Jawala Singh ( Baba)
He was born in village Thatian, District Amritsar, sometime during the sixties of the nineteenth cenhuy, His father was a small land-owner and the family eked out their living with great difficulty. Like many other daT°ng Punjabi peasants of those days, Jawala Singh proceeded abroad in search of better ocooomic prospects. He left India in 1905 and went to California via Chivy Panama and Mexico. Reaching there he purchased a Piece of land and started farming in collaboration with Baba Wasakha Sam. After he had been in California for a few years be realized together with some other Sikh settlers the urgent need of having a cultural centre where they could moat occasionally and discuss matters of common interest. For this purpose a guadwara was built in Stockton. which subsequently became a centre of revolutionary activities.
The freedom and liberty that people enjoyed in America created a deep impression upon his young mind and with a view to making his own countrymen imbibe that spirit, he invited four students from India to study there and all their expenses were net by hum His patriotic spirit canted him great popularity and he was elected President of the California Branch of the Indian Association, the fast organization that had been set up by the Indian settlers over there to guard their mteredts.'Ihe inhuman and discriminatory treatment meted out to them by the natives and the unsympathetic attitude adopted by the British Indian Government in the matter created a powerful feeling in the minds of Jawala Singh and his friends that the root cause of all their troubles and hardships. was their political subjection. Once this feeling was born, the timely outbreak of the First World War created the necessary opportunities to strike a blow for the attainment of their objective. Taking advantage of the favourable turn in the situation. Dabs Jawala Singh, Baba Wasakha Singh, Baba Sohan Singh tmakns and Lala Hardyal toured the Pacific Coast impressing upon their people the urgent need of a powerful political organ to bring about a revolution in India. The new organ that thus came into being was the famous Ghadr Party with the Gha& paper as its vehicle of political propaganda.
The main aim of the party being to organize at armed rebellion in India, several batches of revolutionaries were sent to India. Baba Jawala Singh was one of the principal leaders of the first big batch which left San Francisco for India on August 29, 1914 by the ship called Korea. From Hong Kong a new ship Tosha Mans was hired for the onward journey to India. At Singapore Jawala Singh and sonic other leaders tried to win over the loyalty of Indian regiments and to incite them for a national revolt against the British, but not much success was achieved.
As soon as they landed at Calcutta, most of them were arrested including Baba Jawala Singh and all their plans were frustrated. In 1915 the Baba was tried in the First Lahore Conspiracy Case and was sentenced to life imprisonment Ile remained in Jail for 18 years and was released in 1933. When he was serving his term in the Andaman islands, he went on hunger-strike against the in human treatment of prisoners by the authorities.
After 1933 he identified himself with the cause of peasants and workers and worked for the Punjabi paper Kirti which voiced their grievances. For his new activities he was rearrested in 1935 and sentenced to one year's imprisonment. But this did not affect his veal and he continued his work as usual When he was on his way to Bengal to attend a session of the All-India Kisan Conference, he met an mysterious accident on the way and died in 1938. His whole life was a life of dedicatton to the national cause

spon of time Savarkar, Kanihya dal, Barindra, Bhupendra. Khudlri Ram Bose and Haim Chandra Vas were captured and sentenced to death. This infuriated the young revolutionaries in England who decided to penahr-e the harshness of the Government by assassinating Sir William Cr-,on Wyllie, Political Aide-de-Camp at the India House. Although Wyllie was a good friend of Madan Lal's father. but this did not deter Madan lam from his firm resolve to shoot him and for this purpose he leant the use of revolver shooting Incidently. he got his long-awaited chance on July I, 1909 when there was a meeting at the imperial Institute, London where Sir W.C.

The political Aidede-Camp died on the spot. Madan 1st threw away the revolver and made no attempt to escape. lie was surrounded by the crowd and captured. When his hands were being tied, he laughed in derision and said. 'Please let me correct my specs".
The news created a great sensation in the whole of India and E-igland. Madan Lal's act was coitdensned by his rather and other relatives but was eulogized by nationalists and revolutionaries. He was triad by a British soon and sentenced to death.
