Subash Chandra Bose, a hero of Indian freedom fight who deserves so much more than we actually give him. On reading more and more on Subash Chandra Bose’s life and sacrifices for India, I felt that all Indians are indebted to him for his ultimate determination and love for mother India.
Subash Chandra Bose was born on 23 January, 1897 and his complete life was dedicated for just one cause and that was the freedom of India and the countrymen. He traveled several countries in disguise, also traveled in submarine for three months, it will be hard for any one to even travel 7 days with no special training. Only sailors which are trained very well can stay upto 3 months on a submarine.
We hope you enjoy these photographs of Subash Chandra Bose.

It was a very brave move to even think of Considering to travel from Germany to Japan when the world was fighting a bloody war among themselves.

Subash Chandra Bose meeting with Aazand Hind Fauj Troops and spending time with his army.
He had a very close bond with his troops and he went out of way to declare Aazand Hind Fauj, the first army of free India, even made stamps and insignia of the army. The amount of courage and dedication it must have been required is exemplary.
In the mid Subash Chandra Bose also travelled to Germany but he realized that Germany just wanted to use Indian soldiers for their own propaganda.
However, I don’t believe that Netaji died with that plane crash. A personality like him deserves much more then what as a nation India has given to him. There are documents which are still not declassified related to Subash Chandra Bose by the then government and there are numerous people who believe that Subash Chandra Bose still lived in a disguise of Gumnaami Baba.
We hope the truth of Subash Chandra Bose’s death comes out.
