Bipasha Chakraborty is a 5th Semester student of Integrated Masters Degree in English at the Tripura Central University.
With an amazing eloquence and fluency, she highlighted Netaji's connection with the Northeastern Region.
Standing in front of all important dignitaries in the Central Hall, Bipasha recalled the glorious day for the country - the 14th April 1944 - which is written in the history in golden words.
She said, "It was on that day, Azad Hind Vahini hoisted Flag of Azad Bharat, for the first time, at Moirang in Manipur in the mainland of India".
Netaji and Azad Hind Fauj, after hoisting the flag made a clarion announcement that they would snatch freedom from the British rulers by valour and gallantry, Bipasha pointed out.
She also said the freedom struggle, at that time, remained limited to Delhi and other adjoining areas. But, it was the visionary Netaji, who made the North Eastern Region as the 'Azadi ka neer', she asserted.

Besides, she alongwith other selected youngsters attended an interactive programme with Prime Minister Narendra Modi at his residence at 7, Lok Kalyan Marg.
The youngsters were selected under the ‘Know Your Leader’ programme to participate in the ceremony to honour Netaji today.
