About the Book :

6 June 1984: The Indian Army storms the Golden Temple in Amritsar. Called Operation Bluestar, the historic and unprecedented event ended the growing spectre of terrorism perpetrated by the extremist Sikh leader Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale and his followers once and for all. But it left in its wake unsolved political questions that continued to threaten Punjabs stability for years to come. How, in a brief span of three years, did Indias dynamic frontier state become a national problem? Who was to blame: the Central Government for allowing the crisis to drift despite warnings, or the long-drawn-out Akali agitation, or the notorious gang of militants who transformed a holy shrine into a sanctuary for terrorists? First published two months after Operation Bluestar, The Punjab Story pieces together the complex Punjab jigsaw through the eyes of some of Indias most eminent public figures and journalists. Writing with the passion and conviction of those who were involved with the drama, they present a wide-ranging perspective on the past, present and future of the Punjab tangle, and the truth of many of their conclusions having been borne out by time.

About the Author :

K.P.S. Gill, as director general of police, Punjab, led one of the most successful counter-terrorist operations in the history of terrorism, bringing the state from the verge of disintegration to complete normalcy. He served in the Assam Cadre of the Indian Police Service between 1958 and 1983, handling a range of assignments during periods of extended political strife and the emergence of terrorism in that state. In the 1980s, when Punjab emerged as the most serious threat to Indias integrity since Independence, he was inducted into the state as inspector general of police [Operations] and was eventually elevated to the rank of director general of police [DGP]. In 1988, he planned and executed Operation Black Thunder, a critical success in the war against terrorism. After his retirement from the IPS, he has served as a member of the National Security Advisory Board, and of the North-East Study Group of the ministry of home affairs. He is the founding president of the Institute for Conflict Management, publisher and editor of Faultlines: Writings on Conflict & Resolution, and author of Knights of Falsehood (1997), a book exploring the abuse of the Sikh identity and the teachings of the Sikh Gurus by politicians and terrorists in Punjab.
