With malice towards none, ill will to none, and without casting intentional aspersions; this is the lifetime research work based on fieldwork, armchair research work, absolute logical deductions, facts, experience and admission.  It is submitted for the degree of Doctor of Literature to any University in the world, which deems it fit.

With due apology, I earnestly appeal to all and sundry not to indulge in any legal wrangle whether criminal, libel, defamatory or civil.  Please do mind that this is a research hypothesis and in spite of the request if someone would be inconsiderate then the jurisdiction for legal matters shall be the District Court of Amravati, Maharashtra, India.


It is difficult to name the hundreds of people who helped me in the last forty-seven years. Many friends advanced monetary loans for the Ashram without grudge and did yeoman service at crucial times.

Dr. Prabhakar Wadodkar and Chadrashekhar Dandge worked with me since 1962. Dr Prabhakar participated in fieldwork and armchair research work. He did proof reading, translations, and rendering. Chandrashekhar Dandge participated in the fieldwork and liberally financed the project. Netaji knew both of them personally. Prof Ramakant Chandrakar helped in correction of script. Principal Mrs Manik Patil and Prof Mangala Joshi corrected Sanskrit script. Late Dr C.D. Deshpande, director of education of Maharashtra liberally availed leave in service for my forays. My head of the department late Prof B.K. Bidwai purposely gave Nelson’s eye to my French leave. Both were conversant with my adventure. My eldest brother late Rameshchandra looked after my family and conducted cases of Shaulmari Ashram without fees. But for him it was impossible to indulge in this project. Advocate Vijay Keole, Advocate K.H. Deshpande, senior lawyer of high court, and his son Ravi Deshpande, (now a High Court Judge), looked after legal needs. My better half Sefali and my mother encouraged me without any grudge. My father though against the project offered money from time to time. Gobind Shah, the only Bengali Ashramite is still co-operative. His support is invaluable. Advocate Mahesh Mamarde and his wife Anuradha furnished the computerized script for presentation to the Justice Mukherjee Commission of Inquiry. The commission obliged me by coming to my home to record my deposition. Vikas Adlok completed the computerization of the book form of Volume I and Alok Goenka finished Volume II. My daughter in law Swati taught me how to use a computer and is still helping me to remove the snags.  My thanks are due to persons who authored more than two hundred books and thousands of articles on the life and activities of Subhash Chandra Bose. I am thankful to those who have put about a thousand web sites and 516,000 internet pages on the life of Subhash Chandra Bose. My special thanks are to Anuj Dhar for compelling the Mukherjee Commission to  declare that there was no air crash in Taiwan in August 1945. I appreciate his efforts on www.MissionNetaji.org.


“Sorrow and suffering purify man’s heart. Weak minds see nothing worthy in the Universe save ease and happiness. The spirit advances towards the light in spite of worldly hardships. Man is but a toy in the hands of the ‘Unknown’. “
Kahlil Gibran

No one could ever fathom that Subhash Chandra Bose from childhood was a General in the army of mysticism and Shakta Sadhana. He surmounted mean and petty things in life ever seeking the magnificent and the majestic. He was a miraculous genius seeking seclusion notwithstanding war front, politics or jail for his yogic meditation and Sadhana. He gave up a life of comfort and high position to follow a life of asceticism and mysticism. There dwelt a strong desire deep within his soul which derived him from the seen to the unseen, to the philosophy and to the divine. He contemplated a theory of creation of the Universe from consciousness. He was always interested in reading the latest books and modern discoveries in science. Poetry was his heart and soul. He could recite Hindi ‘dohas’, Sanskrit ‘shlokas’ and poems in Bengali and English for hours together. His memorization was fantastic. He was an expert in dodging the Allied Intelligence. His disappearance and appearance was perennial since childhood. He chased the eternal truth and the unknown. He had implicit faith in reincarnation and Buddha’s Nirwana but unlike Buddha he believed in God. His spiritual pursuit was ceaseless. He had deep faith in the Vedas, Upanishadas, Bhagwatgita and the Bible. He believed that sorrow, suffering, fasts, and long walks purify man’s heart and mind. Weak minds see not worthy in the world and wallow in materialism. He advanced spiritually towards the divine irrespective of hardships. He emulated saints and sages and wandered afoot as a pilgrim all over India when in recluse.
