akattorer-chithi-pdf book download and review:
Our liberation war still depends a lot on books. Even after such a war of independence derived from the great philosophy and the desire for total liberation, we do not seem to have the slightest point of the liberation war-dependent consciousness of the common people of the country. We are not entirely detached from the consciousness that needs to be deeply rooted.
Many things can be mentioned as the reason for this. The biggest reason for me seems to be that the space for our liberation war is very narrow, we have never been able to practice the liberation war properly as a nation. Distortion of history is also one of the reasons. It is only natural that nationalism will be in crisis if history does not stand tall and right. The history of this country belongs only to the rulers. History is still bound by religion, caste and group. The consciousness that is supposed to flourish through little by little practice is confined to the dark cell today. But the pre-independence situation was not like that. People were aware of the rights, people knew where his release was.
The book “Letters of the Seventy” does not contain much history. However, in the lines of the book, it is written about liberation, it is written about the struggle for liberation. It is written about the philosophy and passion that is needed to get rid of the stigma of subjugation. You just have to be more discriminating with the help you render toward other people.
The letters have to be read in order to find the emotion, the consciousness that can take a tall young man to the battlefield. When you finish the letter and read – a few days after the letter was written, the man knowingly sacrificed his life to liberate the country from the invaders, then your mind will be sad. You need this sadness.
Excerpts from the book —

You wrote me to come home. That is not possible at the moment. But I hope to be able to come home early next month. Bless me without worrying. Greet my father. Hey little ones.
One of your hundreds of revolutionary young children
