India's biggest cover-up is an investigative insight into the Netaji mystery and its stranger than fiction subplots. Relying heavily on official records—bulk of them still security classified in violation of democratic norms—the book uncovers a systematic obstruction of justice by the Government of India. First for any book in India, the narrative has been augmented with the excerpts and images of still secret records. Archival material and information obtained under the freedom of information acts of India, the US and the UK has also been made use of.
About the Author :
Anuj Dhar, who has spent more than a decade in trying to make sense of the waxed issue, takes you through a maze of intrigues involving some of the biggest names before outlining measures to incontestably resolve what has been the longest-running among the controversies of modern India. And the most explosive too, you will now believe.
Third class political propaganda
It totally ignores what Netaji's relative Sugata Bose wrote in 2011. Third grade propaganda stuff that talks more politics nad contemporary events than about Netaji. Rather buy Sugata Bose's book if you really want to know the truth.
Biggest cover up !!!!!!
There are many conspiracies surrounding around Bose disappearance from 1945 and the most accepted is his death in Taipei air crash,If u think that Subhas Bose died in 1945 air crash as per the Governments report or according to the shah nawaz and khosla committee reports then your wrong.
This detailed book has all the evidence that supports the air crash theory was hoax created by japanese to escape Bose to Manchuria, also many theories say that Bose was spotted in china and siberia in 1950's indeed he was there as per the records available.Russian authorities is mis-leading India about Bose presence in their soil during stalin's era.
One thing is very clear that congress never showed any interest in Bose disappearance even the two committees appointed by congress simply copied Japanese version and declared Bose died in air crash, Mukherjee commission was appointed to resolve the case,but unfortunately again today's govt rejected its report.If at all our Govt had taken High diplomatic level approach to Russian Govt as per the recommendation of Mukherjee committee the mystery had taken another turn.
Its all political disinterest of the Govt from Nehru to till date, surprisingly IB had played a role in covering up the facts about Bose and by destroying many crucial "Top secret" records in the name of clearance routine, to know all the tricks played by our govt, Executives and top Bureaucrats to finish up the Bose Mystery, u must read this book and its really worth also mind u that what ever Mr. Dhar has claimed in this book has a supportive document attached to it, of many are declassified records and few being classified and top secret in MHA and MEA of India.
The interesting part of the book lays in "Bhagwanji's or Dead man"chapter shocking facts are shown, this book is true eye opener about the Bose Mystery.
Hats off to Mr.Dhar and other leaders like Samar guha, Leela Roy for there patience and interest shown in bringing justice to the country's forgotten leader.
Great work with great research !!

Anuj Dhar, has done full justice to an issue, every Indian would be interested to know. A brave,scientific & very logical tactful approach towards all myths & facts of India's Freedom Legend- Netaji !!
A Man who deserved a Nations's Salute died an anonymous death, a complete shame & outrage to country who shouts for its culture & cultural values.
The passion behind the subject & its outcome is more thriller than any holly-bolly epic in this century !!
Hats Off !!
By S. R. BHANJA,
The best book on Subhash Chandra Bose from 1945 to till death (1985). Must must must read & great book!!!
Hats off to the writer. A superb & appreciable approach & an aggressive effort of the writer to almost solved the mystery of Netajee's dissappearance. The book solves most of the missing information about Netajee after 1945. Huge amount of information, gathered in a systematic way & addresses many political & national issues. well identifies the villians of the game.
The book has the unmatched potential of making a blast in the Indian minds, particularly in young Indians who love Netajee.
A must read book for all Indians!!!
A book not to be missed
By Saugata Sen,
One of the best books that you will read on this subject. Anuj Dhar has done a wonderful job, going through pages and pages of old records, classified information and testimonials and brought out a lot of astounding facts as to the mystery of the Bose disappearance. It seems never in history has a Government of an independent state done so many things to suppress, cover up and hide facts from its people who have a right to know. Written in an amazingly lucid style, this book is a must read for readers who have been intrigued by the mystery surrounding the disappearance of our greatest Hero and wanting to know the truth about what really happened to him........
A Must Read !
The book is an wonder and bears the true fruits of a genuine research backed by passion and love ... literally i couldnt stop reading it ... held aback with surprising revelations coming up in pages and snippets of sercret letters being flashed ... the picture of SOMEONE in a high voltage Conferance in Paris just made me go mad ...finally i wd say, this book is a must read for all and everyone who worships TRUTH...Satyamev Jayte !
The best book on Netaji death mystery!
By Sreejith Panickar,
There are many books around on the Subhas Bose death mystery, but Anuj Dhar's India's Biggest Cover-up stands out from the rest, due to three reasons. One; it is new. The author weeds out fables from the mystery and delves deep into the subject. Two; his premises are backed by logic, findings by evidences, and writing by reason. He also presents an action plan to resolve the mystery. Three; the very title of the book! Dhar takes the lid off the longstanding plane crash myth and in doing so, calls a spade a spade. He uncloaks some of the shoddy national leaders and officials who have been lying to the nation to lead us to believe that Bose was killed long back in a plane crash. Not surprisingly, the list includes India's first Prime Minister and even the would-be President! I suppose, that justifies the title.
To start with, Dhar flails the plane crash theory on its head by laying out evidences against it one after another. I don't think there would be too many punters for the plane crash story after reading the book. Dhar even springs a surprise by showing the photograph of a high profile meeting of 1960s attended by a 'Bose look-alike', who is yet to be identified! Regarding the Bhagwanji angle, he presents the stories told by the baba disciples and tries to find matches from historical events. He displays great poise in dealing with beliefs about Bhagwanji, without going overboard.
Dhar also exposes a good mound of documents based on which he deduces his views, all logical and factual. Dhar assists the readers to use their own common sense to draw conclusions. Now the most important question - how would I rate this book? I can say with confidence that in terms of 'completeness', only one thing would contain more details on the Bose mystery - the quarantined information lying in our government archives. In one's avidity for more information on the Bose mystery, India's Biggest Cover-up would remain 'the best vade mecum' on the subject.
