Short Description

"Saffron Swords: Tales of Valor" is a compelling series that uncovers the often-overlooked stories of bravery and heroism displayed by Indian warriors over the past 1300 years. Facing invasions by Islamic rulers and the British, countless Indian men and women demonstrated unwavering courage and resilience in defense of their motherland. Unfortunately, these remarkable stories have been overshadowed in Indian history textbooks, which tend to emphasize the accomplishments of invaders. "Saffron Swords" sets out to correct this imbalance by presenting 52 inspiring accounts of India's unsung heroes, paying tribute to their indomitable spirit and their significant contributions to the nation's historical legacy. This series, beginning with the first volume, is dedicated to unveiling the forgotten heroes of India. Building on its success, "Saffron Swords (Book-2)" continues to share 52 more untold episodes of Indic resistance from the 8th century to India's fight for independence. These stories underscore the importance of understanding one's past history, origins, and culture, as wisely noted by Marcus Garvey: "A people without knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots."

About the Book

Part - 1

"Saffron Swords: Tales of Valor" is a book that seeks to shed light on the often-overlooked tales of courage and heroism displayed by Indian warriors throughout the country's history. Over the past 1300 years, India faced multiple invasions, first by Islamic rulers and later by the British. Despite the challenges, countless Indian warriors, both men and women, displayed unwavering bravery and resilience in defense of their motherland. However, these remarkable stories have often been neglected in Indian history textbooks, which tend to focus more on the accomplishments of the invaders. "Saffron Swords" aims to rectify this by presenting 52 inspiring accounts of India's unsung heroes, serving as a tribute to their indomitable spirit and their contribution to the nation's historic legacy. It is the first installment in a series dedicated to unveiling the forgotten heroes of India.
