An excellent account, delivered with an intuitive punch. It’s great to have a subject like this narrated in a gripping format that all will find interesting. Coming from Mr Abhay Narayan Sapru, who has seen and experienced the Sri Lankan conflict and situations surrounding it up close and upfront, ‘The Beckoning Isle’ is full of veritable moments of insights about IPKF & LTTE. The book is truly ‘beckoning’ in that sense. A must-read in current times, to get a real peek into the life and workings of our respected armed special forces and their human side. A big thank you to Mr Abhay Sapru for bringing this to us !!
