On Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose’s birthday, once again the whole nation is bowing to him. Netaji’s contribution to India’s freedom struggle will never be forgotten. He will be remembered as one of the heroes of freedom who did not get the credit for his share as much as it should. It is very difficult to mention Netaji and not to mention Japan. Japan is the country that gave Netaji’s dream of independence. Let us tell you the connection between Netaji and Japan that people here never forget.
There is a place called Suginami Ward in the Wada district of Tokyo, the capital of Japan, and there is a Renkoji Temple. The weekend can always be seen in this temple. It is said that this is the place where the ashes of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose were found. It is believed that Netaji died in a plane crash on 18 August 1945. This temple was established in 1594 and is a sacred place for the Niranihan followers of Buddhism. Japan still today considers Netaji one of the least popular heroes of modern India.
Came to Tokyo in 1943
According to an article in Japan Times, Netaji fought a whole life against British rule. In such a situation, when he disappeared, the whole world was stunned. Born into a wealthy Odisha family, Netaji came from a very educated family. After passing the civil service examination, Netaji had thrown himself into the fight for freedom instead of leading a comfortable life. Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose reached Tokyo on June 1943. Here he had a meeting with the then Japanese PM Tojo. Tojo promised Netaji all possible help needed for India’s independence.
Campaign started from Japan
On October 1943, Netaji blew the trumpet of India’s independence in Japan and it was considered the first of independence. In 1944, Bose sent soldiers of the Indian National Army (INA) to fight against the British along with the soldiers of Japan. The mission of Bose’s INA for India’s independence did not find a place in his country, but Japan always gave him the highest status. According to the Japan Times, Netaji is such a great personality for the people of Japan, who inspires him in many ways.
