25 MAY RASH BEHARI BOSE (1886 to 1945)
Rash Behari Bose, a revolutionary leader, was born in Subaldaha village, Bardhaman District in West Bengal on 25 May 1886. As a young man, he participated in revolutionary activities in Bengal. Even before he passed his matriculation, he mastered the technique of making crude bombs and was the mastermind behind the attempt to assassinate Lord Hardinge in Delhi on 23 December 1912. Though he managed to escape, his other accomplices were caught, tried, and executed for what came to be known as the Delhi Conspiracy Case. He then joined the Ghadar movement that aimed to attack the British army from within. This movement helped in activating an uprising in India. To evade being arrested, Bose fled to Japan in 1915. In 1942, he founded the Indian Independence League, which in 1943 gave rise to the Indian National Army (Azad Hind Fauj), led by Subhash Chandra Bose. Rash Behari Bose passed away in Tokyo on 21 January 1945.
