Hindustaan, by Mainak Dhar, is a book that delves into the question - what if the British had never conquered India?
Summary of the Book
Delhi, 1857 - the Mughal Empire is preparing to rejoice the hundredth anniversary of its conquest over the British. But the Empire is thrown into sudden commotion when the Emperor is killed in a bloody rebellion by three unlikely companions, who find themselves brought together by fate. Ranveer, a young officer in the top Mughal cavalry, who is now hunted by the Empire he once served, is the first rebel. Theo, an English traveller with a secretive past, and Maya, a stunning Princess rescued by the Ranveer and Theo, are the other two rebels. Battles with Afghan attackers, rescue missions in remote forts, joining an alliance of rulers who band together against the new tyrannical administration to protect their independence, and then back into the heart of Delhi for a dramatic conclusive mission that will determine not just their fate, but that of all of Hindustaan, are the thrilling episodes to follow in this book.
