Our freedom struggle talks revolve around key protagonists like Mahatma Gandhi, Sardar Patel, Lala Lajpat Rai among others. We, however, forget foot soldiers who had also contributed to the Indian Independence. One such hero is Babu Genu Said, a cotton mill worker from Mumbai and labour unionist. He actively participated and organised protests against the import of foreign-made cloth. Shahid Babu Genu Said died on December 12, 1930 when he was 22-years-old.
