About the Book

Hell breaks loose as the people fight back… and the seashore turns red…. It was an armed revolt against the government – a fight between automatic guns and crudely made sickles and spears. KV Mohankumar’s book tells the untold story of a People’s Movement in India’s not-so-distant past, a tale of haves and have-nots and a class struggle where the dead exceeded that of the Jallianwala Bagh massacre. A notable feature of this novel is its vivid portraits of impressive female characters and its brave teenagers. At the same time, it weaves a beautiful account of some legendary lives in Kerala and the cause of the subaltern, tracing the history of radical uprisings that led to the present Maoist movement in India. Certainly, this novel bridges the glaring gap in literature that comprehensively portrays the landmark anti-feudal protest in all its complexities.
