The Birth Anniversary of the Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose will be celebrated as ‘Parakam Diwas’ every year on January 23, the Union Government has decided earlier this week.
Popularly known as Netaji, Subhash Chandra Bose was Freedom Fighter who fought against British colonialists before August 15, 1947. During his political career, he also served as the president of the Indian National Congress in 1938.
Besides leaders in political circles, he inspired many among the communities living across the country. He earned popularity among the leaders as well as the common people for his extraordinary leadership skills.
As a result of his relentless efforts and struggle for freedom, Azad Hind Fauj came into existence. Going far beyond one’s imagination, he went even to Germany to secure support for the liberation movement in India. After subsequent efforts, he succeeded in forming Azad Hind Fauz or Indian National Army.
The INA fought with the armies of British imperialists initially in South East Asia, but it surrendered when Japan lost during WW2.
He passed away on August 18, 19456 in a plane crash. However, his death is still a mystery to everyone across the country. Here we have enlisted five lesser-known facts about his death.
