The forgotten leader – Subhas Chandra Bose Part -1
India has many patriotic leaders. One among them is Subhas Chandra Bose. He is the leader, unfortunately forgotten leader. Forgotten by present politician and political parties, but not by Indians whom he loved so much.
India was ruled by British for over 200 hundred years. From 1938 to 1947 India has gone through a terrible period. Several leaders sacrificed their lives in the struggle for independence.
Glory of our Mother Land
India comprised of vast land, rich resources and generous people. An Indian never waded a war with any country for expanding its territories. Probably it is the only country in the world which never used its army for aggression to concur others land. India teachers used to teach to many, including foreigners in a university at Takshasilla (now in Bihar). India has many princely states ruled by various Kings. Unfortunately, these kings never had hormonal relations with each other. Taking this as advantage, East India Company occupied their kingdoms one after the other and made us slaves to British Empire.
Struggle for independence
In India, the term First War of Independence was first popularized by Vinayak Damodar Savarkar in his 1909 book The History of the War of Indian Independence, which was originally written in Marathi.
Mohan Das Karamchand Gandhi, whom we call affectionately as Father of the Nation, joined politics after he returned from South Africa in 1914. Thus M K Gandhi era n Indian politics started from 1914 to 1947 till he was assassinated in 1947.
Subhas Chandra Bose is highly patriotic Indian and is a hero in all the fields he has chosen. A token of example is the ICS (Indian Civil Service) examination conducted by British in 192. He came fourth in that examination. He relinquished his services and returned to India in 1921.After returning to India, Swaraj was the paper he started in Bengal. Chittaranjan Das was his mentor. Thus Bose political careered started in 1921, he worked as CEO of Calcutta Municipal Corporation when his mentor was Mayor. When he was involved in anti-British activities, he was sent to jail and there he became of patient of Tuberculosis, a deadly disease. During his illness he authored a book Indian Struggle, which was published in London. This book cover the period between 1920 to 1934.
Bose opined that Indian freedom should come from the use of force against British, thus he contradicted Gandhi`s ideology of non-violence. Bose-Gandhi`s relationship ran into trouble because of ideological conflict.
In 1939 he formed All India Forward Bloc. Bose wanted India to have a Authoritarianism government in which the central power lies with Centre with limited political freedoms
