Fascinating listen

Beautifully written and narrated by two young teenagers, Aarush Kumbhakern and Ayur Pulle, this is a wonderful insight into the history of Indian Independence. Suitable for young and old alike, it brings to life some of this mesmerising history, accompanied by lovely Indian music. Highly recommend.

Captivating and concise history of independence

I really enjoyed this beautifully narrated history of India's independence. Being somewhat ignorant to the wider context and even some of the key events during the struggles, it helped me put things into a chronology and made me want to delve further back into the history of the region, as the narration provided a clear and highly engaging account of events.

Would highly recommend!

Amazing Audio Book - Must Listen!

Very interesting audio book – while I have read Indian history, there was a lot of new information. Very clear narration and they keep your interest alive for an hour – perfect length for an audible book. Highly recommended!

Excellent articulation of the history of Independence

Being a 10 years old British Indian in London, I have learnt a lot by simply listening to this audio book. Ayush narration was excellent and made my listening very interesting. I definitely recommend my age group to listen to this audio book and learn the history of Indian independence in a quick & easy way. My dad also told me that this audio book has got great summary for anyone to learn the history of Indian independence.

Eloquent and Concise

The young authors and narrators voices and narration style complemented each other’s perfectly. A very refreshing brief but factually accurate retelling of important historical events. The story format is brilliant!
