Deshbandhu Chitranjan Das

Today is the birth anniversary of Deshbandhu Chitranjan Das, a prominent figure in the Indian Independence Struggle. 
A barrister, educated in England, he founded the. Swaraj Party in West Bengal.He plunged headlong into the Non-cooperation movement shunned the luxurious life he was used to, burning all his western clothes.He was the first mayor of Calcutta Municipal Corporation .A few years before his death he gifted his house and land to the Nation, which is now a reputed Cancer Institute bearing his name.
The high esteem in which he was held by all and sundry is borne out by the fact that so many institutions bear his name and stand as a memorial to this extraordinary patriot, freedom fighter and servant of society .
Our humble tributes to the great Son of India !
