Welcome to Poems On Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose in English to celebrate his birth anniversary. I have written three poems in English to honor him and honor the great contributions rendered by him during freedom struggle of our country, India. His birth day falls on 23rd January. This day is celebrated as Parakram Divas in India.

Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose was a great freedom fighter. He is fondly known as ‘Netaji’. Rabindranath Tagore, first called him as ‘Netaji’.

He was born on 23rd January 1987 at Cuttack, in the state of Odisha. He was very brilliant in studies. Teachings of Bhagwat Geeta influenced him a lot and his political and ideological views were based on this book.

Netaji was a fearless patriot and a dare devil leader. He brought about a new trend and new standard of Indian nationalism. Indian nationalism became fearless, confident and global too.

I have written three poems in English with the following titles to honor and celebrate his birth day, the poems are…..

  • We Salute You Netaji
  • Patriot Of Patriots
  • Slogans Of Netaji

Please read the poems….

We salute you Netaji

We salute you Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose

We salute your intelligence and your presence of mind

It was great to see you cracking Indian Civil Services Examination in first attempt.

For your self- respect and dignity

You did not join the civil services to work under Britishers.

We salute you Netaji

A great diplomat, a great orator, a great leader you are

It’s unparalleled, you are unique in India.

You wanted self – rule “Swaraj”- complete independence

You had a radical mind

You wanted freedom at any cost

Even at the cost of arm struggle.

We salute you Netaji

Nobody can forget your valour

Nobody can forget your strategy

You created INA – Indian National Army

For the armed struggle

Secured the help of Axis Forces

To fight against the British forces.

We salute you Netaji

We salute your great aim and ambition

You dreamt for independent India

You even sacrificed your life to free India

You are a great soul

You are a great son of India

We salute you Netaji

We observe your birth day as “Parakram Divas” of India.

We salute you Netaji

We salute you.

It is very difficult to get another Netaji

Subhash Chandra Bose took the shape of Netaji

During the hardest of situations

During the freedom struggle of India.

He had a dream

He had a mission

To make India free

And bring total or full freedom.

Netaji fought internally as a team member

Wanted the help of external forces too

Above all wanted freedom and freedom.

Netaji had to show his leadership skills

His knowledge and skill of oratory helped him a lot

Lot of sacrifices he had to give

This helped others to have faith in him.

He fought against the Britishers

This automatically gave the message

“You can trust me please”

And very rightly earned the title

“Patriot of patriots”

Within short time.

Netaji had a dream

He had a mission

To make India free at any cost

And bring total or full freedom.

Subhash Chandra Bose

Fought for freedom as a freedom fighter

Fought for freedom as a freedom leader

He fought within the country with the principle of non – violence

He also became radical and wanted arm struggle

And above all wanted freedom and freedom.

Really… it is difficult to get another Netaji

Who can show such great valour

And inspire generation after generation.

Let us remember the slogans of Netaji

Please remember…..

You have to give something

If you want to get something

Please understand…..

This is the eternal law of nature.

Therefore, let us be sincere and brave enough

And learn the essence of these two slogans

“Give me blood, I shall give you freedom”.




Hope, you enjoyed the poems. In conclusion, let us know something more about Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose.
