BIOGRAPHY

Really, our purpose is not to write another biography of Netaji. Not because it is not required, but for many other reasons. Excellent biographies of are Netaji available. However, they are deficient in some aspect or other. We are still awaiting a comprehensive political biography.

In the meantime, we present here a series of articles by people who came in touch with Netaji, to bring out the different flavours of the many faceted personality, as well as many little-known events of his life.

In addition, we will present articles on the various aspects of his ideology and vision of India.
