This fictional story is set in December 1971 during the hostilities between India and Pakistan and is woven around an imaginary MiG 21 FL squadron based somewhere along the western border. The young pilots of ‘B’ flight 36 Squadron were predominantly from affluent, aristocratic families and public school backgrounds. A commoner slipped in amongst them and was met with collective scorn and derision. This young Pilot Officer from a suburban town in Orissa tolerated this bullying from his flight mates till he couldn’t take it anymore. He withdrew and kept to himself but even this introverted behaviour was deemed intolerable by his detractors. His supposedly accidental death a few hours before the war breaks out serves as a turning point of events.
He leaves behind a bottle of Scotch and some cryptic clues for each of his tormentors to warn them of their impending fate in the days to come. 6 clues in 6 cards for 6 fates that are to follow.
Though this is a work of fiction, many incidents that occurred during the ’71 war and in the earlier conflict of ‘65 are also woven within the plot. Historical facts leading up to the Indo Pak conflicts are also detailed in this book. Illustrations, diagrams and maps are included in the book.
