The country is celebrating the 125th birth anniversary of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, the brave son of Mother India. The Narendra Modi government at the Center is celebrating his birthday as Parakram Diwas. Now the Republic Day celebrations will start from his birthday. Know how Netaji came into politics, why he resigned from the ICS exam and many more.
Who was Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose
Born on 23 January 1897 in Cuttack, Odisha, Bengal Division, Subhash Chandra Bose was the 9th child among 14 children of his parents. His father Janakinath Bose was a famous lawyer of that time. Influenced by his father, he decided to pursue higher education. This is the reason that Netaji passed the prestigious ICS i.e. Indian Civil Service examination of the British Government in England in 1920. But since childhood, the feeling of getting India’s independence from the British was ingrained in his mind. Because the behavior of the British was second to the Indians.
During Netaji’s college days, he strongly protested the objectionable statement of an English teacher about Indians, due to which he was expelled from the college. The Jallianwala Bagh massacre in 1919 left him quite disturbed.
Passed the difficult exam of ICS, but had resigned
It was not easy to clear the ICS exam at the age of 24, but Subhash Chandra Bose achieved this position with hard work. But the passion to get freedom from the slavery of the British was such that on April 22, 1921, at the age of 24, he left the job of ICS and jumped into the war of independence.
When did the journey of politics start?
Subhash Chandra Bose joined Chittaranjan Das after returning from England to India. The youth considered Subhash Chittaranjan Das as his political guru. Since he was elected to a prestigious post like ICS, his vision was quite clear. Therefore, in a short span of time in politics, he kept on moving forward. Netaji was a young leader of the Garam Dal of the Indian National Congress in the late 1920s and 1930s. He opposed the arrival of the Prince of Wales to India in 1921. Along with Deshbandu Chittaranjan Das, Subhash had raised his voice strongly against this royal reception.
Subhash Chandra Bose ate sticks with the British
When the Simon Commission came to India in 1928, the Congress showed it black flags. Then Subhash had led this movement in Kolkata. In the same year i.e. in 1928, the annual session of Congress was held in Kolkata under the chairmanship of Motilal Nehru. In this convention, Subhash, wearing a khaki uniform, saluted Motilal Nehru in a military manner. On 26 January 1931, Subhash was leading a huge front by hoisting the national flag in Kolkata, when the police fired sticks on him and injured him and sent him to jail. Netaji served 11 terms of imprisonment in his lifetime.
