‘Remember that the greatest crime is to compromise with injustice and wrong…’
A reserved boy who felt out of place on the sports field, Subhas Chandra Bose grew to be a fearless and inspiring leader on the battlefield of India’s struggle for freedom. Often standing in opposition to Mahatma Gandhi, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru and other Indian National Congress front runners, Bose was at the vanguard of the ‘other’ revolutionary struggle for independence from British rule. However controversial his efforts, they were all born of one emotion – his unquestionable love for his Motherland.
His many prison sentences and equally frequent bouts of illness never subdued his spirit. A staunch nationalist, a prolific writer, a mesmerizing orator and a matchless motivator, Netaji led by example and believed that every individual must be ready to sacrifice his or her life for the country.
This book brings together the transformative incidents that shaped Netaji’s work and words, and highlights the main tenets of his life. From his devotion to India and his unflagging courage, you too can learn to be a little bit like Subhas Chandra Bose.
