From the pages of the past

By Shekhar Dey

Jamshedpur, In the name of God I take this social oath that to Liberate India and the 38 Crores of Countrymen I Subhash Chandra Bose will continue the sacred was of freedom till the last breath of my life.” That is, I promise by taking the blessings of God Subhash Chandra Bose that I will die by liberating my country and its 38 crore people and will continue the fight for this freedom till my last breath”….. Singapore in 1943 The announcement of the Central Hall which is known all over the world as Proclamation of the Provisional Government of Azad Hind. When Subhash Chandra Bose read it in front of the representatives of the whole world, many times his throat was suffocated while reading and his eyes became moist. By this announcement, he had announced the provisional government of India at that time itself. At that time, Japan announced the recognition of this government, later countries like Italy, China, Burma, Thailand, Croatia and Philippines also gave their support to them.

How holy and historic was the day of 30 December 1943 when Subhash Chandra Bose unfurled his beloved tricolor on that land of Andaman and Nicobar Islands. Then these islands were under the control of Japan. The date was December 29, 1943. In front of Port Blair, the capital of the said archipelago, there was an order from the High Command of the leader of the President to make preparations worthy of the honor of a President. There was news that the first head of state of the first independent government of a great country is about to come. The islanders were confused as to which head of state of which country was going to come. By the end of the evening, everyone came to know officially that Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose was going to come to Andaman and Nicobar to declare independence and assume power. In this happiness, people were congratulating each other. Such a wave of joy and happiness arose all around, in front of which even the high waves of the sea became small.

On the same day, the dreamer Subhash Chandra Bose gave a new Indian name to both the islands with great enthusiasm. “Shaheed Dweep” and “Swaraj Dweep”. But, in the whirlpool of politics, both these names got lost somewhere and the then politicians and officials did not even consider it necessary to add those golden pages in the history of the country.

If we had attained freedom today by following the path that Subhash Chandra Bose had chosen for the independence of the country, then we would have had a true and complete right over it. History is full of examples. Kamalpasha did not make any agreement for the independence of Turkey and Gariboldi, but struggled to snatch their independence from them. If we all do not make any compromise for the freedom of our motherland, then we will not accept this begging freedom. Subhash had said that by burning in the fire of hunger, thirst and death, we will snatch our freedom from the British. If we were heated like this, we would have proved to be true. At present, we do not even have to see the character degradation and blind age that is prevalent in the country and society.

The happiness gained by violating moral values ​​or population does not really hurt as much as that achieved by good character and firmness of thought. To remember those things in the buried pages of history on this day is really to pay respect to Subhash Chandra Bose’s firm ideology and fair politics. Jai Hind
