This work is not strictly a factual chronicle of India's winning of freedom. It is more.
Kamla, in school and college, lends a a storyline to the events, her parents, grandparents and great grandparents, who too are fictional, supplying the links.
The early stirrings, enduring offerings, non-cooperation in action, popular fervor, patriotic deeds and their perils, sacrifices, the triumph and tragedy make the warp and weft. Karla is a listener as also an observer and participant to be able to carry forward the heritage. The relevance abides ever, to value our fr4eedom and to cherish it.
