In the early 20th century, Subhas Chandra Bose was a well-known figure in the Indian independence movement against British authority. Bose belonged to the Indian National Congress, a group of politicians that led the fight for independence. Bose founded the Forward Bloc, a political organisation that intended to unite all anti-British troops in India, since he believed in using force to gain independence.
Bose is frequently referred to as Netaji, which means “Respected Leader” in Hindi, and his contributions to the cause of Indian independence are well recognised and honoured in India. In India, he is revered as a national hero, and January 23 is commemorated as Martyrs’ Day.
Indian independence from British domination was fought for by revolutionary freedom warrior Subhash Chandra Bose. He was born in Cuttack, India, in 1897 into a prosperous family with a high level of education. As a result of his academic prowess and exceptional grades, Bose was awarded a scholarship to study at Cambridge University in UK.
