Thagi By Sripantha Pdf Book Review:
In 1822, when William Henry Sleeman, a civil servant of British India, was returning to Jabbalpur with a large group of pilgrims, no one knew that Sleeman was not returning with the pilgrims, he was returning with history!
Due to his excessive interest in thugs, he became the butt of jokes among his peers called “Thug Sliman”. He did not listen to it. He uprooted the most well-organized murder cycle in the subcontinent. The story of Sliman going from “Thug Sliman” to “Firingi Thug” is very exciting!
They are called the most skilled, the most violent, the most violent murderers in the world. But their killer team will say who can do it!
Railways have not yet emerged in India, you have to travel on foot or on horseback!
Seeing these people with innocent calm faces, worn-out clothes, other ordinary passengers thought they were ordinary passengers. The two teams have planned to walk together for fear of danger on the way!
But they do not know that they are carrying this warning with the Jamduta himself for fear!
From rogue leaders like Roshan Jamadar, Rustam Khan, Enayet, Durga, it is known that the corpses of thousands of people lost in that era are lying in hundreds of graves under the green gardens across the vast area of this subcontinent! Some of them hanged 600, some or 700 people. It is very unfortunate that the number of his murders is not less than 50!
As a child, I saw a towel of thugs in a movie in Feluda. It was there that I first heard the names of thugs. Then all that was known was very little, “thugs hide behind bushes, then when someone goes by the road, they kill him with a towel wrapped around his neck and run away with everything”.
That’s all I knew about the thugs!
They did not reside in any specific area of India, they were organized all over India. One, not two, they would campaign to become a bigger team, sometimes the number of members would exceed 100! The only weapon they had was a magical yellow handkerchief!
They walked the streets in the guise of pilgrims or merchants, gaining the trust of true pedestrians and walking with them. Day after day, mile after mile!
Then when the “bug” came, “Jhirani” would rise! The whole merchant would have been lost in the yellow handkerchief! Innocent people would then become the worst murderers, to whom the killing was ordered by the goddess!
Sripanth’s eloquence is the story of a group of proletarians becoming thugs. The story of how Hindus, Muslims, Brahmins, Chandals, people of so many different castes became swindlers at the behest of one goddess ‘Ma Bhabani’ has come to light skillfully!
