Between Gandhi And Hitler
SBS2  |  December 21, 2009

What really happened to Subhas Chandra Bose? He was worshipped by millions for his lifelong campaign to see India claim its independence from Britain. He networked with powerful figures, including Gandhi, Hitler and the Japanese government, spending his life travelling between India, Germany, Austria and Japan. In early 1945, Bose, aligned with Japan, mounted an attack on the British. But when information about their planned attack was leaked, Bose's forces were left with no choice but to surrender. Three days after the defeat, Bose escaped on a flight to the Soviet Union. However, the flight never arrived at its destination - the plane crashed, and Bose was announced dead. News of Bose's death was broadcast around the world, though in 2006 an Indian Judicial Commission concluded that the crash never happened.
