Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose was a great freedom fighter who served India as a valiant warrior and raised the first Indian National Army (INA), Azad Hind Fauj in 1943. He started an armed coup that inspired thousands of Indian youngsters to join the struggle for independence from the British colonial rule.
