Born in 1892, Baba Harjap Singh joined the Gadhar Party in the prime of his youth while he was in the USA. In 1925, as decided by the party, he left for India to join the freedom struggle, but was refused the passport. He walked some 3000 miles to reach India through Europe and Russia, was detained a numerous times along the way until he reached India in 1930. Here, the British Government took him as a security prisoner till 1947. In recognition of his outstanding contribution to the freedom struggle, Pandit Nehru met him during his house arrest in Mahilpur in 1936. While under house arrest, people of the area honored him by electing him MLA to the Lahore Legislative Assembly. Glorious was his journey and so was his devotion. His dream “India has not yet achieved what I dreamt of, a free India with equality, secularism and a better life for everyone” still serves as a beacon for unrelenting & unflinching toil for a better and prosperous nation.
