The novel depicts Oman as a representative of thousands of such people, whose
names could not find place in the books of history of our freedom struggle

for her husband stands out prominently in the backdrop of his unshaken patriotism
for his country as well as the saga of his sublime sacrifices.
Let us salute all those great souls and their sacrifices!
