26/11 Unforgiven – By Manish Jaitly

Indic Academy announces the publication of the book “26/11 Unforgiven”, authored by retired army officer Manish Jaitly. The protagonist of this fiction is Vikrant Maheshwari, an entrepreneur in Mumbai who unfortunately happens to be at the Taj on the evening of 26/11 and ends up losing his wife and daughter to the bullets of terrorists. Fighting against all odds, Vikrant initially believes that the government will do something to avenge the death of his family and hopes for justice to be done. However, few members of the ruling party conspire to shift the blame elsewhere and shield the actual perpetrators instead. Even as Ajmal Kasab was saying that ten men who carried out the 26/11 attacks in Mumbai were Pakistani terrorists, some politicians of the ruling establishment were calling it an ‘RSS Conspiracy’. Hurt and let down by the justice system, Vikrant decides to take matters into his own hands and plots his revenge.
