ABOUT THE BOOK
With Mahatma Gandhi's call to the British to Quit India, the city has
become a hotbed of revolutionary activity-student protests, secret
magazines and even an underground People's Radio which
broadcasts news that the British want concealed.
Sakina and her friends Zenobia and Mehul desperately want to be part of
this struggle for freedom. But there is little that they are permitted to do.
But at least, they are trying to do something useful, while their mothers
are only running a cooking club ...
The Songs of Freedom series explores the lives of children across India
during the struggle for independence.
