1942. The Do or Die call of Mahatma Gandhi towards total independence resonated across the country. In the remote village of Barangabari in Assam, a frail girl in her early teens was stirred by this clarion call. The story of Kanaklata Barua (1924-1942) is one of the most inspiring episodes in the history of India's freedom struggle. Kanaklata was only seventeen when she fell to the bullets of brutal police firing while trying to hoist the tricolour at the Gohpur Police Station, a symbol of British power. In bringing to light this little known yet significant sacrifice of Kanaklata, the book look at the whole hearted participation of women in the freedom movement who broke through the barriers of patriarchy, caste, traditions and customs. It is also a narrative of the socio-political and cultural history of Assam and its major role in shaping India's modern history.
