The political career of Subhas Chandra Bose has been the subject of much research and debate, drawn from material on his public life. This article weaves together the public and the private at critical junctures of Bose's career to offer alternative explanatory factors for two famous journeys made by Bose. The first journey was Bose's escape from India to Nazi Germany in 1941 and the second journey was his flight from south-east Asia in 1945, a journey that was to prove his last. Looking at these 'public' actions in the light of 'private' reality, this article argues that while public, political factors did motivate Bose to undertake these journeys, he was also moved by powerful personal reasons.
