arrest in Gorakhpur. All the property of Sachindra Nath Sanyal was confiscated and mother of Sachindra Nath Sanyal was thrown out of the house.

This great revolutionary was sent to the Cellular Jail in Andaman. In the Cellular Jail, Sanyal was given the job of plowing like a bull in an oil mill with a blindfold on his eyes. For refusing this work, he was given a more severe punishment. After Britain’s victory in World War I, amnesty was given to political prisoners. Under this amnesty, Sachindra was released on February 1920. Immediately after his release he met many national leaders for the release of other prisoners. A few days later, Sachindra Nath Sanyal was also married to Pratibha Devi.

Contact with Gandhi :- On the initiative of Deshbandhu Chittaranjan Das, The revolutionaries assured Gandhiji that they would not take any revolutionary action for one year and would fully cooperate with Gandhiji. It happened, but when Mahatma Gandhi withdrew his first non-cooperation movement after the Chauri Chaura incident, the revolutionaries again took up arms. Sachindra Sanyal founded the famous revolutionary organization Hindustan Republican Association in 1922. Sachindra Sanyal made about twenty centers of this revolutionary organization in North India. He also wrote pamphlets under the name “request to the countrymen” and “Revolutionary”. The session of the Hindustan Republican Association was held in Kolkata in 1924. The documents prepared by Sachindra Sanyal about the continuation of both open and secret movements in the country. For more information about this subject please visit :-


Life Imprisonment For The Second Time

Soon Sachindra Sanyal was again imprisoned for giving impetuous speeches. This time he got a harsh punishment of two years. A few days after his release from jail, Sachindra Sanyal was associated with the KAKORI TRAIN ACTION (Kakori conspiracy case Years later, on 9th August 2021, the name of “Kakori Conspiracy” has been changed to “Kakori Train Action. )The revolutionaries looted the government treasury going by train at a place called Kakori near Lucknow. Revolutionaries associated with the Hindustan Republican Association were involved in this robbery.
The police arrested many people in connection with this case. Finally, the court sentenced Rajender Nath Lahiri, Thakur Roshan Singh, Ashfaq Ullah Khan, Ram Prasad Bismil to death in the Kakori case.
Sachindra Nath Sanyal, Sachindra Nath Bakshi, Yogesh Chandra Chatterjee, Mukund Lal, Govind Charan were imprisoned for life under Kala Pani (Sent to Port Blair Cellular Jail) Manmanath Gupta for 14 years. Many more people were jailed for many years. Sachin Da was released in 1937. He was arrested again in 1939 when the Second World War started. This time it was alleged that he was attempting an armed revolution in India with the help of Japan. A prisoner got tuberculosis in the jail, in those days people were very afraid of tuberculosis, as a result the prison staff refused to treat this prisoner. Sachindra Nath Sanyal himself took the responsibility of this prisoner, while serving this prisoner he himself became a victim of tuberculosis. This great revolutionary died of tuberculosis on 6th February 1943. The effort to make the impossible possible, the desire to sacrifice everything for the country is what makes this great soul different than others. The history of revolution and freedom struggle of India cannot be imagined without Sachindra Sanyal. There is no page in the history of India’s freedom struggle where Sachin da’s clear impression cannot be felt. As long as the freedom struggle of India will be remembered by the people, the sacrifice of Sachindra Nath Sanyal, the life of struggle will continue to inspire people.
