Personalities of Uttarakhand

Veer Chandra Singh Garhwali (The Hero of Peshawar Revolt)

Chandra Singh Garhwali was a soldier in the British army and a hero of the Indian freedom struggle. He was born in Meason, Patti Chauthan, Tehsil Thalisain District Garhwal. Chandra Singh’s father’s name was Jalouth Singh Bhandari. And he was an illiterate farmer. That is why he could not educate Chandra Singh too, but Chandra Singh had learned to read and write by his own hard work. His real teacher was the rich experience that he gathered in his wide and varied travels during his service in the army and the long terms of imprisonment which he faced with care, courage and fortitude in his fight for the freedom of the country.
