“You give me blood, I shall give you freedom”,on his 125th birthday every year January 23 is celebrated as Parakram Diwas.
On this day a hero was born so let’s remember Subhash Chandra Bose who was also called netaji because of his charisma and bold character, named by Adolf Hitler, born in 1837 died a mysterious death in the year 1945. Netaji followed Jawaharlal Nehru and led the Indian National Congress’ left wing in the late 1920’s and later became the president of the party in 1938.
He was preceded by Jawaharlal Nehru in politics and tried to follow in his footsteps but because of some differences with Mahatma Gandhi he could not stay for longer as President, despite he always adored Mahatma Gandhi.
He was placed behind the bars not just once or twice but multiple times by the British Government but obviously he was a great patriotic man so he escaped from jail many times and continued his fight for freedom. Bose has always said things that has inspired all the generations and will continue to do so on his anniversary here are few quotes that could have set benchmark for all the freedom fighters
- It is blood alone that can pay the price of freedom, give me blood and I shall give you freedom.
- Life loses half its interest if there is no struggle-if there are no risks to be taken.
- Never lose faith in the destiny of India. There is no power in the earth that can keep India in bondage. India will be free and that too soon.
One can easily sense the rage against Britishers who made India it’s colony and the hunger to set India free after reading these quotes he delivered.
