Since 1999

After the Chinese invaded India and defeated India soundly in 1962, because of the stupidly of our then-leaders, NCC (National Cadet Corps) became compulsory for High school and college students. I was involved in it for 4-5 years.

One Sunday I and my friends were returning from the parade that was held in grounds just beyond the Govt College, Ludhiana, we saw police presence near the main gate. It must have been early or mid-1965. We saw lots activity on the roof of the Chemistry building and soon realized that a film was being shot. We were able to watch the whole thing from the boundary wall. From a distance we saw two people running and some others chasing them. They were doing it again and again.

It turned out that it was Bhagat Singh and Rajguru, who, after having shot John Saunders had taken shelter in a college in Lahore and my alma mater, Govt College, Ludhiana was playing the role of that Lahore college!

Watch this clip where they are seen on the roof being chased.
