...an important addition to the literature on India's freedom movement and the roles in it of the formidable Bose brothers, Sarat and Subhas.
Madhuri Bose has thrown new light on aspects of India’s independence struggle. The story she tells—and the new material contained in it—will be invaluable to scholars both in India and elsewhere. It is also a reminder of the complexity of the independence movement and of the different perspectives of some of the main players.
A valuable addition to the biographical literature encompassing the crucial decades around Independence.
Netaji’s grandniece tells the story of the Bose Brothers’ contribution to India’s struggle for independence through the eyes of her father, Amiya. She relies on extensive conversations with her father over the years that have shaped her own view of the history of Indian independence. The result is an interesting insight into the experiences, perceptions and analyses from the inner circle of the Bose family.
The legend of the two shining stars of Indian patriotism, Subhas Chandra and Sarat Chandra is truer than truth itself. Madhuri Bose, a family insider, has chronicled it in a way, at once moving and charming. The inspiring legend has gained in the telling and is embellished by the first-person recollections from Amiya Nath Bose. The story unfolded in this beautiful narrative is indeed a priceless legacy of renascent India.
[The book] is a source for future historians in search of material as it relies heavily on information generated by various family members; especially the first-hand accounts of Amiya Nath Bose (nephew of Subhas Chandra Bose).
With access to diaries, notes, photographs and private correspondence, this book, written by a member of the Bose family, brings to light previously unpublished material on Netaji and Sarat Chandra Bose.
[The Author] takes the reader through the most important period of the Indian Independence Movement of the 1920s by reproducing the personal correspondence between the bose brothers…. The epilogue deals with all the principal characters of the book and its heart-rending to read some of the letters.
