About Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Birth Anniversary

Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose’s birth anniversary is celebrated on the 23rd of January every year in India. He was born in the year 1897. Throughout his life, Netaji had been a significant entity in the history of India and has been termed as a national hero.

He was the one who not just revived but also led the Indian National Army. In his honor, the capital city of the state of West Bengal, that is Kolkata named its largest serving airport after him. Thus, the airport is known as ‘’Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport.’’

The day is celebrated throughout the country with great pride as well as honor to pay homage to the relentless pursuit of sacrifice, power, and courage that Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose was, for fighting for justice and independence of India.

Pursuing his academics from the University of Calcutta as well as the University of Cambridge, Bose went on to take up a number of political roles throughout his life, which included designations like the President of the Indian National Congress, the Prime Minister, the Head of the State, among many others.

He believed firmly in the concept of Poorna Swaraj—which means “self-rule,” and opposed the dominance of British Imperialism. He was rewarded with the title of “Netaji” which means “Leader,” and ever since then has been popular in history with his full name as “Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose.”

While his fight against the British Raj has deemed him a national hero, a lot of controversies arose when he sought help from the Nazis in eradicating the British rulers from the country.

His famous line that said “Give me blood, and I’ll give you freedom!” has been immensely popular in history. The 23rd of January, 2017 this year will mark the 120th birth anniversary of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose.

All of Netaji’s ardent followers have demanded for the day to be celebrated as a ‘’Desh Prem Divas’’ denoting love for one’s country, in order to commemorate and pay tribute to the great leader’s endless sacrifice and love for his country.
