As the country on Sunday paid rich tributes to legendary freedom fighter Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose on his 125th birth anniversary,  one proud son of Odisha, Satya Sutar, based in Singapore, celebrates the patriot’s birth anniversary in a unique way.

Sutar, who hails from Fakirpur village in Keonjhar district and is presently working as a director in a multi-national company in Singapore, paid tributes to Netaji by singing the Indian national song- Vande Mataram - at Saigon in Vietnam.

On this grand occasion, Sutar has disclosed his vivid plans to celebrate Netaji’s birthday. He will visit the nations where Netaji had travelled during the days of struggle  for freedom and pay him tribute by singing aloud the nation song in those countries.

Speaking to odishatv.in  from Singapore, Sutar said, “I left Odisha 10-12 years ago. I want to visit all those countries where Netaji went during the freedom fight against the Britishers. After fulfilling my dream, I will return to my homeland.”

Shading more lights on his plan , Sutar said, “As planned, I paid my respect to the great freedom fighter by singing national anthem at  Saigon in Vietnam today. I will go to Taiwan in 2023, Burma in 2024, Singapore in 2025 and Germany in 2026 to remember the charismatic leader.” 

Earlier in the day, President Ram Nath Kovind, PM Narendra Modi and people from all walks of life paid tributes to Netaji.

Taking to Twitter, President Kovind wrote, “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.
