Jallianwala Bagh, 1919
In the hundred years since the massacre at Jallianwala Bagh, the volatile atmosphere in Punjab at the time has been forgotten, as also the true horror of the event itself. The details of the widespread agitation against the Rowlatt Bill, which led to the gathering at Jallianwala Bagh, begs a nuanced and unbiased documentation - as does the larger canvas of the revolt and rebellion in the country.
This book looks at how Jallianwala Bagh became the flame that ignited the freedom movement, as well as the role of nationalists such as Madan Mohan Malviya, B.G. Tilak, Lala Lajpat Rai, Saifuddin Kitchlew and Satya Pal in the events before and after the slaughter.
