About the Book

They were the Lions of Gorakhpur. The ones who were hanged on a hot summer day were not ordinary men. The likes of Abdullah, Bhagwan, Vikram, Dudhai, Kali Charan, Lal Mohammad, Ram Swaroop, Rudli, Sahdev Kahar and many more like them had given up their lives for the sake of the country. They were the martyrs who are not remembered with the honour they deserved. But they kindled the flame of freedom, and later Chauri Chaura of 1922 provided the critical mass that put the country on the path to independence. On A Hot Summer Day In Gorakhpur is the story of a voyage that goes beyond the sleepy town of Gorakhpur, to the serene campus of Aligarh, to the land of opportunities United States, to return back from where it all started, but only after watching the madness that changed the world on 9/11. In this book, for the first time, inconvenient truths about the caste system amongst Muslims of Asia are brought to the surface. A political thriller with romance and betrayal which will captivate the reader until the last page is turned.
