India 1943 Freedom Struggle Pow Prisoner Of War Censors On Letter For Sale

India 1943 Freedom Struggle Pow Prisoner Of War Censors On Letter


Inter-prison mail from Security Prisoner Bina Das in Presidency Jail, Calcutta to a Security Prisoner in Barisal Jail with censor marks of both prisons with a portion of the text cut out by the censor. This is Prisoner of War mail relating to the Indian War of Independence / Independence Struggle. The prisoners detained for 'attempted Independence' were lodged in separate sections in regular prisons & were euphemistically identified as 'Security Prisoners'. Their mail was (sometimes?) censored. Bina Das was detained for her active participation in the Quit India movement. She had also been previously been detained & sentenced for the attempted assassination of a Governor. Censored mail of independence activist prisoners is exceedingly rare. Partial transcipt/translation:

From Bina Das

Presidency Jail

Nirmala Ghosh

Dear Nirmala,

** PAPER CUT OUT BY CENSOR** I think, though now onwards we shall be kept distributed in various jails, we have the advantage of communicating mutually through letters. During our confined life this a boon. Through this window we can come close and exchange views. Last time we didn’t have this privilege.

Though we have earned this right to write letters, there are so many restrictions. It’s truly difficult to write without getting censored."Themes: Gandhi / War of Independence / Quit India Movement / Prisoner of War Mail.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Bina Das (Bengali: বীণা দাস) (1911–1986) was an Indian revolutionary and nationalist from Bengal.

She was the daughter of the well knownd Brahmo teacher, Beni Madhab Das and a social worker Sarala Devi.

Bina Das was a member of Chhatri Sangha, a semi-revolutionary outfit for women in Kolkata. On 6 February 1932, she attempted to assassinate the Bengal Governor Stanley Jackson, a former England cricket captain, in the Convocation hall of the University of Calcutta. She fired five shots but failed and was sent to nine years of rigorous imprisonment.

After her early release in 1939, Das joined the Congress party. In 1942, she participated in the Quit India movement and was imprisoned again from 1942-45. From 1946-47, she was the member of the Bengal Provincial Legislative Assembly and later from 1947-51. she was a member of the West Bengal Legislative Assembly. In 1947, she married Jatish Chandra Bhaumik, an Indian independence movement activist belonging to the Jugantar group. After the death of her husband, she led a lonely life in Rishikesh and died in anonymity.
