Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose,

Born on twenty-third January,

A great inspiring leader,

The greatest patriot of our country.

He formed the Azad Hind Fauj

Or the Indian National Army,

Left the Congress party,

With difference of opinions

With Gandhiji.

Netaji roused the words –

‘Give me blood and

I will give you freedom’,

Awoke the youth of India,

Instilled into them

The fire of nationalism.

Chalo Dilli and Jai Hind,

Netaji shouted the slogans,

We’ll remember you, Netaji,

Every year always and again.
