"Waging a Silent War" covers the heroic story of a family caught up in the grip of revolutionary fevour that overtakes pre independent India in the 1940s. The story, a throwback to the past, is narrated by members of the Talukdar family, each episode dealt with by one of them, the prime discovery having been unfolded by the surviving matriarch, Julie Talukdar, who makes a final trip to the Ballygunj ancestral home along with her three children, Tanu Tara and Abhi, before it is put up for sale.A Virtual Pandora's box opens up when they discover the 'shinduk', an iron box, which lies abandoned in the house with its mysterious contents. It is an eye opener for the three: from its contents - sepia tinted letters, notes and a diary whose pages are rusted with age - they discover an astonishing world, a bygone era, where loyalty, treachery, courage, war and romance all take centre stage.Printed Pages: 240.
