Those who create history rarely have the time to record the account of their contribution to it. Despite leading an intensely hectic social and political life right from his early childhood to his alleged death on 18 August 1945, Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose has left behind for posterity voluminous accounts of his experiences as a student, as a social worker, as a philosopher, as a political prisoner, as a member and President of Indian National Congress, and as an undisputed leader of the historic Indian National Army (INA). This paper begins by tracing the influence of cult figures like Rabindranath Tagore, Sri Aurobindo, and Swami Vivekananda on Bose and discusses at length the various aspects of his life, work, and creativity that went into the making of the “Indian Pilgrim,” for whom sacrifice and suffering were pious offerings at the hallowed altar of Mother India.


Do you want the fragrance of a full-blown rose? If so, you must accept the thorns. Do you want the splendor of the smiling dawn? If so, you must live through the dark hours of the night. Do you want the joy of poverty and the solace of freedom? If so, you must pay the price. And the price of liberty is suffering and sacrifice. – Subhas Chandra Bose (Toye 1991, 55)
