Netaji Subash Chander Bose Remembered

The birth anniversary of Netaji Subash Chander was observed at many places in Jalandhar.

It was Indian sub-continent's bad luck that Netaji was absent at a time when tumultuous decisions like partition were being taken. With due respect to stalwarts of India's freedom struggle, Netaji could have tackled the confidence gap between Congress and Muslim League. After all till 1945 soldiers from both communities were together fighting the British under the glorious " Azad Hind Fauj". Some solution could have been found to the two nation theory.

Immediately after liberating Rangoon( Burma ) from the British, Netaji paid homage at the Mazar of the last Mughal emperor Bahadur Shah Zafar.

With full respect to the proud nation hoods of present day countries of South Asia, it would be wonderful if supreme leaders of Pakistan, India and Bangladesh, once in a year, jointly pay tribute at Rangoon at the Mazar of Bahadur Shah Zafar
