The source of India's civilization is founded in two epics: Ramayana and Mahabharat. Incidentally, both are based on two cataclysmic wars which were fought to uphold truth and justice where righteousness prevailed over evil. Lakhs perished, as martyrdom on the battlefield was considered the greatest of honours. These ethos and values run in the veins of every Indian.
The book is a saga of Lt. Col. Ajit V Bhandarkar who lived the life of a hero and died on the battlefield where his blood enriched the soil of his motherland is inspirational.
