Late Krishna Bose (1930-2020) was an educator, writer, and politician. A professor of English in Calcutta from 1955 to 1995, she was elected Member of Parliament (Lok Sabha) three times starting in 1996 from the Jadavpur constituency in Greater Calcutta. From 1999 to 2004, she chaired the parliamentary standing committee on external affairs. Krishna Bose was an eminent expert on Netaji's life and struggles. After her marriage to Sisir Bose, son of Sarat Chandra Bose, the barrister, and nationalist leader who was his younger brother Subhas's closest comrade, she joined Sisir's efforts to research and document Netaji's life and work. Aged twenty, Krishna's prolific writings include several original books on Netaji.
