I am Sreejith Panickar, founder-member of Mission Netaji, an Indian research group that tries to solve the Netaji mystery. In Oct-2015, Prime Minister Narendra Modi invited the Bose family and Mission Netaji to his New Delhi residence, and made the historic announcement to declassify the Netaji files. In Feb-2016, Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav invited the Boses and Mission Netaji to his Lucknow residence, to discuss Gumnami Baba, a hermit, whom many thought was Netaji in disguise. Yadav then expedited the movement of the baba’s belongings to a museum.

I write columns and opinions for newspapers, magazines, and media portals on the Netaji mystery and other social and political issues. I am a spokesperson for Mission Netaji and a panelist on national television debates on Times Now Newshour, NewsX, Mathrubhumi News, Janam TV, and People TV. Do check out my blog here.
