“One individual may die for an idea, but that idea will, after his death, incarnate itself in a thousand lives”
                                                                  - Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose

Netaji was the man who ingrained countless ideas of freedom in the youthful minds of India. And this year, we are celebrating Netaji's 125th birth anniversary. Every year on 23 January India celebrates the birth anniversary of freedom fighter Subhash Chandra Bose. He was born in Odisha on 23 January 1897. Bose was a great politician and an intellectual personality who made a noteworthy contribution to India's struggle for freedom.

Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose is one of the most influential personalities from the freedom struggles. The Government of India has now decided to start the celebrations of Republic Day from January 23 to include the birth anniversary of Netaji. The Government has also announced that a grand statue of Netaji Bose will be constructed at India Gate, as a prominent symbol of gratitude to him. Earlier, the central government had also decided to celebrate Subhash Chandra Bose's birth anniversary as Parakram Diwas.

Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose was a nationalist and a freedom fighter who revolted against the British and encouraged the people of India to resort to revolutionary forms of protest and revolution. He believed Swami Vivekanand as his spiritual mentor. To oppose Britishers Netaji furthermore established the Azad Hind Fauj, a military regiment. Bose also founded the Rani Jhansi regiment, a woman battalion. Countless young people were motivated to join the fight for freedom by Netaji. He represented a social revolutionary and motivated countless Indians to dream of the freedom and contentment they deserve.
