Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes from Jyoti Basu, the Authorized Biography by Surabhi Bandyopadhyaya (Penguin Books India, 1997), page 3: "8 July 1914 was a day of unceasing rain. The air inside 43/1, Harrison Road, the rented house in which the Basus lived, was laden with dampness. Hemlata Basu was in labour. Two hours later, as the grandfather clock in the hall chimed four, she gave birth to a boy. The house is still there, at the crossing of Amherst Street and Harrison Road, dilapidated beyond recognition."
