Remembering Saragarhi: Author's Interview with Jay Singh-Sohal

Here's the latest "Remembering Saragarhi" clip.

In it, I answer the four questions that people always ask me about Saragarhi:
- What is it?
- What exactly happened?
- Why write about it
- Why was it forgotten.

In short, here's some answers from the clip:
- It's a battle of epic proportions that took place  in 1897
- 21Sikhs made a defiant last stand against 10,000 Pathans, fought and died
- Because it needs exploration through factual history
- It was overshadowed by other campaigns and eventually the Great War, but it's significance is strong
