While addressing the gathering at the 125th birth anniversary of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose organised by RSS, Manipur Prant, Sarsanghchalak Mohan Bhagwat said that RSS celebrated the birth anniversary of Netaji every year across the country. However, this year’s celebration is important as it falls with the 75th year of India’s independence for which Netaji sacrificed his entire life. For this independence, Netaji raised an army and fight against the British.
It is not known whether Netaji was dead or not, he had sacrificed his entire life for the nation without any hesitation. Netaji is a symbol of courage, nationalism, dedication and selfless sacrifice. His life is an inspiration for all of us. He lived not for himself but for others and the nation. India was ruled by the British and it was a disgrace for him and fought for full independence, the Sarsanghchalak said.
We could not be Netaji, we could try to become like him this would benefit the individual, nation and all. Always the nation needs a person like him for development and growth. Following his vision and instilling the spirit of nationalism, unity and sacrifice would be the real remembrance and tribute to Netaji, the Sarsanghchalak said.
The Sarsanghchalak is in Manipur on a four-day visit for karyakarta baithak. Family members of war heroes Moirang Koireng and HemanNilamani were also present during the celebration and paid their tribute to the portrait of Netaji.
