      A first person, non linear narrative that juxtaposes the realities of two different times one, when the narrator was a student at a Sainik school in the year of the Operation Blue Star, and two, the present, when the wounds of those who had faced the brunt have healed, as some believe My best guess of the author s intention is to expose the permanence of the shadows of those wounds, memories that have been haunting him ever since, pains he needs to shed The book, for him, is the medium His catha [...]

      Amandeep s perspective of a young boy with torn loyalties is a fresh one In addition to his first hand experience, his research about what happened in Delhi during 1984 and its aftermaths is quite detailed and impressive I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in knowing about 1984 The protagonist is a homosexual and the author has not subdued any details of the protagonist s life, which was a bit of a spoiler for me Although a supporter of the of homosexuals rights, I found it a littl [...]

      Set in the riotous aftermath of Operation Blue Star, Roll of Honour creates a realistic, touching, chilling portrait of historic events entering the microcosm of a military school in Punjab Young Appu s world is off its hinges when he returns for his last year before graduating In addition to Appu s immediate experiences, the older narrator comments with a strong voice and hindsight Roll of Honour is a story about finding truth and coping with the past, as much as it is young Appu s struggle wit [...]

      Roll Of Honour is the second novel by writer Amandeep Sandhu It is a work of fiction that is part autobiographical, much like his first novel Sepia Leaves.The story proceeds as two alternating timelines a style that I have personally always liked , both narrated by the protagonist Appu One is in the past, in the year 1984 and covers the last year of school The other is in the present or near past where Appu is a grown man The first timeline is a description of the life of a Sikh cadet in a milit [...]

      Definitely one of the best books by an Indian writer, I have read in the recent past The writer gives us a honest, unabridged, impartial account of what a young mind could have gone through at such turbulent times and Appu is reflection of youth when their secure world as they know it is threatened, beliefs shattered and a near one taken away for a reason they cannot comprehend Full review wp p2DEiS IV
