Saigon: At a time when India is remembering Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose on his 125th birth anniversary today, a youth from Odisha paid rich tributes to Netaji at Saigon in Vietnam. The youth, Satya Sutar from Fakirpur village of Keonjahr district, sang the national song and offered tributes to Netaji at Saigon street.
Sutar, who has been working as a Director at a multinational company in Singapore, aims to visit the places every year where Netaji launched his Azad Hind Fauj movement to free India from the British rule. He plans to visit Taiwan in 2023, Burma in 2024, Singapore 2025 and Germany in 2026.
Today, Sutar dressed as a member of the Azad Hind Fauz and offered floral tributes to Netaji in Saigon. He sang ‘Vande Matram’ and shouted ‘Jai Hind’ slogan.
Born and brought up in Odisha’s Cuttack, Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose is a pride of our history. Netaji has been inspiring the youth of India for years and will continue to do so with his leadership and patriotism.
His association with the oldest town and the then capital of Odisha is clearly evident with him reminiscing about 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 migrated to Cuttack in 1880s and established himself there as a lawyer.
