This biography is the story of two exceptional brothers - one a well known barrister and public figure who was a dominant force to reckon with in British India and the other a revolutionary and national hero of this country who set a portion of British dominated India free before 15 August 1947, remembered and revered by the world as Netaji. The brothers - Sarat Chandra and Subhas Chandra Bose (Netaji) hailed from the Bose family of Mahinagar in West Bengal. The family has a long lineage, a rich social and political heritage and an eventful past. The author Sisir Kumar Bose – Sarat Chandra’s son and Netaji’s nephew - offers a first person account and an insider’s view of the dynamics of and the upheavals in the family during the tumultuous days of the Raj in early and mid-20th century. The rise of Sarat Chandra Bose as one of the most eminent barristers and public figures of the times has been deftly yet sensitively traced by his son, supported by priceless photographs, letters, pages from diaries and other documents from the family archives and the Netaji Research Bureau. On the 125th birth anniversary of Sarat Chandra Bose, this book is an insightful contribution to the annals of the socio-political history of pre- Independence India.
