Mr. Sunil Kothari (A Well known Philanthropist)

Addressing the honourable officials of the Embassy of India, delegates of Akhil Bharatiya Itihas Yojna Bharat, members of families of the Indian National Army (Azad Hind Fauj) in Thailand, delegation from India, representatives of all visiting institutions and all other guests present to commemorate 80th Year of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose’s 1st visit to Thailand on October 16, 2022, Shri Sunil Kothari Ji warmly welcomed them all on “Retrospection of Legacy of INA & Netaji in Thailand”.

In his address to them, he spoke about the greatness of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose and his significant contribution towards the independent India we freely dwell in today. He spoke of Netaji’s valour, courage, self-control even under adverse circumstances instilling unwavering faith among people under his leadership. Netaji’s eloquent voice had the power to move thousands of people in the country and abroad to lay down their lives for their motherland. In the minds of his countrymen, Netaji stirred a wave of self-respect and courage and the dream of seeing an independent India lit up in the people’s eyes.

The path on which Netaji was fearlessly treading with determination to free Mother India completely from the slavery of the British was not at all an easy task and called for numerous sacrifices. Sunil Kothari Ji praised Netaji for his selflessness and courage and saluted this revolutionary for sacrificing his life and everything for the freedom of Azad Bharat.

Kothari Ji further added how due to subsequent adverse circumstances at the time of independence, many truths of Netaji’s life could not be revealed to us. His struggle, sacrifices and many tales of greatness were buried in the pit.
History is the account of past events, he said, and without knowing the correct history, we cannot ride the present. In explanation of this, Shri Sunil Kothari Ji brought forward an example assuming that when one is sick, one goes to the doctor; the doctor asks the patient’s medical history to root out the disease so that the disease can be effectively treated. If one does not reveal one’s correct history to the doctor, one may not receive the right treatment. This is why correct knowledge of history becomes utmost necessary.

Kothari Ji went on to say that present amongst them are some historians from India who are working intensively in this direction so that the unknown facts and information related to Netaji’s life can be revealed to all. Wishing them immense success in their work, Shri Sunil Kothari Ji stressed on how fortunate it was to have amongst them the presence of members of the families of those who had actively supported Netaji in all his pursuits from the formation of Azad Hind Fauj and Bal Sena in Thailand. Even in the odd circumstances of that time, only a true patriot could have stood by Netaji to support him in his great courageous endeavours. On account of this, Kothari Ji went on saying that with great respect he salutes all of their family members present at the event and thank them all from the bottom of his heart.

Shri Sunil Kothari Ji finally concluded his speech by mentioning that the life of great men is a constant source of inspiration for all and the day when the entire truths of Netaji’s life will be highlighted and revealed to the people, we will consider it to be our true service and tribute in the true sense to this great hero of all times.
