A former journalist, New Delhi-based Anuj Dhar is well-known for his research and activism relating to Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, especially the issue of his death. Through his efforts and talks, Dhar has revived memories of Subhas Bose among millions around the world.
Dhar’s 2012 bestselling book “India’s biggest Cover-up” triggered the movement for declassification of the Subhas Bose files and inspired Alt Balaji’s hit web series “Bose: Dead/Alive”. In 2018, Dhar wrote “Your Prime Minister is Dead”, which is first-ever comprehensive study of the enduring Lal Bahadur Shastri death mystery. Both the books have different editions, including in Hindi. Dhar provided inputs for Vivek Agnihotri’s film “The Tashkent Files” before writing his book.
Dhar’s latest offering is “Conundrum: Subhas Bose’s life after death” (2019), which he has co-authored with Chandrachur Ghose.
