2018-19 UW Tacoma Fulbright Scholars
Subhas Chandra Bose, in contrast, was a founder of the Indian National Army which was allied with Japan to fight for India’s independence from Britain. Bose’s famous cry, “Give me blood and I will give you freedom!” reflects his rejection of pacifism and non-violence. Bose, in contrast to Tagore, used Pan-Asianist ideas to contest the British Raj maintaining that while the British Raj was the oppression of the white man, Japan’s colonial rule would be instrumental in “prevent[ing] the white race from exploiting” Asia.
