Essay On Subhash Chandra Bose
Subhash Chandra Bose is one of the great freedom fighters who have helped India win freedom. The spirits of the Indians rose when he gave the slogan “Give me blood and I will give you freedom.” Thousands of Indians were inspired and participated in the freedom movement. He said that whether he lives or he doesn’t, the country must be free.
Subhash Chandra Bose was born on the 23rd of January, 1879 in Cuttack. His father Janakidas Bose was a renowned lawyer. Subhash Chandra completed his primary education in Cuttack. He passed his Matriculation examination in 1913. He completed his B. A from the Presidency College, Kolkata with First Class. He immediately got a government job but seeing the bad condition of the country, he quit his job. After that, he started participating in the freedom movement under the leadership of Chittaranjan Das, a well-known patriot of Bengal. He was an extremist from the beginning itself. But he had a deep respect for Gandhiji.
He participated in the Non-Cooperation Movement and in the Dandi March with Gandhiji. Mr. Chittaranjan Dasgupta, the Mayor of Kolkata Corporation, appointed Subhash Chandra Bose at a higher rank in the corporation. During this period the British arrested him by raising false charges of the assassination of a British officer and sent him to the prison at Mandalay. He was also the Mayor of the Kolkata Congress Corporation and the President of the Kolkata session of the Congress.
However, he resigned as a member of the congress because his views did not match those of the congress. He formed a separate party called the ‘Forward Block.’ The objectives of this party were total freedom and Hindu-Muslim unity. The British government got angry and arrested him. He was taken out of prison in 1940 for not being well and was kept under house- arrest. But he successfully escaped to Afghanistan and then traveled to Germany.
He gave the message of freedom to the country through the German radio station. He then went to Japan and formed the ‘Azad Hind Sena’ there. He went to Burma (Myanmar) to spread the freedom movement. Azad Hind Sena fought with the British army in Imphal. However, during the second world war, the members of ‘Azad Hind Sena’ were captured after the surrender of Japan.
While traveling back to India, it was declared that the airplane carrying Subhash Chandra Bose had met with an accident on 23rd August 1945 and that Netaji was no more. But his death still remains a mystery. Netaji’s name is always taken with respect. His slogan ‘Jai Hind’ has become a national slogan. The hoisting of the national flag is always followed with this slogan.
