Janmitr Felicitates Shri Shital Tiwari, living 96 years Thailand veteran of Indian National Army (INA)

New Delhi [India], April 19: Mr Shital Tiwari, aged 96 years and the only living veteran from Thailand of Indian National Army (INA, formed by Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, currently on a 10 day visit to India, was honored in a felicitation program, organized by JanMitr, an initiative and concept for welfare and development of rural community with a view to make them employable and self-reliant entrepreneurs.

Mr Shital Tiwari’s father Mr Baiyanath Tiwari donated his land of over 20 acres in Chonubari Province of Thailand to Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose in 1943 for setting up INA Training Camp when he visited Thailand in his pursuit to raise INA and secure freedom for India. The entire family, Mr Shital Tiwari and his siblings and father were actively involved with Netaji in India’s freedom struggle from Thailand.

Currently Mr. Shitlal is the last man alive from Thailand INA. Mr. Shital is the last witness to this INA formation and the activities at the Thai INA camp from the start to the end. He is the live version of the living history. Much of the INA events in Thailand can be recited by him until this day. His mind and body are still sharp and healthy and it is but utmost important to gather all the information from him and listen to many stories first hand. Where else can one ever find this opportunity which relates deeply to the Indian freedom struggle?

The Program was chaired by Lt General M M Lakhera (Retd), PVSM, AVSM, VSM, former Governor of Puducherry, Mizoram and Andman and Nicobar and currently chairman of JanMitr Samudaay.  The Program was also attended amongst others by Lt Gen AKS Chandele (Retd), PVSM, AVSM; Colonel T P Tyagi (Retd), Veer Chakra, President Rashtriya Sainik Sanstha: Mr Rajendra Pandey, a prominent business leader of Thailand whose forefathers were also associated with Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose; and Major Sushil Goel(Retd), CMD of P C Training Institute Limited, an Institution in education, skills training and healthcare services and initiator of the concept of JanMitr.

Mr Rajendra Pandey, the business leader, spoke about many unsung and unknown heroes of the freedom struggle who were residing in Thailand and other countries and made sacrifices for India’s freedom and provided active support to Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, when he visited Thailand and other East Asian countries in his pursuit to raise Indian National Army (INA) to fight for India’s freedom from British rule. He also shared some of the very rare photographs collected by him of Netaji’s visit to Thailand and his meetings with people in power to garner support for his struggle for India’s freedom.

Mr Shital Tiwari shared stories of self and his family’s association with Netaji and contribution made by his parents to the cause of India’s freedom.
