The hidden truth - Reveda Bhatt
A secret, this six-lettered word might seem normal, but the problems and awkward situations created when it comes out a complex. It contains power, the power of inducing conflicts, so some say it's better if the painful reality is kept to ourselves. They exist in politics and in "the democracy of our nation." One such mysterious secret almost unfolded was the death mystery of "our almost Prime Minister" Subhash Chandra Bose.
It was in the year 1945 that he boarded an aircraft going to Taiwan. The plane stopped midway for a few hours, and when it took off, in the air, its elevator caught fire, and the plane crashed, which was the reported end of this leader's life. His funeral took place, but the remains weren't his, as claims suggest! But the Indian Government stated that it was in the truth, but as evidence suggests, maybe Prime Minister Mr Jawaharlal Nehru did not want the truth to come out!
Many cases about his death mystery were registered, but the Indian Government closed them when they nearly unravelled the secret. Pieces of evidence found suggest three theories. First, he died in a plane crash, but that is not true as the agency denied he crashed his plane, saying that such a plane had never crash-landed in Taiwan from where the incident was reported. The second one says that he changed his identity and lived in Uttar Pradesh as a saint mystic because his stuff had been found, such as the pair of spectacles he used, his books and articles. The third one suggests that he went underground to the public, which is proved by the photo of Mr Lal Bahadur Shastri clicked in Tashkent, years after his reported death. The secret was unravelling, though the Government did not want it to. Soon after this picture was clicked with Bose in the background, Lal Bahadur Shastri even died in a mysterious plane crash.
