Hunger-Strike in Andamans

Pramod Kumar (Author)
Synopsis Hunger Strike in Andamans (Repression and Resistance of transported Prisoners in Cellular Jail, 12 May – 26 June 1933) is a well documented history of third hunger – strike by transported prisoners in cellular jail in which three participants had died during forced feeding. The repression of the transported prisoners by the colonial government and the resistance by those prisoners had stirred the lull created in the political atmosphere of India after the suppression of the Gandhi’s salt Satyagraha movement. Dr. Pramod Kumar has successfully attempted to recreate the dreaded scenario on the basis of both the official documents available in India and London, and the testimony of the participants in the historic event. The book will be of interest to common readers, historians, freedom fighters, political scientists, students and activists.
