Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose’s birthday or Netaji Jayanti is celebrated in the light of patriotism and a breeze of love for country as ” Desh Prem Divas” on 23rd January. Bose was one of the most prominent leaders of the Indian Independence Movement. He spread the feeling of national integration, sacrifice and communal harmony among the masses.
In the course of struggle for freedom Netaji formed Azad Hind Government and led the Indian National Army. He advocated a revolutionary and violent way to protest as opposed to non-violent approach by Mahatma Gandhi.
Following the differences with Mahatma Gandhi he separated from Indian National Congress (INC) and founded his own party on 3rd May 1939 in the name of India Forward Block. The party urged the government to announce the birth anniversary as Desh Prem Divas and is celebrated throughout the country with passion.
