By far one of the best books I have ever read. This book is not for just Khalistanis, but for everyone who wants to know the truth. It is written by a non-Sikh and a non-Indian for that matter giving it a bi partisan view of the Punjab situation past and present. It is a well-written and easy to read book. At times this book was so intense that I had to put it down so I would not over flow with emotion. This is not for the weak of heart; there are eyewitness stories of militants and survivors of tragedy. I have read other books on the Punjab crisis but none come close to the one on one interview that Cynthia has given. These stories will grip your heart and turn it around. Stories of brave Sikhs IN OUR TIME! Many times people think that the days of Baba Deep Singh are gone, but after reading this book you will know there are countless of those kinds of Sikhs, who are upholding what Sikhi really is, while we live in luxury and just proclaim our selves as Sikhs with high heads. There heads pay for our heads tending tall today. We have been humiliated by the Government of India, and the only reason that we can even walk with our respect today is because of what the freedom fighters in Punjab did for us. Many times you will see non-Sikhs wearing a Kara, I once asked one of my south Indian friends, why do you wear a Kara, and his response was, this is the sign of bravery. What bravery? Today we wear a Kara and proclaim to be brave, and this comes from the lives others have given. So many people don¿t know the truth, and even some of our own Sikhs choose not to know the truth because they are fearful that it might make them uncomfortable in there 'comfortable' life styles. How can we live easily while the rest of our people suffer? This makes people take the easy way out, and decide, it¿s better if I don¿t know, then to be made to feel guilty. I think I have gone off on a different direction, but back to the book. If you know English, and are someone who proclaims to be a Sikh, then you owe it to those people who died, to at least READ about them, and what they went threw. They have given their today, so that Sikh Panth could have a prosperous tomorrow. Put down the TV Remote and pick up this book. For the sake of humanity READ THIS BOOK...
