Hamare Azadi ki Ladai, a book containing untold heroic stories of unsung and unknown freedom fighters who fought for India’s freedom, was released at Oxford Bookstore. The book authored by renowned historian Govind Prasad Srivastava was formally inaugurated by filmmaker Aniket Chattopadhyay, author-social-activist Sumitra Padmanabhan and journalist-author Ritwik Mukherjee.
The book Hamare Azadi ki Ladai is published by Power Publishers on the occasion of India’s 72nd Independence Day. The late author’s son Anand Srivastava who flew from London to attend the event of his father’s book launch, read out excerpts of the book that brought out untold facts about Jalianwallabad massacre. He said that the book tries to talk of many heroic stories of freedom struggle that most Indians are unaware of. The book tries to bring forward these forgotten heroes and unknown stories of known heroes of India’s nationalist movement.
Journalist turned filmmaker Aniket Chattopadhyay spoke on the occasion of the release of the book, said history needs to be written from the neutral viewpoint. Most history that we read today has been written from a biased viewpoint, that glorifies someone and shows someone else in unfavourable light.
The event was moderated by Anupriya Dutta, the General Manager of Power Publishers. The book Hamare Azadi ki Ladai is available from all leading online and offline bookstores.
