Born to advocate Janakinath Bose in Odisha’s Cuttack on January 23, 1897, Netaji went on to play a key role in the country’s freedom movement. He is also known for establishing the Azad Hind Fauj.

This is noteworthy that the Centre in 2021 had declared that Netaji’s birth anniversary will be celebrated as ‘Parakram Diwas’ every year. The government had also announced that Netaji’s birth anniversary that falls on January 23 would mark the start of Republic Day celebrations instead of a day later.
