He was also a well known academician, whose textbooks on chemistry are still widely used. In 1967, he was elected to the 4th Lok Sabha from Contai constituency in West Bengal as a Praja Socialist Party (PSP) candidate. He was re-elected to the Lok Sabha in 1971 and 1977 from the same constituency. He was a member of the Janata Dal (Secular) till his death. He died on 17 June 2002 at Calcutta.[1]

Connection with Bose Mystery[edit]

Many sources reveal that Shri Samar Guha established connection with Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose when he was in India in spiritual oblivion (Gumnami Baba; also called Bhagwanji). In book "India's Biggest Cover-up" by Anuj Dhar, it has been mentioned that he was in direct contact with Bhagawanji. He met him several times. But Bhagawanji (Netaji) broke all contact with him & his associates when Samar publicly declared about his presence in India. Netaji's picture was placed in Parliament because of the effort of Samar Guha in the 1970s.
