Mysteries intrigue us. We all like suspense-thrillers. In films, mysteries get solved in the end. But in real life, some just stay there, open to various interpretations and conclusions.
Here are the top 5 Unsolved mysteries of India:
- Subhash Chandra Bose’s Death
It is believed that Subhash Chandra Bose died in an airplane crash in Taiwan on 18th August 1945. Shah Nawaz Committee and Khosla Commission stated that Subhash Chandra died in the crash but Mukherjee Commission reasoned that Bose did not die in the plane crash. It is important to note that all the aforementioned committees were appointed by the India government to inquire into the case but the Indian government dismissed the conclusion of Mukherjee Commission. Amidst all of this, there are stories of a man who lived in Faizabad by the name ‘Gumnami Baba.’ Many believe the baba was Netaji himself as he knew very personal information about Netaji. That mysterious person passed away in 1985.
The Hero of Nathula Pass
Late Sepoy Harbhajan Singh of the Punjab Regiment died a tragic death in 1968 in Sikkim in a fast flowing stream. His body was recovered after a couple of days and was duly cremated. But it is said that he appeared in one of the soldier’s dream and requested a memorial to be built in his name. Soldiers say that he still helps them with attacks and informs them about any forthcoming attack.
Taj Mahal: A Shiva temple or a Mausoleum?
This one had to be in the top 5 mysteries of India. P.N. Oak, a writer, who died in 2007, claimed that Taj Mahal was built in 1155. According to him, Taj Mahal was a Shiva temple named Tejo Mahalay which was invaded by Muslim Emperor Shah Jahan who turned into a Mausoleum for his wife. Oak shows some facts and statistics in his book Taj Mahal: The True Story, to prove his theory. But he also claimed that Hindus once conquered Italy and Westminster Abbey was once a temple of Shiva.
Yeti of Himalayan Region (Him Manav)
Yeti, in Nepal’s folklore, is an entity very akin to an ape which is taller than an average human being. Some people believe Yetis are present in the Himalayan region of Nepal, Tibet, and Bhutan and some clearly dismiss their existence. Some evidence have surfaced in favor of their existence but their veracity needs to be assessed. Yetis are perceived by a certain section of the people as a helpful creature while others label it as a menacing one. People still search for them but whether their search will be fruitful is not assured.
Death of Lal Bahadur Shastri
Lal Bahadur Shastri, 2nd Prime Minister of India, died due to a fourth cardiac arrest. This is what Shastri’s doctor had said. Shastri’s wife, on the other hand, claimed that her husband never had an issue with heart and that when he passed away, he had blue marks on his body, possibly proposing he was poisoned. His death followed the Tashkent declaration and this makes Shastri’s death more obscure.
So these were the top 5 mysteries of India.
