Updated: Jan 26, 2023

With the Neta ji's 28 feet tall black granite statue now standing tall under the canopy behind India Gate in Delhi it symbolises the courage and valour of this great freedom fighter, soldier, leader and honest politician. His idea of India was different so his actions were different too, he resigned from congress and fled India under the nose of British to stand and lead a tall army of Indian war of prisoners captured in jails for fighting in World War by the side of British.

Such courage and leadership to meet hitler and ask for help to throw British out of India and then going to Japan via the sea route to attack British India through the Myanmar taking help from the Japanese. This move itself shows the greatness and vision and hot blood of Subhash ji.

He was popularly known as Netaji and the title ‘Netaji’ was conferred to him by German and Indian officials at the Special Bureau of India in Berlin.

“One individual may die for an idea, but that idea will, after his death, incarnate itself in a thousand lives.” — Subhas Chandra Bose

He was born on 23 January 1897 in Cuttack, Orrisa, now known as Odisha. While growing up he became a follower of Swami Vivekananda, and espoused strong socialist values.

Also, he was imprisoned in December 1921 for his activities and In 1924 he was appointed chief executive officer of the Calcutta Municipal Corporation, with Das as mayor. But Netaji was deported to Burma (Myanmar) because he was suspected of connections with secret revolutionary movements. Later when he was released in 1927, he returned and was elected president of the Bengal Congress. Shortly thereafter he and Jawaharlal Nehru became the two general secretaries of the Indian National Congress.

“Men, money, and materials cannot by themselves bring victory or freedom. We must have the motive-power that will inspire us to brave deeds and heroic exploits.” — Subhas Chandra Bose

He led the Indian National Army or Azad Hind Fauj in 1943 to free India from British rule. His courage and ideas inspired millions still today.

On 21 October 1943, the Provisional Government of Free India was established as a government-in-exile in Singapore by Indians in exile headed by Subhash Chandra Bose.

It is officially believed that on 18 August 1945, he reportedly died at a hospital in Taiwan as a result of injuries from a plane crash. However , he lives and lives forever in our hearts no matter what the reality is behind his death mystery.

“It is blood alone that can pay the price of freedom. Give me blood and I will give you freedom!” — Subhas Chandra Bose
