Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose’s slogan- "Give me blood, and I shall give you freedom!" once instilled zeal to fight for independence. On the occasion of his 125th birth anniversary, rich tributes were paid to the legendary freedom fighter across the country on Sunday.

A series of programmes were organised at Netaji’s birthplace museum in Cuttack amidst strict observance of the Covid-19 protocols. Netaji was born in Cuttack on January 23, 1897. His ancestral home, the Janakinath Bhawan at Odia Bazar in the city has already been converted into a museum and is now called as the Netaji birth place museum.

Since early morning on Sunday, people from all walks of life thronged the birth place museum to pay homage to the legendary son of the soil. From garlanding his statute to remembering his ideologies, ‘Netaji Amar Rahe’ chants reverberated throughout.

A special exhibition, showcasing different idols of Netaji Subhas Bose made from clay, wood and other items by Odisha Lalit Kala Academy was also organised on the occasion.

Earlier, President Ram Nath Kovind paid tributes to Netaji on his birth anniversary. He tweeted, “India gratefully pays homage to Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose on his 125th birth anniversary. The daring steps that he took to fulfill his fierce commitment to the idea of a free India — Azad Hind — make him a national icon. His ideals and sacrifice will forever inspire every Indian.”

“I bow to Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose on his Jayanti. Every Indian is proud of his monumental contribution to our nation,” tweeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi.



On the occasion of Netaji Jayanti, noted international sand artist, Sudarsan Pattnaik came up with 7-ft height sand replica of India Gate with Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose at Puri beach.
