Subhash Chandra Bose: A true nationalist
“Give me blood and I shall give you freedom,” Subhash Chandra Bose not only proclaimed thus but also lived up to his words. A true nationalist, he didn’t rethink before dying for sovereignty of India. Today is his 111th birth anniversary.
REVERED AS Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, the great Indian freedom fighter against the British Rule and the prominent national leader of the Indian Independence Movement was born on January 23, 1897, in Cuttack in Orissa. The legend, with a desire to free the nation, plunged into politics after resigning from the esteemed Indian Civil Service in April 1921 regardless of his high grades in the merit list, and went about to be reformed into an active member of India’s independence movement.
Bose was elected the president of the Indian National Congress (INC) twice, in1937 and 1939. Mahatma Gandhi’s non-violent strategies were never appreciated or approved by Bose. He deemed that Gandhi’s tactics would never facilitate India achieve independence. So his ideological clashes with Mahatma Gandhi led him to quit the INC. And being a strong advocate of aggressive and violent combat, he grounded All India Forward Bloc in 1939, a political party. Thus, began his battle for freedom to overthrow the British Empire.
The Indian nationalist was arrested eleven times for his anti-British movements between 1920 and 1941. But nothing could stop this hero, who was absolutely committed to return his motherland its lost sovereignty.
Bose piloted the youth wing of the Congress Party and headed the trade union movement in India. Indian National Army (Azad Hind Fauj) was his establishment. He also structured another wing of Congress called Service League, and was greatly regarded for his contributions.
Notwithstanding his apparent hatred for the British Empire, he had a profound penchant for its systematic attitude and tenaciously disciplinarian stance towards life.
Bose focused on the democratic system, which he thought was the apposite option for India. He was the true supporter of independence, yet is not endowed with the amount of significance he deserves. Gandhi’s Congress Party came to rule post independence and Bose’s efforts were barely kept in mind. When Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru and other leaders’ birth anniversaries are celebrated nationally, why not Subhash Chandra Bose’s?
Bose’s ways to liberate India from the Eastern front persists to cause intense discussions in the Indian society, even today. Every Indian should salute his strong nationalism, vigorous efforts to release India from her bounds and the remarkable journey he undertook in the quest to meet his objectives.
