Professor Anita Pfaff, the only child of Subhas Chandra Bose, is coming to London to speak on the tragedy of her father's death in 1945, which still hasn't received closure, at the international launch of Ashis Ray’s book ‘Laid to rest: The controversy over Subhas Chandra Bose’s death’.
The event will take place at 10.45 am on Sunday 10 June at the Jaipur Literature Festival at the British Library. If you wish to attend, you are kindly requested to register at British Library's link https://jaipurliteraturefestival.org/britishlibrary/tickets
Following the release of the book in India, it has been fortunate enough to receive dozens of outstanding reviews. They include:
Professor Sugata Bose of Harvard University said: “Ashis has done a great service by bringing together the most relevant documents in this compilation. The weight of evidence is very, very strong.”
Former India foreign secretary, Krishnan Srinivasan asserted: “Ashis Ray’s book is a comprehensive, credible and detailed forensic document which seeks to, and does, prove conclusively that Subhas Bose died in the plane crash in Taipeh on 18 August 1945. Will this book Laid to Rest in fact be ‘The Last Word’ on the subject? It probably will. And it deserves to be.”
Professor Anton Pelinka of the Central European University in Budapest stated: “Ashis Ray’s book and his line of reasoning provide all the legitimate answers to Bose’s death. All the arguments brought forward are based on fully convincing documents.”
