Udham Singh, who witnesses an unspeakable horror and does his greatest to save lots of the wounded is a scene that made the viewer’s heart-wrenching.
Udham and Bhagat Singh’s camaraderie
One of the greatest allies of Sardar Udham Singh was Shaheed Bhagat Singh. Udham Singh met Bhagat Singh in a jail. Udham addressed Bhagat as his ‘guru’. The impact and influence of Bhagat Singh had on Udham was both powerful and everlasting. He was influenced by Bhagat’s atheism. He started following the steps of Bhagat Singh and fought with the same zeal and passion as him for the country’s freedom.
Wearing many hats and practicing different professions
Udham Singh had the capability to disguise and adapt different identities to travel across the world to finally cross that one gate of Caxton Hall and avenge the death of countless innocent Indian souls. He was a perfectionist when it came to nailing different personalities. One of the reasons that he could ace it every time might have come from his experience as an actor. He worked as an extra on the sets of Elephant Boy (1937). He was a multi-talented person who adapted various skills over time from being a signboard painter, carpenter, welder in a factory, a lingerie salesman to a voyager on a shipping vessel.
The wait was over
On March 13, 1940, Sardar Udham Singh shot Micheal O’Dwyer at a meeting at East India Association and The Royal Central Asian Society at Caxton Hill. Taking out the revolver from his diary, he shot at General Dwyer. He did this in front of the world because he wanted to send a message, he wanted this to be an event that reminded people of the revolution, and that the world should never forget India’s greatest tragedy. He was calm and stood there waiting patiently when he was arrested by the police. He was imprisoned in the Brixton prison.
A symbol for unity
During his imprisonment he held a 36-day hunger strike to symbolise the power and the need of religious unity in India to fight the Britishers. His fasting was a powerful message and an urge to the three major religions of India (Hindu, Muslims and Sikhs) to become one and fight for the freedom of their motherland. He identified himself as ‘Ram Mohammad Singh Azad’ while in custody, showcasing his belief in unity, negating the anti-colonial sentiments.
