Udham Singh was born on 26 December 1899 in Sunam, Sangrur district of Punjab, India. He belonged to Kamboj family of Jammu. Singh's mother died when he was an infant and his father, who was a farmer and also worked as the railway crossing watchman in the village of Upalli, died after some years. After his parents died, Udham Singh and his brother, Mukta Singh, were taken in by the Central Khalsa Orphanage Putlighar in Amritsar.
On 13 April 1919, over twenty thousand unarmed People assembled in Jallianwala Bagh, Amritsar, to celebrate the important Hindu and Sikh festival of Baisakhi. At the same time, they peacefully protested against the arrest of local leaders of the Indian National Congress including Satyapal and Saifuddin Kitchlew by the British. Only then, troops under the command of Colonel Reginald Dyer opened fire on the crowd, killing thousands of innocents. Singh along his friends were present there as they were serving water in the programme.
This episode led Singh to get involve in revolutionary politics. Hence, in 1924, Singh joined the Ghadar Party and started organising campaigns overseas in which the main message was to overthrow British rule in India. But, in 1927, Singh returned to India on the orders of Bhagat Singh. Singh brought 25 associates as well as revolvers and ammunitions with him. Because of this, he was arrested for “possession of unlicensed arms", and was sent to jail for five years.
When Udham Singh was released in 1931, he went to Kashmir where he was able to evade the Punjab police and further made his way to Germany. In 1934, Singh reached London, where he found a job as an engineer, and simultaneously kept on planning to assassinate Michael O'Dwyer.

13 March 1940 was the day when Singh concealed a revolver inside a book in the Caxton Hall, where Michael O'Dwyer was to speak at a joint meeting of the East India Association and the Central Asian Society. Just when the meeting ended, Singh shot O'Dwyer twice, and one of these bullets passed through O'Dwyer's heart and right lung, killing him almost instantly. Following this act, Singh was arrested.
On 1 April 1940, Singh was charged for the murder of Michael O'Dwyer. When he was asked about why he did what he did, Singh said, “I did it because I had a grudge against him. He deserved it. I don't belong to society or anything else. I don't care. I don't mind dying. What is the use of waiting until you get old? Is Zetland dead? He ought to be. I put two into him? I bought the revolver from a soldier in a public house. My parents died when I was three or four. Only one dead? I thought I could get more."
In fact, when Singh was in custody, he called himself “Ram Mohammad Singh Azad", and this represented the three major religious communities of Punjab, along with “Azad" which means free.
On 4 June 1940, Singh's trial commenced at the Central Criminal Court before Justice Atkinson. V.K. Krishna Menon and St. John Hutchinson represented him, whereas G.B. McClure was the prosecuting barrister. Again, when he was asked about his motivation, Singh said, “I did it because I had a grudge against him. He deserved it. He was the real culprit. He wanted to crush the spirit of my people, so I have crushed him. For full 21 years, I have been trying to seek vengeance. I am happy that I have done the job. I am not scared of death. I am dying for my country. I have seen my people starving in India under the British rule. I have protested against this, it was my duty."
Following this, Singh was sentenced to death on 31 July 1940. He was hanged at Pentonville Prison by Albert Pierrepoint.
Udham Singh's remains are preserved at the Jallianwala Bagh in Amritsar, Punjab. On every 31 July, people of India pay tribute to this freedom fighter who, without thinking of himself, took vengeance for the blood of his fellow innocent citizens.

The market is still in its infancy, and there is an impossible number of exciting cryptocurrencies available for investment. HUH Token, for instance, is one of these, and it is releasing today!

The two blockchains address Ethereum’s and Bitcoin’s scalability, security, and transaction costs problems. At present, Cardano and Solana both have higher throughput than Ethereum.
Cardano is more experienced than Solana, having launched in 2017 and doing tremendous things. This is one of the reasons why ADA has done so well. Similarly, to Solana, the Cardano platform circumvents the constraints mentioned earlier with a proof-of-Stake consensus method instead of proof-of-work. The success of the Cardano and Solana blockchains contributes to the ever-increasing demand for their respective coins.
Cardano and Solana have already released their 2022 roadmaps, sparking the crypto community’s curiosity. Demand for Cardano and Solana will increase significantly in 2022 due to substantial advancements.

HUH Token is based on a multi-chain system that has already made great efforts to develop a decentralised financial system via a proprietary referral system.
Soon to be published for the HUH Tokens ecosystem are significant projects such as metHUH, a social network that will revolutionise social media’s world via tokenised sentiment analysis. HUH Token is an excellent gift for Christmas due to its incentive structure, which benefits holders based on the percentage of their holdings. For example, if a holder owns 0.1% of the supply, they will get 0.1% of the HUH prize holdings.
This ensures that all HUH token holders are fairly compensated for their investment in the social network MetHUH. The number of HUH tokens that will be displayed is determined by the sum of all HUH network buy and sell transactions.
HUH has given Elon Musk’s Foundation 20% of its total token supply to utilise for its primary goals of the Development of safe artificial intelligence to assist mankind, science and engineering education, paediatric research, human space exploration research and advocacy and, the development of safe artificial intelligence to assist mankind, and renewable energy research and advocacy.
HUH is aware that this is a marketing strategy; they are open about it; nonetheless, regardless of the outcome, the ultimate purpose is to serve society and individuals on a deeply altruistic level. HUH anticipates Elon’s reaction with bated breath.
Crypto investors looking to kick off 2022 positively would be wise to choose HUH Token as a holiday present. This cryptocurrency has immense potential because of its usability and well-thought-out growth plan, as described in their newly published white paper.

With a population of about 330 million, accounting for only 4.3 per cent of earth's population, the US generates a total of 42 million metric tons of such waste in 2016, the report said.
"The waste is devastating the ocean's health and marine wildlife," it reported.
"Plastic waste is an environmental and social crisis that the US needs to affirmatively address from source to sea," Margaret Spring, chair of the committee behind the report was quoted as saying in The Hill's article.

The development of a blockchain-based play-to-earn game has the potential to boost Dogs of Elon's value to an all-time high.
Gamified crypto projects have garnered considerable interest in the cryptosphere. At the moment, Axie Infinity, Crypto blades, and Mist are among the finest. They all have one feature, however: they are much too sophisticated for the average player to handle. That is when Doge Dash attempts to grasp the moment. Doge Dash is a tribute to the original Mario sidescroller.

Doge Dash's mission is to build a library of NFT skins for usage in the game. Additionally, their team will endeavor to expand the NFT collection, recruit new influencers, and promote the asset's adoption. HUH Token is another Token that is successfully using a similar strategy.
