Chief guest of the function, MP Shankar Lalwani, said that Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose's name is immortal in the history of India. He left the country and raised the Azad Hind Fauj that challenged the might of the British Army. He changed the thinking of the people and his dynamism gave a new direction to the freedom movement. The youth of the country should learn from Netaji's spirit and contribute to the country's construction. He appreciated the decision of the Government of India that every year this day will be celebrated as Parakram Divas.
Former advocate general Anand Mohan Mathur in his presidential address said that such great men who have sacrificed themselves for their motherland take birth in centuries. We have to bear the responsibility of making our present generation aware of the contribution of the patriots. Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose is still alive as a living inspiration as a symbol of vibrant nationalism in the hearts of Indians and will always be immortal. Mathur requested MP Lalwani to try and ensure that Netaji's birthday is declared a national holiday.
