 Top 10 popular recommendations Description

It stands out even in a country inured to mass violence – 3,000 members of a minority community slaughtered over three days in 1984, right in India’s capital.

Twenty-three years on, neither the organizers of the massacre nor the state players who facilitated it have been punished, despite prolonged inquiries and trials.

This massacre of Sikhs in the wake of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi’s assassination has turned out to be a reality check on India’s much touted institutions of the rule o law.

The book seeks to uncover the truth on the basis of he very evidence that came to light during the proceedings of the Nanavati Commission.

Authors Manoj Mitta and HS Phoodkar, perhaps the most knowledgeable voices on the subject, present an unsparing account, abounding with insights and revelations, on the 1984 carnage and its aftermath.
