"It was a wonderful experience interacting with you and appreciate the way you have planned and executed the whole publication process within the agreed timelines.”Subrat SaurabhAuthor of Kuch Woh Pal
This book on Jesus Christ is by a devotee of Sri Sathya Sai Baba. The devotee happens to be a man who spent a prolonged period of his life in the Indian army as a civil engineer. His distinguished service in the cause of the nation was acclaimed and awarded by the Indian army.
Later, the colonel-devotee answered the call of Baba and he became an ashramite at Prasanti Nilayam, Puttaparthi, in Andhra Pradesh.
At Prasanti Nilayam, the engineer-devotee Samir Bose was chiefly instrumental in helping to build the Chaitanya Jyothi Museum. Baba appointed him as its administrative director. Now in his 80s he still remains actively engaged as its founder-director. Here his latent talents as an artist and as an author surfaced.
In the best tradition of the all-embracing heritage of India’s spirituality – where every religious faith is considered to be true and equal – author Samir Bose has served the reader with his own view of Christ and Christianity.
We are honoured to include some pen-sketches of Col. Bose to reveal his versatility.
The book is bound to generate interest among serious thinkers.

Col. S.K. Bose
Samir Kumar Bose was born on 5 May 1937 in Patna, Bihar. After his initial education in local schools, he joined Scindia School at Gwalior and completed his schooling in 1954. In 1955 he was selected for the National Defence Academy and in 1959 was commissioned in the Corps of Engineers of the Army.
He graduated in Civil Engineering from the College of Military Engineering in Pune and was posted to the East. He did engineering projects in the foothills of what was then known as NEFA and the plains of Assam. When war with Pakistan began in 1965, he was moved from Tinsukia (Assam) to Akhnur (West of Jammu) on promotion to Major.
Shortly thereafter he was wounded. After a surgical operation and treatment in various military hospitals, he was found fit for active service and posted to a unit in Pune. A couple of months later, a lady physiotherapist joined this unit from KEM Hospital in Mumbai. She was to be his wife.
His final posting was as Chief Engineer at Director General Naval Projects, Mumbai. The work involved setting up a complex for submarines and repair facilities for warships. For his exemplary performances, he was awarded Chief of Army Staff’s Commendation Card.
He went to Sri Sathya Sai Baba’s Ashram on his mother’s sudden death in February 1999. His parents were living there from 1974. His father learnt about Sri Sathya Sai Baba when he was Director, IIT Kharagpur from 1969 to 1974. Col Bose had his first darshan of Baba in Jan 1977.
As decided by Baba, Samir Bose supervised the construction of a Museum showcasing Sri Sathya Sai Baba’s Life and Mission. On 6 Feb 2000 his father, too, passed away. On Baba’s orders he started looking after the functioning of the Museum from November 2000, when Baba inaugurated the Museum. He still continues to do so.
