S.K. Bose (Author)
S.K. Bose was born in 1939 in Assam, India. While serving his employer, the State Bank of India, he was requested to conduct coin exhibitions at different centres, titled â€˜Story of Moneyâ€™. This re-ignited his childhood fascination for history, historical structures and antique collection which is time translated to a passion to study of coins from North East India. He is now associated with several organizations at the national level devoted to history and numismatics. He has to his credit more than fifty research papers and three books prior to this one.
