  2. In fact,my aim is not to show any disregard to Baapu or his Ahimsa.With a great respect to his decency,I like to put this question straight forward before all of you?There was no any leader in any country who was practishing ahimsa except Gandhiji in India?Yet the effect of this non-violence was really tremendous but was it so powerful that it let the flags off the british empire and pack them back?If it was really so, then what were the reasons for other countries which enjoyed freedom after second world war?

    Born on 23rd January 1897, this great Indian patriot shook the very foundations of imperial British rule. Yes, it is Subhas Chandra Bose-our great Netaji! Yet why do the Indians almost always tend to remain oblivious of his contribution? His struggle against the British colonialism seems to be very rarely acknowledged Why? Is he really the “forgotten hero”?

    What according to you is the significance of Netaji’s role in Indian independence movement? If you are an Indian, did you really remember that today is the birthday of perhaps the boldest and the most spirited leader of the freedom struggle?

    Thanks for answering.
    If u r not an Indian, and think India, and it’s legends are not important, just avoid this Q.
    Rohit, I cannot agree more with u! Indian government doesn’t even bother to show honour to this hero! & yes, in Gandhi’s own congress Bose was elected president over Gandhi’s favoured candidate, Pattabhi Sitaramayya,

Just some hours back I was watching a channel of the Indian TV and in the news there was an item; in that President Musharraf is asking for the valid proof for the particiapation of Pakistan based terrorists in the recent bomb blasts in the suburban trains at Mumbai & elsewhere. He has to find it out from his inteligence ISI to identify the group involved in these activities. Once an Indian Airlines flight was highjacked to Afghanistan and the passengers were exchanged for criminals in the dress of the clergy! They are still at very large at Pakistan and are leaders of the so called freedom movement out fits. Why they are not conducting their liberation activities inside Pakistan as there are a number of problems are felt by local Muslims themselves. Why they teach Islam to Indians in India?
