If Mahatma Gandhi is our Father of the nation, Pandit Jawaharlal is Cha-cha(uncle) of our nation and Indira Gandhi is Annai(mother) of our nation, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose is the COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF our nation. If you look at all the freedom fighters and the Struggle for Indian freedom, we have had many staunch Patriots, administrators, proponents of non-violence. Subash Chandra Bose raised an army to fight for Independence, formed allies with Japan to get military support. Many picture and stamps issued about Subhash Chandra Bose depicts him in a military uniform.
