No doubt sardar patel deserve's much more than nehru. Worshipping false Gods is what we are doing yet, It's high time the truth be told, lies which were maquraded as history must go.

A much-needed work on the most important man for independent India. The book is a meticulously researched, and extensively footnoted work that conclusively busts many myths propagated by many over the years. It also sheds light on the fractious and yet fruitful relationship between the triumvirate of Mahatma Gandhi, Sardar Patel, and Pandit Nehru.
