The land, the soil of India is known for it’s long history of producing great personalities. Bharatvarsh produced masterpieces in each and every aspect, whether it’s related to Artistic beauties or scientific inventions or anything, Bharatvarsh, India tops the list. It’s in the culture and genes of Indians to outperform. One among that list is Subhash Chandra Bose. Yes, the BENGAL TIGER.
Born on 23rd of January 1897, Bose excelled in academic studies. Bose, was known for his militant approach to wipe out British from Indian soil. His views are almost contradictory towards Gandhian ideals. It is beleived that Bose died on 18th of August 1945, in a plane crash, but there is still some controversy on this. He was fondly called as Netaji by the fellow Indians.
The Ministry of Culture, Government of India has decided to celebrate The birthday of this BENGAL TIGER as “Parakram Diwas”,Every year on 23rd of January. It’s truly an honour, and also it is wise to celebrate the Parakram diwas on the birth day of a true Parakrami. SC Bose got 4th rank in ICS examinations which was one of the toughest and most rewarding course at that time, despite of getting professionally a rewarding career, providing Bose an opportunity to settle with a luxury life in or outside India. But the thing is he resigned his post for the sake of nation.Here is a letter from Bose himself.
But guess who would decline the offer like this for the sake of Nation, Bharatvarsh?? Only a true Parakrami can do such things.
Going back to those times when the Britishers were ruling India they faced constant protest, march, and satyagrahas all the time. Even some kind of rebellion also. But they never leaved India. So, it will be foolish to think that we got freedom through non-violence. Yes, world war 2 was constantly raising the heat for British and Bose really saw an opportunity here. He met with the leaders of Japan and Germany which once were the enemies of the British empire. That too when Hitler was a chancellor of Germany. There’s a saying that goes “An Enemy of our enemy is a friend”. That’s what was on the mind of Bose. He also built an Army called “Indian Nation Army”(INA). To remove a ruler there must be pressure all around, both inside and outside and that’s what Bose knew. people got inspired by INA more than the satyagrah of Gandhi and this led to riots within the British serving army and with constant pressure of second world war, the Britishers has no intention to stay in India and that’s what the Bose wanted. He did his job, His service. After India got her independence, the then British PM ‘Atlee’ was asked, “Who played most important role in India’s independence?” Atlee replied, “Subhash chandra Bose,his INA(Indian National Army) and world war 2.” On being asked about role of M.K. Gandhi in India getting her freedom he sarcastically chewed out the word. “M-I-N-I-M-A-L”. The Britishers always felt Bose as a threat to their Empire. Even enemy praised his bravery. And that’s why He was a true “PARAKRAMI”.
Youths were hugely motivated by Netaji to turn against the British Raj, Bose always tried to wake up Indian youths and inspired them to fight against the British, his words were STRAIGHT and CLEAR.
Here are few most popular quotes from Netaji,
1.Give me blood and I will give you freedom.
2.Freedom is not given, it is taken.
3.India is calling. Blood is calling to blood. Get up, we have no time to lose.
4.No real change in history can be achieved by discussions.
5.It is our duty to pay for our liberty with our own blood. The freedom that we win through our sacrifice and exertions,we shall be able to preserve with our own strength.
Happy PARAKRAM DIWAS
Bharat Mata Ki Jai
