    A must read small book by Sandeep Balakrishna. This work is a collection of ten episodes and stories from the nearly inexhaustible mine called the history of India. Writer is well known for showing unknown history and writing the real truth. I hope he write more books, maybe bigger one perhaps. These stories also tell us why a thorough and truthful study and retelling of this history is needed.

This book is blunt & unforgiving towards the perpetrators of indian history who in my opinion are no better than traitor. As the name suugests In here you find several account of sheer grit, heroism & valour of great indian rulers, who's reputation of being undefeated at war was enough to ward of any islamic invasion into india. This was also the reason for the difference of 300yr between the 1st &the 2nd islamic invasions into india. But ofcourse this fact was conveniently hidden. This books goes on to site several historians from both sides of the battlefield ie both Islamic and eminent Indian historians like R.C Majumdar, Sitaram Goyal, giving you a true account of what actually conspired in the chapter of historical events of significance mentioned in this book. All in all, this is a book that is short easy read, but only for those who wishes to flip the coin, & look at the unpleasant facts of history.

    The author provides anecdotes of people forgotten, wars won but whose battles were lost. It was difficult to read as it created an emotional stir within. As the Author puts it multiple times, this is an alternate to the Romila Thaper-Irfan Habib history that we get to read in our textbooks and mainstream media.

    After completing " 70 years of secularism" By Sandeep Balakrishna, There were mixed emotions filled with rage against the fanatics who drowned Bharata in a blood bath and the proudness in the Kshatriyata of our Kings who gave their lives to preserve and pass it to our generation.

So I have picked this book to understand more about our Hindu kings who reserved for 3 to 5 lines of our history book under the deception of secularism and Marxist ideology. In this book, the author tried to offer an explanation of how Bharatvarsha shifted from the golden age to the barbaric age in 10 episodes which had a significant impact on our history. In the first episode, the author gives a glimpse of Paramara Bhoja who reigned for 55 years in Bharata Varsha with the reference of Bhoja Prabhandha. During the Bhoja era Bharata Varsa at its peak because of spiritual ethos and Kshtriyata in the blood of everyone under his administration. The author emphasizes the need for such stories to be re-told to boost the morale of our generation in the face of all Marxist history. The second and third episode mainly focuses on Jaypaldeva who fought till the end of his reign with ideals of dharma and Kshatriyata against fanatical and brutal Ghajini with valor. The author highlights how biased and communist historians systematically downplay the valor of Hindu kings to whitewash the tyrant's crime. The third episode mainly focuses on how a loss of dharmic and Kshatriya value led to the demise of the Golden age of Bharata Varsha which stood against all odds for centuries. The fourth, fifth, and sixth episodes focus on the extended tyranny of aliens. the author gives the horrific history behind the construction of Qutab minha which was built using the stones of destroyed 24 Hindu and Jain temples. The fifth and sixth episode revolves around Krishna deva Raya and Talikote war which led to the demise of greatest Hindu dynasty and final frontier of Hindu kingdom caused by the foolishness of Raja Rama Raya. The remaining episodes do talk about Tajmahal, the Battle of Nijagal, the Genocide of Katha, Hindhu's history of Pakistan with detailed explanation. But there are some episodes are the reputation of the content 70 years of secularism which I find boring. Overall it mirrors the heroism, grit, and valor of our ancestors against the barbarians, Marxist, British, and brain dead liberals. I love his writing style because sometimes it feels like war cries against the aliens of fanatics land.

    Right from the first chapter about Paramara Bhoj, this book became really engrossing for me. As the title of the book goes, it indeed was a collection of lessons for Hindus whose life has been taken over by the distorted narratives and has filled them with apathy towards the history and geography of Bharatvarsha. Few excerpts from the last couple of chapters, which talk about the more recent events, were so unbelievable that I had to read them twice to comprehend if I'm reading them right.

    There is a big hole in Indian history adulterated by Marxist historians. Habib's and Thapar's have dedicated their whole lives to create more soy faces out of Indian Hindus. Thanks to - Ashish Iyer - for recommending this book Though we have few authentic thinkers who can write and contemplate about real history and morphology of the Indian subcontinent, it's high time now to understand their POV and make amendments in the Ideology of the majority populous in India.

    Thanks to my friend Mr.Ashish Iyer for recommendation of the book. This is the second book from Mr.Balakrishna, a spectacular writer. He gives life to all those forgotten heroes of Bharatvarsha who fought tooth and nail with barbaric Muslim invaders. Unfortunately, in any of Indian history books, they are deliberately buried under greatness of mughal history. Author points out a very important issue about annihilation of Hindu memory by losing Hindu land one by one .

Unfortunately, in any of Indian history books, they are deliberately buried under greatness of mughal history. Author points out a very important issue about annihilation of Hindu memory by losing Hindu land one by one . Loss of Gandhar (Afghanistan), Mulasthana (Multan, Pakistan) and Bangladesh did immense harm to Hindu intellectualism. Author said "unless we learn and remember this forgotten Hindu history of Pakistan, our kids, here in India, sometimes in the future, will have textbooks written like this - Two atoms of hydrogen and one atom of oxygen come together, and by the grace of allah, water is formed."

    The book is a collection of articles (mostly published) on- The Dharma Dispatch. Needless to say the articles are written in style typical of Sandeep Balkrishnaji. The chapters, which are a commentary on 10 episodes from our history, do not necessarily put any lessons, directly in front of us but rather they are left to be deduced and extracted by us, the readers, for which the writer has done a vivid and passionate narration.

The articles have been expanded a little but it would have been all the more good had the writer cared to add some images and maps too, since these have been combined and compiled for a book. Now off to Invaders And Infidels.

    Interesting read about the Hindu side of war history against Islamic invaders (the side that the Irfan Habib-s and Romila Thapar-s of the world have tried so hard to suppress). Was glad to see that the author highlights and cites Sita Ram Goel's and R.C. Majumdar's work extensively. Not a fan of the writing style, however.

    Worth a read for history enthusiasts on some of Bharat's forgotten heroes and rulers. Hope NEP policy helps to bring exposure to this side of history.

    Maps and less verbose wording would have made this a more meaningful read. Still, I'm glad to see a book highlighting the heroes leading the Hindu resistance against Islamic invaders instead of the constant weakness-narrative paraded by the "star" historians.
