Ramjanm Ahir

Kaimur (Bhabua), Bihar

July 10, 2024 to July 10, 2026

Ramjanm Ahir, born in 1912 in Sakri village, Kaimur district, sacrificed his life for India's freedom at just 30. His father, Shivnandan Ahir, was a sharecropper who supported the family through farming. Ramjanm received primary education at the middle school in Kudra, but financial difficulties forced him to leave his studies and work as a laborer.

From a young age, Ramjanm exhibited enthusiasm and courage, harboring a deep sense of rebellion against British rule. He openly opposed British supporters and, when Mahatma Gandhi launched the Quit India Movement, he committed himself fully to expelling the British.

On 13 August 1942, as a contingent of British soldiers passed near Sakri village, Ramjanm boldly confronted them. He was ly arrested and brought before an English officer. Ramjanm defiantly warned the captain to leave India. Infuriated, the captain ordered his execution on the spot. Ramjanm Ahir was martyred near his village, leaving behind a legacy of bravery and sacrifice in the fight for India's independence.

The name mentioned in the inscription of freedom fighter at Kudra Block.
