Two Extraordinary Lives -

Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose and Shri Aurobindo.

Netaji, one of India's tallest nationalist leaders, was unwavering in his pursuit of freedom for India. Gandhiji called him the 'Prince among the Patriots' and Netaji believed 'freedom is not given, it is taken'. His life is celebrated through an audio-visual presentation, narration, dance, and song.
