Remembering Saragarhi: Author’s Interview with Jay Singh-Sohal
In it, I answer the four questions that people always ask me about Saragarhi:
– What is it?
– What exactly happened?
– Why write about it
– Why was it forgotten.
In short, here’s some answers from the clip:
– It’s a battle of epic proportions that took place in 1897
– 21Sikhs made a defiant last stand against 10,000 Pathans, fought and died
– Because it needs exploration through factual history
– It was overshadowed by other campaigns and eventually the Great War, but it’s significance is strong
