Life and Times of Netaji Subhas: From Cuttack to Cambridge (1897-1921)

Adwaita P. Ganguly (Author)
Synopsis Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose is a mysterious controversial character in Indian politics-a twentieth century revolutionary whose parallel is Lenin in Soviet Russia, Mao Ze Dong in China, Ho Chi Minh in Vietnam, Fidel Castro and Che Guevara in Cuba; but his philosophy was deeply rooted in the Vedanta Philosophy of India and not in communism as expounded by Karl Marx in his Das Kapital (1885-1894) or as advocated by his followers Lenin (1870-1924) and Trotsky (1879-1940).  The Life and Times of Netaji Subhas, is a quite appropriate tribute to that great warrior whose only concern from his childhood was: 'how to liberate India from the shackles of British Imperialism'.  For his ‘single-minded devotion’ and faith in the efficacy of the ideal he cherished, he may be called Arjuna in India’s battle of Kurukshetra. The present work consists of five chapters like five acts of a play based on a close look at Subhas’s autobiography An Indian Pilgrim (1897-1920). The chapter One elaborates the central philosophy of Vedanta, as interpreted by Vivekananda-the spiritual Guru of Subhas; the Chapter Two is an interpretation of Subhas; the Chapter Two is an interpretation of Subhas's family background and early schooling; the Chapter Three delves into what happened to him when he confronted Calcutta; the chapter Four tells about his various experiences in England culminating in his resignation from the Indian Civil Service; and finally the Chapter Five is about Subhas's and finally the Chapter Five is about Subas's philosophy of life that he constructed by exploring both Indian and Western though.  According to him, "Reality.. is spirit, essence of which is love, gradually unfolding itself in an eternal play of conflicting forces and their solutions" (An Indian Pilgrim, p. 144).
