Review: Gandhi and Bhagat Singh

Gandhi and Bhagat Singh Gandhi and Bhagat Singh by V.N. Datta
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Could Gandhi have saved Bhagat Singh from the gallows is a question that raises itself periodically. Professor V.N. Dutta lists the previous arguments and presents his own take on the subject. I am not thoroughly convinced by his argument but agree wholeheartedly with him when he says that Bhagat Singh's closest comrade, the fire-brand, Sukhdev, has been neglected for too long. If anybody deserves a text, it is Sukhdev.
