By P. Sainath
Publisher: Tullika

P Sainath lights a beacon on the many stories of freedom fighters from the margins. The book was meticulously researched through in-person interviews of those who joined the Independence movement, even those whose methods diverged from Gandhi’s. This book has many brushes and voices – for each of the 16 unique stories, there is an equally unique illustrator whose pen strokes have injected vigor and vitality in the chronicling of these astonishing lives.

Note: Young readers’ edition of adult book: The Last Heroes: Foot Soldiers of Indian Freedom (2022)
