A Gentleman’s Word: The Legacy of Subhas Chandra Bose in Southeast Asia

Rating:
4.6 rating
Synopsis:

Indian nationalist, Subhas Chandra Bose, spent the last three and perhaps most crucial years of his life in Southeast Asia. And yet, while his contributions to India's independence movement are recorded exhaustively, less is known about his legacy in Malaysia, Singapore and Burma. This book addresses that gap in the international understanding of Bose and explores some facets of his impact on the Indian Diaspora - particularly on the women, plantation workers and youth in the post-war period.

Author Details:

Nilanjana Sengupta is a notable author of Singapore who has built a reputation in writing books which travel to unchartered territories. In A Gentleman's Word she chronicled the legacy of a forgotten war hero, Subhas Chandra Bose across Southeast Asia. In, The Female Voice of Myanmar, she wrote of the latent masculine bias of Burmese culture and women voices which have managed to cut through the clutter. A Biography of M Bala Subramanion was a nuanced look at the Tamils of Singapore who though the majority Indian community, struggle with vulnerabilities of their own. Sengupta, a research scholar at NUS and ISEAS-Yosuf Ishaak Institute, has been critically acclaimed, widely read and her books have been translated and included in the university course.
