This book is an important contribution to the literature on the Jallianwala Bagh massacre, one of the most significant events in Indian history. It provides a detailed account of the events that led up to the massacre, the actions of General Dyer and his troops, and the aftermath. The author draws on a wide range of sources, including official British records, Indian newspapers, and personal accounts, to provide a comprehensive and balanced analysis of the event. One of the key strengths of the book is its attention to the human cost of the massacre. The author vividly describes the scenes of horror and suffering that took place on that fateful day, and the impact that the event had on the lives of the victims and their families. Another important aspect of the book is its analysis of the official British Narrative and the Indian counter-narratives. The author shows how the British Empire attempted to whitewash the event and downplay its significance, while the Indian nationalists sought to portray it as a symbol of Indian resistance to British rule. The author also highlights the role that the massacre played in the Indian independence movement, and how it contributed to the growing sense of nationalism and resistance in India. Overall, "Jallianwala Bagh - The Real Story" is a highly informative and timely book that provides a fresh perspective on one of the most important events in Indian history. It is a must-read for anyone interested in Indian history, politics, and culture.
