In January 1942, he began his regular broadcasts from Radio Berlin. On 04 July, he took over from Rash Behari Bose the leadership of the Indian Independence Movement  in East  Asia, organised the Azad Hind Fauj (the Indian National Army), became its Supreme Commander on 25 August and proclaimed the Provisional Government of Azad Hind on 21October.

The I.N.A. Headquarters was shifted to Rangoon in January 1944 and marching thence towards their Motherland with the war cry “Chalo Delhi” [Let’s move to Delhi] on their lips, the Azad Hind Fauj crossed the Burma Border, and stood on Indian soil on 18 March 1944.

Gandhiji paid his tribute to Netaji in the following words, – ‘The greatest lesson that we can draw from Netaji’s life is the way in which he infused the spirit of unity amongst his men so that they could rise above all religious and provincial barriers and shed together their blood for the common cause. His unique achievement would surely immortalize him in the pages of history.’

Devoid of any actual evidence as well as officially authentication of the death he is presumed to have died “in absentia” on 18 August 1945 from injuries sustained in an alleged aircraft crash in Taihoku (Taipei) Taiwan (Formosa). Till date, his death or absentia is a great mystery.

Netaji Subhas Bose’s birth anniversary, on 23rd January is also observed as the National Day of Patriotism every year.

Is there any relationship of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose with the tiny area – Baranagar?  Certainly Yes. To know more continue  reading.
