Shiv Dulare Mishra

Bahraich, Uttar Pradesh

April 02, 2024 to April 02, 2026

Rampurwa, a quaint village nestled in the Behraich district of Uttar Pradesh, rests at the foothills of Nepal. This village has nurtured numerous valiant individuals, many of whom ardently participated in India's struggle for independence. Among these courageous souls was Shiv Dulare Mishra, a prominent freedom fighter.

Born in Rampurwa to Late Shri Ram Ratan Mishra, he received his early education in his hometown. Driven by a fervent desire to serve his motherland, he resolved to join the freedom movement. With unwavering determination, he rallied the villagers, inspiring them to join the cause of liberation. His ideological influences stemmed from the teachings of Mahatma Gandhi and VinobaBhave.

In 1940, when the 'Individual Movement' gained momentum, he actively engaged in the struggle. However, his fervour for freedom led to his arrest and subsequent imprisonment in Gonda Jail for ten months, under strict confinement, in 1941. Additionally, he incurred a fine of 200 rupees for his revolutionary activities. His leadership during these trying times marked him as a stalwart figure from Behraich.

In recognition of his remarkable contributions to the freedom movement, Prime Minister Indira Gandhi bestowed upon him a Tamra Patra in 1972 on behalf of the nation. Despite his passing at his residence in Rampurwa, Behraich district, Uttar Pradesh.

Tamra Patra was awarded by the Government of India in 1972.
