A country with vast fertile land, a plethora of cultures and people, India has so much of diversity. This land had been set free 70 years before. 300 years of this land’s equally vast history has been reserved for the Indian Freedom Struggle.
As I always mention, history is a story. And every story has 2 perspectives. Similarly we are lucky enough to have 2 different versions of the Indian Freedom Struggle.

Books, books, books, life is so full of them. As long as they are around we are truly wealthy. Be it fiction, an encyclopaedia or just a dictionary; books are an expert with matters of the heart and the soul.
More often than not, we forget about these loyal companions and about the whirlwind romance we shared with books. Our hate for textbooks takes away most of our time. Occasionally a short reminder of an engaging novel takes us back into fantasyland. There is no greater sorrow than a completely read novel. You can’t experience the story again like its new and you can’t live in it any longer. Turning the last page in a book is like a slap in the face, the slap of reality. Don’t we all have a moment of silence after every book we finish? I know we all do.
