    Wanted to put this thread together to take on board your views regarding Netaji
    Did he perish in the plane crash?If yes, how come none of his aides were hurt and what happened to the INA Gold?
    Why would the Russians capture him(as many hypothesize) and not use his formidable stature among the Indians to have an ally right from the late 40s
    If he did return, why did he live as Gumnami baba(as many hypothesize). What or who was he protecting by not coming out in public. Or is there another reason?
    Nehru n the crooked Congress spied on his family till the 70s as they were paranoid of him but were they ALSO under instructions from an outside/inside force to carry out the spying?

    The slimy Nehru never wanted him around but imagine what India would have been had he returned.
    He was the only independent thinker in the Indian sub continent and China around that time (I include China because, even China went with a western borrowed concept of Marxism/Communism)

    Was Gumnami Baba Netaji? Not sure: Report< ..

    LUCKNOW: The Justice Vishnu Sahai Commission’s report on the mysterious ‘Gumnami Baba’, which was tabled in the UP cabinet on Tuesday, says it’s difficult to determine whether he was indeed Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, as popularly believed.
    The findings of the commission formed in 2016, which will now be tabled in the UP assembly, reportedly only draw parallels between Bose and the Baba. It mentions that other than literature in English, Bengali and Hindi, the three languages in which Netaji was fluent, books on Bose himself and authors he liked to read have been recovered. Sources said that the report also mentions that Gumnami Baba was also fluent in these three languages and was an influential person to whom people flocked.

    “As per the report, Gumnami Baba continued to stay in his Faizabad house till rumours of him being Subhash Chandra Bose surfaced, after which he left that place,” said the source.
    The report, prepared by Justice Vishnu Sahai, was commissioned by the SP government in 2016 on directions of Allahabad HC. The court order followed a PIL, in which the petitioner claimed that Gumnami Baba was Netaji.
    Sahai had told TOI in September 2017 — a day after submitting the report to the governor — that many people he interviewed had come with the pre-conceived notion that Gumnami Baba was Bose. He said collecting reliable testimony was a challenge since Baba died in 1985 and witnesses deposed before the commission only in 2016 and 2017.
