Subhash Chandra Bose was born today in 1897. He is often well dressed, rehearsed and imitated by the school kids in fancy dress competition. And why not ?
A brilliant student, obedient child, passionate youth, forward looking approach in life and above all patriotism in every drop of blood. An inspiration for everyone. That’s why he was referred to as ‘Netaji’ (Leader) in true sense.
Popular about Bose is that, he was the one who tried to take help from Adolf Hitler, the famous dictator, for the freedom struggle of India. For this, Bose was criticised all over.
His promise for freedom of India was so strong that he asked people to give him blood and get freedom in return.
We all know his saying :
Give me blood and I shall give you freedom.
तुम मुझे खून दो, मैं तुम्हें आज़ादी दूंगा।
People followed him blindly.
The World is not sure how Netaji died. So we can call him a man with mysterious death. Although there is a fact that he died in 1945 in a plane crash. His family also believes on this theory. But there are no evidences to prove this. Recently a Taiwanese official claimed to have prepared Netaji’s body for cremation after his death in a plane crash in 1945.
The testimony, contained in UK Foreign Office file No FC1852/6 and dating back to 1956, is among the last few documents to be released to establish that the Indian freedom fighter died in the crash on the outskirts of an airfield in Taipei on August 18, 1945.
Whatever !!! He had an inspiring life.
