"The historic 1971 Indo-Pak war led to the creation of Bangladesh and the truncation of Pakistani territory. After a humiliating defeat, as many as 90,000 Pakistani soldiers surrendered before the joint army command and their reactions to various events occurring in the subcontinent. The book recounts of India and Bangladesh. Pakistani POWs in India relates the gripping story of these Pakistani soldiers, who were kept in special camps spread across several cities in India for nearly two years. This book is an anecdotal account of how these prisoners lived, what they ate, their routine, their recreation in detail the hard negotiations between the political leadership of India, Pakistan and Bangladesh for the repatriation of the POWs. It also chronicles fascinatingly, the many escape attempts made by these prisoners, only a few of which were successful. The author uses his first-hand experience as the commander of the 2nd Control Group of Pakistani POWs to describe how during their stay in India, these POWs came to realize that India placed premium value on secularism, that Muslims could rise to high posts and that India was not the land of barbaric infidels as they had been led to believe. India treated these POWs most honourably and in strict accordance with the Geneva Convention. Most POWs admitted that they were better looked after by India than their own country."
