On 23rd January 1897, Subhash Chandra Bose was born in Cuttack, to Prabhavati Devi and Janakinath Bose, a well-renowned advocate of his time. Even as a child, Subhash Chandra Bose showed profound qualities of leadership. After innumerable efforts pursued by the freedom fighters, he realised that violence was the only option to fight against the British rule.

He opted for politics in order to start his fight against the East India Company. His political career started when he joined the Congress movement. In 1939, he was also elected as the President of Congress, but his tenure with the Congress did not last long because of his differences with Mahatma Gandhi’s policy of non-violence. His separation from the Congress made him more aggressive towards the freedom struggle. So, he decided to start his own army struggle from Germany.

His army comprised recruits from the Indian prisoners of war and Indian residents of Germany and Japan. When Germany and Japan lost in World War II, Netaji’s army had also failed in seeking India’s freedom.

“Give me blood, and I shall give you freedom!” was his famous quote. He used it to urge people to join him in his fight against British Raj. He was a great leader and father of all his soldiers, some of whom considered him their demigod. Although he is not around us, his grand personality and fearless attitude continue to inspire the youth of our country. Even today, the people of our country, especially those in the armed forces, discuss Netaji’s great ideas and views keeping him alive forever.
