Netaji and Patel Sr.

Netaji developed a unique bond of love with Vithalbhai Patel in Germany. He had nursed Patel and together made a joint manifesto which condemned Gandhi's decision and advocated for a more decisive leadership. According to Girija Mukherjee, biographer and journalist,  "both of them felt that the only effective way in which India’s freedom could be hastened was to make it an issue between nations so that Britain could be made to face the problem of having to seriously alter its foreign policy because of India. So convinced they were of the need of international contact that Vithalbhai Patel, who was suffering from serious ailments, left the money he possessed, in a Will, to Subhas Bose so that he might carry on anti-British campaign in foreign countries.
