Subhas Chandra Bosethe Sun Yat-sen of India!!

There are so many amazing similarities between the careers of Subhas Chandra Bose (Nataji: Great Leader) and Sun Yat-sen of China. Both men attended Christian schools, both men were highly intelligent and loved their countries passionately, both men suffered greatly for the cause of freedom, both men were betrayed by close friends, and finally both men were assassinated by the British Secret Service.

The careers of these 2 great champions of liberty are remarkably similar.

Both men hated oppression and dedicated their entire lives to the cause of freedom.

Both men were betrayed by Judas Iscariot type "friends."

Subhas began his education at the age of 5 in a Christian school run by British missionaries:

It was no wonder, then, that Subhas looked forward to going to school just before his fifth birthday, in January 1902. His parents had chosen to send him to the Protestant European ("P.E") School, run by the Baptist Mission. The P.E. School was primarily designed for European and Anglo-Indian boys and girls, but the Bose children formed part of the 15 percent minority of Indians who enrolled in it. Subhas and his classmates "loved" their teacher Miss Sarah Lawrence, while liking, tolerating, or hating a range of other teachers. The Latin declensions–bonus, bona, bonum–were taught early, and daily Bible lessons involved the boring routine of memorizing passages from the sacred text. The children gained a solid grounding in the English language, but no Indian language was taught. British history and geography became part of the mental world of the young Subhas. The curriculum aimed, as he remembered later, "to make us as English in our mental makeup as possible." (Bose, His Majesty's Opponent, pp. 19-20).

Many of the British missionaries were spies, and he came to associate Christianity with British imperialism and colonialism. Unfortunately, he was never "born again" like Sun Yat-sen, but he became a disciple of British Secret Service agent Swami Vivekananda.

Subhas Chandra Bose associated Christianity with British imperialism so he rejected the Gospel and became a disciple of guru Swami Vivekananda.

It turns out that Swami Vivekananda was himself a British Secret Service agent!!

In 1893, Swami was sent to the United States of Israel to convert our country to Hinduism!!

Both Sun Yat-sen and Subhas spent many years as exiles for their political views. Subhas was arrested by the British on July 2, 1940. In January 1941, he was released under house arrest after going on a hunger strike. On January 17, just before his trial for sedition, he escaped the country and headed for Russia via Afghanistan:

For the next three days they sought access to the Russian Embassy. This was not easy. In Kabul they had no friends, nor was Bhagat Ram's Pushto of much use, for most people spoke Persian. Furthermore, at any moment the hue and cry might be raised in India. All must be done discreetly, they must attract no attention: any Indian might be a British agent, any Afghan a member of the C.I.D. The embassies were under guard: they could find no way to the Russian envoy and when they stopped his car in the street they could not sufficiently explain themselves. The squalid lodging and his own dumb disguise, the meagre filthy clothing, the icy weather, began to have their effect on Bose. There could be no going back, only frustration awaited him in India: but somehow, at any cost, he must leave this unfriendly country. On the fifth day, "in sheer desperation," he sent Bhagat Ram to the Italian Legation. Here there were welcoming smiles, congratulations, and the promise of a passport. (Toye, The Springing Tiger, p. 58).

Having obtained an Italian passport, Subhas was able to visit Italy and Germany. In April 1941, Subhas unexpectedly arrived in Berlin. He was under no illusion about Hitler but he had nowhere else to turn.

Hitler finally met Bose on May 27, 1942.

Hitler was alarmed when Subhas Chandra Bose showed up in Berlin in April 1941, requesting help in liberating India from the British.

His visit threatened to blow Hitler's cover as an MI6 agent if no help was forthcoming!!

Hitler was a great admirer of the British Empire and he wanted to rape Russia like the British raped India....After the Great Dictator starring his look-alike Charlie Chaplin, Hitler's second favorite movie was Tales of a Bengal Lancer starring Gary Cooper. That movie was required viewing for all his fellow British SS spies.

Hitler kept him waiting for over a year, and when they finally met, the encounter was fruitless:

On May 27, 1942, Bose had an audience with the führer. In response to his request for more substantive support, Hitler launched into an interminable lecture, the essence of which was that he could do nothing. Bose then asked him to repudiate passages in Mein Kampf that were contemptuous of Indians. That prompted another monologue–ending with the assertion that Indian natives would take one or two centuries merely to achieve unity among different factions. By the time the interview was over, any illusions that Bose had entertained about the führer's rationality were gone. He told colleagues that Hitler reminded him of the Fakir of Ipi, a Pakhtun warlord he had met on his trek to Kabul, "with whom it was practically impossible to have a discussion on any topic even for a few minutes." All that Bose got out of the long awaited meeting was a cigarette case. (Mukerjee, Churchill's Secret War, pp.176-177).

The meeting was conducted in English, as Bose and Hitler both spoke that language fluently.

Bose spent 2 wasted years in Berlin. After consulting Churchill, Hitler made arrangements for him to be sent back to India by submarine–the most hazardous route possible....Finally, on February 9, 1943, he left via submarine, and after a very, very perilous voyage he surfaced in Sumatra on May 6, 1943.

Subhas Chandra Bose was assassinated on August 18, 1945

After a very perilous 3 month voyage via submarine, Subhas Chandra Bose arrived in Singapore in June 1943. At that time Singapore was under Japanese control.

Without any military experience whatsoever, Bose immediately set out to form an army for the liberation of India.

His only motivation was freedom for his country from British oppression.

On July 5, 1943, Bose reviewed his army and gave a rousing speech:

The following day, July 5, at 10:30 in the morning, Bose appeared in military uniform to address India's army of liberation. Some twelve thousand soldiers had gathered on the expanse of green in front of Singapore's municipal building. He insisted that this army had been formed and would go into battle entirely under Indian leadership. He gave this Azad Hind Fauj ("Free India Army") their battle cry: "Chalo elhi!" ("Onward to Delhi!"). "For an enslaved people," he said with emotion, "there can be no greater pride, no higher honor, than to be the first soldier in the army of liberation." He promised his troops that he would be with them "in darkness and in sunshine, in sorrow and in joy, in suffering and in victory." The soldiers responded with shouts of "Long live revolution!" and cries of victory to Mahatma Gandhi and Subhas Chandra Bose. "For the present," their leader warned them, "I offer you nothing except hunger, thirst, privation, forced marches and death. But if you follow me in life and in death–as I am confident you will–I shall lead you to victory and freedom." (Bose, His Majesty's Opponent, p. 245).

As the prospects of an Allied victory grew greater, the prospects of Indian independence grew less and less.

At 2:30 pm, on August 18, about 8 people boarded a Mitsubishi plane at Taipei Airpot, capital of present day Taiwan, bound for Tokyo. Soon after takeoff, a tremendous explosion destroyed the propellor and the port engine. The plane impacted the ground at over 300 mph.

Immediately after takeoff, the plane was literally blown out of the sky.

Miraculously, there was a survivor, Bose' "traveling companion" named Habibur Rahman.

Rahman had Bose quickly cremated and his ashes were flown to Tokyo.

The only other Indian on the plane was an INA officer named Habibur Rahman. How anybody survived that plane wreck is indeed a miracle.

Habibur Rahman was the Judas or Morris "Two Gun" Cohen of India.

He was the only survivor of the "crash."

According to his report, Bose died from burns soon afterward in the hospital, and Rahman had him cremated, and his ashes flown to a Tokyo Buddhist temple.

When India was partitioned, Rahman went on to fight against India during the first Indo-Pakistani War of 1947.

Lord Mountbatten of Burma "Mountbottom" was the Supreme Allied Commander in South East Asia.

Field Marshall Auchinclek was Commander-in-Chief, India.

Both men were deadly foes of Indian independence as embodied in Nataji Subhas Chandra Bose.

The complex operation to eliminate Bose was overseen by those 2 men.

After the war, both men worked to dismember India which led to the creation of 3 countries.

Subhas Chandra Bose would never have agreed to the partition of India!!

However Subhas Chandra Bose actually died, it is certain that he would never have agreed to the partition of India into rival countries. The British desperately needed a base to attack Russia and that is why they were so eager to partition India.

After the partition of India in 1947, a further partition took place in 1971 with the creation of Bangladesh. More countries mean more wars and wasteful military expenditures which could be used to improve the lives of the people. The dream of Subhas Chandra Bose for a united and FREE India has not yet been realized.
