Azadi Ya Maut (Freedom or Death) (Hindi)


One of the most well-written of the histories to have emerged from the golden jubilee celebrations of Indian Independence, Freedom Or Death was first published in 1997. This edition, Azadi Ya Maut (Freedom Or Death) (Hindi), is the Hindi rendition of the book. This intriguing book follows one of the greatest mass migrations in History, viz. the Indian Empire as it trifurcated on August 14, 1947. The Hindus fled south, the Muslims fled north and millions were massacred along the way. The author expertly analyses the interplay between prominent characters such as Lord Mountbatten, Mahatma Gandhi and Winston Churchill and their roles in India's independence and partition, along with offering a reinterpretation of the incorrigible mistakes made by politicians and the strange reasoning behind many of their decisions and the perspectives of the individuals who played a role in the transfer of power. Based on meticulous research and sources that range from memories of the refugees to newly declassified secret documents such as the British intelligence records, Azadi Ya Maut (Freedom Or Death) (Hindi) offers a new account of the debacle that shaped the course of Asia's future. A great read that blends trivia with profundity, this edition was published by Penguin India in 2012 and is available in paperback. Key Features: The author was awarded the London Sunday Times' Young Author of the Year award for this book. This edition is published in Hindi.
