Harinder Sikka’s ‘Calling Sehmat’ makes an amazing read. Published by Penguin Random House, it is set to reach the readers early next week. Calling Sehmat is a gripping story of a Kashmiri Muslim lady who sacrificed herself and her family for the sake of her beloved country, India.
It took eight years of toil, research and few trips to Pakistan for Mr. Sikka to research and compile the story of this amazing lady based on whom a beautiful film titled ‘Raazi’ has just been released.
Even as the book is based on an espionage, it yet spreads the essence of peace, love, harmony and patriotism. The book goes into details on how Sehmat made inroads into the Pakistani brass and left them in tatters. In the process, she saved thousands of lives and left her mark with the Indian intelligentsia.
Mr. Sikka faced numerous challenges and took enormous risks in tracing her course in order to link together limited data into an amazing book. It’s a saga that needs to be read for it fills the heart and minds of all Indians with pride.
