Gurugram: Members and students of the Society for Upliftment and Development of Human beings by Action (SUDHA) on Thursday celebrated the 123rd birth anniversary of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose.
More than 75 children of the society gathered at South City-2 to pay tributes to the freedom fighter and founder of the Indian National Army (NIA) fondly called as Netaji and remember his contribution to India’s freedom struggle.
On the occasion, students were explained about the significance of the day and the life journey of the great son of India.
At a cultural function that followed next, the students sang patriotic songs and raised popular slogans coined by Bose such as ‘Jai Hind’, ‘Give me blood, I will give you freedom’ etc. They also sang the national anthem on the occasion.
Daisy Singh, one of the volunteers at the SUDHA and a resident of South City-2, also sang patriotic songs to instil a sense of belonging to the nation among the attendees.
GK Bhatnagar, president of the SUDHA, said, “We celebrate every occasion which has great significance in the rich Indian history together. The students were taught about the importance of independence and the sacrifices made by the freedom fighters.”
