India’s biggest political mystery resolved. Sitting in a dilapidated house in a remote part of India, a 74-year-old man started narrating in his deep baritone the layout of Jessore cantonment in East Pakistan to his handful of followers. They got the import only a few weeks later when Jessore fell to the advancing Indian Army. This was in December 1971, and Subhas Chandra Bose was officially dead for 25 years. Ever since Netaji was pronounced dead following a plane crash in August 1945, Indians across the world have wondered whether the claim was true. The Government, however, decided to accept the story based on circumstantial evidence. For the first time, it is now conclusively shown that Netaji lived on. Having spent over 15 years in procuring and scouring through thousands of records from across the world, interacting with eyewitnesses and consulting experts, the authors come to a history-bending conclusion that a mostly unseen, unnamed man who lived in various parts of UP from the 1950s to 1985 was indeed Subhas Chandra Bose. From a “living” Netaji’s throwbacks about his contemporaries, his views on Constitutional issues and India’s foreign policy, to his forays into the world of paranormal and top-secret covert missions across the borders to first-ever sensational disclosure why he could not emerge in public — no other book is as bold and vast in its scope and implications. National award-winning director Srijit Mukherji’s upcoming movie “Gumnaami” is based on Conundrum.
