1 Krishna Bose
An Outsider in Politics
Penguin/Viking; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0670999555 / 9780670999552; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Writer, educationist and three-time Lok Sabha MP from Kolkata, Krishna Bose gives a compelling account of her journey from the time she was a schoolgirl witnessing some of the tragic scenes that accompanied Partition to her stint as chairperson of the Parliamentary standing committee on external affairs. Married into the family of Subhas Chandra Bose, her acute yet sympathetic observations in An Outsider in Politics illuminate the changing world of the Kolkata intelligentsia from the 1940s to the present day. She writes vividly of her experiences as an academic and a working mother and gives a ringside view of the drama of election campaigns, the complexities of parliamentary politics and the forces shaping India’s foreign policy at the turn of the new millennium. This understated but elegantly written memoir combines intimate family and social history with a gripping political memoir. Printed pages: 272. 024225

2 Krishna Bose
Lost Addresses: A Memoir of India 1934-1955
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789385285066; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Krishna Bose was born Krishna Chaudhuri on 26 December 1930 in Dhaka, to East Bengali parents settled in Calcutta. In December 1955 she married Sisir Kumar Bose, son of the barrister and nationalist leader Sarat Chandra Bose and nephew of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose. She is a multifaceted personality-a professor, writer, researcher, broadcaster, social worker and politician. Lost Addresses is Krishna’s story of her childhood, adolescence and young adulthood. It vividly describes Calcutta, Bengal and India in the 1930s and 1940s and the early years after Independence. Krishna’s memories of growing up and coming of age are set in the social, cultural and political milieus of the time. The East Bengal heritage and the life of the Calcutta intelligentsia at its prime feature prominently, but this is no private nor provincial memoir. India and the world were then in great ferment and transition. Krishna re-lives how she experienced World War II, the Quit India movement of 1942, the Bengal famine of 1943-44, the Red Fort trials of the Indian National Army (INA) officers in 1945-46, the Great Calcutta killings of 1946, and Partition and Independence in Delhi in 1947.Printed Pages: 204 with b/w illustrations. 102447
