The Gorkhas in the Freedom Struggle of India

K.K. Muktan (Author)

This book seeks to examine the role of the civilian Gorkhas, living in various parts of India such as Darjeeling, Calcutta, Benares, Dehradun and the northeastern states, in the freedom struggle of India under the leadership of Mahatma Gandhi.

It also tells the unvarnished stories about the legendary Gorkha soldiers who joined the Indian National Army of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose. It gives a vivid account of the war as to how the redoubtable Gorkhas, in alliance with the Japanese, fought against the British army in the Arakan Hillls and laid down their lives for the sake of India’s liberation from the colonial rule. A discussion on the role of Gorkhas in the Kargil war makes part of the book as well.

K.K. Muktan, a retired bureaucrat turned author, is an Indian Nepalese. His grand parents migrated from Nepal to India, as far back as 1892 and settled permanently in Assam. He was born and brought up in Tezpur in an Assamese environment, and while still in school, he joined the freedom movement and became a political sufferer. Graduating from St. Anthony’s College, Shillong, he did his M.A. in Economics from Allahabad University in 1956. He joined the Assam Civil Service (A.C.S.) in 1960 and then the Meghalaya State Civil Service (M.Sc.) ins 1975. He had held top ranking posts under the Government of Meghalaya. On his retirement from service in 1989, he fell back upon his old predilection of literary reading and writing. Having been closely associated with the activities of social upliftment, throughout his life, Mr. Muktan is deeply interested in the dynamics of Indian society. He is presently engaged in writing on the Nepalese people and society of North-east India, and already has to his credit a number of books and articles written in English and Nepalese.
