He had one dream, one passion, and one sole purpose in life - India's freedom. Qualifying for the prestigious Indian Civil Service for which young men hankered, he refused the ICS as an 'emblem of servitude'. 'India, our motherland' was for him 'God's beloved land', at whose altar he finally laid down his life. After his eleventh and last imprisonment, he escaped to Germany and then to the Far East from where he led, with Japanese help, his Indian National Army across the borders of eastern India. But fate decided otherwise. As the British advanced to the east, the Japanese army and the INA retreated. It is believed that he died in a plane crash in Taiwan.
