  • We are therefore observing his birth anniversary on December 3 as Medha Diwas. The decision to observe this day as Medha Diwas had been taken some time ago. From 4 Dec we have begun this new tradition in Bihar. I would urge the Centre to consider doing so at the national level", said the chief minister.
  • "The day should be celebrated, across the country, by promoting merit and rewarding the meritorious. It should be done the way former President S Radhakrishnan's birth anniversary is observed as Teachers' Day across the country and Maulana Azad's birth anniversary is observed as Education Day in Bihar", he added.

If you... participate actively in tech and coding discussions online, the recruiter gets a fair idea about your interests," says Rishabh Kaul, co-founder, Belong, a recruitment startup.

  • "After years of research, I can confirm that Bose's life ended in Saigon, most probably at Vietnam's Bot Catinat prison, on the basis of the French secret service records," he said. "The letter of the French authorities not to allow me to consult a lone file pertaining to the INA and Bose in Saigon has come as a great surprise to me.
  • This goes to affirm my conviction that Bose's life ended in Saigon sometime in September 1945. That is why this file has been classified as out of reach for consultation for 100 years," said More, who teaches at the Institut des Hautes Etudes Economiques et Commerciales, Paris.
  • More said it is now up to the concerned people or the Indian authorities to demand the French to open up this lone file that is withheld from the public for 100 years. "This file must contain information about the last days of Bose," said More.
