Subhash after 1945


A few years ago I came to know through News papers that some persons who were declared dead (though being alive) somehow by the authorities but when they went to claim of their being alive, they were asked to submit the documentary proof of their being alive. They could not submit any proof henceforth they remained dead in official records. After a long and lost battle they opened a club of dead persons, when those alive----but declared dead, could not prove of their being alive.

Here I am trying to unravel the mystery of death of Subhash Bose, before the deaf and dumb , his escape to Russia, than his arrest, and his re-entry to India. Then his settlement as Sanyasi (saint). Joining of his faithful soldiers as his disciples, abide by oath of secrecy to keep anonymity of their leader. How difficult and uphill task I am handling whereas the Govt. itself is against establishing him as hero of freedom movement of India. I can’t set him at his right glorious place until i am not given any co-operation by you, by remaining close associates of Subhash like Major Satya Gupta, I shall not be able to achieve my goal and shall not get any success despite my best efforts and observations. Even than I shall keep writing against injustice to his sacrifices.

Gopal Das Khosla, when he got his retirement as chief justice, the Bar council of Chandigarh, commented at his farewell ,"It would be no pleasure to the Members to give a farewell party to the retiring Chief justice Khosla." He was the man of such repute and was given such a shameful honor at his farewell. He helped the govt., to save the skin in critical times, he was assigned as head of the inquiry commission to inquire into all the facts and circumstances relating to the disappearance of Netaji in 1945 and the subsequent developments connected therewith. How could fair verdict be expected from him as he was working for GOI. Therefore leaving all the hopes from the Govt;that they will provide any clue and co-operate to disclose any facts about Subhash chandra Bose, I have decided to bring this issue in public and highlight it for the consideration and judgments. It is the PUBLIC OF INDIA, which will give its verdict.

It can’t be a co-incidence that all the three commissions of inquiry were set up to inquire into the matter to remove the mystery regarding whereabouts of Subhash Chandra Bose. The first commission was set up in April 1956, the second in July 1970 and the third in August 1999. Ministry of Home Affair’s says that it is the considered view of this Ministry not to supply the documents relating to various commissions of inquiry on disappearance of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose in Public interest more so when these relate to an event which took place more than 20 years ago.

MHA also says that the documents are so sensitive in nature that if disclosed could lead to chaos in the country and may also lead to a serious law and order problem in the country, especially in West Bengal .Thus by repeated reminders, some files/documents were not produced to the Mukarji commission .Records of the entire proceedings of the Khosla commission were not furnished. Out of 202 exhibits only 29 authenticated copies and 63 plain photocopies, aggregating 89 exhibits only were furnished by Govt. of India. Many files from PMO were destroyed and could not be traced.

First the evidences are collected from the public in the name of inquiry. Than marked with its nature as secret or top-secret and retained by PMO. After a course of time, these evidences are destroyed and can’t be accessed in future. This is a conspiracy with the public, with the admirers of Subhash and all signs to prove the presence of Subhash after 1945 have been destroyed. There will be no clue to the disappearance after a few more years in lack of evidence. The mystery of independent India shall always remain unsolved by the Government of India. 

I, Ajmer Singh Randhawa , doing my best to uncover the hidden truth right from the base of it. I have already proved from my observations that Netaji was under Soviet arrest after 1945 and after his release, he came back to India. He came back in 1959-60. On what pretext he was released is exactly not known to me but I can expect the conditions laid down before his release. All that has been explained in blog

On 24th Dec.08, I was called upon by Sh. O.P. Sharma, the president Uttrakhand Mission Netaji, Dehradun (Uttrakhand), to accompany them to interview a 92 years old ex-officer, a retired Colonel of INA. We were three persons; the third person was Sh. R. N. Sharma (W.president). We took a copy of our blog and went to meet Col. S. Pritam Singh ji at his residence in Doiwala, Dehra Dun. He was in a poor health due to old age factor but was fit enough to answer our questions. He was among the few of Netaji’s trustworthy staff to travel by air on 16th Aug.1945 from Singapore to Bangkok.

Col. Pritam Singh and Sh. R.N.Sharma

First of all I showed him the picture of Swamiji-[Netaji], (only face was shown) and asked him to recognize. This picture was taken in 1964 ,the source was not disclosed and full view was not shown to him. He recognized in first glance and all of sudden he replied,” Netaji. Yes! this was the prompt answer I was expecting but immediately he turned from the track and said,” Photo to koi bhi banaa saktaa hai.” I replied this is a real photo taken beside the dead body of the late Prime Minister Sh. J. N. Nehru in 1964. He was just stunned, speechless and could not believe. I had got the answer from one of close associate of Subhash. It was a proof that the saint in the picture is Swami Shardanand/Netaji. Subhash was alive. He came there to pay his last homage to late Prime Minister of India. The picture shows Mr. Subhash Bose as a Sanyasi, (Swami Shardanand). I again asked if Subhash had died in air-crash, How could he appear all of sudden in 1964? He replied to ask this question from Nehru and Mountbaton

“MEN MAY LIE BUT CIRCUMSTANCES DO NOT” Viewers please compare both the pictures of Subhash for the evidence of identification and send their comments.

Than I started to ask some questions from “RELATED QUESTIONNAIRS” of my blog, he did not answer any of those but how could I had him escape so easily so I asked,” OK. If the saint (swami Shardanand) was not Subhash, why all of you men from INA have joined his ashram only and became his disciples?” Here he found himself helpless and could not answer immediately. After a little pause he replied,” Due to his high spirituality.” I replied this was not a right answer. There are many saints of his cadre with high spirituality like pilot BABA , why not you INA men joined him or other so-called saints, Moreover not only you have become a disciple but all men from INA. Secondly what had motivated him that he went to Bengal from Dehra Dun to join Shaulmari Ashram as a disciple? Could not he find any other ashram in adjoining Rishikesh and Haridwar? Moreover being a Sikh i dared to ask him that Sikhs generally do not run around these sadhus because Sanyas is not permitted in Sikh religion.

He had no answer to this question. Though on the contrary, instead of answering he kept on commenting and cursing Nehru, Mountbatten and Edwina (wife of Mountbatten, he also held them responsible in cons pirating to divide India

This is the picture of Swami Shardanand of Shaulmari Ashram,(Subhash Chandra Bose ) beside the dead body of Late Prime Minister, Sh.J. N. Nehru in 1964.

Anujdhar & Co have been propagating false things like Veera Dhammvara story......So sharing these crucial pieces of info here...To be Thrown on their face :
(B) This monk is Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, without any shadow of doubt...Why are we so convinced?

ANSWER : In the month of May,1964,when the entire Nation was harping the same note,when the the issue raised to an international height,when the Govt of India was at a total loss,what could have been done to settle everything very easily?...the answer is very simple!...that so called 'Cambodian Monk' could have been brought in public this so called 'Cambodian Monk' was a V.I.P,the Govt had full knowledge about his identity,whereabouts...had that so called 'Cambodian Monk' been summoned by Govt and had this photograph been showed alongside the monk,then everybody would surely have accepted that the Monk beside Nehru was not Netaji at all but this so called 'Cambodian Monk',how long does it take to fly in that monk from any corner of the World?...24 hours, 48 hours, 1 week, 2 weeks, maximum 1 month...he arrived after 10 long years...a decade!!...during the final sessions of Khosla commission in 1974...there he made some funny comments:I was amused blah blah blah...our question is my dear Cambodian Monk,where had you been all these years?...An Entire Decade!!!

The Governments of India have been playing and will surely play a little longer...After that?
The Incident In Detail - On 28/05/1964,Netaji, along with some Buddhist Monks arrived at the Teenmurthy Bhawan(the mortal body of Nehru was kept there) on three taxis...time was approx 11am...Shri Gulzarilal Nanda was then the interim Prime Minister of India...Shri Lal Bahadur Shastri was given the responsibility to welcome/handle V.I.P Guests...From the taxi, Netaji sent an envelope to Shri Shastri and Shri Shastri came running to welcome him...Then Lal Bahadur ji and Netaji went inside the Teen Murthy Bhawan...After sometime,Shri Shastri escorted Netaji back to the taxi...After that Netaji arrived beside Nehru's body and offered a giant garland of roses as homage...Netaji also added a note to the garland in English...The note said,"Another name of Jawaharlal Nehru is courage.Let us confront the crisis of our nation for the future of India"...The note was undersigned as 'Subhas Chandra Bose'.
Now,let us discuss about the consequences of that documentary film...It gave rise to a huge uproar across the country...Not only did it shook India,waves hit beyond Indian boundary...80 Members of Parliament visited PM Shri Lalabahadur Shastri and proclaimed that the Monk was Netaji SubhasChandra Bose,without any shadow of doubt...Shastriji could not reply anything ever!...This photograph also sent a ripple in England...It was published in very important newspapers like Daily Mail,London Times etc,with a caption - 'Tell India! Who is this Swamiji!'.
Now,what did the Govt of India do?...They had been shaken to such an extent that the part of that film was totally censored...As I have earlier mentioned that the documentary film(film number-816B) has been a big headache for the Govt of India,they wanted to bury it once and for all...In that effort,a so called 'Cambodian Monk' called Veera Dhammavara (Deponent number 224)was sent to the Khosla commission in 1974 during the final session,to misguide/bluff the commission...Veera Dhammavara story turned out to be a superflop,as it should! 
 Govt. believes the assertions of Col. Pritam Singh that Swami ji was not Netaji but denies the assertion of another close associate of Subhash, Major Satya Gupta, who disclosed in press conference that Swami Shardanand ji was Netaji. He made this assertion in Feb.1962 immediately after he paid a visit to the Shaulmari ashram and met Subhash Bose as Swami Shardanad ji in his new avatar .

I believe that Maj. Satya Gupta was a true soldier. He disclosed the facts in the interest of nation. It has been 47 years since he disclosed. We are still facing difficulties to prove him right but Col. Pritam Singh is a liar. By telling a lie and shadowing the clouds of mystery on disappearance and re-appearance of Subhash Bose, he has betrayed with whole of the nation and especially hurt feelings of the admirers of Subhash Bose.

To-day, fortunately on 26-02-2009, I got another copy of a published news report of Indian express dated 01-07-2003 that an ex-principal of MVM college of Amravati had claimed that Swami Shardanand ji was indeed Netaji and this was personally admitted by Neataji (Swamiji) himself in 1976 at Dehra Dun which approves our claim. This is also a proof that Col. Pritam Singh lied to the nation. When he asked to Swamiji why he did not disclose the fact to nation, his answer was that in the age of 79 years , he was not that active boyish and ambitious Subhash. See

Mr. S S Padhye approached Khosla commission but he was not contacted whereas he could give proves. He was only willing to be questioned in-camera, to which Mr. Khosla did not respond.

Next Mr. Sengupta ,secretary to Mr. Mukarji stayed three days in Amravati to check the veracity of his claims and was told that the commission would take some time to comment but that time never came.

And he was never heard and neglected by both the commissions.

The findings of the report of Shahnawaj commission was accepted by the govt. on subject of majority of the members report of commission. Out of the three member committee, two declared death of Subhash in air-crash, one was against it. Here in Shaulmari Ashram, of the eleven witnesses examined by Justice Mukherjee, eight had said that the Swamiji was none other than Netaji. Subject of majority was not considered here in the case of Swami Shardanand ji. In lack of any reliable evidence to prove that Swami ji was Netaji, Justice Mukherjee asserted that the question of his death at Dehra Dun in 1977 does not arise. The members of commission met only Col. Pritam Singh at his residence. They completely ignored any need to go to the Ashram at 194-Rajpur Road, and to inquire from other disciples or from other key personals. In just one day it concluded the final verdict.

Despite this report it is the duty of all concerned and admirers of Netaji, it becomes more important to find the facts by observations and connecting the broken links of the chain to establish the truth. It is a right of all Indians to know exactly what happened to Netaji on and after 18th Aug. 1945. We can not believe the Govt. agencies and their reports in lack of evidence.

Col. Pritam Singh had written a letter to the Governor of Uttrakhand on 12th Nov. 2001, complaining of Ashram’s land was being forcibly grabbed by one Inder Singh, (we have the copy) who was in relation to MLA of the ruling party and he was threatening the functioning committee of Ashram, they were being terrorized by him. The help of govt. was sought in this matter urgently, that’s why the appeal was made directly to the than Governor of Uttrakhand.

In this connection a telegram was also sent by Col. Pritam Singh ji to the President, Prime-Minister and Home Minister of India on 01-11-2001, to interfere and to save the land from LAND MAFIA. In this telegram, the contents are very important. He has written,” ASHRAM SE BHARAT KE GAURAV KE PRASHTH JUDE HAIN." Means---The unfold pages of this hermitage are connected with PRIDE OF NATION.

I insisted many times to disclose this, the meanings of this line. What was that pride (the secret pride) he mentioned but every time his reply was that Swamiji was a man of high spirituality though he did not disclose the real identity.

He might not disclosed but it was already made to public by Sh. Uttam Chand Malhotra in July 1962, and earlier by Maj. Satya Gupta in a press conference at Calcutta in Feb.1962 after he met Swamiji alias Netaji and disclosed that Swami Shardanandji of Shaulmari Ashram was in fact Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. It was only indicated in telegram. (See box above).

On the basis of the complaint to hon’le president and Prime Minister of India by Col. Pritam Singh, Mr. O. P. Sharma also lodged a complaint. The District Magistrate/collector initiated the inquiry. The inquiry officer sent back the report without recording any statement of the complainant Sh. O. P. Sharma, and filed the remark that with his inquiry it does not prove and no proof of Swamiji’s being as Netaji could be found and land grabbing by one Inder Singh Khatri was found baseless. It was purchased by him from the real owners in 2001. Col. Pritam Singh denied the charges made by him and also did not commit that Swamiji /Netaji was one person. So the charges made in complaint were found baseless. No action was taken against the land grabber Inder Singh. This officer was not appointed to find the facts if Swamiji/Netaji was one person. In his opinion there was no need of any commission to probe as he himself had given the verdict. He was deployed to inquire the charges of land grabbing. Nothing else. He was not concerned if Late Swamiji was Netaji or not but he should have gone on the contents of the complaint and of allegations made within.

The three commission whatsoever declared after a long probe in diffrent countries, a police inspector did the same work in just one inquiry. The matter was closed after this and final report was submitted. What a great idea?

The meeting ended after about 2 hrs. My conclusion of this interview is that, not only Netaji made any commitment to the Govt. of India and Russia before his release and his re-entry to India, his motherland, but he also did commit on behalf of all his men from INA that no one will ever disclose his identity. They (INA men) have taken an OATH OF SECRECY before him to not to disclose that Swami Shardanand is none other than Netaji Subhash Bose. These Men from INA, are true soldiers who being abided by their oath, shall never disclose the evidence of identity of there Supreme Commander. Result whatsoever may be. No doubt they are loyal, dedicated and true soldiers. Any nation of having such dedicated soldiers, having spirit like them, the saviors of nation, would feel proud upon them and his strength of dedicated army but I am sorry to say they are loyal to Subhash only. This was also a reason they were not adjusted in Indian army after independence. The Govt. was feared, that in future they could be provoked and revolt in favor of Subhash. On the recommendation of Lord Mountbatten,and agreed by Nehru, a precondition for independence the INA soldiers were not re-inducted into the Indian Army.

INA veterans were not allowed to join the Indian Army after India's independence in August 1947 as a punishment of their loyalty to Subhash. However, a few ex-INA members, notably the most prominent members or those closely associated with Subhash bose or with the INA trials later have seen prominent public life or held important positions in independent India.

If they had been answerable to the people of this nation, it was their duty to come forward to disclose his identity and given their help to unravel the mystery as every citizen wants to know the truth. It is highly appreciable they are abide by oath but in the interest of the nation they should come forward to disclose, as all concerned leaders are no more now.

Lord Krishna also took oath before Mahabharat to not to raise weapon in war but when Arjun refused to take on the life of Bhishma Pitamah, Lord Krishna was compelled to call Sudarshan chakra for the sake of truth. Therefore I again invite the INA men to please come open heartedly and disclose the fact in the interest of the people of India, in the interest of our nation .By not disclosing the truth, they are strengthening the hands of the elements of the rivals of Subhash who also wants the same, ’Let Subhash be in isolation.’ After one or two next generations, people will forget Subhash and shall give the credit of India's struggle of freedom to the political rivals of Subhash……Gandhi and Nehru only . It was the Azad Hind Fauz or Indian National Army which crossed the dense forests from Singapore to Imphal, crossing Thailand, Burma and Assam etc. whereas Indian army in present time is still unable to cross and to control the rebels in dense forests of north-east.

A serving senior police officer (with the condition of anonymity) has provided me two news paper cuttings of HINDUSTAN TIMES dated 17-11-1970 & 23-01-1971,blasting the news, Subhash Chandra Bose met Late President of India Sh. Radhakrishnan in Moscow in 1948, where he had gone as a member of philosophical society. Dr. Radhakrishnan told to Mr. S. M. Goswami (Retd. Special Officer of the Anti-Corruption Deptt. of West Bengal), that Subhash Bose had desired him to make arrangements for his return to India.

Mr. Goswami quoted Dr. Radhakrishnan as saying," I told the high ups about this but they did not like this to be disclosed."

He also said that in replying to a question by commission chairman, Mr. G. D. Khosla, Mr. Goswami said Mrs. Vijaylaxmi Pandit,(sister of Nehru ji) former Indian ambassador of Russia had also seen Netaji in Moscow. Witness said on her return to India, Mrs. Pandit said at the constitution house that she had some important information which, "if I disclose will electrify whole India." At this stage Nehru made her sit by pulling her sari, " He said.

Full and original cuttings of news paper are pasted here:--

And in the other one, Mr. Usman Patel (Body guard of Subhash Bose),who was denied to appear before the committee by Shahnawaj discloses the conspiracy of Gandhi, Nehru, Maulana Azad and Mohammad Ali Zinnah that whenever Subhash is caught, they will handover him to British Judge for trials.

I have become able to write all this because I was the first person to visit after the death of Subhash Bose at Dehra Dun in 1977. I took the police party to that place. I was not aware of him, in his life time that the late Swami ji was Subhash Bose. Though I had met several times to Swamiji. He used to hire my taxi cab. What tricks he used to play to hide his finger prints, the wireless message from Governor of UP to deploy police, to keep the body for 10 days to pay last tributes to great leader by public, than the body draped in Tri-color and FULL STATE MILITARY HONOR was given to the departed soul. All this has been stated in our website

One very important information I would like to share with my readers that the residence of Mrs.Vijay Laxmi Pandit, was not far away (within one km.) from 194, Rajpur Road, Dehra Dun. and in between almost on midway was the residence of Mrs. Naina Sahgal,(daughter of Mrs. Pandit). Mrs. Vijay Laxmi Pandit has got the honor of being first lady president of United Nations in 1952, she was the sister of Late Prime Minister Sh.J. N. Nehru. It is very difficult to say whether it was merely a co-incidence or it too hides any secret in itself.

Yes ! It was not a co-incidence, to-day on 26-02-2009, while reading the report of Khosla commission, i got the answer. Mrs. Naina Sahgal, Netaji and his family were known to each other, Miss. Anita Bose d/o Netaji, when she was 18 years old only, visited Calcutta and than to Delhi. At Delhi air-port, she was received by Mrs. Nain Tara Sahgal. So there is no doubt left that in 72-73, when Swami Shardanand ji came to Dehra Dun, He was provided the land very near to the residences of Mrs. V.Pandit and her daughter Mrs. Naina Sahgal. May be they might have played a key role in this regard. See this report;

5.7 Another nephew of Netaji, Amiya Nath Bose, who has appeared both as Counsel and witness in the present proceedings, wrote to Nehru on June 10, 1952, saying: "I want to send, from time to time, small sums of money to my aunt in Vienna." In another letter he gave the name and address of his Aunt as: Frau Emilie Schenkl, Ferrogasse 24 Vienna. Bose's family was quite enthusiastic about his widow and daughter until Lalita Bose made a suggestion in 1958 that Netaji Bhawan in Calcutta should be handed over legally to Anita. To this suggestion Amiya Nath Bose, at first, objected as also another nephew Dwijendra Nath Bose. They seemed to have agreed to the transfer somewhat reluctantly. But when Anita's visit to India began to draw near, they had second thoughts. On November 1, I960, Pradip Bose, who is another nephew of Netaji, wrote to Nehru that the members of the Bose family were meeting "on 9th November to discuss problems which her visit will entail and also to fix up a comprehensive programme for her." In this letter Pradip Bose did not question Anita's relationship with Netaji, and admitted that she had written to him. At this time somebody appeared to have thought that Anita intended to stay permanently in India. A question was asked in Parliament, and the reply given was that the daughter of Netaji was likely to visit India in December, 1960. Anita arrived in Calcutta and was warmly welcomed. Then she paid a visit to Delhi where she arrived on December 17. The Sunday Standard of December 18, 1960, published a photograph of her and also the following news item:

Miss Anita Bose, 18-year old daughter of Netaji Bose, arrived here today by air from Calcutta for a five-day stay. Miss Bose, who is accompanied by two other members of the Bose family, Dr. Sisir Bose and Lalita Bose, was received at the airport by Mrs. Nayanatara Sehgal, niece of Prime Minister Nehru. Miss Bose will be the guest of Mr. Nehru during her stay in the capital. Mr. Nehru received her affectionately at his residence...."

5.8 Some time after this, Haripada Bose raised a point that Anita was not Bose's daughter at all. The cry was taken up by other members of the Bose family apparently for the reasons that Anita's relationship posed a threat to their interest in the property left by Subhas Chandra Bose. Nevertheless, Nehru continued to feel the greatest concern for Bose's widow and child, and took steps to assist them financially. Apart from the small sums of money which Amiya Nath Bose sent her through the Indian Embassy in Vienna, Nehru created a Trust in the sum of Rs. 2 lakhs out of INA Relief Fund. The major portion of this money was drawn from the proceeds of a film depicting the career of Netaji. There was also a contribution of Rs. 45,000 by the West Bengal Government. The income from the Trust money was regularly sent to Mrs. Bose in Vienna. The Trust property was to become the property of Anita Bose when she attained majority. Emilie Schenkl wrote to Nehru expressing her gratitude for creating -a Trust for her daughter, Anita Bose. "May God bless you", she concluded, "for this noble gesture". Nehru took a personal interest in the drafting of the Trust Deed and the manner in which it was to be administered. Indeed, he showed far more concern than Bose's family. As early as 1958, when Anita was expected to pay a visit to India, Bose's nephews were not too eager to receive her. Dr. B. C. Roy, Chief Minister of West Bengal wrote to Nehru on December 5, 1958:

Netaji' brother believed air crash was an eyewash.

Sarat Bose's grandson Chnadra bose said he had learnt from his father Amiya Nath Bose that his grand father was suspicious  about Rahman's statement. Both Chandra Bose and Roma Ray told HT that the wrist watch of Netaji That Rahman handover to Sarat Chnadra Bose deepened his suspicion.

"My grand father got the watch tested at a London laboratory to find the nature of burn marks on it's band (proof that the plain caught fire and Netaji suffered third degree burns). Tha lab ruled the burn marks were caused by acid. Sarat Bose was then convinced his brother had deliberately spread the  news of his death." Chandra Bose said.

One last important thing, President of Iraq Saddam Hussain was one person but with six other identical of him. Out of those six only one the real Saddam was executed on the charges of provoking war against USA, though the truth is that USA attacked IRAQ twice. Similarly there may be any one or many claiming themselves Subhash, Swami Shardanand Ji was real Subhash Chandra Bose. Govt. of India has also approved it though unofficially as the role it played on his cremation at Dehra Dun by giving FULL STATE MILITARY HONOR to the departed soul in April 1977. No doubts were left in assertion. Unofficially GOI has approved, only a formal declaration is needed more.

Dr.Ramni Ranjan Das ,while merging the ashes of Swamiji in river Ganga, at Rishikesh said,"Netaji, He has finished the task with complete devotion, assigned to him, now by merging the ashes (Of Netaji) in holy Ganga." Mr.Inderpal Singh S.H.O. Rajpur Dehra Dun, was present beside him. He heard him saying so and asked him that until than he was misguiding police that the deceased was not Subhash but listening his words carefully, now he too believes that the deceased was certainly the great leader and freedom fighter Subhash Chandra Bose. This is certified by Sh. Inderpal Singh ji.

Most of us are unaware that Azad Hind Fauz or Azad Hind Legion) and Indian National Army were two different organizations. The previous was formed by Subhash in Germany in 1942. Subhash founded the Free India Center in Berlin, and created the Indian Legion ,which consisted about 4500 soldiers. They were out of Indian prisoners of war who had previously fought for the British in North Africa. The Indiache legion or Indian legion was attached to the Wehrmacht, which was known as armed forces of Nazi-Germany. Later on they were transferred to the Waffen SS, It's members took oath as," I swear by God this holy oath that I will obey the leader of the German race and state, Adolf Hitler, as the commander of the German armed forces in the fight for India, whose leader is Subhash Chandra Bose." This oath clearly shows the Indian Soldiers to the German armed forces, and unchallenged overall leadership of Subhash Chandra Bose.

The INA was not formed by Subhash Bose. The first INA was originally formed by Capt. Mohan Singh, (A British Indian army officer) he was the member of Indian Independence League, It received considerable Japanese aid and support. It was formally proclaimed in Sep.1942 and declared subordinate military wing of the Indian Independence league (IIL) in June that year. The unit was disbanded after disagreements between the Hikari Kikan (The Japan govt; agency which looked matter in INA and Japan Govt.) and INA in Dec.1942. Mohan Singh had understood that the Japanese high command was merely using the INA as a pawn and propaganda tool only, Mohan Singh was arrested, and the troops were sent to New Guinea's death valley to work on Railway as war prisoners. Sh. Ras Behari Bose (He was a revolutioner leader against the British Raj in India and was one of the organizers of IIL) struggled to hold the INA and IIL together. In a series of meetings between the INA leaders and the Japanese in 1943, it was decided to cede the leadership of the Indian Independence league and INA to Subhash Chandra Bose. In July 1943, Ras Behari Bose handed over the control of INA to Subhash. Mohan Singh too freed and became an executive member of the Provincial Government of Free India. Subhash assumed direct command of INA on 4th July 1943.

A very few of you people would be aware that Netaji was the head of an independent State (PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT OF FREE INDIA), which was recognized by nine countries (AXIS POWERS) including Japan. By being head of state, he deserved to be given FULL STATE MILITARY HONOR at his cremation.

Government of India paid it's homage by giving , FULL STATE MILITARY HONOR to the departed soul of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose in his new avatar as Swami ShardanandJi, at Rishikesh, Dehra Dun in April 1977.


In June 1977, after having been travelling in India for several months, we arrived in Rishikesh in the morning of 19th April (according to notes from our diary).

As we approached the town, we saw a big funeral pyre ready for cremation on the stony banks of the Ganges. We had already seen a lot of cremations while in India, so it was not the pyre itself that surprised us but rather the fact that there were quite a number of heavily armed police cars at a discrete distance. A small group of people gathered around the funeral pyre, which had not been set on fire yet.

Driven by curiosity, we got nearer and a few of the people standing around soon hurried to ask us if we were journalists and wondered how come we had heard of this event. We made it clear that we were just tourists. Then, when they saw our cameras, they were very eager that we should take photographs, for we were about to witness an event of historical relevance to India.

Next to the pyre there was a big wooden box full of sawdust and ice. The corpse of a dark skinned old man had already been placed on top of the pyre. Someone who seemed to be the most important man amongst those gathered there introduced himself as Suresh Padhye and gave us his address in Amravat, in Maharashtra (we enclose photograph taken right there).

                       Creamation of Neta ji at Triveni Ghat, Rishikesh, Dehra Dun, 19-04-1977.

He explained to us that:

It was the corpse of Chandra Bose, founder of INA (he told us briefly about the INA, of which we knew nothing), who had died a few months earlier somewhere on the Indian Himalayas, where he had lived in hiding and meditation. The Indian authorities had refused to give permission for a
public cremation for fear of revolt and demonstrations, mainly on account of the upcoming elections at the time. Later, once the elections were over, permission was granted on condition that it was carried out privately and under police surveillance. The corpse had been kept in sawdust and ice for those months. When we got nearer to take some photos, as requested, we could truly notice the very strong smell. They insisted on having photos taken of the corpse’s prominent forehead, because that seemed to be one of his outstanding features.

In a moment, the cremation followed its course and the skull could be seen; one of those gathered there bathed in the river following the ritual. Then he cracked the skull with a long cane he had dipped in the Ganges and greased with ghee. There came an elderly woman who started wailing and writhing on the ground, for a moment it looked as if she were about to throw herself into the pyre. Then she bathed in the river with her clothes on and left the way she had come.

This is an account of what we saw and wrote down in our travelling diary that day.

That was 1977, as we already mentioned. In those days we didn’t know who to tell about it. Now, we have entered the web and clicked on Chandra Bose out of curiosity, where we have been surprised at the vast number of items on his person and mysterious disappearance, the air crash in Taipeh and so on.

On reading about the existence of the MUCKHERJEE COMMISSION for the research into the end of Netaji Chandra Bose, we have decided to let you know about our experience concerning that cremation. We keep the photographs taken there, which may be interesting for your research.

Looking forward to hearing from you,

My gratitudes to both the tourists who arrived by chance at Rishikesh and took the pictures of cremation of Neta ji and sent me after 35 years in 2012 after reading my blogs.

Swami Shardanand is the only person other than army personals or dignities who got this honor. None civilian other than him, has ever been cremated with this glorious tradition. It was an unofficial declaration of him and the acceptance by govt. that Swami was indeed Neatji.

So it is up to the INA soldiers only to decide whether they want to unravel the mystery or help the govt. to high light---- Gandhi and Nehru, which gives the credentials of struggle of Indian freedom only to Gandhi and Nehru. Presently India is being ruled by the heirs of these political rivals of Subhash. They have completely changed the history of India. Their so-called Govt. historians have shown the Muslim tyrants as tolerant and peace lovers. They could not find any incident of Muslim tyranny in history. Ask these So called intellectuals if the Muslim rulers were so nice to other religions, how the mosques were built on Temples. For example the Babri mosque at RAM JANMBHOOMI-AYODHYA, at KRISHAN JANMBHOOMI-MATHURA, at VISHWANATH MANDIR-KASHI, and RAJA BHOJ KI DHARAMSHALA at BHOJPUR and may be at MANY more historical places. What was the need of Sikh Gurus to give the sacrifice of their whole families and their followers in millions? What was the need of a new religion SIKH or KHALSA) to come in existence? Why Sikh Gurus had to sacrifice for the sake of another religion, for to save Hindu religion from these tyrants?

They write that the Muslim rulers used to celebrate Eid, Diwali together with Hindus. These so called writers trying to set these Muslim tyrants were a passionate, kind and peace lovers. Whereas by looking back in the last 1000 years history of India, after Prithvi Raj Chauhan, I have found them most brutal, cruel and impatient to other religions. I think these historians or their ancestors have not felt the pain on the edges of sword and not asked to choose-----Either convert to Islam or give up the life.
So once again INA people and remaining close associates of Subhash are requested to share the hidden truth with all admirers of Subhash like us, so that we may be able to achieve our goal to build a great memorial in memory of Subhash at the place 194, Rajpur Road, Dehra Dun, where he breathed last. Come and join hands. I invite you all.

Especially we are in need of those sponsors who can help us to raise our voice on higher levels at different platforms throughout the world to aware the public and admirers of Subhash Chandra Bose.
