The book contains everything from letters to telegrams and notices written by Bhagat, articles that chalk out his revolutionary ideas, and his mails from jail to the colonial administration and judiciary. His forty-three sketches of Indian revolutionaries throw light on the larger picture of the Indian struggle for independence. Through his writing, we see Bhagat Singh the man and the thinker.
