A Hero called Bhagat Singh

Sometimes, in our obsession with pretty ordinary mortals, we tend to forget legendary martyrs. I was reminded of this day by an e-mail with a link. It really is sad that this is all that we could do in remembrance of Bhagat Singh. Don't we pay too much attention to the contradictary statements of a confused old man and to the stunts of a hyped up woman, who has desperately tried to make a selfless sacrifice of a dire situation that could have turned out to be really messy, not just for herself but for the party as a whole?
Yahoo News has something to say about Bhagat Singh and what he means to what India today is. By the way, what is March 23 called?
