Subhas Chandra Bose and North East India by Dr. Rabindra Bordoloi
Subhas Chandra Bose was one of the greatest personality as far as the freedom movement in India was concerned. He was a very popular leader of the country and worked to free India from British dominion. Bose had become twice the president of the INC and united the people to fight for freedom. The Indian political scenario, particularly his ideological and methodological conflicts with Gandhiji had compelled him to leave his motherland. His participation and his leadership in INA and the high idealism of the INA movement and Bose’s grand scheme of India’s liberation inspired huge number of Indian people in an unprecedented manner. The fiery patriotism, supreme courage and gifted organizational abilities of Subhas Bose were unquestionable. With the leaders and people of North East India Netaji had maintained cordial relations and tried to understand the problems of the region. The revolutionary ideas of Netaji had attracted common people of the region to participate in the war of India’s independence. After the formation of the INA in June, 1942 Netaji tried to liberate the country from North Eastern side and the forces of INA along with Japanese troops fought with British forces in the region. Many people of the region had supported the revolutionary ideas of Netaji and join the Azad Hind Fauj to liberate the country. The flag of free India was first planted by the soldiers of INA at Moirang of present Manipur state. Netajis’s mission in India is much heard and talked about both in the scholastic and academic realm. Many facts and records on Subash Chandra Bose are still not getting proper attention. A systematic study and research would necessary to highlight all the hidden aspects of Netaji’s role in the freedom movement of India. This peer reviewed book contains research papers on the role played by Netaji in the freedom movement of India with special reference to North East India.
