A hard-hitting account of Bengal's bloody history
30 May 2019
What we know as history isn't always a true retelling of the past. And often, history is hidden by falsehoods and a complete whitewashing of facts. Blood Island does the commendable job of uncovering the real bloody history of Bengal, a blot on its existence, carefully covered up by the Left, which ruled it for 34 years. The author takes up the painstaking task of tracking down survivors of this cold-blooded massacre,people who lost their loved ones, their homes. It also has the voice of the 'other', a representative of the very party blamed for the bloodshed. In this, it's truly unbiased.
It lives up to its name of being a truly oral history, and not once do the author's personal biases come through. Really interesting read.
