Book Description
It`s not often that one comes across a piece of solid scholarship that reads like a thriller. I hope future historians will do for our times what Shahid Amin has done for the infamous incident of Chauri Chaura` - Arundhati Roy. On February 1922, peasant volunteers who had enlisted in Gandhi`s newly launched people`s struggle against British rule turned violent and burned down a police station in `Chauri Chaura` killing twenty-three policemen. According to Shahid Amin, this dramatic occurrence simply had to be quickly forgotten as a stain upon the clean sheets of Gandhian non-violence. And so it was. `Chauri Chaura` was effectively blotted out of the grand narrative of Indian heroic nationalism, making a token appearance in `authoritative` textbooks.
