Unknown Heroes Of India's Freedom Struggle
This unique collection of graphic narratives by illustrators from across the country, in their distinctive styles, tells 16 stories of the forgotten foot soldiers of India’s freedom. Adapted from P. Sainath’s meticulously collected chronicles, it honours their contributions. Coming from varied regions and communities, speaking different languages and practising diverse beliefs, these not-so-ordinary people were united by one cause – a free India.
This graphic non-fiction is a rich visual document in which text and images communicate powerfully. As India enters its 76th year of Independence, it is meaningful to bring these stories to young people. It offers a true and complete picture of our hard-earned freedoms and why they need to be defended.
