The Union Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER) recently commemorated the sacrifices of Tirot Sing, the legendary freedom fighter from Meghalaya who was hanged to death by the British rulers in early 19th century.
The function was part of a 15-day campaign undertaken by the Government of India to hold a series of programmes across the country to commemorate the sacrifices of the freedom fighters at their respective places of origin.
Tirot Sing, also known as U Tirot Sing, was one of the chiefs of the Khasi people in the early 18th century. In the attempt to prevent the Khasi Hills from falling into colonial hands, Tirot Sing had raised the battle cry against the invasive British forces on April 4, 1829, but was eventually captured and defeated. He died in captivity in Dhaka on July 17, 1835.
His death is commemorated in Meghalaya India as U Tirot Sing Day. This year it will be the 180th death anniversary of Tirot Sing.
