The INA Tour looks at the fascinating story of the Indian National Army/Azad Hind Fauj and of its participation in the Battle of Imphal. The tour takes in key accessible sites in Manipur that are linked to the INA and the Battle of Imphal.
This tour not only covers the story of the INA during the Second World War. It also tells the story of the legacy of the INA and its leader, Subhas Chandra Bose. To many people, the INA should be given a lot more credit for India’s independence. Some also believe Netaji (Bose) lived on until well after India’s independence. Let us talk about all these on the tour.
