"I, many of the Bose family and millions of Indians have long been of the firm view that Netaji did not die in a plane crash at Taihoku Aerodrome on 18 August 1945, for the simple and excellent reason that there was no plane crash at Taihoku Aerodrome on 18 August 1945. On 22 September, I appeared before the Gumnami Baba Commission of Inquiry. Deposing as Commission's Witness no. 1, I stated on oath that the nameless saint might well have been none other than Netaji" Jayanti Bose Rakshit, Grand-niece of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose.
From the Back-Cover
From 1955 to 1985, a strange holy man lived secretly, namelessly, in various parts of Uttar Pradesh. When he died, they named him Gumnami Baba. The Unnamed Saint. He has a museum to his name now. But his name remains a mystery. Was India's most legendary unknown man none other than its long-lost hero, leader and liberator, Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose? You decide.
