When pleas and petitions bring little results, revolutionaries emerge – they cannot be characterized into any particular sect, caste or religion. They are but united by a single motive – to bring about a change in the current system be it political, religious or economic. India, the land with the richness of culture, heritage and legacy, underwent a tumultuous period in history when countries like France, Portuguese and British (primarily) took over the reign to limit the country and its countrymen as a mere puppets. From being the Golden Bird to an exploited land, the country became vulnerable to the attacks by the British government who firmed their control strategically. Decades of being under the British rule finally gave way to Indian revolutionaries who through their movements and propaganda led to the complete collapse of the English empire. While the country has had numerous revolutionaries, world-renowned Mahatma Gandhi, was a trailblazer of the independence struggle. He spearheaded the country to independence through his non-violence and non-cooperative movement. Other prominent national revolutionaries include Bal Gangadhar Tilak, Bhagat Singh, Kalpana Singh, Khudiram Bose, Rani Lakshmi Bai, Chadrashekhar Azad and so on.
