Fateful Events of 1947 (The Secret British Game of Divide And Quit)
Description
About the Book

1947 saw the demise of the British Indian Empire and the emergence of India as an independent country. It also witnessed dubious endeavour on part of the departing rulers in partitioning a sub-continent into India and Pakistan. Side by side, their deliberate game to balkanize India and Pakistan. Side by side, their deliberate game to balkanize India by keeping some princely States independent was too obvious.

The year was full of fateful events since the surgery of separation was an unusual phenomenon, causing immense blood letting. Compressed between the natural demand for national unity and an artificially engineered two-nation theory, the desperate British went in for a comprehensive conspiracy to take advantage of the continuing communal civil war for achieving their sinister design of 'Divine and Quit'.

This book, constructed from original source-material including confidential documents of some of the British Viceroys and officers as well as some letters of Winston Charchill to Muhammad Ali Jinnah deals with the intricacies of the problems which over-whelmed the great men of India like inexorable forces of time. Everybody played his role and an ancient country. But, Time was against India's formidable patriots who had to suffer the agony of seeing their life's hopes disappear in disappointment.

1947 will ever remain a turning point of history as the year of triumph and tragedies to be remembered by generation to come. This book will be of because immence use to students, scholars and general readers it provides a detailed insight into the happenings of that eventful year.
