W-Death mystery of Subhash Chandra Bose-1897-1945

Described as “patriot of patriots” by Mahatma Gandhi His Words, ‘Give me blood and I shall give you freedom’ Are still ringing in the minds of each and every Indian. He stood for unqualified Freedom with the use of force Meaning quite against with Gandhi’s non-violent ways. Subhas Bose presumed to have died on 18 August 1945 On Taipei Airport in a plane crash but with no evidence. The mystery of his death and survival haunts the Indians. The inability of the three commissions to unravel the truth Spawned umpteen conspiracy theories left people in awe. First commission visited Japan in 1956 and got testimonies From army surgeons conducting blood transfusion to Bose But he succumbed to death on August 18, 1945, at Taipei. Second commission carried its probe from 1974-78 and Declared its inability to arrive on any definite conclusion. The verdict of the third commission was quite amazing It simply said Bose was dead, but didn’t die in plane crash How and when? No answer in the absence of any proof. Concluding report tabled in parliament in May 2006 Declaring that death was staged to facilitate his escape. And there are lots of evidences showing that he was alive The first being the soviet angle of Stalin and Molotov Discussing as to whether Bose should remain in the country. In 1991 a letter written by him found in the KGB archive dated 1946 that he had safely reached the then Soviet Union. And there are conspiracy theories abound on Bose’s death Allegedly both the Congress leadership and the Government Afraid of Bose’s possible return to India and his impact None to stop him to come to power as worshipped by people. He was posthumously awarded Bharat Ratna in 1992, A highest civilian award but later withdrawn on the ground As the Award committee failed to give evidence of his death. Even the Taiwan Government confirmed of no plane accident And U.S. Department of State supported the claim of Taiwan. ===================================================== Second Place win: Contest: Unsolved Mysteries by Carolyn Deveonshire *Inspired and credits to the reports published on the web*
