Fauji Heart

Author Name: Neerja | Format: Hardcover | Genre : Literature & Fiction | Other Details

Fauji Heart is a captivating set of short stories, where each one has a unique flavor and yet together they build up a whole and nuanced picture of the Indian soldier. One where he is not a unidimensional stereotype of a brave-heart sworn to protect the nation, but a real, breathing, complex human being living an undoubtedly odd but fulfilling life. This collection offers a rare insight into army life that is sometimes mundane…sometimes fantastic, sometimes humourous…sometimes tragic, sometimes lonely…but always filled with adventure. ‘Civilian’ readers will enjoy this experience of engaging with the fauji world in such a real manner...beyond the tragic headlines or the usual patriotic rhetoric. Though most of the stories are set in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s they will undoubtedly resonate with old faujis and the new generation alike.

Neerja is a fauji wife who has spent more than three decades of her life living the authentic Indian army experience. From posting to posting, from peace time to action, from the borders of Arunachal to the cantonments of Roorkee, from waist-deep snow to snake infested deserts; from tents to barracks to bungalows she has packed up two kids at the drop of a hat to take on a new adventure with her husband and his other family - the battalion. Her rich, real life experiences as an army wife bring a vivid genuineness to this collection of short stories. The book also features three stories penned by her husband, Naren.

Neerja also writes for children under her pen name Nessa K.
