    Summary of the Book
    Calling Sehmat is inspired by a real-life incident. The author came across this story during the Kargil conflict of 1999 when an Indian army officer told him about how his mother, a Kashmiri Muslim, had married a Pakistan army officer to provide India with classified information during the 1971 war. This story has been set in India and Pakistan in 1971 and revolves around Sehmat Khan, who was born to a Kashmiri Muslim father and a Hindu mother. She is a regular, young, college-going girl when she learns that her father is dying of cancer. As part of his dying wish, he wishes to see his daughter get married to a Pakistani army officer, who also happens to be his friend’s son. Just before her marriage, Sehmat is given training in spy tactics by the members of the RAW. After marriage, she moves to Pakistan. What happens next? Will she be caught by the Pakistan Intelligence Organization? Buy Calling Sehmat online and find out. About the Author

    A prized possession

    A heart-rending tale beautifully penned down...the book leaves us gaping in awe at the power of patriotism shown by the numerous unsung heroes and heroines of war whose works though pass unnoticed but definitely leaves its mark on the heart of our motherland! We owe our freedom to them and it is so satisfying to read their stories which makes us value our independence even more...
    Though the amateurish writing is prominent at times, especially at the abrupt ending, but that is insignificant ...

    Fabulous!

    I finished reading this book the other night. But before I did that, I obviously had watched the movie. This post isn't a comparison between the book and the movie. I don't intend to pass a judgement on which one is better. The book and the movie are good in their own way and need to be looked independently. The only thing they share in common is the plot, and both have been rendered in a way the author/director deemed best. And whether you watch the movie or not, the book is definitely worth...

    Classy product

    A heart touching story. A must read for every book lover. The story is captivating from start to the end. Definitely much better than the movie as it gives an insight into Sehmat's life and gives more details about her premarital life than shown in the movie.

    Q:is the book give real details of sehmat or part of it is also fiction
    A:Sehmat herself never provided any major clues about her to the author.Names are fictional,story is real. Read this book to know a little more about her life than watching just 3 hr movie.
