Tum mujhe khoon do mein tumhein azaadi doon ga

These words were uttered by the great revolutionary of colonial time, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose.

The intention behind the statement comes from Netaji's idea that India could never get freedom through peaceful means unlike Mahatma Gandhi (Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi), whose ideology was more non-violent. He is often dubbed as an anarchist but the reality is opposite.

Gandhi was well-praised and picked by WEST because of his simplicity. His personality throughout his life is farrago of complexions and contradictions like Mohammad Bin Tughluq.

On the hand there were Bose and on the other hand there was GANDHI. The relationship between these two characters is very important. The ups and downs, chicanery talk, sardonic smile.

The two met at a Congress session in 1921. It is important to note here that Bose got through Indian Civil Services and eventually left it inspired by Nehru's rhetoric. 

Indian Civil Service with which we are unfortunately still afflicted in this country, is neither Indian, nor civil, nor a service.

The first crack took place regarding the diverse views on Simon Commission. His resonant slogan in that session still echoes in the minds of the youth of the sub-continent.

Bharat will be free. The question is when.

The fact that Bose was inspired by Bal Gangadhar Tilak (radical) and Gandhiji was into the tradition of Gopal Krishna Gokhale (moderate) became much clearer at this point of time. Nehru and Bose worked closely during these years. They were both socialistic, where as Rajaji, Rajendra Prasad and Sardar Patel were right wing

Bose praised Dandi March of Gandhi and even compared it to Napoleon's march on Paris. For the record, Gandhi himself called his march a Himalayan blunder.

In 1929, Bose announced Purne Swaraj and Gandhi upbraided him on this.

The final confrontation appeared on screen at Tripuri Session in 1939 where Gandhi summoned Bose and asked for resignation in front of Nehru. Unfortunately, Nehru and Gandhi became skeptical and wary of Bose's tactics of freedom and rising popularity among youth.

Ahimsa, the demagogue ideology of Gandhi, was very impractical and an eyewash. Bose's argument was cogent. He explained to Gandhi that what did Indians get when they helped the British in World War 1- Rowlatt Act and Jalliawala Bagh.

Gandhi was very notorious towards revolutionaries. Though all the revolutionaries first lauded Gandhi but later the romance faded away.

In 1939, Bose won the Congress presidency despite Gandhi’s opposition, who wanted to replace Bose with Sita Raviya. Seeing this unrelenting hatred, Boss resigned.

Gandhi's views on the Holocaust were:

“Hitler killed five million Jews. It is the greatest crime of our time. But the Jews should have offered themselves to the butcher’s knife. They should have thrown themselves into the sea from cliffs. As it is, they succumbed anyway in their millions.” 

Gandhi’s non-violence was selective.

In 1930, two platoons of Hindu troops refused to fire on Muslim rioters, instead breaking ranks and fraternizing with them.

Rather than supporting this non-violence, Gandhi said:

“A soldier who disobeys an order to fire breaks that oath which he has taken and renders himself guilty of criminal disobedience. I cannot ask officials and soldiers to disobey; for when I am in power I shall in all likelihood make use of the same officials and those same soldiers. If I taught them to disobey I should be afraid that they might do the same when I am in power.” – Reply to French journalist Charles Petrasch on the question of the Gahrwali Soldiers, Le Monde, 20 February 1932.

Gandhi was dilettante of his eyewash ideologies. The only weapon he had was FAST UNTO DEATH. He is often dubbed as a blackmailer who once Britishers went to the extent to say, Let him die and face the short term consequences than being blackmailed by a half-naked man all the time.
