Product Description

Gayathri Ponvannan's first book, Time Racers, was published by Puffin India in 2016, and her second book, Unstoppable, was published by Hachette India in 2019. She has also written for several newspapers, anthologies and magazines. Gayathri holds an MSc in Creative Writing from the University of Edinburgh, and is currently working on two more books for children, as well as a work of historic non-fiction.

The year is 1943 in British India . . .

Kayal is a 16-year-old freedom fighter who takes part in marches, burns British goods and sabotages trains-all without the knowledge of her law-abiding family. So, it comes as quite a surprise when Kayal discovers that her aunt Uma is a soldier in the Azad Hind Fauj, the all-volunteer Indian National Army from Southeast Asia led by Subhas Chandra Bose, which aims to free India!

By what Kayal considers a huge stroke of luck, Uma agrees to take her along to a recruitment camp in Burma. Suddenly, the war, which had once seemed a distant thrill, now becomes a horrific reality.

Packed with adventures of teenagers as they join military boot camps, and set off on the most exciting journey of their lives, The Vanguards of Azad Hind is an ode to the Azad Hind Fauj and its women's unit, the Rani of Jhansi regiment, whose soldiers proved to be trailblazers with their feisty passion to fight for India's freedom.
