When Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose’s Stand Against Racial Bias at Presidency College

Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose's presidency of the Congress Party invigorated the Students' Movement, defying skepticism from fellow Congress leaders about youth participation.

Throughout India’s fight for independence, student movements played a pivotal role in shaping the nation’s destiny. In 1916, an English professor Edward Farley Oaten’s racial biases provoked a young student. When the professor attempted to humiliate a student, the student reached a breaking point. Reacting strongly, the student physically confronted the professor, leading to serious repercussions. And that student was Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose. Bose’s expulsion after confronting Oaten left an indelible mark on his political perspective, fueling his belief in the potency of student activism.

This transformative event set the stage for Bose’s lifelong conviction that student involvement was indispensable for liberation. In 1936, the All India Students Federation (AISF) emerged as the inaugural Indian student group championing the cause of independence. Bose’s influence was evident through Ansar Harvani, a founder of AISF who shared a close bond with him.

Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose’s presidency of the Congress Party invigorated the Students’ Movement, defying skepticism from fellow Congress leaders about youth participation. He fostered connections with student leaders at both local and provincial levels.
