AS TAKEN FROM FLIPKART.COM A forgotten chapter of Indian history come alive On 18 April 1930 at around 10 p.m., a clutch of men, most of them still in their teens, challenged the might of the British Empire through a series of raids in Chittagong. Their actions stunned the colonial power and ignited the spark of rebellion throughout Bengal. In this book, the first of its kind AS TAKEN FROM FLIPKART.COM A forgotten chapter of Indian history come alive On 18 April 1930 at around 10 p.m., a clutch of men, most of them still in their teens, challenged the might of the British Empire through a series of raids in Chittagong. Their actions stunned the colonial power and ignited the spark of rebellion throughout Bengal. In this book, the first of its kind, journalist Manini Chatterjee gives a riveting account of the dramatic events that unfolded over three years. Drawing on police records and government files and interviews with revolutionaries, Chatterjee reconstructs the events of that fateful night when six ex-detenus, inspired by the famous Easter Uprising in Dublin (1916), attacked the armouries of the police and the Auxiliary Force in Chittagong. What followed were the battle of Jalalabad, the encounter at Dhalghat, the attack at Pahartali and the underground resistance, led by the mysterious Masterda, the irrepressible Kalpana Dutt and the brooding, tragic Pritilata Waddadar. This is a story of their zeal and fervour, love and loss. Meticulously researched and skillfully narrated, the story of young idealists, heady with patriotism and ready to die, this is an important, and so far neglected, story of the freedom struggle in India. About the Author Manini Chatterjee was born on 4 November 1961 in Bombay and went to school in Cochin, Bombay and New Delhi. While still in school, she did a diploma course in journalism from the Dateline School of Journalism and started writing for Dateline Delhi . After completing school, she went to the Lester B. Pearson College of the Pacific in Vancouver Island, Canada. On returning to India, she began a career in journalism with a stint in Surya magazine in 1982- 83, followed by a long spell at The Telegraph , where she currently heads the Delhi bureau. When it was first published, Do and Die received the Rabindra Puraskar (2000). It is the basis of the Hindi film, Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey (2010), directed by Ashutosh Gowariker.
