Does anybody remember that today is the birth date of a freedom fighter without whose contribution independence would have been a delayed thing? I am talking about Subhash Chandra Bose. We also know him by the name of Netaji.
He was the one to form the INA and make the British realise that freedom is the birthright of every Indian. He was the one to say GIVE ME BLOOD AND I SHALL GIVE YOU FREEDOM. But it seems the whole country is too excited about A.R.Rahman making it to the Oscars and too busy to remember that his contribution had been there to make us all free. It just shows that our memory is very weak and we do not like to remember great people and their contributions for this country. I believe, had the picture of Mahatma Gandhi not been there on Indian currency then we would have forgotten him also.
Whatever, I realize my duty as an Indian to remember Netaji and pray to lord that may we be blessed with such patriotic people every now and then.
JAI HIND, JAI NETAJI…
