Acclaimed writer Mrs Manju Lodha would be proudly launching her new book, Paramvir on 28th of April at Nehru Centre, London. This book revolves around the lives of the brave men who fought for their motherland, India on land, sea or air; during the Kargil War. The book comprise of twenty one such instances of bravery recounted by the friends and families of the brave hearts.
Paramvir Chakra is the highest military honour that is bestowed by the Indian President to those serving the military. So, far twenty one Paramvir Chakras have been awarded. Thus, this was an apt name for the book.
Mrs Lodha comments, “Paramvir is very close to my Heart. My new book takes you into the hearts and minds of those who die so that we may live. Each story has been encapsulated after spending time with the family, friends and colleagues, which added a personal touch to each of the 21 stories, making them heartfelt memoirs.”
Mrs Lodha’s father-in-law was a freedom fighter and a true patriot at heart. Her husband too is in politics but with a patriotic fervour to his goals. Thus, patriotism has been instilled in her roots very deeply. She is credited with eleven other books, some of which are Bharat Bhagya Nirmata, Babul, Paati, Maa and Yaden. Paramvir would be launched in English. Her main intention of launching this book in London is to bring the stories of India bravery to the UK and the Indian Diaspora in the UK.
