Use of the English Language by Subhas Chandra Bose: A Study of Three of his Speeches

Indian orators in English since the nineteenth century have been using the English language to address a cosmopolitan gathering; in spite of English language being the colonizer’s language, it has functioned effectively to construct an Indian identity and to voice nationalist aspirations. Freedom fighters of the early twentieth century in India gave voice to the spirit of nationalism, each in their own way and each representing a phase of the evolving nationalistic consciousness. The writings of Nehru have been discussed in almost all the literary history of Indian writing in English. But it is a pity that Subhas Bose has been ignored by almost all the literary historians of Indian Writing in English although his complete works extend to several volumes.
