On the Janma Divas of Brave #SuhasiniGanguly, I write a brief tribute for the woman who was a rare figure in male dominated bastion of revolutionaries.
Born on this day Feb 03 1909 at Bengal, she passed matriculation and joined as a teacher at Kolkata where she got acquainted with #JugantarParty and by 1929, British came to know about her activities.
She shifted her base to Chandannagar as it was French ruled, the Chittagong Armory Raid was one of the biggest attacks on British & Suhasini with Shashidhar Acharya disguised themselves as Married Couple & gave shelters for those freedom fighters at her place. On September 01, 1930 British raided her house & in the melee Jiban Ghoshal got killed, Suhasini for the first time got arrested. Again in 1932, Suhasini was caught with another brave lady BinaDas.
who attempted to kill Bengal Governor Stanley & British jailed her for 6 years from 1932 to 38.
Coming out she joined Communist party, during Quit India Movement, since Communists weren’t participating, she gave shelter for freedom fighter HemantaTarafdar of Congress.
The British jailed her again for 3rd time for 3 more years.
Now, this becomes unpardonable, Post Independence, Nehru govt arrested Suhasini for being a Communist. If the British arrested her thrice Nehru arrested her several times between 1948-49.
Gradually Suhasini distanced herself from Communists as Communists became more Anti Bharat.
She started leading a modest life, in 1965, she met with a road accident and because of negligence & apathy by govt, Suhasini Passed Away on 23rd March 1965.
