Meticulously researched and skillfully narrated the story of the young idealists, emphasizes the role of the revolutionaries as an important part of the freedom struggle in India.
In this book, the first of it's kind, journalist Manini Chatterjee gives a riveting account of the real life drama without compromising on the facts. Drawing up on hitherto unpublished extracts from police records and government files and interviews with the revolutionaries, Chatterjee reconstructs the events of that fateful night when six ex-detenus, inspired by the famous Easter uprising in Dublin(1916), attacked the armories of the police and the Auxiliary Force in Chittagong. What happened in the ensuing three years is vividly narrated.
Chatterjee scores in giving human face to the dry bones of history. The mysterious Masterda, the irrepressible Kalpana Dutta and the brooding, tragic Pritilata Waddadar all come alive with their zeal and fervor, love and loss.
