History & Politics

This book deals with the saga of the heroic freedom struggle in Andaman Islands. Was inalienably linked to the long and glories struggle of our revolutionary freedom movement fought on the mainland and it had deep political significance in the annals of history of freedom struggle. The penal order established in Andamans by the British after the First War of independence in 1857 was the beginning of the agonising story of political prisoners in the massive and awful jails at Viper Island and other detained barracks, where many perished due to hardships. The infamous Cellular jail, based on the concept of ?Auborn? system, i.e., the solitary confinement of the prisoners was the colossal edifice has mutely witnessed the most treacherous of inhumane atrocities borne by the political prisoners for a minor lapse. The political prisoners came to ?kalapani? from various movements during freedom struggle.
