Justice for Subhas Chandra Bose
An Indian Ambassador was allowed to meet Bose -- on the condition that he would not
try to speak to him. When the Ambassador wondered about what to do in case Bose wished to speak to him, "he was told that
it has been taken care of," … A rather ominous bit of hospitality. -- Reported in Hindustan Times dated
4 March 2001. Visit: http://justiceforsubhas.blogspot.com/2007/04/god-forbid-this-should-be-true-indian.html
