Indian History vehemently celebrates two particular days of the Year: 26th January and 15th August. One is Republic Day, wherein the coveted Indian Constitution was enforced: the other is Independence Day (when the country was liberated from prolonged colonial rule). The literature surrounding the Indian National Struggle particularly focuses on a few selected leaders such as Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, Sardar Vallabhai Patel, Dr. B.R. Ambedkar, and others. Although some texts and civil society groups categorically shift the focus on others who also have contributed to the movement, these ‘others’ have so far been overlooked and most likely forgotten due to the several private interests at stake. One such forgotten leader is Subhas Chandra Bose, often referred as Netaji by his followers. This article intends to highlight Bose’s role in Indian History and uncover his relationship with Gandhi, the Father of the Nation.
