Saffron Swords

How much do we know about the valorous saga of our ancestors from the east to west, north to south of Bharat? Unfortunately very little! Were we always defeated? It is a BIG No! But we have been projected as losers! During the last 1300 years, our ancestors across the country put up a brave resistance against invaders, first against Islamic invasion and rule and later the British. Hundreds and thousands of our warriors won battles and many fought until their last breath defending the motherland.

Indian History text books have hardly glorified these real warriors of the soil. We have grown up reading more about the glories of our invaders. A nation’s citizens, who are ignorant about the brave feats of their ancestors, tend to deviate away from their roots, historicity, and their sense of belongingness for the motherland. Saffron Swords that contains 52 tales of valor, is a tribute to the unsung warriors of India, both men and women, from the last 1300 years. This book is the first in its series.

This book is a collection of biographies of 52 Heroes of our nation , many of them fairly sung of [#BhagatSingh , #VeerSavarkar ] and most of them Unsung . What is common in all the biographies is that they all had a very big impact on the history of our country. The sad truth is our History textbooks barely mention anything about them , if at all ! The co-author of the book and the author's husband , Yogendra Singh Rawal asks the author Was it always the case in history that we lost all the times on the battlefield ? The author researched ever ... more

The bunch of stories of our brave ancestors who broke the spine of invaders. This book promises the fascinating journey of valour , bravery,courage of our ancestors. In this book the stories of 52 warriors that our generation kept unknown from our historians....... But this book lacks of some facts , at some places author uses excess metaphorical language that broke the link if reading But author must be applauded for her brave step to uncover , unmask the real history who gave each of us the feeling of proud .
