About the Book

Sixty young men, aged between 14 to 25 storm into the heavily guarded British armoury, loot it and hoist the Indian flag keeping the town independent for three days. Five revolutionaries fight a formidable British force armed only with pistols for hours before they run out of ammunitions. A young woman dressed in men's uniform barges into the European club in Chittagong with few others and opens fire before being surrounded by the army. Study of recorded history of India's freedom struggle leaves out multitude of people. In free India, it would be a historical cruelty to ignore the influences of small actions by individuals or groups on our freedom struggle. History is based on and includes the sum of history prior to the period under study. By the same logic, it influences the history of the period that follows. Therefore, to ignore individual or small group actions will be a great injustice to a fair history. Few Torn Pages from India’s Freedom Struggle is an effort to bring to light historically unrecorded individuals and their contribution to India's freedom struggle. These are accounts of very highly motivated young men and women who influenced the course of India's history. - Major General Sheonan Singh, VrC (Retd)-Nephew of Shaheed-e-Azam Sardar Bhagat Singh)
