Ramachandra Guha, "Silver lining of 2014 elections: the professional as politician"

March 30, 2014

The Indian freedom movement was largely led by those who exchanged professional success for an uncertain life of struggle and sacrifice. Mohandas Gandhi, Motilal Nehru and Vallabhbhai Patel each abandoned a lucrative legal practice. Subhas Chandra Bose and Morarji Desai turned their back on careers in the civil service. Jamnalal Bajaj built a flourishing business empire before joining Gandhi in prison. Had they not chosen politics as a vocation, Maulana Azad and Ram Manohar Lohia could have been famous academics; Jawaharlal Nehru and Jayaprakash Narayan prosperous writers.

Blending a lineage of erudition and nationalism, Harvard University history professor Sugata Bose, grandnephew of Indian revolutionary Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, envisions a globally competent India in terms of education as he joins the political battle for the Lok Sabha elections.

His mother Krishna, an eminent writer and educationist, is a three time parliamentarian from the constituency.

March 20, 2014

A historian cannot but talk history, be it in a Harvard classroom or in front of a hometown crowd of political supporters.
Sugata Bose, professor of oceanic history at Harvard University and the Trinamul Congress’s candidate for the Jadavpur Lok Sabha seat, peppered his 17-minute speech at his first karmi sabha (workers’ meet) with nuggets of history to illustrate why he had thrown his hat in the ring and what he wanted his supporters to tell the voters.
