The information which has reached us systematically about the history of the attack is mostly distorted. To know the reason for this, books by Sitaram Goel should be read. Bringing a ray of truth out of this repository of distorted information and findings is also an amazing task in itself. Then too, to create those facts in such a way that the purpose of revealing the truth is not too burdensome for the reader and also to remain interesting, much creativity is required. Sandeep Balakrishna has written it very well. History is not interesting to everyone in the same way, readers find it boring but the effort of Sandeep is an attempt to tell the public their history in a very interesting way.
The demise of civilization is marked by the destruction of its rich and vibrant history. Indian history textbooks have been used as "tools for propaganda" to sanitize tyrants and whitewash "invaders" as "tolerant rulers." The glorification of a few personalities and undermining of the contributions of many "unsung heroes" have left the young Indians, oblivious to their history. It is high time that critical history-lovers come forward and enlighten the masses about the "true yet untold; vibrant yet lost history" of India.
This book is a must read especially for those who want to know but are not used to reading. At the same time, I am confident that even those frequent readers like me will find this book appealing.
We cannot truly comprehend our own selves or the history of our nation or, indeed, the history of the entire world, unless we unshackle ourselves from the bonds of false knowledge, desire and action, and elevate the intellect to a state of detached observation.
Eagerly waiting for release of next volumes.
