Book Review of
21 Kesaris The Untold Story of the Battle of Saragarhi
by Kiran Nirvan
History is full of stories of untold Valour. Each event was as remarkable as the other was and me being a history buff never loses a chance to pounce on something so good.
So when the Bloomsbury gave me such a chance to review this book, I without wasting a second, pounced and devoured the whole book ’21 Kesaris’ in no time.
Opening Lines: In the vicinity of the famous Golden Temple in Amritsar rests a little-known cenotaph which bears immense significance in India’s colonial history.
Publication Date: April 25th, 2019
Authored by Nirvan and Kirandeep Singh, this book ’21 Kesaris’, tell us the tale of 21 soldiers of the 36th regiment.
The warriors who fearlessly fought the tribal army of 10,000 Afghani Pathans.
It is just 182 pages long, with no dearth of information.
Both the authors have done thorough research and tell us about the sum of events that lead to this historical battle of Saragarhi.
This book also gives us an insight into the formation of the Sikh community and gradual modification brought about by the disciples in the years following.
The narration of the book is so gripping that I had to remind myself to breathe every now and then.
The writing style is very crisp and easy that even the newbie readers will find it easy.
I found nothing to complain about this book. It is a perfect, fast-paced detailed read on all aspects.
My Rating: 5/5 stars
