Selected biography

Birsa Munda, photograph in Roy (1912-72).JPG

Birsa Munda (1875 – June 9, 1900) was a Munda leader in the late 19th century political independence movement during the British Raj in India.

Birsa Munda is named with great respect as one of the freedom fighters in the Indian struggle for independence against British colonism. His achievements in the freedom struggle become even greater considering he accomplished this before his 25th year. Birsa's devotion to his people was such that he was alomost revered as God by his followers. By the time he was in his 20s, his activities in the tribal areas of Jharkhand state (earlier Bihar) had already begun to worry the British establishment to a considerable extent. He was finally caught by the British on 3 February 1900 when only 25 years of age. He died soon afterwards in mysterious circumstances on 9 June 1900 in Ranchi Jail.
