A book titled ‘Brave Hearts of Bharat, Vignettes from Indian History’ by Vikram Sampath, an anthology of 15 stories of men and women and their indomitable spirit of freedom and courage, was launched in Delhi. The book is published under Penguin publication. The book chronicles the stories of courage and determination of few individuals, whose stories largely remained untold and therefore unknown for a long time.
The essence of the book:
Fifteen Brave Men and Women of Bharat, who Never Succumbed to the Challenges of Invaders. But Lost and Forgotten in the Annals of History. This is the Story of these Bravehearts, who Fought to Protect their Rights, Faith and Freedom. History has always been the handmaiden of the victor. ‘Until the lions have their own storytellers,’ said Chinua Achebe, ‘the history of the hunt will always glorify the hunter!’ Exploring the lives, times and works of long-forgotten and mostly neglected fifteen unsung heroes and heroines of our past, this book brings to light the contribution of the warriors who not only donned an armour and burst into the battlefield but also kept the flame of hope alive under adverse circumstances.
