“India owes more to Subhas Bose than to any other man” - MichaelEdwards
“Future generations will read the amazing story of Netaji’s life - his fearless courage, hisvenerable renunciation, his sufferings and sacrifice- with pride and reverence.”But, arewe ready to re-write the history of India’s freedom? If real story becomes public, manyrevered leaders of India would be exposed.
Unique Personality and Political Ideology of Netaji
Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose is a name that glitters with glory in the history of freedom movements of the world. He emerged as an outstanding leader, not of a nation or two but of the whole Asian continent, who first resigned from ICS, the topmost service in India those days; rose to the topmost political position in India (Congress President); then moved from one corner to other in Europe as well as in Asia during the flames of second World War; established a Provisional Government of Free India and built an army of more than 50000 men, out of nothing, to fight the mighty British Empire and imperialist powers of the world. There is no parallel leader in the world history who interacted/met and influenced so many top leaders of his period in so many countries; situated in different parts of the world and with diverse ideologies (Gandhi, De Valera, Attlee, Mussolini,Hitler, Tojo, Stalin, Mao, Ho Chi Minh, just to name a few)
Netaji was a seasoned Revolutionary and passionate Nationalist.Throughout his political career, India'sliberation from British rule, remained Bose's foremost political goal; indeed, it was a lifelong obsession;
his obsession was not adulation or power but rather freedom for his beloved Motherland - a goal for which he was willing to suffer for any length and sacrifice any thing, even his status in politics and his life
According to British secret records Subhas was “
implacable foe ofBritish rule in India
” and “
the most dangerous man in India
Bose aimed for nothing less than the formation of
a new India and a happy India on thebasis of the eternal principles of liberty, democracy and socialism
greater emphasis should be placed on social goals than on the needs or desires of individuals.
The Great War cry of'JAI HIND'was given to the nation by Netaji.'Do or Die' used
by Gandhiji during the Quit India Movement of 1942, was given by Netaji first inJalpaiguri Congress summit.
“The greatest and lasting act of Netaji was that he abolished alldistinctions of caste and class. He was an Indian first and last” -Gandhiji

Chief Justice P.B. Chakraborty of Calcutta High Court, who was Acting Governor of West Bengal in Indiawhen
made his first (personal) visit to an Independent India and spent two days in the Governor's palace at Calcutta, asked a direct question to Mr. Atlee:
“What was the real cause that had led theBritish to quit India in spite of winning Second World War?”
