Harohalli Srinivasaiah Doreswamy has seen a lot in his life, he has seen the country changing in front of his eyes.
He has seen India under the British rule and he has seen it getting the freedom, after years of resistence.
So, it was a monumental moment when he became a part of a protest in wake of a recent attack on JNU students and the implementation of CAA.
101-year-old freedom fighter joined people in Bengaluru for a recent Satyagraha hunger strike.
Great scenes here at the Freedom Park Bengaluru. HS Doreswamy a 101 year old freedom fighter just broke the fast at Satyagraha with others. From “Bharath chodo” to “Bharath jodo” this man has come a very long way. #BangaloreProtest #IndiaAgainstCAA @prajectory @pepper_smoker

Harohalli Srinivasaiah Doreswamy has had a long history of protesting against injustice. He, along with his brother, planned to make time bombs with the aim of destroying government documents during the pre-independence era.
Age is Just a Number. 102-year-old freedom fighter Harohalli Srinivasaiah Doreswamy is an Indian activist and journalist. He was involved in making Time Bombs, which were used to damage British govt documents during Quit India Moment.
Upon being jailed, he followed Mahatma Gandhi’s footsteps and opted for Ahimsa and Satyagraha (non-violence and fighting with peace).
Later in 1947, he took part in the Mysore Chalo Movement, by publishing articles in his newspaper.
The fire of resistance still burns strong for a 101 year old freedom fighter.
The idea of India can never be taken from true Indian’s.
Salutes to you sir, Power to you. Power to each and every Indian fighting for India.
