23rd January: Parakram Diwas 2023

Parakram Diwas is celebrated on January 23 to commemorate the birth anniversary of freedom fighter Subhas Chandra Bose. This year marks the 126th birth anniversary of Bose, fondly known as ‘Netaji’.

To mark the occasion, 21 unnamed islands of Andaman and Nicobar will be named after Param Veer Chakra awardees. A model of the National Memorial dedicated to Netaji which will be built on Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose Dweep will also be unveiled soon.
