Ram Bharose Mishra

Bahraich, Uttar Pradesh

April 02, 2024 to April 02, 2026

Rampurwa is a quaint village nestled in the Behraich district of Uttar Pradesh. This village, brimming with valour, has nurtured numerous courageous individuals who actively participated in India's struggle for independence. Among these illustrious sons of the soil was the revered freedom fighter, Ram Bharose Mishra.

Born in Rampurwa to Medhi Lal, Ram Bharose Mishra received his early education in his native land. He tied the knot with Smt. Ram Pyari Devi was blessed with a son. Driven by an unwavering determination to serve his motherland, Ram Bharose Mishra rallied the villagers, urging them to join the freedom movement. His ideologies were deeply rooted in the principles espoused by Mahatma Gandhi and Vinoba Bhave.

In 1940, when the 'Individual Movement' gained momentum, he threw himself into the fray with fervour. However, his activism led to his arrest and subsequent six-month imprisonment with stringent confinement in Gonda Jail in 1941. Additionally, he was fined 200 rupees for his revolutionary endeavours. Ram Bharose Mishra emerged as a prominent leader from the heart of Behraich.

In recognition of his significant and graceful contributions to the freedom struggle, Prime Minister Indira Gandhi bestowed upon him Tamra Patra in 1972 on behalf of the nation.

Ram Bharose Mishra passed away on 20 April 1980.
