Jallianwala Bagh 1919
It has been a century since the massacre at Jallianwala Bagh, but Punjab is still to recover from the shock of it. The British Empire never did either - the impact of those bullets fired for ten minutes at an unarmed, peaceful crowd inside a community park with one narrow exit rang through its remaining years in India. Yet, the true horror of the event itself has been forgotten, as also the volatile atmosphere in Punjab at the time.
Based on the reports of the Hunter Committee and the Indian National Congress, as well as other historical documents, this book provides a sharp analysis of General Dyer's actions and their fallout- the official narrative and the Indian counter-narratives.
