    Re: Subhash Chandra Bose

    Good documentary, I watched the whole thing.

    Of all our nationalist leaders I feel that he is the greatest. His only concern was his nation's freedom and he was determined to use any means necessary to achieve it. A great role model of a pragmatic and patriotic leader; someone who we could definitely use today.

    I believe if he had lived and succeeded then there would be no partition since he would have gotten all the divisive elements eliminated and focussed on authorotarian state machinery. Something between ussr and china. I think we would be in a stronger position economically and geopolitically if he was incharge.

    Re: Subhash Chandra Bose

    A lot of mistakes were made in the early years of our Independence which had long-term strategic consequences for us, like Nehru going to U.N. during the First Indo-Pak War. Nehru was very intelligent and charismatic but he was also naive and lacked the pragmatism and geopolitical common sense that Netaji had. A lot of headaches could have been avoided today if we were more assertive back then. But there is no use wishing for the past to be different now.

    Opening lines of the documentary

    "The British had been the colonial masters of the Indian subcontinent for more than a century. Bringing unity and stability to the country, they ruled with the consent of India's governing class." :tsk:

    Re: Subhash Chandra Bose

    It is the unfortunate truth. A clear sense of national identity was not present when the wankers first arrived.

    Re: Subhash Chandra Bose

    Has M.K.Gandhi completely eclipsed Bose in Indian history?

    Re: Subhash Chandra Bose

    The documentary relates that of 10,000 Indian soldiers captured in North Africa, 2/3 declined to join Bose and the Wehrmacht's Free India Legion. I believe what I heard was a reference to "eating the King's salt."

    I found this interesting link.

    Re: Subhash Chandra Bose

    People have different views, gandhi is more popular but for nationalists bose is superior because of his direct action rather than doing non-violent fasting. In an ideal world gandhi's method is morally superior but we dont live in an ideal world.

    If i was born during that time i would have joined bose rather than gandhi but that doesn't mean i dont respect gandhi.

    You must either be delusional or are completely unaware of Indian History. Congress existed much before Gandhi. They were a nationalistic organisation. Subhash Chandra Bose was a contemporary of Gandhi, not his successor. Better review those history books, YouAreAnIidiot.

    Gandhi became famous only because Godse thought it prudent to neutralise him before India further spiraled down the path of his destructive pseudo-secularism. He was, what one might call 'dead-famous'.
    On the other hand, Bose became a hero long before that. Surely you don't mean to say that Gandhi's achievements were any more important than Netaji's do you? One man had the gall to challenge the English might through military retaliation while the other merely begged for Home Rule and stopped Quit India Movement. No use comparing the two.

    Gandhi is more popular because he has had his face printed on almost every note minted in Independent India. You keep doing the same for Ambedkar, Netaji, Patel, Abul Kalam Azad, Nehru and others and they will become just as famous. Gandhi's policies found wide acceptance because not many Indians were brave enough to rise up against the British with arms. If 25% of the population had joined in the armed revolt, then the British would have vanished without a trace. It is our great misfortune that Indian society was not as compacted then to execute this. From that point of view, Gandhi did something which most people had the courage to do, and due credit has to be given to MK Gandhi for that. But the way he is deified by the Congress as if he was some God is absolutely disgusting and should be abhorred. Like all people Gandhi had his failings, and therefore we must not be so quick to deify someone like him(Gandhi) and 'demonise' those who were not on the same page with him.
