Tributes to Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose on his 120th birth anniversary, a day very special for every India and certainly for Bengali community ‘coz’ it’s the birthday of Netaji Bose who was ‘manasputra’ (very difficult to translate in English, it’s a Sanskrit term. “mind-born son” is translated term) of Swami Vivekananda and led the way towards freedom movement.¬†Freedom would not have come by following Gandhi’s philosophy of “if some slaps you one cheek then let him slap you on left cheek too”. Freedom has come because of hardliners. Netaji Bose gave the slogan of “tum mujhe khun do, main tumhe aazaadi dunga” and “Chalo Dilli” which worked like miracles and large number of boys and girls jumped into INA mesmerized by these words, rest is history.

Netaji Bose did not die in the plane crash at Taihoku but I am not going into the controversy related to his disappearance which is another big issue.

I am one among those who simply don’t believe the Taihoku story, never believed (my friends are witness who have seen me fighting with anybody who would try to establish the stupid story) I am among those Netaji Bose admirers who believe people like Netaji Bose are immortal, they will live forever…”SabSe Uncha Hai Duniya Me Jhanda Hamara NetaJi Zindabad…Aabad karenge, Aazaad karenge, Aabad karenge…” Pronaam!
