India celebrates 123rd birthday of Subhash Chandra Bose who was given the title of Netaji in 1942.
India will be forever grateful to Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose for his prominent role in the contribution towards the freedom struggle. A young leader, the radical wing of the Indian National Congress during the late 20s and the 30s, Bose rose to become a Congress leader in 1938 and 1929.
Born in Cuttack, Orissa he was ninth of the 14 siblings. He was born to Prabhavati Dutt Bose and Janakinath Bose, a lawyer by profession. He studied at Protestant European School and later shifted to Ravenshaw Collegiate School. He got his college degree from Presidency College in Kolkata, the place where he started his struggle towards independent India.
Millions of Indian hearts were ignited to fight for the country’s independence with his famous slogan, “Tum mujhe khoon do, mai tumhe aazadi dunga” (Give me blood, I will give you freedom.)
Check out some tweets of famous personalities who wished Netaji a happy birthday.
