Tarakeshwar dutta, then president of Chittagong branch of Jugantar Party, made a prepaation to rescue Surya Senfrom the Jail which was not successful. Surya Sen along with his comrade Tarakeshwar Dastidar was hanged by the British rulers on January 12,1934.Before his death he was brutally tortured.
It is worth recalling , in this context, what Surya Sen said in his last message before his hanging at midnight;
"This is the task for preparation , to embrace death as a friend and this is the time to recall the light of other days as well. At such a solemn moment, what shall I leave behind for you? Only one thing,that is my dream the golden dream-the dream of a free mother land."
His last letter to his comrades, written on 11 Jan, will remain enshrined in history as the most eloquent testimony of the excellence of his manhood. " Death is knocking at my door.My mind is flying away towards infinity .... this is the moment to myself to embrace death as the dearest of friends. In this happy, sacred and crucial moment, what I am leaving for you ? Only one thing my dream, golden dream, the dream of a Free india."
