Subhash Chandra Bose, one of the prominent Indian freedom fighters was born on 23 January 1897 in Orissa. He had played a major role in the country’s independence. His contributions towards Independence are always remembered in history.
Talking about his family life, he was born to Janakinath Bose and Prabhavati Devi. Netaji had pursued his B.A. in Philosophy from the Presidency College in Calcutta. Since childhood, he was influenced by the teachings of Swami Vivekananda. Later, he had moved to England and appeared for the Civil Services Examination in which Netaji was placed fourth overall. Due to his love for the nation, he resigned from the Indian Civil Service and returned to India in 1921. He had initially joined Congress Party but due to differences in the ideologies, he had formed Swaraj Party in 1922.
During the struggle of independence, he had given many revolutionary slogans like ‘Jai Hind’ and “Give me blood and I will give you freedom”. In 1943, he revived the Indian National Army and led it to fight against the British during the World War II. He is also known as Netaji.
On his 121st birth anniversary, the nation pays tribute to revolutionary freedom fighter Subhash Chandra Bose. It was urged by Chief Minister of West Bengal Mamata Banerjee to PM Modi to announce birthdays of Subhash Chandra Bose and Swami Vivekananda as national holidays. Check out the tweets.
