At the launch of The Wrong Turn

With Tisca Chopra and Sanjay Chopra
April 21, 2017: Today was a special book launch function organized by Prabha Khaitan Foundation in association with Hyatt Regency. The event, launch of the book, The Wrong Turn: Love and Betrayal in the Time of Netaji, authored by Namita Roy Ghose and Sanjay Chopra, was held at Hyatt’s Gucchi restaurant.
With Birgit Holm, GM Hyatt Regency and Anjan Dutta
Actress Tisca Chopra engaged the authors in a conversation delving into some of the aspects of the book. Actor Prosenjit Chatterjee was the chief guest of the event and he was joined by special guests Raima Sen, Anjan Dutta and Suvaprasanna. Anjan Dutta read out an excerpt from the book.
With R S Agarwal and author Namita Roy Ghose
The book The Wrong Turn, published by Om Publications, is a riveting saga of love and betrayal in the backdrop of Indian National Army's (INA) march from Kohima to free India from the British. It was a turning point in India's history. The books throws up many questions – What turned the tables? Was it the British and their manipulation? Was it that old Indian curse - betrayal? Someone from within Netaji's own ranks? Were there other forces, waiting in the shadows, closer to home, who stood to gain even more from the INA's defeat? Or was it that old culprit, love, that irrevocably changed the course of India's destiny?
With Raima Sen
Most of us have grown up understanding the British narrative, this book gives us an Indian perspective of what went wrong. The British had no plans to leave India, but then, INA changed things. Seventy years later, the British admit that the twin Battles of Kohima and Imphal with the INA were the greatest battle they had ever fought - even more so than the battles of Waterloo and Dunkirk.
With Nandita Palchoudhury, Madhulika Kanoria
The number of guests who turned up for the event was higher than expected and we had to put on additional chairs to accommodate them. 
With Prosenjit Chatterjee, Tisca Chopra and Namrata Surekha
Kutchina Foundation was the presenter of this event and we also collaborated with the Ladies Study Group.
I must thank Birgit Holm, general manager of Hyatt, for making the event a success with Hyatt’s hospitality support.
