    Today, the 23rd January, in the year 1897, born the legend of Indian Freedom Struggle, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, the idol and icon to the people downtrodden in the apathy of foreign rulers.

    His iron resolve to free his motherland by organising an Army , Indian National Army (INA), to fight against the foreign ruler, though was not successful at last but was enough reel down the nerve of Tyrannic, to leave the country.

    Though he is not with us, but still he rules the heart of freedom lovers and young of our country.

    The day, is celebrated as 'Desh Prem Divas' through out West Bengal.

    Long Live Netaji!

    Happy Birthday to Netaji where ever he is. Is lok ya par lok. Its also more than time we know the truth about his death, either in the crash or otherwise so that a memorial can be made and his life and death for our country be both commemorated and celebrated.

    Second that. Its time for that. Also, its time nation gives due to unsung heroes of Independence struggle like Tilak, Bose, Bhagat Singh, Lala Lajpat Rai, Azad...etc. The nation seems to commemorate only Gandhi. Then post-independence we have Nehru and Indira being commemorated. Infact, we celebrate Children's day on Nehru's birthday. Where is a rememberence for other heroes?

    I think its high time for SC to conclude the troubles around 'Bharat Ratna' for Netaji. There should be some clause to award this title keeping the posthumous or non-posthumous status aside. No movement on this since 1992.

    Actually, not just Netaji, but many freedom fighters are eligible for it and must be awarded this highest prize as acknowledgment of the nation towards its heroes. The scope of their achievement is not important, the mere attempt to achieve against extra-ordinary odds is enough for them to be eligible for Bharat Ratna.

    Indeed.

    Although I feel insulted when Bharat Ratna was awarded to Netaji & was later withdrawn just because his living status was in question. Some special arrangement in legislation & related articles should have been made to honor the hero. Sadly it seems everyone has lost interest in resolving the matter.

    My Salute to the legendary hero of the country-- one of the true sons of the soil and a hero who shall always be remembered. Today's are the most difficult times when we need people like you the most. Your courage forms the foundation of our military forces, your resolve enthralls the heart of every dedicated Indian and your patriotism is undaunted and you are an inspiration for millions of us. You O netaji, were the most deservant of the post of leader of modern India, something that cheap politics of colonial slave dogs did not let happen by putting their own puppet and slave as the Father of our Fearless and Ancient Nation.

    My only regret is that today you are not there to guide us physically, to inspire us mentally and to inspire us spiritually for being in the superpower status that has always been our ancient birthright. However, your legend shall continue to inspire our youth, to fight against adharma and evil and be assured that we will do our best never to let your sacrifice go in vain.

    JAI HIND!!

    Netaji's birth anniversary celebrated across West Bengal
    IANS, Jan 23, 2011, 07.58pm IST

    KOLKATA: Unfurling of the national flag, march pasts, colourful rallies and speeches marked the 114th birth anniversary of legendary freedom fighter Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose across West Bengal, where the day was celebrated as 'Desh Prem Divas' on Sunday.

    Hundreds of people thronged Netaji's residence - Netaji Bhawan - on Elgin Road in south Kolkata to pay their homage to the great leader. Netaji Bhawan also houses the Netaji Research Bureau (NRB), a society formed by Netaji's nephew Sisir Kumar Bose in 1957.

    Delivering the Netaji Oration - If only Netaji had participated in post-independent India building - in the NRB compound, founder-chairman of Infosy N R Narayana Murthy regretted that due respect has not been shown to the great leader. "We have failed to pay due respect to Netaji. It is time this is corrected."

    Lauding Netaji for his courage, Narayana Murthy said had Netaji been part of post-independence nation-building, India would have become the globe's second most powerful economy ahead of China.

    West Bengal governor M K Narayanan said he would write to the central government for celebrating the day as Deshprem Divas across the country.

    The governor and chief minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee garlanded Netaji's statue on Red Road in the city hub. Bhattacharjee and other Left Front leaders participated in a programme at the base of the statue where personnel of Kolkata Police, Rapid Action Force and National Cadet Corps took out a colourful march past.

    Ashok Ghosh, state secretary of All India Forward Bloc (AIFB) - founded by Netaji in 1939 - requested the central government to declare Netaji's birthday as Deshprem Divas across the country in order to take his ideology to the nation's young generation. Netaji's statues across the state were garlanded and decorated with flowers, as youngsters raised the tri-colour in various localities.

    Bhattacharjee later unveiled Netaji's statue at Noapara in North 24 Parganas district.

    The state headquarters of AIFB organised a picture exhibition on Netaji and various moments of his life and struggle. State finance minister Asim Dasgupta garlanded Netaji's portrait at state secretariat- Writer's Building.

    Netaji: The legend of the forgotten hero
    Biswajeet Panda
    Sunday, January 23, 2011, 12:24 [IST]

    [​IMG]

    As India struggles being neck-deep in the quagmire of corruption and vested interests, a man 's birthday will quietly pass by. Many say he is the forgotten hero, but to some others he is the unspoken hero who has never got his due. Subhash Chandra Bose or Netaji as he is fondly called, if alive would have turned 114 today on Jan 23.

    Buzz up!
    His contribution to the Indian freedom struggle is at par with the Mahatma, but still in the official circles he is never spoken of in the same vein as Mahatma Gandhi, Pandit Nehru or Sardar Vallabhai Patel. The man who quit the prestigious Indian Civil Service, risked his life to flee the nation to raise an armed struggle against the mighty British rulers of India certainly doesn't deserve the snub being meted out.


    Though the West Bengal government is said to be celebrating the day as 'Desh Prem Divas', there still has been no initiative from the Central Government to mark the day as a special occasion. There are many far lesser mortals whose birthday is being celebrated as someday or the other but not of this man who for long fought a battle for independence on his own.

    Government's apathy towards one of the greatest sons of India has many a times befuddled the billion plus population of the country, but no headway seems to have been achieved in making the man receive the glory he so rightly deserves. He doesn't have a political legacy to advocate his case in the corridors of power, but his actions and patriotism has for ever left an indelible imprint in the hearts of the common man who still love for what he managed to do.

    Awards and recognisation can only externally accentuate the place that he has managed to build in the heart of every patriotic Indian, but the lack of them though immaterial to his followers does indeed present the government and the country in poor light.

    Bose who advocated complete independence for India at the earliest as opposed to the All-India Congress Committee who wanted it in phases, through Dominion status was born on Jan 23, 1897 in Cuttack. Right from the very beginning he was a brilliant student aand fiercely patriotic.

    As was the convention then he appeared for the Civil Services exams and passed out with flying colours. But serving the British was the last thing in his mind.

    He worked with the Congress for long, but a difference of opinion with the leadership and the Congress' said failure to save Bhagat Singh from the gallows, prompted him to shun the path of non-violence and resort to radical methods of violence and armed struggle to depose the British from India.

    Serving a house-arrest, he quite amazingly slipped from the ruthless British government and went from Hitler to Mussolini to seek their support in overthrowing the British from India. He persevered for long, before eventually managing to form the Indian National Army(INA) that consisted of the POWs of the World War. Limited in resources, his sharp rheteorics inspired thousands to fight for the independence of India. Such was his oratory skills and the fervour to liberate India that in no time, he managed to raise an army of more than a million who walked all the way from Japan to India forgoing food, water and proper rest. They had limited ammunition and the daunting prospect of facing a mighty army, but it was Netaji's sincere dedication that ensured the zeal never waivered.

    After initial victory, they gradually began to loose, but not for once did they beat a retreat. Netaji is then said to have died in air-crash, when he was on his way to Japan to seek arms and ammunition. His death in the crash is still under mystery. Some say he survived it but never returned to India where his contribution to the struggle for independence was meted out with indifference.

    His death is shrouded in mystery, but those who have keenly followed his life are unwilling to accept the stories and have ever since been pressurising successive governments to make public the enquiry reports of his death probe. As to why it has still not been done does only add credence to the stories of him being alive after the crash and living a life in disguise.

    Such is the extent of people's love for him, that most believe he didn't die then and continued to live in disguise because he was too ashamed of the state of affairs in the country, especially the rampant corruption that existed and continues to do even now.

    His death not withstanding he still lives in the conscience of a billion Indians and whether his birthday is commemorated officially or not, there will still be millions who will pay homage to the great man and thank God for giving them birth in a country where once lived a soul so noble and a heart so patriotic.
