Born in a prominent Bengali family, Subhas had dedicated much of his younger years by being actively involved in various freedom movements in India, for ridding India of the British Imperialist rule. For this purpose he joined hands with stalwarts such as Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru and Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, but expressed his frustration, especially with Gandhi's slow and painstaking way of trying to win over the enemy with love ('Ahimsa'). It is for this reason, he decided to part ways from the Congress Party. The British became weary of him, placed him under arrest, but when he started a hunger strike unto death, they let him go, but kept him under surveillance. Subhas eluded the police, under the guise of a Pathan with an alias, 'Mohammad Ziauddin', crossed the Indian border in Afghanistan so that he could enter Russia and form an Indian independence Army to oust the British. His efforts failed, he ended up as an 'Italian diplomat', 'Orlando Mazzotta', with an office in Germany. He did manage to convince the Nazis, despite Hitler's views in 'Mein Kampf' (German for 'My Struggle') that he preferred India to remain colonized under the British. Nevertheless he was permitted to recruit Indian-born British Army P.O.W.s, and this is how the movement began. He secretly married his German secretary, Emily Schenkl, and did earn the ire of the Germans, who wanted to keep their race pure 'Aryan' or Caucasian. His efforts to take his army to India through Russia and Afghanistan were in vain as Adolf Hitler declared war on Russia ('Operation Barbarossa'). Leaving his German-based army, Subhas journeyed to Singapore via a submarine, from there he entered into an agreement with the Japanese. And it was with the help of the Japanese that he marched an army of approximately 8000 troops, both men and women, against the might of the British. It was here that he was informed that he had become the father of Anita. Then, fate again played a cruel hand, when the United States entered the war, atom-bombed Hiroshima and Nagasaki, forcing Japan to surrender unconditionally. At this point, Subhas had two alternatives: to carry on fighting against the British and their new allies, Australia and America, or just disband his army.
