Ram Prasad Bismil: Indian freedom fighter who rebelled with his words and deeds


By NewsGram Staff Writer

“फिर ना गुलशन में हमें लायेगा शैयाद कभी

याद आयेगा किसे ये दिल-ऐ-नाशाद कभी

क्यों सुनेगा तु हमारी कोई फरियाद कभी

हम भी इस बाग में थे कैद से आजाद कभी

अब तो काहे को मिलेगी ये हवा खाने को”

Shahjahanpur’s Ram Prasad was just 30 years old when he was hanged in Gorakhpur jail on 19th

December 1927. He was one of the many youths, most of them forgotten in the shuffle of time, who

dedicated their life to the freedom of their nation.


He was fluent in both Hindi and Urdu and had a flair for writing patriotic poetry. Using the pseudonym

“Bismil” Ram Prasad composed many verses which have gone down in history as masterpieces of a

generation both oppressed and exploited. His verses are in no way any less than the revolutionary work

he did for Hindustan Republican Association or as the member of the “Garam Dal” of Indian nationalist

Here are a few pieces of Bismil, which throw some light on the unimaginable drive of the freedom

fighter to selflessly give his life to the country.

“Last Verse Of Bismil”

What’s the use of hats off, when a person has died,

What’s the use of a message which comes after the tide.

O Heart! go away from here and destroy thy notion,

What’s the use of it if thou did after motion.

Alas! had we seen our goal alive,

What’s the use of it, if achieved after our life.

Worth seen were the last moments of ‘Bismil’,

What’s the use if people saw it after the thrill.


“सरफरोशी की तमन्ना अब हमारे दिल में है”

सरफरोशी की तमन्ना अब हमारे दिल में है

सरफरोशी की तमन्ना अब हमारे दिल में है,

देखना है जोर कितना बाजुए कातिल में है ।

करता नहीं क्यों दुसरा कुछ बातचीत,

देखता हूँ मैं जिसे वो चुप तेरी महफिल मैं है ।

रहबर राहे मौहब्बत रह न जाना राह में

लज्जत-ऐ-सेहरा नवर्दी दूरिये-मंजिल में है ।

यों खड़ा मौकतल में कातिल कह रहा है बार-बार

क्या तमन्ना-ए-शहादत भी किसी के दिल में है ।

ऐ शहीदे-मुल्को-मिल्लत मैं तेरे ऊपर निसार

अब तेरी हिम्मत का चर्चा ग़ैर की महफिल में है ।

वक्त आने दे बता देंगे तुझे ऐ आसमां,

हम अभी से क्या बतायें क्या हमारे दिल में है ।

खींच कर लाई है सब को कत्ल होने की उम्मींद,

आशिकों का जमघट आज कूंचे-ऐ-कातिल में है ।

सरफरोशी की तमन्ना अब हमारे दिल में है,

देखना है जोर कितना बाजुए कातिल में है ।


“Secret Of Life”

Ours is the talk in the field of foe,

See! which stage has reached this show.

O Countrymen! you learn to sacrifice,

The secret of life is to cut across flow.

Take it to shore very soon O Sailor!

The boat of our country is out of the row.

How be remove the dark of distress,

This is now only our worry and woe.

Hang me up for the sake of freedom,

Rest is the will of a ‘Bismil’s woe.
