Subhas Chandra Bose is popularly known as 'Netaji'. In the year of 1902, when he was only 5 year old, he got admission in Cuttack Protestant School and then he started his educational career. In the year of 1909 he got admission in Ravenshaw Collegiate School, Cuttack. In 1913, he started his higher secondary educational academic career in Presidency College, Calcutta. On 21st October 1943, Netaji formed the Indian National Army (I.N.A). Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose is remembered for his Salutation and slogan of 'Jai Hind'. The famous words of Subash Chandra Bose "Give me blood, I will give you freedom" encouraged the freedom fighters. The famous book “The Indian Struggle” was written by him. Scientific propaganda was prescribed by him on the above lines to combat communalism. Shah Nawaz Khan said that, for Subhas there were no religious or provincial differences. Hindu, Muslim and Sikh soldiers in the Indian National Army were made to realise that they were sons of the same motherland. That most of ardent supporters and admirers of Netaji were found to be Muslims. Another close associate of Netaji, S.A. Ayar said that, communal harmony of a high order prevailed among the ranks. Accordingly some suggest that Bose's alliance with the Axis power during the world war was based on more than just pragmatism, and that Bose was a militant nationalist, though not a Nazi, nor a Fascis. Netaji supported empowerment of women, secularism and other democratic ideas.
