The great freedom fighter Subhash Chandra Bose was an unsung hero for the nation during the independence of India, and he is one of the greatest leaders who saw the dream of free India and set free from the rule of the Britishers. Whenever I hear the name of Subhash Chandra Bose, I remember his famous sayings, “Tum Mujhe Khoon Do, Main Tumhe Azadi Dunga.” He was also known by the name Netaji, called Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose.
He was a great freedom fighter, patriot, and a great Militant of the Indian army who was born in the state of Orissa, Cuttack place on 23rd of January, 1897. His father’s name was Janakinath Bose, and his mother, Prabhavati Devi Bose. His father was a well-known lawyer. Netaji Bose was a talented, brilliant student and good learner that achieved the second position in the Matriculation Exam. He started Influencing Swami Vivekanand and Ramakrishna Ji by reading his books from childhood. He did his graduation BA in Philosophy in Cuttack and then went to England for further studies. He got selected for the Indian Civil services in England, but he refused that proposal because he didn’t want to stay in England and wanted to return to his nation. He then joined the Indian National Congress Party and the Non-cooperation movement started by Gandhiji. Later, he founded the Azad Hind Army in India, which is then called the Indian National Army. Britishers imprisoned him many times for his revolutionary movements and sent to the Mandalay Jail in Burma. He was caught with Tuberculosis there in jail.
Netaji was selected as the president of the Indian National Congress party, and then he worked with great leaders like Jawaharlal Nehru and Gandhiji, but his thoughts were not matched with other leaders, including Gandhiji. He was highlighted in the Civil Disobedience Movement and arrested by the British army. He was again selected as the president of the Indian National Congress party, but he then resigned from his post because his ideology never matches with the internal and foreign policies of the party. He then left the party and started communicating and getting support from the other countries. Japan agreed to help him and worked with the Indian National Army, and then they started acquiring northern portions of India from British armies. Later, he called off the war because Japanese armies surrendered to help. It is said and believed that Netaji was caught in the plane crash and died on the 18th of August, 1945. He was still an unforgettable national hero, a great leader, and a great freedom fighter of the Indian Country. He is called and known as ‘‘the Iron Man’’ of India because of his bravery and his strong demeanor.
