A Soldier's Life

Subhas also got himself enlisted in a different kind of pursuit - University unit of the India defense force. Doctor Suresh Sarbadhikary was encouraging Indian students to be a part of this voluntary force. Subhas got trained in the disciplined army life and he thoroughly enjoyed the experience. He  got a sense of espirit de corps and a taste of the life of a soldier. He learned to fire rifles. His commanding officer was a rough army man named Gray. His unit was camped in Belgharia. As a soldier Subhas enjoyed certain privileges which were not possible for an ordinary Indian civilian. But more than that he was really happy with that life. It seemed to him that this was the life (of soldiers) that he wanted.
