Remembering My Father Shri Tarun Bose on his 50th Death Anniversary

Shilpi Bose

 At the outset I would like to inform readers that my sister Shilpi Bose who authored this blog passed away on September 9, 2021. This was a personal blow to me, I did not expect it, it happened so suddenly. When she was alive we had discussed the possibility of us going to Nagpur and visiting St. John’s School where our father (late Shri Tarun Bose) studied and also St. Francis De Sales’ College, it was in aid of this college that a play was staged in the year 1956 in which our father acted, this paved the way for our father to join the Hindi film industry in Bombay. The renowned film director Bimal Roy was the chief guest at this play, he liked young Tarun’s acting so much that he made him an offer to join Hindi film industry. My sister Shilpi has mentioned all the details in this blog. 

St. John's School, Nagpur, Maharashtra, India
We could not make the trip when Shilpi was alive. This year (2022) marks 50 years since our father left us and I happened to go to Nagpur in November 2022, I visited both the above mentioned educational institutions, I clicked photos and also shot videos there. Please watch the video embedded below:
