The family has created a similar campaign on Facebook as well.
It also reminisces how he was named after freedom fighter Subash Chandra Bose. Now, the family members hope he returns home unscathed and does not meet the fate of the leader after whom he was named.
“Subash’s father Suresh likes Subash Chandra Bose. And he named his son after the freedom fighter,” his mother Padma Suresh told a news agency.
“We are sure he will come back alive. His friends from different cities have come here to lend us the moral support,” she added.
“Subash joined the Coast Guard in 2009 and has logged around 1,500 hours of flying. He was a gold medallist in his batch,” she said.
