Abstract
Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose is not only a national hero but a true patriot who sacrificed his whole life to liberate the sufferings of Indian masses from the shackles of British imperialism. Though, he had passed ICS exam (Indian Civil Service) he refused the coveted luxurious white color job, and dedicated his life for India’s freedom struggle. He was a keen observer of not only Indian society but also Japanese and European societies. Due to his constant travel within the country and abroad, he was clearly aware of several social problems persisting and its magnitude. He had clarity about the intentions of British colonial rule. He had been twice elected as the President of the Indian National Congress, was put behind the bars for eleven times and had escaped from house arrest on the eve of Second World War. During a time, when transportation facility was very meager and not upto the extent of present day world, he traveled all the way to Afghanistan and finally to Germany in disguise of Orlando Mazotta (Italian name). There Subhas Chandra Bose started mobilizing the masses through his radio lectures. His lectures were so popular, that, it is said, in terms of contribution to India’s freedom struggle and popularity, Mr. Bose is next only to Mahatma Gandhi, the Father of the Nation. Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose had carried out a perilous 90 days long submarine journey and reached Far East, where he formed the Azad Hind Government and its dedicated self-reliant provincial military force, the Indian National Army (I.N.A). He could mobilize the non-resident Indians and during the 2nd World War, nine independent countries gave recognition to Mr. Bose’s government in exile. Subhas Chandra Bose’s charismatic personality had attracted a number of contemporary political personalities in Europe and in East Asia and Bose was revered by them as Netaji (our respected leader as called by non-resident Indians). Bose’s army had hoisted the tri-colour Indian flag in the Indian territory. This paper is an attempt to highlight the important contributions of Subhash Chandra Bose, in India’s freedom struggle.
