Description

A translation into English from Hindi original, this memoir is a true account of Bhaskar's mission to find out about Pakistan's nuclear plans.

He was betrayed by one of his colleagues, presumably a double agent, and had to face the music on his own. The interrogation, which was done by the army and police, included torture of the worst kind imaginable. Many of his comrades went insane or ended their own lives. Large portions of his stories describe the methods used in gory and spine-chilling detail but there were also lighter moments with dacoits, prostitutes, pimps and dope smugglers in the same jails.

He witnessed history unfolding from Mianwali jail: When Sheikh Mujibur Rehman was brought there and had his grave dug and then refilled when Bhutto released him to return in triumph to Bangladesh. From his cell, he watched Indian bombers and fighters knock out Pakistan's air force from the skies.

COMMENT:

Jai Ratan's translation from the original Hindi reads very well. I can recommend it to readers who have the stomach for suspense and horror.
- Khushwant Singh
