Amazon Sales Rank: Ranked #76 in Colonialism & Imperialism History

History of the Andaman Islands - Unsung Heroes and Untold Stories' is different and unique unearthing many riddles and facts of Indian and Andaman history. The book is an outcome of the decades-long research on the soil of the Andamans by an Andaman born ethno-historian.

Andaman History is neither only of pirates and aborigines, nor about the land of fishes, corals and beaches alone. It is larger, longer, more various, more beautiful and more terrible than anything anyone has ever said about it. The diverse historical events have left their mark as a reminder of some good and some bad times, of tragedy and hope, of atrocity and courage in the face of it, of great acts of sacrifice and bravery; so much so that the saga of sacrifice and the martyrdom, beginning from the freedom struggle of 1857 to end with the freedom in 1947, can never be forgotten.


Despite the unpleasing fact that a large part of the history records were burnt by the Japanese in the Andamans, writing with verve and extraordinary range, the author dividing the book into three parts Time, People, and Place, exclusively unravels the riddles of the history, especially pertaining to the untold heroes of the Indian Mutiny of 1858, the unforgettable events, the unsung stories, the aboriginal attacks and the reasons thereof, the witnessed tales of the torture, the sacrifice and the massacres. Apart from its enlightening role, the book, by giving unexpected important clues about the people lost in wars and struggles, establishes a sentimental value in the hearts of their descendants.
