About the book

The story of Rash  Behari  Bose starts  In the  1890s when a small boy began to dream  the  giant  dream  of an  India Independent   of  colonial  subjugation.   His were the hands that made the bombs lobbed at the Viceroy of India,  Lord Hardinge, in a crowded Chandni Chowk procession in Delhi in 1912.The attack not only dented Britain’s pride, it forever snatched their hope of ruling a sleepy subcontinent peacefully. Rash Behari then went on to become the mascot of armed struggle to free India; he was a prominent leader of the iconic Jugantar and the Ghadar Party and Inspired 1857-like mutinies   in 26 cantonments in 1915. Self-exiled in Japan, he gave the call ‘Asia   for Asians’, founded the Indian Independence League and later built the Azad Hind Fauj, providing a lifeline to several million POW Indian soldiers in the 1940s. Then, selflessly, he handed over the INA to Subhas Chandra Bose.

The book, A Samurai Dream of Azad Hind is also the story of thousands  of other men and women Involved In the armed struggle   to  free  India  and  the  extensive   support  network they  created,  not only  throughout   India, but  globally – from California, Mongolia  to Japan.  Imagine this at a time before the internet and mobiles.  No wonder the British gave up the Jewel in their Crown in a hurry as soon as their war ended.
