The twenty odd years of Subhas Chandra Bose's brief political career was marked by imprisonments. Rarely he was out of prison. He was jailed eleven times, one of the highest rate among the Indian leaders. He was jailed for a total of ten years including his forced exile to Europe (had he returned to India he would have been jailed, so this period is also counted). Therefore his political life outside prison in India was of ten years. In these brief ten years he achieved what the other leaders did not even in fifty years. He made the British Government very very afraid.
