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.

Short stories of Indian historical Heroes who didn't got much recognition in the Indian Chapters of History Books. This book gives a short idea about the valorous fight that have happened in the History with Mughals or Britishers or other foreign invaders, and about Veer or Veerangana who sacrificed his or her life for the nation.

Saffron Swords by Manoshi Sinha Rawal is an amazing book that tells us about the unsung heroes of India generally not been discussed in the school /college textbooks. Stories of Baji Raut, Naiki Devi, Saraswathi Rajamani were greatly inspiring . A nation must remember and honour its heroes . Every self-respecting Heroes must do so! Jai Hind!

Saffron Swords by Manoshi Sinha Rawal is a wonderful collection of the valorous tales of 52 unsung heroes who lost their lives in the service of the motherland. This book will be beneficial for school and college students in letting them know about great freedom fighters who died defending their nation, but remained neglected by the leftist intelligentsia.

The history that has been taught to us in our schools and in colleges too is incomplete, one-sided, or worse and completely biased. Let's take an example how much do we know about the valourous saga of our ancestors. Author Manoshi Sinha Rawal, promises us to take onto a whole new level of history, where one can find a number of brave and unsung heroes and heroines of India, who did not find a place in history textbooks. The history of India was presented us in a way where we read good things about the invaders but never come across such stor ... more
