Badal Syed said, ‘I believe that it is our duty to write more on 1971. I have very little memory of 1971 as I was between 4 and 5-year-old back then. Some of the stories in this book are written based on the incidents I witnessed back then. My elder brother was a freedom fighter and he inspired me to tell the stories of the Liberation War.’
