India’s struggle for freedom from the British was quite long drawn and very eventful. Mahatma Gandhi and Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, Sardar Vallbahbhai Patel, Gopalkrishna Gokhale and others contributed a great deal. But Subhashchandra Bose’s contribution ,though substantial, has been off beat and quite different from the main people. In this book, the author presents his uncle in a different angle. The parting of ways from mainstream freedom fighters, Netaji’s ideas, thinking, feelings and ultimate choosing of a different path, has been revealed in this book through the eyes of his close friend and nephew.
