Freedom Fighter of the World and Most deserving Bharat Ratna lost in Oblivion,
But HE does not die because HE lives in our Hearts . Better
you read and conclude yourself:
“Future generations will read the amazing story of Netaji’s life - his fearless courage, his venerable renunciation, his sufferings and sacrifice- with pride and reverence.” But, are we ready to re-write the history of India’s freedom? If real story becomes public, many revered leaders of India would be exposed. Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose is a name that glitters with glory in the history of freedom movements of the world. He emerged as an outstanding leader, not of a nation or two but of the whole Asian continent, who first resigned from ICS, the topmost service in India those days; rose to the topmost political position in India (Congress President); then moved from one corner to other in Europe as well as in Asia during the flames of second World War; established a Provisional Government of Free India and built an army of more than 50000 men, then Asian Liberation Army of 7 Lakh, out of nothing, to fight the mighty British Empire and all imperialist powers of the world. There is no parallel leader in the world history who interacted/met and influenced so many top leaders of his period in so many countries; situated in different parts of the world and with diverse ideologies (Gandhi, De Valera, Attlee, Mussolini, Hitler, Tojo, Stalin, Mao, Ho Chi Minh, just to name a few). He enjoyed personal relations with them.
Generations who forget their history, can not make their future. As per secret British Document of Transfer of Power, it was Netaji
who brought freedom to India and paved way to the freedom of many Asian and African countries. Mao could win Chinese Civil War not because of Stalin's support only but more because of Taolin (Netaji in Manchuria) 's support with Asian Liberation Army of 7 lakh (Mao had only 40,000 communist army by then in 1946, as part of Asian Liberation Army under Netaji urf Taolin) and Huge Stockpile of Japanese Arms in remote areas of Manchuria, known to Taolin through his Japanese friends and kept at his disposal by USSR. Who was Khilsai Malang in-prisoned in Russian Gulag of Irkutsk in Cell No 45-46 during November 1946 to September 1949? Who advised Mao on National and International issues during October 1949 till October 1954? Who was Chief Advisor to Vietminh in Vietnam War? Why Lal Bahadur Shastri was murdered after Taskent Accord by giving poison in a glass of milk by Jan Mohammad, a personal servant of T N Kaul, an Ambassador to USSR and a close relative of Nehru-Gandhi family? Why top Army Generals were going to consult Gumnami Baba in Basti (UP) during Bangla Desh War in 1971? Which Indian representative was secretly present during final Paris Peace Accord for Vietnam?
Written Indian and World History does not tell this. They talk of Gandhi, Nehru and Gandhis.
Are Indians really ready to acknowledge the contribution of one of the greatest Indian Revolutionary and Nationalist Freedom fighter of this Century who was subjected to an International conspiracy?
Are Indians really interested in knowing the true reason for Independence of India? Are Indians really ready to change history books on Independence of India?
“The greatest and lasting act of Netaji was that he abolished all distinctions of caste and class. He was an Indian first and last” Gandhiji

Did Netaji die in Plane Crash at Taihaku on 18th August 1945? Then, What happened to him? Where had he gone?
WAY as there was no PLANE CRASH . This was confirmed by Taiwan
Government as early as 1956 to a group of MPs who visited Taiwan to make inquiries in the matter and to Mr. Anuj Dhar, the writer of “Back from Dead: Inside the Subhas Bose Mystery” in 2003 through an e-mail. And MUKHERJEE COMMISSION has very categorically concluded the same after confirming it from Taiwan Government that there was no Plane Crash in and around Taiwan during 14th August to 25th October 1945.
History goes like this:
• In November 1944, while in Tokyo, Netaji put forth his alternate plan to Japanese Government that Tokyo should
act as “go between” and let him (Netaji) approach Soviet Russia saying that “After meeting Russian Ambassador (Jacob Malik), I am in perfect confidence in my success in persuading Russia to help our Independence Movement and at the same time, I am sure that I can do something to improve the relation between Japan and Russia and it might reduce the menace Japan is facing from Manchurian side.”
• On 20 November 1944, while in Tokyo, Netaji approached then Soviet Ambassador, Jacob
Malik, to seek support of Soviet Government in the freedom struggle of India stating that his activities were not against Soviet Russia. Then He put forth his plan to Japanese Government that Tokyo should act as “go between” and let him (Netaji) approach Soviet Russia: “I am in perfect confidence in my success in persuading Russia to help our Independence Movement and at the same time, I am sure that I can do
something to improve the relation between Japan and Russia and it might reduce the menace Japan is facing from Manchurian side.”
Later Netaji made a secret trip to Russia in December 1944, met Stalin and Molotov and established a center of Provisional Government of Free India at Omask under its consulate Kato-Kachu. USSR had allowed a center of Provisional Government
of Free India at Omsk in spite of being an ally to USA and UK in Second World War.
Ref: (i)WO 203/4673HS/SEAC/591 dated 19.10.1945 Public Records Office, London (ii) File INA 273 Exhibit 242, page-12
Netaji’s plan of shifting his base to Russian Territory was a well thought move, discussed thoroughly with top Japanese Army Commanders and approved by Stalin and Molotov (then Russian Foreign Minister) in 2nd week of August 1945 through Jacob
Malik (then Soviet Ambassador to Japan). • Field Marshal Count Terauchi, Commander-in-Chief Southern Command of Japanese
Quantung Army (starting from Burma, Thiland, China to Manchuria) and close relative of Emperor of Japan – Hirihito, had great respect and affection for Netaji. He instructed
General Isoda to help Netaji to reach Russian Occupied Territory in Manchuria on his (Terauchi’s) own responsibility and directed Lt. General Shidei to accompany Netaji. General Shidei, who knew Russian language and Manchurian topography very well, was going to take command of Quantung Army in order to have a peaceful surrender of Japan to Red Army.
• A secret
meeting of Netaji, Col. Habibur Rahman and Japanese Generals Isoda and
Hachaiya took place behind closed doors in the house of Shri Narain Das, former local chief of IIL, to workout details of the PLAN. The rest of the INA officials were not privy to the content or subject of that meeting. Netaji’s further plan, to reach Russia through Manchuria and declaration of plane crash to be announced later, was decided in this meeting. It was also decided that General Shidei will look after Netaji up to Dairen.
In the evening of 17th August 1945 at 5.45 PM, Netaji took leave of his Staff at Saigon Airport and boarded the Japanese Bomber Plane with General Shidei and Col. Habibur Rehman. Plane reached Dalat, Headquarter of Field Marshal Terauchi – the Supreme Commander of Japanese Quantung Army. Thus, Netaji and General Shidei were separated from others. Nobody went to Taihoku, hence there was no Plane Crash. (Taiwan Government has confirmed that there was no plane crash on Matsuyama Airport of Taihoku from
14.08.1945 to 25.10.1945.)
• On 18th August 1945, Lt. General Hikosaburo met Russian Major General Shelakor to work
out peaceful surrender modalities of Japanese Quantung Army of 7 Lakh and safe handover of Netaji.
• “So called death” of Netaji in a plane crash at Taihoku ( as decided, in advance, to be
declared after his escape to Russian territory), while Netaji was very much present in the vicinity of Saigon on 18th August 1945.
• On 19th August 1945, a meeting took place between Ho-Chi- Minh (the Famous Vietnamese Revolutionary (later Head of North Vietnam, known as ‘Uncle Ho’) and renowned Chinese General Liu-Po-Cheng at Saigon in which Netaji was also present. American Intelligence
officer and War correspondent of Chicago Tribune, Mr. Alfred Wagg and Bishop of Dalat saw Netaji in Saigon, after declared death. Mr. Wagg also took some photographs of Netaji and later met with Nehru, Gandhi, Sarat Bose and others and told that he saw Subhas at Saigon, after the news of Plane Crash.(other reference: Sunday Observer, London
• Up to 21 August 1945, Netaji stayed at Dalat, 10 miles away from Saigon, the Headquarter of Japanese Quantung Army in South East Asia with Field Marshal Terauchi. •
On 22 Aug. 1945, Japanese Quantung Army, led by General Otozo, finally, surrendered to General Alexander Varsilovsky of Russian Red Army in Manchurian Capital, Harbin, as pre-arranged plan because both Japan and USSR did not want Anglo-American entry in Manchurian Region.
On 23 August 1945, Netaji reached Dairen (Manchuria) at 1.30 p.m. from Saigon in a Japanese Bomber Plane along with General Shidei, General Otozo and Lt. General Hikosaburo. They entered Russian occupied territory ‘Mukden’ with General Shidei and others in a jeep. Netaji was received at Mukden by Russian Emissary and Kato Kachu –
the Consulate of Provisional Government of Free India at Omsk office in Russia. USSR
had allowed a center of Provisional Government of Free India at Omsk in spite of being an ally to USA and UK in Second World War.

• On 23 August 1945, Sir R. F. Mudie (Home Member of Wavell Govt.) sent a note to Sir E. M. Jenkins (PS to Viceroy Wavell) for consideration of British Cabinet on “Treatment of Bose” Ref: Transfer of Power (to India), Vol. VI, Pages 138-139 Mudie proposed: One of the most difficult questions that will confront Home Department in the near future is the treatment of Subhas Chandra Bose… Indian masses have deep admiration and respect for Subhas Bose …
Options are: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Bring him back to India and try him either for waging war or under the enemy agents ordinance. Have him tried by a court in Burma or Malaya for waging war against the king in that country. Have him tried by a military court outside India. Intern him in India. Intern him in some other British possession, e.g. Seychelles Islands
Leave him where he is and don't ask for his surrender from USSR .
I do not think that there is any chance of Bose being hanged if he is tried in India. The
pressure for his release would be too great; and also his trial would result in great publicity for his doings, motives, etc.
In many ways the easiest course would be to leave him where he is and not ask for his
release. This course would raise fewest immediate political difficulties, but the security authorities
in certain circumstances his presence in Russia would be
so dangerous as to rule it out altogether.
Yours sincerely, R.F. Mudie
On 25 October 1945, Clement Attlee, Stafford Cripps and Penthik Lawrence (Secretary of State for India) discussed above issue and decided not to ask Russia for Bose’s surrender.
On 25 Nov. 1945, Indian community in Russia had a meeting with Bose.
(Ref: British Intelligent Report- PRO.WO.203/804 from HQ Army to SACSEAI2060.ISUM No. 21)
An Asian Liberation Army was formed by Netaji with the support of Russia towards the end of 1945 and in early 1946, involving Warlords’ troops of about
15,00,000 men of former Japanese puppet Government in Manchuria (who joined Kuomintang army of Chiang-Kai-Shek after World War II and discharged under Marshal Plan). Indians, Chinese, Burmese, Indochinese, Malayans, Indonesians, Philppinese,
Siamese, present in that region, all joined this army. This army was equipped with huge stock pile of Japanese Weaponry hidden in secret depots in remote and hard to reach areas all over Manchuria which was enough to sustain 7,00,000 troops (which surrendered to USSR in August 1945) for 3-4 years. The Warlords troops had an experience and training to handle Japanese Weaponry and knew exactly where the secret depots of arms were existing in Manchuria. Later, this army helped Chinese Communist Party (CCP) under Mao-Tse-Tung in his Revolutionary War, against ChiangKai-Shek, with 5,00,000 troops, 49 Howitzers, 300 Heavy mortars, 3700 Artillery pieces, 900 Aircraft, 97 Canons, 700 Tanks, 12,000 Machine guns, several lakhs Rifles and artillery rounds. Chinese Communist Party (CCP) could succeed in Chinese Civil War only because of this help, otherwise nobody was expecting their success up to January 1946 which had not more than 50,000 men by then. This was the reason why Netaji preferred to reach Manchuria to continue his fight for India’s freedom. Netaji was planning to use this army and huge stock pile of Japanese arms to liberate India before his detention in Irkutsk Gulag towards the end of 1946.
In December 1945, Nehru received a letter from Bose in which he wrote that he was in Russia and he wished to come to India via Chitral. He asked Nehru to make arrangements for his come back. Gandhiji was also aware of this letter.
(Ref: Top Secret File No. 273/INA Document C-4, Part VI, National Archive, New Delhi and File No. 10/Misc/INA/Page 38-39 handed over to Shahanawaj Committee)
On 27 Dec. 1945, Nehru sent a letter to Clement Atlee to inform him that Shri Bose has been given shelter by Stalin. He (Atlee) should take up the matter with Stalin: Dear Mr. Attlee, I have come to know from a reliable source that Subhas Chandra Bose, your war criminal, has been allowed to enter Russian territory by Stalin. This is a clear treachery and betrayal of faith by the Russians. As Russia has been an ally of the British-Americans, it should not have been done. Please take note of it and do what you consider proper and fit. Yours sincerely, Jawaharlal Nehru • Nehru wrote Mountbatten that Subhas Bose should not be allowed to return until India
is partitioned. (Ref: Ex-Colonel of INA- Lakshami Sehgal’s interview to Mr.V. P. Saini dated 13.07.1992)
Netaji made three Radio Broadcasts on 26.12.1945, 01.01.1946 & 19.02.1946 from Radio Manchukio, Russian Territory. In his 3rd Broadcast, Netaji mentioned to come to India with the help of
Russia and with Asian Liberation Army in the early part of 1947. He also warned British not to harass his men of INA:
“… We are under the shelter of one of the great powers of the world… The battle of
freedom is not easy… We are sure to be successful within the next two years… I will go to India on the crest of a Third World War and sit in the judgment upon those who are trying my officers and my men at Red Fort…”

Trial of INA prisoners at Red Fort aroused revolt and unrest all over UNDIVIDED INDIA in Army, in Navy, in Police, in Public and in Government officials. Unrest started when people came to know the heroic deeds of INA and Netaji.
Between 21 and 26 November 1945, Calcutta was strike-bound. More than a hundred were killed or injured in police firing as many INA prisoners were secretly killed by British in Calcutta in November 1945.
Hindus and Muslims - their trucks flying both Congress and Muslim League flags—jointly took over the city, attacking American and British military establishments and shouting the slogans of freedom and nationalism coined by Netaji. Some 49 military vehicles were destroyed and 97 damaged, and about 200 military personnel injured: thirty-two Indians lost their lives and 200 were wounded. The violence soon spread along the Gangetic plain to Patna, Allahabad and Benaras and eventually places as far apart as Karachi and Bombay were affected. In January 1946, 5200 Royal Indian Air Force personnel had gone on strike to express sympathy with INA prisoners.
• • • •
Between 11 and 14 February 1946, the streets of Calcutta, Bombay and Delhi witnessed unique political demonstrations in which Hindus and Muslims forgot their differences and came together to fight the I.N.A.'s battles.
On 18 February 1946, a revolt began on HMS Talwar, a training ship of the Royal Indian(British) Navy in Bombay.
By nightfall on the 20 February 1946, virtually the whole of the Royal Indian Navy was in open rebellion. 78 warships in the various ports of India: Bombay, Karachi, Madras, Vishakhapatnam, Calcutta, Cochin, and Andamans and nearly all the shore establishments had hauled down the Union Jack. Only 10 ships and two shore establishments still remained with the British.
Between 22 and 25 February 1946, the Royal Indian Armed Forces in Bombay and Madras went on strike and on the 27 February 1946, Indian soldiers in Jabalpur followed.
In Bombay there had been, what even the British owned ‘Times of India’ was forced to call, a 'Mass Uprising’. About 6,00,000 workers from the textile mills of Bombay had gone on strike to fight with British troops in the streets and lanes of Bombay.
The British had tanks and machine-guns, the workers had improvised weapons and even at times stones from dug-up roads. In the end, 270 had died and 1,300 had been injured. Undoubtedly, a revolutionary situation had been created without any existing political leader.
• Wavell wrote in February 1946 to British Government: "… In many cities, there are Muslims who support Subhas than Jinnah …
We are sitting on a volcano that is about to erupt.”
• Sir Stafford Cripps made the position crystal clear in British Parliament: "…The Indian Army in India is not obeying the British officers. In these conditions if we have to rule India for a long time, we have to keep a permanent British army for a long time in a vast country of four hundred millions. We have no such army…" •
Such a situation existed in 1945-46 owed to Netaji Subhas Bose and his INA. A Revolution could have happened if there had been a leader prepared to lead them - Netaji Bose was needed at that time in India. The Congress had nothing to do with the entire
upsurge. Rather, Gandhi, Jinnah, Patel, Nehru and other Congress leaders deplored the revolt.
P.B. Chakraborty ( Chief Justice of Calcutta High Court, who was Acting Governor of West Bengal in India when Lord Atlee made his first (personal) visit to an Independent India and spent two days in the Governor's palace at Calcutta, asked a direct question to Mr. Atlee: “What was the real cause that had led the British to quit India in spite of winning Second World War?” In his reply Atlee said: “The principal reason was the erosion of loyalty among the Indian Army and Navy personnel to the British Crown as a result of the military activities of Netaji Subhas Bose.” Toward the end of prolonged discussion Mr. Chakraborty asked Atlee what was the extent of Gandhi's influence upon the British decision to quit India. Hearing this question, Atlee's lips became twisted in a sarcastic smile as he slowly chewed out the word, "m-i-n-i-m-a-l!"
• Gandhi, the MAHATMA and FATHER OF NATION of India, a follower of SATYA and AHIMSA and a
GREAT MAN OF CENTURIES and what not, asked help from USA to stop Netaji from returning to India: On 22 July 1946, Khurshed (Ben) Naoroji, a secretary of Mahatma Gandhi wrote a Letter to Prof.
Louis Fischer, an American journalist to prevail upon the US president for exerting pressure on UK to immediately concede freedom to India mentioning “At heart, Indian (British) Army is Sympathic with the Indian National Army (INA). If Bose comes to India with the help of Russia, neither Gandhi nor the Congress will be able to reason with the country (India)…” … If Russia declares itself an Asian country there will be no hope for European alliance with India” …
Nehru wrote Mountbatten that Subhas Bose should not be allowed to return until India is partitioned. (Ref: Ex-Colonel of INA- Lakshami Sehgal’s interview to Mr.V. P. Saini dated
On 28 August 1946, V. G. Sayadyants, a Soviet secret agent operating in Bombay was called by Nehru and handed over a secret letter for Stalin to be handed over personally to him seeking Stalin’s support.
In August 1946, Stalin and his Politbureau members (Voroshilov, Vyshinski, Mikoyan and Foreign Minister- Molotov, discussed “Should Bose be kept in Russia?”
(Ref:Alexander Kolesnikov, from a file in Paddosk Militry Archive, Russia)
During the period of August-October 1946, many documents referred that British High officials and UK Cabinet headed by Clement Atlee were discussing how Bose to be eliminated without taking recourse to judicious killing. •
Finally, both New Delhi and London agreed that best course of action will be to leave Bose in Russia itself and not bring him back to India.
• It is understood that after a lot of pressure from UK and a secret arrangement between USSR, UK and contemporary politicians of India (who were against Netaji’s return to India for ever), towards the end of 1946, Stalin ordered Netaji’s detention in a VIP Camp- in Cell No. 45-46 of Irkutsk Gulag near Baikul Lake and Ural Mountains. Indian Revolutionary Abani Mukherjee was kept in Cell No. 53 in the same Camp.

In January 1948, Dr. Radhakrishan went to Russia in a delegation to participate in philosophical
conference. Dr. Radhakrishan was allowed to meet Netaji. Netaji asked him to make
arrangements for his return to India. Mr. Radhakrishnan told this to higher-ups (Nehru) on his return. Dr. Radhakrishan was warned, not to disclose the matter and was promised the post of Vice-President and after Dr. Rajendra Prasad he was made President.
Netaji was seen in Siberia VIP camps (Irkutsk) by Zerovin in 1948, a German who knew Bose from Germany days. Zerovin told Mr. Ardendu Sarkar (a witness deposed before Mukherjee Commission)
that Bose was looked after well and was given a car and personal attendant at that time.
Zerovin asked Bose, “ What is your programme, Sir. Are you going back to India?” Bose replied, “I expect it very soon.” • In the meantime, most of the past associates of Netaji and his nears & dears were posted to high offices in India and abroad by Nehru Government. • Netaji was released from Irkutsk Gulag in Sept’1949; (Bhagwanji later said that “Stalin did not treat me like an enemy”… “In late 1949, at the onset of the Cold War and end of ‘War Criminal Trial’ this “Dead Man” left the Soviet Union… with the best memories of choicest Indian Cuisine in Kremlin. Time was not yet ripe to go to India as British Rule continued in India even after 1947.) • On 1st October 1949, Mao-Tse-Tung proclaimed People’s Republic of China. Netaji was
welcomed in Red China of Mao-Tse-Tung. On 7th October 1949, lead story in daily ‘The
Nations’ was that Government of India has definite information that Netaji is in Red China of Mao-Tse-Tung.
• In 1949, British Parliament discussed the issue of Netaji Bose being alive in China and preparing for war against British with the help of Russia and China.
On 28 Nov’1949, German News Agency “Interpress” declared Netaji’s presence
in China. (Babu Bose: The Man Behind Asian Liberation Front) • Netaji was the Chief Military Advisor to Viet-Minh Army. A division of Asian Liberation Army headed by a ‘Missing Indian General of Second World War’ (read Subhas Bose) fought shoulder to shoulder with Viet-Minh in Vietnam War. (Ref: • Muthuramalingam Thevar, a Forward Bloc leader and close associate of Netaji stayed with
Netaji in China from January to October 1950 on advice of Shri Sarat Chandra Bose and Government of India was aware of his “illegal” trip to China without passport. Shri Thever said that Netaji was present in China as head of Asian Liberation Army headquartered at Sikiang Autonomous Region of China (Tibet) on China-Assam border.
Sensational disclosure made by Robert Mac Namara, United State Defense Secretary and then by his successor Clark Clifford (United State Defense Secretary) during an International Conference in Jakarta held in May 1970)
• In 1952, Netaji had a high level meeting with Naga rebel leader Phizo near Indo• In 3 week of October 1954, Jawaharlal Nehru visited China and had secret talks with Mao-Tse-Tung and
Tibet border. (Ref: Hindustan Standard dated 2
Zhou-En-Lai on 19th October 1954.

• During 1950-54, Netaji not only advised China in internal and international affairs but also Netaji’s Asian Liberation Army helped Korean and Vietnam War efforts. It is said that Mao structured progress of China in Netaji’s way. • On 20th July 1954, Geneva Accords (USA, UK, China, USSR, France, Viet Minh
and Bao Dai, Cambodia and Laos) divided Vietnam into North and South Vietnam.
• It is understood that China was pressurized to eliminate Netaji but Mao sounded Netaji. Now, neither Imperialist Bloc Countries nor Communist Bloc Countries could be his abode.
USSR and China did not want another confrontation with USA and Western Allies after Korean and Vietnam wars.
• Keeping in view these developments in Asia and apprehending India’s fate similar to Korea
and Vietnam (another division), if he (Netaji) surfaced out in political life again, Netaji withdrew himself from political scene of the world and took SANYAS in Tibet. After sometime, he went to Nepal passing through Kailash-Mansarovar and then deciding to live OR die in his own Motherland (India) itself (rather in some foreign country), towards the end of 1954, Netaji as a ‘SANYASI’ entered India from Nepal through Nepalganj with the help of Mahadev Prasad Mishra a Sanskrit teacher working in Nepal.
• Netaji, in many names and disguises Taolin in Manchuria,
Ghilsai Malang in USSR, General Siva in Asian Liberation Front, Parda Baba/Bhagwanji/Gumnami Baba etc. etc. in India had travelled and stayed at various places in India and Abroad during 1945 to 1980’s.
• On 3rd April 1956, Mr. Muthuramalingam Thever told in a press conference “I will furnish conclusive proof that Netaji is alive, if Government of India declares publicly that Netaji’s name is not in the list of War Criminals”. • In 1956, Govindballabh Pant, the then Home Minister, officially agreed to handover Subhas Bose to the British Government as “War Criminal” if he returns
back to India in next 10 years. In 1966, the pact was renewed by Smt. Indira Gandhi. • On 25 March 1963, Bhagwanji conveyed Leela Roy “My coming out is not in country’s interest. It would not do anyone any good if I emerged now.”
Faizabad and many other places in India from 1955 to 1985 and onwards.
• On 6th July, 1983, on the occasion of re-release of Samar Guha’s book “Netaji: Dead or Alive”… Morarji Desai told in a gathering “Bose is ALIVE and has taken SANYAS”. • In 1985-86, many local newspapers published sequential story that Bhagwanji of Faizabad was, in fact,
Netaji in disguise; giving the reference of various persons those were in his touch.
• Series of secret meetings took place among senior officers of local civil administration, central intelligence agency and senior state officials.
• Listing of Bhagwanji’s belongings was done. 2673 items, in two dozen boxes, were indexed, preserved and moved to Faizabad Treasury. • Bhagwanji’s belongings included rare photographs of Netaji’s family and his past associates: hundreds of letters written by Netaji’s past associates, revolutionaries and freedom fighters. Hand written notes in English and Bengali on the margins of books and lettersmatches with Netaji’s handwriting. Lalita Bose, niece of Netaji (daughter of Suresh Bose) identified handwritings on many items/papers as her uncle’s (Subhas Bose). Besides Empire Corona typewriter; news papers and their cuttings; collections on Netaji’s Mystery; books on wide-ranging topics such as classical of Charles Dickens, Shakespeare, Sharat Chandra, Ravindranath Tagore, Omar Khayyam, Homar, Lewis Carroll, P G Wodehouse; books on India’s Partition, Russian Gulags, China War, Religion, Philosophy etc. in English, Bangala and Hindi; a magnifying glass used to read maps and 16x56 German Binocular of Netaji, AND original summons served to Shri Suresh Bose by Khosla Commission was also found there . Shri Suresh Bose
used to visit Eastern UP very frequently in his lifetime.
Crux of the Mystery
Netaji was number one enemy of Allied forces not because he fought for Indian Independence from British Yoke or he sided with Axis powers, but because he paved the way to freedom of numerous countries of the world from Imperialism and Colonization. He gave British blows after blows and slaps after
slaps in many ways.
From British angle, Netaji as a “British Indian Subject” had “waged war against his King and Emperor”. In British sense, Subhas was the top-ranking ‘International War Criminal’ who had collaborated with Axis Powers and leaders like Tojo (who was hanged as war criminal), Hitler and Mussolini. Hence this is beyond doubt that Netaji would have got maximum penalty “Death” if he was caught any time, any where. But at the same time, from legal International angle, he was a Nationalist Revolutionary fighting for the Independence of his Motherland and not for gaining wealth for him or his country. Netaji’s Second World War-alliance with Hitler, Mussolini and Tojo and Post-world war activities in Asia as a head of Asian Liberation Army made him the biggest enemy and a
sore in the eyes of British, American and other Imperialists forces and his fellow politicians in India. Netaji was not powerful as far as resources and base of political land was
American Supreme Commander Mc Aurther: “He (Subhas) has again escaped, if Subhas Chandra Bose comes again, we will loose whole of Asia.” (This is his enemy’s assessment) And that happened;
concerned, but as a strategist, he was unparallel in his time. In the words of Imperialists not only lost Asia but Africa also. Netaji created conditions, to throw mighty British Empire into dust, by inculcating freedom loving flame in the heart of all people living in British /Imperialists colonies.
Thus, Subhas Bose was a True Leader not of India, but of Asia and unparallel in World History.
Bhagwanji had confided in many, who came in his close contact, that he was not afraid of punishment he could get under the international law, but he hated the low level of politics prevailing in India and the turn India has taken after independence. He also felt that the new world order would have sought action against him, which Indians would have never allowed. Thus his appearance would create havoc to his country and sufferings to the people. Bhagwanji told Leela Roy in March 1963, “My coming out will not benefit anyone the country, the people and myself… India at this stage would not be able to stand the pressure of the World Powers. Do not disclose my whereabouts to anyone or else nation will suffer”… “My coming out is not in India’s interest”. Netaji sacrificed his whole life in the devotion of his beloved motherland. Last phase of his life as Sanyasi/Parda Baba/Gumnami Baba/Bhagwanji in spiritual oblivion was just to save India from being a battlefield of Communist forces on one side and Anglo-American forces on the other side. Only way to bring him to public life was if whole nation could have stand with him, but it was decided by Indian leaders that if Netaji reappeared in India, he will be first declared as ‘Imposter’ and if that did not work, he will be handed over to Allied powers as ‘War Criminal’. Bhagwanji expressed his deep pain in a letter to some Prasad of Calcutta: “the person you know so well, … just forget him… he has been killed by his very own near and dear ones and the entire Bengal. He has turned into a Ghost… he is Mritbhoot… strange is your government that constitutes ‘loaded dice-commissions’ over and again just to find whether he is dead or not! Now when Justice Mukherjee has clearly stated “He is hundred percent sure that Bhagwanji/Gumnami Baba/Parda Baba of Faizabad was Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose in Spiritual oblivion”, this is no more a Mystery , only People of India are deprived to know the exact information about post August 1945 life of the Greatest Revolutionary Freedom Fighter of his time, Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose. History books needs to be corrected accordingly.
How Lal Bahadur Shastri was going to give Netaji his right place in Indian History before he was assassinated by giving poison in milk at Tashkent?
Late Jagdish Kodesia, a former Delhi Congress Chief who enjoyed close personal relations with Home Minister and then Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri, appeared before GD Khosla on March 1, 1971. Kodesia told the commission and at other occasions:
"… All my knowledge is based on my political connection with the high-ups and high leaders of the country, and working as special representative of the All India Congress Committee from 1954 to 1969…"
"… Shastriji was one person who did not believe in Netaji's death in the plane crash.” "… after Shastri became the Prime Minister, he was emphatically working that there should be a fresh probe into Netaji's disappearance." Lal Bahadur Shastri as Home Minister in Nehru Govt. was well aware of the whole issue. It is said that after the death of Nehru, he personally tried to persuade Netaji, to take over the reign but 67 year-old Netaji was in no mood to come out of Sanyas, once decided to be a Sanyasi. Lal Bahadur Shastri would have adopted other methods to seek his legitimate guidance for running the country but he became an object of untimely death. Although official reason given for the death of Shastriji was a cardiac attack but no postmortem was conducted and body had turned blue. It is open secret now that Shastri was murdered by giving poison in a glass of milk bought by Shri Jan Mohammad, a personal servant of Indian Ambassador to USSR, Mr.TN Kaul. This personal servant was never questioned or interrogated by any one in the Soviet Union or in India despite his being the prime suspect. • Ex-Home Secretary, Mr. Kamal Pandey refused to share following files
