Indian freedom struggle straddling on Japanese expansion during World War 2
Indian Independence from British rule on 15 August 1947 spearheaded decolonization in the post WW2 world. While Mahatma Gandhi became a global icon for the non-violence movement, Clement Attlee, the British prime minister in 1947, admitted that Gandhi’s influence upon the decision to quit India was ‘minimal’. He reportedly admitted the primary reason being erosion of loyalty to the British crown among the Indian army as a result of the activities of the Indian National Army (INA) under Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose. This exhibit details the story of the formation of the INA, its inspirations and its impact through postal history.
This brilliantly prepared exhibit by Apratim Bhattacharya, represents the Indian Freedom Struggle by Azad Hind Fauj lead by Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose. This exhibit consists of great pieces of history, touching upon the much unknown facts of Indian Freedom Struggle during World War 2
