The most potent thoughts that influence the living are thoughts of immortal heroes like Lala Lajpat Rai.

Perhaps, at times, one needs to explain to the younger generation as to what the expression"Lal
- Bal - Pal” represent.

Those of us who had the privilege to live and see the struggle during the last quarter of the nine-
teenth and the first quarter of twentieth century know the role of this trinity of Lala Lajpat Rai, Bal Gangadhar Tilak and Bipin Chandra Pal in the freedom movement and the reforms they introduced during this period.

Lala Lajpat Rai, Bal Gangadhar Tilak and Bipin Chandra Pal, we must say were lenders not merely of their respective provinces, but indeed of the whole of India. There was the common cause of freeing India from the foreign rule.

Lalaji was a great patriot, who sacrificed all his fortune for the sake of freeing India from the foreign yoke. Nothing was dearer to him than the freedom of mother – land.

However his patriotism was not a narrow creed. He loved his country because he loved humanity. He was a nationalist of outstanding personal character, of a singularly self –sacrificing disposition, and fearless in expression of his views.

On more than one occasion he was imprisoned without trial and in 1907 deported to Mandalay without provocation of any kind. From 1913 to 1920 he was forced to live in exile in America for demanding Swaraj. But all of these ordeals and sufferings did not deter him to leave the cause of freedom unachieved. At last, he even laid down his life bravely for the sake of freeing India. Such was burning patriotism of Lalaji.
