Born on January 23, 1897, Subhash Chandra Bose’s nationalism and iconic call for liberty made him a hero and earned him an inexhaustible reputation. He was an active part of the youth wing of the Indian National Congress before becoming the Congress President back in 1938.

In the late 1920s, he led the young, radical wing of the Indian National Congress. In 1938, he became the president of the party.
