Laid To Rest : The Controversy Over Subhas Chandra Bose’s Death
Laid to Rest: The Controversy over Subhas Chandra Bose's Death is the most comprehensive
compilation of hard evidence ever presented on the still hotly-debated demise of one of the heroes of the Indian
freedom movement. It pieces together a plethora of first-hand, eye-witness accounts of the plane crash at Taipei
that resulted in Subhas Bo...se breathing his last in a Japanese military hospital, his cremation and the transfer
of his ashes to Japan, where they remain till date.
In a veritable tour de force, the book presents irrefutable, overwhelming testimonies from survivors of the
crash, people who were at Bose's bedside when he passed away, attendees at the cremation and couriers of
the mortal remains to Tokyo and ultimately to its current resting place at Renkoji temple. Indian, Japanese and
Taiwanese nationals unite to provide an unimpeachable and unanimous verdict. The publication decimates
conspiracy theories; and questions successive Indian governments for ignoring the plaintive cry of Bose's
Austrian widow and economist daughter to apply closure to a needless and never-ending controversy.
