Description

Stories of invasions of India by foreigu aggressors has been turned into a saga of defeat. The truth of the huge resistance from Indian heroes who fought and won numerous battles defending the land of Bharat has not been told.

Saffron Swords puts together many unknown stories of the valiant resistance.

Every inch of the motherland was fought for and protected. Hundreds and thousands of Indian warriors won battles and fought until their last breath defending the motherland. These warriors came from East to West, North to South. They were men and valorous women, drawn from all jatis, who fought against the invading hordes.

There is Rampyari Gurjar who led a force of 40,000 women against Taimur, of Karnavati, the Queen from Garhwal who defeated the Mughal army in 1640.

We learn of Shivdevi Tomar, the 16-year-old Jat Girl who killed 17 British Soldiers during the revolt of 1857 and of Kapaya Nayaka, the Telugu Chieftain who reconquered Warangal from the Delhi Sultanate. Stories which inspire, stories which have been buried.

Indian History text books have hardly glorified these real warriors of the soil. A nation ignorant about its brave history, cannot rise up to craft a brave future.

Saffron Swords, with 52 tales of valor, is a tribute to the unsung warriors of India, both men and women, from the last 1300 years. This book is the first in its series.
