The former MP was married to Sisir Kumar Bose, nephew of Subhas Chandra Bose. Born in Dacca (now the capital of Bangladesh) on December 26, 1930, to constitutional studies specialist Charu Chandra Chaudhuri, Bose taught at the City College in Kolkata for around 40 years. She was elected to the Lok Sabha for the first time in 1996, then again in 1998 and also in 1999. Bose is survived by sons Sugata and Sumantra, and daughter Sharmila.

Erudite and articulate, Bose made a mark in parliament through her informative and insightful speeches and served between 1999 and 2004 as chairperson of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on External Affairs which oversees the conduct of India's foreign policy.

She authored a number of books in English and Bengali including the much-acclaimed ''An Outsider in Politics'', and regularly contributed articles to leading newspapers and periodicals. Itihaser Sandhane, Charanarekha Taba, Prasanga Subhaschandra, Smriti-Bismriti, Netaji: A Biography for the Young, are among her notable publications.
