First Read of 2017: Biography of Bhagat Singh by M.M. Juneja

My last read of 2016 was the Complete Tribunal Proceedings of the Lahore Conspiracy Case that had revolutionary Sukhdev's remarks in the margins. I am glad that the first book that I read in 2017 is about Sukhdev's closest friend: Bhagat Singh.

M.M. Juneja's biography of India's most famous martyr doesn't add much to all that has been written about Bhagat Singh down the ages but has one or two interesting chapters like Bhagat's love for books (he was never without one) or the reminiscences by his compatriots who remembered him as a fun-loving youngster.
