India's Freedom Struggle and the Great I.N.A.

 
Mohammad Zaman Kiani (Author) Sisir Kumar Bose (Foroward)
Synopsis

Maj Gen M Z Kiani was officer in 1st Battalion 14th Punjab Regiment under Britishers. He won Sword of Honour and Gold Medal for the most outstanding Cadet in 1935 from Indian Military Academy, Dehradun. But he left all to join I.N.A under Netaji.

Those of us who are in the autumn of our lives, and who did their mite to get rid of foreign rule, did not envision the type of independence we have got. People want happiness and contentment which they don't seems to have. It is now upto the youth, whose future is at stake...."
