I downloaded this exceptional book from here http://library.du.ac.in/dspace/. This site is a veritable treasure trove of old but gold books which have gone long out of print but remain relevant even today.
The late and great Veer Savarkar’s ground breaking book The Indian War of Independence was the first writing of the war of 1857 against the British ( to be more specific the East India Company) from an Indian perspective.The book like its author underwent many trials and tribulations at the hands of the British who tried their best to destroy it.
I am uploading it.Please go through the book ,so the next time a clueless person says the British were great for India (same nonsense that they gave us railways,etc etc) ,you will know better.Educating ourselves on the past is the only way to prevent it from recurring.
As time permits I will try and do a write up on “What the British Did for India”,a compendium of all their atrocities.
