An excellent engaging historic read. | Book Review on Mastaan-The Fallen Patriot of Delhi by Vineet Bajpai

Mastaan-The fallen patriot of Delhi brings to our readers an overwhelming reflection on the incidences of 1857 during the governance of British East India Company. This book is an ode to the unsung heroes of our indian history. Though there are a lot of instances that remember our freedom fighters, Vineet Bajpaiโ€™s Mastaan relives some unanalyzed facets of history and never made it into our history books or documentaries. Itโ€™s a detailed portrayal of the great warrior and how much dependent were the English men on our indian soldiers not because we, back then, were employed by the British but because Indians were self-qualified to have a respect and dignity of their own.
There are vast historical relationships that unveil the beauty of a book.

Mastaan is believed to be the strongest and most loyal soldier of East India Company. The son of a martyr has inculcated the blood of bravery in the solid man. British have always been talked and taken in a negative perspective through the pages of history. The book has something to offer on every page and you cannot really skip any. Neither would I recommend you to read this book at one sitting. It engulfs your mind and takes you to the era of those times.

There are correlated stories of the great freedom fighters associated with Mastan . The book is fast paced with gripping storytelling and a good reader would surely get lots of chances of guilty reading. As I said the book shows a diverse correlation among many characters, the author merges the scenarios pretty well. I’m glad the author writes crisp and thankfully thereโ€™s no beating around the bush in this book. As the name of the book, Mastaan stands to the central character in both the parts of the book. This book is supremely researched and only creates grandeur around the book.

Being a fast paced read with numerous characters it might be a little difficult for the first time historical-fiction readers to check on events happening. Read Mastaan- the fallen patriot of Delhi to celebrate the Indian history and to acknowledge the fact that there were thousands of other martyrs to and fro of the fighters who never came to the history books and pages.
