Estimated reading time: 2 minutes

CM Himanta Biswa Sharma paid tribute to Sarat Chandra Bose on his death anniversary, acknowledging him as a legal luminary, a formidable freedom fighter, and a key figure in Subhas Chandra Bose’s struggle against colonialism. Sarat Chandra Bose, born on September 6, 1889, in Cuttack, Odisha, hailed from a distinguished family with deep roots in Bengal.

Educated at prestigious institutions like Presidency College and Scottish Church College, Sarat Bose pursued a legal career in England after being called to the bar at Lincoln’s Inn. However, his dedication to India’s freedom movement led him to abandon his legal practice and actively participate in the struggle for independence.

In his political career, Sarat Bose served as the President of the Bengal Pradesh Congress Committee in 1936 and was a member of the All India Congress Committee until 1947. He faced imprisonment for his involvement in the freedom movement and endured hardship in jails like Mercara and Coonoor.

Sarat Bose strongly advocated for the Indian National Army (INA) led by his brother, Subhas Chandra Bose, and played a pivotal role in the Quit India movement. Following Subhas Chandra Bose’s reported death in 1945, Sarat Bose took charge of providing support to the families of INA soldiers through the INA Defence and Relief Committee.

His commitment to the cause of India’s independence earned him a position in the Interim Government as a Minister for Works, Mines, and Powers from 1946 to 1947. Sarat Chandra Bose’s life was dedicated to the service of the nation, embodying the spirit of sacrifice and patriotism in the quest for India’s liberation from colonial rule.
