Shaheed Udham Singh Freedom Fighter (History) :-
He was born as Sher Singh on December 26, 1899 at Sunam , Sangrur, Punjab. His father, Tahal Singh, was a watchman on a railway crossing in the neighboring village of Upall. He lost his parents before he was seven years old.

Sunam is the birth place of the famous patriot, Shahid Udham Singh who took the revenge of massacre of innocent Indians by the British on April 13 in 1919 in JALLIAN WALA BAGH in Amritsar by shooting Sir Michael O'Dwyer in Caxton Hall in London on 13 March, 1940 as he was the one who had ordered the shooting of a large and peaceful meeting of the patriots in the Bagh by using machine guns and killed hundreds of them as the garden had just one narrow lane to enter and it was surrounded by walls with no exit gates elsewhere. The machine guns were placed in the only escape lane which was actually both, the way in and out and many in the gathering there jumped into the famous well in the garden to save their lives and drowned. Thousands of people pay their homage to the killed patriots daily by bowing to this garden, the well and by remembering Shahid Udham Singh of Sunam. Udham Singh was hanged on death by British authorities on 31 July 1940 on which date every year a State Level Shaheedi Mela is held at Sunam with great enthusiasm to pay homage to the great Indian martyr. In the memory of Shaheed Udham Singh, his statue has been installed in the town. A stadium has also been built in the memory of the martyr.
