When the ancient ways of a peaceful but brave tribe is threatened by the arrogance of an empire, savagery of the civilised, and greed of the affluent, the only thing left to do is rise in rebellion. The year is 1855. The tribe: Santals.
Moving through a whirlwind of passion, greed, betrayal, cruelty, and sacrifice, this narrative of the first mass rebellion against the John Company brings to life a footnote in history that casts a grim shadow on our present.
'This book should be made required reading for every bureaucrat, politician and school child in this country.'
