10:00 – 11:00
Adult | English | AED 75 | No: 001  


The controversy over the death of Subhas Chandra Bose, one of the heroes of the Indian freedom movement, is still debated to this day.
Ashis Ray, a foreign correspondent with 40 years’ experience with the BBC, CNN and other major news organisations, seeks in
his book Laid to Rest to find closure to this argument. Piecing together a plethora of firsthand, eye-witness accounts gathered over 30 years of extensive research, Ray presents the definitive account of Bose’s death. A demonstration of the importance of research and of countering conspiracy  theories, this compelling talk is not to be
missed.
