    contribution to the state's growth. He defied British rule and was an outspoken
    opponent of wage slavery and capitalism. He was an ardent participant in the
    liberation and freedom struggle. His life and energies were dedicated to the
    cause of independence. His goals were always centered on societal freedom from
    deprivation, poverty, and corruption.

    color:#222222">Bishnu Prasad Rabha was also a member of the Revolutionary
    Communist Party of India's (RCPI) armed revolutionary campaign. This kind of
    engagement was aimed at achieving independence from the British Empire and the
    wrath of the local lords. When he bestowed his ancestral property of roughly
    2500 bighas of land on the peasants, it was clear that he was a remarkable man.
    His financial situation deteriorated dramatically, and he was unable to afford
    therapy for his wife, Kanaklata, who died as a result of her sickness. However,
    this did not deter him from assisting his people and devoting his entire life
    to their growth.
