The 125th birth anniversary of freedom fighter Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose was celebrated by the Central Government. Prime Minister Narendra Modi also unveiled a statue of Bose hologram near the India Gate in Delhi. However, a recent letter to Netaji went viral on social media.
IFS officer Parveen Kaswan posted on Twitter a letter from Bose resigning from the civil service to the government to take part in the freedom struggle. Kaswan said he wrote the letter in 1921 when he was 24 years old. Parveen Kaswan writes that Netaji is a nickname for courage and selflessness. Now, this letter has gone viral on social media.
In 1920, Bose appeared for the Civil Service Examinations and placed fourth. However, as the independence movement intensified in the country, he resigned in April 1921. He later joined the Congress and made his mark in the movement. Bose remained in Congress until 1938 when he left the party due to internal squabbles and founded the All India Forward Bloc Party in 1939.
The British government later announced that India would support them in World War II without consulting the Indian people. With this, Bose sparked a large-scale movement. Subhash Dhati was placed under house arrest by the government as he could not bear it. But .. Bose escaped and went to Germany in disguise and established the Indian National Army there and continued the movement from there.
