Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose was not only a freedom fighter who sacrificed for the cause of free India, but a die-hard nationalist with defiant patriotism that made him an international hero, revered even by global political leaders. During World War II in 1943, Bose visited Japan to a rousing welcome, starting a new chapter in world history, asking for cooperation to help Asia and India win freedom from British imperial rule. Same year on 4th November, he met the Japanese Emperor, as his guest at the royal palace, where representatives from China, Manchuria, Thailand, Philippines and Burma were also present. 

Bose’s aim was to take India’s freedom struggle to an international level and he asked the then Japanese Government to recognize this freedom movement and his new provincial government. Subhas Chandra Bose was declared as the most suitable leader to represent 100 million Indians. There was a call for 1000 million Asians to unite against British rule and win freedom. 

GetBengal brings you a rare video of this historic visit of Netaji to Japan.
