Subhash Chandra Bose
Subhash Chandra Bose was a great son of Mother India. He was known for his courage and dynamism.
He was born in Cuttack of Orissa. Subhash was highly disciplined from his childhood days. He had a learning desire to see India free. He was brilliant in studies. But he never tolerated the British. Hence he was expelled from the college.
Subhash was influenced by Gandhiji to a great extent. He lead protests against the British. Consequently he was arrested and sent to Mandalay Jail in Burma. It was a notorious jail during those times. After release he became the Mayor of Calcutta.
Subhash led a number of protests against the British. Once he hoisted the Indian national flag in Calcutta. The British got angry and asked him to leave the country. He began organising volunteers abroad. He made friendship with Germany and Japan and organized Indian National Army. He gave a fiery speech over the Berlin radio. He declared war against the British.
His army, the INA made advances and succeeded in capturing parts of Assam. But unfortunately Japan had major setbacks in the war. America dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Lakhs of people were killed. Japan surrendered to the enemies, America and Britain. Subhash died in an air crash.
Today Subhash is a role model to us. His selfless sacrifice has a great lesson to all of us. The slogan 'Jai Hind' inspires us even today.
