Shubhash Chandra Bose was a great freedom fighter. He was also known as “Netaji”. He was born on 23rd January, 1897. In a Hindu family in Cuttack Odisha. His father’s name was Jankinath Bose and his mother’s name was Prabhavati Devi. He was a very brilliant student in the school. He completed his schooling from Cuttack, matriculation from Calcutta and BA from University of Calcutta in 1918.

Later his father sent him to England to appear in the Indian Civil Services ICS examination. He passed and joined the service, but soon he resigned from the India Civil Services and returned to India to participate in the freedom movement.

He was very much influenced by the nationalist, Deshbandhu Chitranjan Das, his political guru. He motivated the people to join the freedom struggle. Subhash Chandra Bose strongly opposed British rule through the newspaper called “Swaraj”.

He went away to Singapore and formed his own “Indian National Army” also known as “Azad Hind Fauj”. He gave the slogan to his army, “Delhi Chalo” and “Jai Hind”. He inspired his army through his great words, “Give meblood and I will give you freedom”, to make his motherland free from the rule of the Britishers.

It is believed that Netaji died in a plane crash in Taiwan in 1945 but the mystery of his death is still unsolved. Netaji will always be alive within the heart of every Indian as an everlasting inspiration.
