Saigon: As India remembers Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose on his 125th birthday today, a youth from Odisha paid rich tributes to Netaji in Saigon, Vietnam. The youth, Satya Sutar from Fakirpur village of Keonjahr district, sang the national song and paid tribute to Netaji on Saigon Street.
Sutar, who worked as a manager in a multinational company in Singapore, aims to annually visit the places where Netaji launched his Azad Hind Fauj movement to liberate India from British rule. He plans to visit Taiwan in 2023, Myanmar in 2024, Singapore in 2025 and Germany in 2026.
Today Sutar dressed as a member of Azad Hind Fauz and offered floral tributes to Netaji in Saigon. He sang “Vande Matram” and shouted the slogan “Jai Hind”.
Born and raised in Odisha’s Cuttack, Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose is a pride in our history. Netaji has been inspiring Indian youth for years and will continue to do so with his leadership and patriotism.
His association with the oldest city and then capital of Odisha is clearly evident with his recollections of his days at Ravenshaw Collegiate School in his unfinished autobiography, “An Indian Pilgrim”.
He was born on January 23, 1897, to Prabhavati Devi and Janakinath Bose, who had emigrated to Cuttack in the 1880s and established themselves there as a lawyer.
