The first turning
point in his life came when he was expelled from his college for taking a leading part in
assaulting an English
Professor of his college. His resentment against racial arrogance lay at the bottom of
this agitation. His father refused to get him admitted in any other college. Bose got
readmitted in the same University the following" year.
There wits no further set-back in his education and he took his degree with a First Class
Honours in Philosophy.
India was passing through turbulent times in those years and Subash's father did not want
his young son to be affected by it. So he sent him to England to compete for the ICS
examination, In which Bose qualified himself in 1920, securing ahigh place. The fMni1V
built high hopes on their brilliant son.
