In our country, many great heroes were born in the past. They were great Patriots. They sacrificed their lives for the freedom of their motherland. We remember their names with love and respect. My favourite National Hero, among the great heroes of modern India, the name of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose comes uppermost in my mind. He is my favourite National hero. He is the glory of India. He is the symbol of struggle and sacrifice.

Life of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose:

The life of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose was very attractive. It is full of heroic activities. He was born on 23rd January in 1897 in Cuttack, the capital of Orissa. His father Janaki Nath Bose was a famous lawyer. A brilliant student throughout his academic career, he stood second in the Matriculation Examination. But above all, he was one of the greatest Patriots of India. He refused to accept service under the British government after passing the ICS Examination. He jumped into the national movement of India and became the President of the National Congress in 1938.

Activities for Freedom Movement:

During the second world war, he was interned in his own house. But one night he escaped from his house throwing dust into the vigilant eyes of the gourds. He left India in disguise and went first to Germany and then to Singapore where with the help of Rashbihari Bose he organised the Azad Hind Fouz. It was here that Subhash Chandra Bose began to be called ‘Netaji’ by the soldiers of the I.N.A. With this army, Netaji started his heroic and triumphant March up to Imphal, the capital of Manipur but thereafter had to retreat for want of food and arms. With his heart writhing in pain Netaji left for Tokyo in a plane but alas never to return.


There is a mystery around Netaji’s death. Though there is a rumour that Netaji died in a plane crash, many Indians still believe that Netaji is still alive. Dead or alive our beloved Netaji will remain ever alive in our mind.
