|Which is more meaningful for us to know: how we LOST our independence or how we WON it? Undoubtedly, the answer to the first question has priority. We must learn how only a handful of British could subjugate and rule zillions of us for nearly 200 years! This information will help us in taking care of the mistakes committed by our ancestors. It will also prepare us to meet similar challenges in future. Yet, our textbooks don’t enlighten our students much on the subject. Also, there are very few publications on this topic. Why? Since British rule started with their victory at the Battle of Plassey in Bengal, this story is based on that background. It uncovers some obscured chapters of our past, which are crucial for us to know. Notwithstanding its Bengali antecedents, the storyline has a direct bearing on the historical criminality of entire Indian subcontinent. There are many unaddressed questions about socio-political history. Who had started the Hindu-Muslim discord, and how? Why, following partition, the displaced people from Pakistan received different treatments in different regions in India? For the book lovers in general and history buffs in particular, many such thought-provoking issues are there in this book.
