Vanishing of Subhash Bose is not just an anecdote on the inquiries about the disappearance of Netaji but it clearly, bravely, and frankly portrays how the magnanimous leaders, troubled by the increasing acceptance of Bose, decided to sideline him.
Rajesh Talwar has once again been brutally honest and puts forward an extensively researched and factually accurate account of the conspiracy behind the argument that Bose died in an air crash.
The author has taken the brave initiative to write down everything about the vanishing of Subhash Bose. How Gandhiji has shown bias towards Nehru over Bose is the first shocker. Second, comes when the author reveals how Jawaharlal Nehru has clandestinely kept the details under wraps. Further to hide this Indira Gandhi forms a commission who is no less than her sycophant and hence clearly a biased investigation has been done.
The attempt made by the author is commendable. The book is as exciting and thrilling as a fictional thriller. If not for the controversial matter, the book has all the possibilities of a bestseller but it is clearly visible that it is not so because most of the publishers wouldn’t want to rub the wrong side with the politicians.
