Hotels travelers are raving about The most brutal fighting unfolded on the unforgiving northeast Indian border with Burma, and Karnad takes himself and the reader deep into Nagaland to find the war graves of Imphal. There he b Raghu Karnad's "Everybody's Friend" is a poignant pilgrimage to the military grave of a great-uncle, fallen defending the obsolescent Raj against the oncoming army of imperial Japan.
There he broods without heavy reproach but with stoical sorrow on the marginalisation of memory offered to Indian troops who, in the authorised epic of Indian independence, fought on the "wrong" side for their imperial masters while the much thinner ranks of the Indian National Army, Subhash Chandra Bose's fighters, have been accorded the rites and respects of freedom fighters Kindle Edition , 13 pages.

Feb 24, Sumirti Singaravel rated it it was amazing Shelves: It gives a short introduction to the premise of his later, much-coveted work Farthest Fields. It throws up light on how the Indian army fought battles for the British Raj, when their own leaders were struggling for freedom.
The whole essay is centered around Imphal and how the history has been completely forgotten, and worse, never acknowledged in mainstream Indian history. Raghu Karnad renders the history in an excellently honest fashion. But, one must constantly remember, that what he writes here is very much from the oral history which is passed on by locals from their memory and a lot many details had already been lost, irrecoverably. Yet, this makes one quick and compelling reading.
Forty thousand men served in the INA; 2. Yet the experience of the latter has sunk with all hands. Between the closing chapter of imperial history and the first volume of the national record, we let drop the page that had Indians fighting on both sides".
Now, I really really want to fetch the bigger book by the author. View all 3 comments. Jun 17, Angela Maher rated it liked it Shelves: More of a journey than a story, this is a slice of forgotten history, both national and personal. The writing style is nice, but it felt a little aimless at times. Dec 03, Debarghya Paul rated it liked it Shelves: An essay touching on India's forgotten history of the second world war..
