09 AUGUST Trailokyanath Chakravarty (1889 to 1970)
Trailokyanath Chakravarty was born in 1889 in Mymensingh district (present-day Bangladesh). Also known as Maharaj from his early boyhood days, he was associated with anti-British political activities. In 1906, he joined the anushilan samiti (an organisation that propagated anti-British activities). He was arrested by the British in 1908 and hence could not complete his schooling. In 1912, he was arrested again but released due to a lack of evidence against him. Trailokyanath continued to work in underground organisations in Rajshahi, Comilla, and Maldah, and in 1913 he was imprisoned in the Cellular Jail in Andamans for his involvement in the Barisal Conspiracy Case. He spent close to 30 years in jail for his anti-British revolutionary activities. He passed away on 09 August 1970.
