Born and raised in the Midnapore district of the Indian state of West Bengal, Bose became a part of the teenage community that spoke about ideas related to revolt against the British Raj and striving for the country’s independence.

Courageous since his early childhood, at the tender age of 16, he had asked for a revolver from his school teacher, and soon took to a lot of planning against government officials to contribute to the country’s freedom movements.

At that age itself, he planted bombs near police stations aiming to blow off government officials, which resulted in him getting arrested and sentenced death. Later, he was convicted in the Muzzafarpur killing, wherein he blew the carriage which had the daughter and wife of Barrister Pringle Kennedy with a bomb, while his target was to kill Kingsford.

He was hanged on 11th August, 1908, at the mere age of 18 years.
