He was an Indian revolutionary who led an Indian national political and military force against Britain and the Western powers during World War II. Popularly known as Netaji (literally "Respected Leader"),  was one of the most prominent leaders in the Indian independence movement and is a legendary figure in India today.

 Subhash Chandra Bose was a very intelligent and sincere student  He passed his B.A. in Philosophy from the Presidency College in Calcutta.
He was strongly influenced by Swami Vivekananda's teachings and was known for his patriotic zeal as a student. He also adored Vivekananda as his spiritual Guru.
It was during this period that Subhash was drawn towards the works of Swami Vivekananda (1863-1902) as he accepted:“I was barely fifteen when Vivekananda entered my life, then there followed a revolution within.

He followed his spiritual mentor-Swami Vivekananda. Subhash Chandra Bose called Swami Vivekananda "the maker of modern India". His father wanted Netaji to become a civil servant and therefore, sent him to England to appear for the Indian Civil Service Examination. He was placed fourth with highest marks in English.
But his urge for participating in the freedom movement was intense that in April 1921,  resigned from the coveted Indian Civil Service and came back to India.

Soon, he left home to become an active member of India's independence movement.
He, later joined the Indian National Congress, and also elected as the president of the party.

During the Second World War in September, 1939, Subhash Chandra Bose decided to initiate a mass movement. He started uniting people from all over the country. There was a tremendous response to his call and the British promptly imprisoned him. In jail, he refused to accept food for around two weeks.
Although it was believed that Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose died in a plane crash, his body was never recovered. There have so many theories been put forward regarding his abrupt desertion. The government of India set up a number of committees to investigate the case and come out with truth.

The reports of Justice Mukherjee Commission, tabled in Parliament on 17 May, 2006 said, "Bose did not die in the plane crash and the ashes at Renkoji temple are not his". 

Quote From Netaji:
“One individual may die for an idea; but that idea will, after his death, incarnate itself in a thousand lives. That is how the wheel of evolution moves on and the ideas and dreams of one nation are bequeathed to the next”
