Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose - Most deserving Bharat Ratnalost in Oblivion
“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
.He believedthat
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
Lord Atlee
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?” 
In his reply Atlee said
“Theprincipal reason was the erosion of loyalty among the Indian Army and Navy personnel tothe British Crown as a result of the military activities of Netaji Subhas Bose.”
Toward theend of prolonged discussion Mr. Chakraborty asked Atlee what was the extent of Gandhi's influence upon theBritish decision to quit India. Hearing this question, Atlee's lips became twisted in a sarcastic smile as heslowly chewed out the word,
Trial of INA prisoners at Red Fort aroused revolt and unrest all over UNDIVIDED INDIA in Army, in Navy, in Police, in Public and in Government officials. Unrest started even before the INA trial started when people came to know the heroic deeds of INA and Netaji.
 Between 11 and 14 February 1946, the streets of Calcutta, Bombay and Delhi witnessed unique political demonstrations in which Hindus and Muslims forgot their differences and came together to fight the I.N.A.'s battles.
On 18 February 1946, a revolt began on HMS Talwar, a training ship of theRoyal Indian Navy in Bombay.
 By nightfall on the 20 Feb.’ 1946, virtually the whole of the Royal Indian Navy was in open rebellion. 78warships in the various ports of India: Bombay, Karachi, Madras, Vizagapatnam, Calcutta, Cochin, and  Andaman’s and nearly all the shore establishments had hauled down the Union Jack.
On 20 February 1946, Atlee
 pledged the British government to transfer power to Indian hands, if necessary, as two separate nations, 'not later than June 1948’.
 Between 22 and 25 February 1946, the Royal Indian Armed Forces in Bombay and Madras went on strikeand on the 27 February 1946, Indian soldiers in Jabalpur followed.
 In Bombay there had been, what even the British owned ‘Times of India’ was forced to call, a 'MassUprising’. About 6,00,000 workers from the textile mills of Bombay had gone on strike to fight with British troops in the streets and lanes of Bombay.
Undoubtedly, a revolutionary situation had been created without any existing political leader.
Gandhi, Nehru and the Congress had nothing to do with the entire upsurge.
Such a situation existed in 1945-46 owed to Netaji Subhas Bose and his INA.True, hisarmy did not parade as victors in the Red Fort; but their trial had aroused therevolutionary feelings throughout the country. This had proved that his belief in arevolutionary consciousness was grounded in a deeper understanding of the Indian peoplethan his contemporary politicians.
Wavell wrote:
"… In many cities, there are more Muslims who support Subhas than Jinnah… We aresitting on a volcano that is about to erupt."
Attlee quickly understood implications and started negotiatingIndependence of India with Indian leaders.
once said,“Let us create history, and let somebody else write it”.
Did Netaji die in Plane Crash at Taihaku on 18th August 1945? If not,what happened to him? Where had he gone?
This was confirmed by Taiwan Government as early as 1956 to a group of MPs who visited Taiwan to make inquiries in the matter and 
to Mr. Anuj Dhar, the writer of 
in 2003 through an e-mail.
 MUKHERJEE COMMISSION has very categorically concluded the same after confirming it fromTaiwan Government that there was no Plane Crash in and around Taiwan during 14
August to 25
 October 1945.
History goes like this:
On 20 November 1944, while in Tokyo, Netaji approached then Soviet Ambassador, JacobMalik for support fromSoviet Government.
Later Netaji made a secret trip to Russia inDecember 1944. 
Netaji’s plan of shifting his base to Russian Territory was a well thought move,
discussed thoroughly with top Japanese Army Commanders and approved by Stalin and Molotov(then Russian Foreign Minister) in 2
week of August 1945 through Jacob Malik (then Soviet Ambassador toJapan).
Japanese held Netaji in highest esteem and they did not want him to be caught as ‘WarCriminal’. Japanese also saw Netaji as a person who can do something to improve relationbetween Japan and Russia and protect their interest in Manchuria.
 During August 1945, Manchuria had presence of Kwantung Army (Japan),
 Kuomintang troops of Chiang Kai- shek, groups of People Liberation Army (Communist Party of China)
and then Red Army (Russian) took over the command almost without any resistance.
Such an area was ideal for Netaji’s future plans as all these groups were at war among themselves, but friendly to Subhas Bose, rather Netaji was seen as a potential mediator between them, as a strong anti-imperialist and  pro-Asian Leader.
Many people will be surprised to learn that the secret diplomatic ties were establishedbetween Stalin and Japanese Emperor ‘Hirohito’ during Second World War,through KatoKachu (an Indian), the Consulate of Provisional Government of Free India (Azad Hind) atOmsk office in Russia established by Netaji in December1944.
Field Marshal Count Terauchi, Commander-in-Chief Southern Command of JapaneseQuantung Army(starting from Burma, Thiland, China to Manchuria) and close relative of Emperor of Japan – Hirihito,had great respect and affection for Netaji. He instructed General Isoda to help Netaji to reach Russian Occupied Territory in Manchuria on his(Terauchi’s) own responsibility and directed Lt. General Shidei to accompany Netaji.General Shidei, who knew Russian language and Manchurian topography very well, was goingto take command of Quantung Army in order to have a peaceful surrender of Japan to RedArmy.
In the evening of 17th August 1945 at 5.45 PM, Netaji took leave of his Staff at Saigon Airportand boarded the Japanese Bomber Plane with General Shidei and Col. Habibur Rehman.Plane reached Dalat, Headquarter of Field Marshal Terauchi – the Supreme Commander of Japanese Quantung Army. Thus, Netaji and General Shidei were separated from others. Nobody went to Taihoku, hence there was no Plane Crash. (Taiwan Government hasconfirmed that there was no plane crash on Matsuyama Airport of Taihoku from 14.08.1945 to25.10.1945.)
