Frank Brazil pays tribute to Indian revolutionary Udham Singh - Udham Singh’s execution at London’s Pentonville Prison. It follows the 21 years of Udham Singh's life following the Jallianwallah Bagh (Amritsar) massacre in 1919, leading up to the assassination of Michael O'Dwyer and his execution in Pentonville Prison shortly after.
Udham Singh (26 December 1899 – 31 July 1940) was an Indian revolutionary best known for assassinating Sir Michael O'Dwyer, the former Lieutenant Governor of the Punjab in British India, on 13 March 1940.
The assassination has been described as an avenging of the Jallianwala Bagh massacre in Amritsar in 1919. Singh is a prominent figure of the Indian independence struggle. He is sometimes referred to as Shaheed-i-Azam Sardar Udham Singh (the expression "Shaheed-i-Azam," means "the great martyr").
A district (Udham Singh Nagar) of Uttarakhand was named after him in October 1995 by Mayawati government.
