Description : Few possess greater courage, yet remain in oblivion, than the Indian PARA Special Forces. Based on more than two hundred interviews conducted in several locations including Special Forces Units near the LoC and the LAC. Equipped with the finest physical skills, trained within an inch of their lives, these are soldiers you rarely read about in the newspapers, so secretive and furtive are their missions. To them are entrusted the safety of the most perilous heights, and the darkest underbellies of terrorism. In this remarkable collection of personal tales of valour beyond measure, Swapnil Pandey lifts the curtain on some of these officers. The hair-raising tales of unimaginable bravery against all odds sets the 'Special Forces' apart. The legacy of this league of warriors, the righteous owners of the 'Balidan' badge, the Indian Para Special Forces, is shrouded half in mystery and half in attractive legend. If one tries to reach out to one of them, behind their code names--Daggers, Ghosts, Vipers, Desert Scorpios--they don't exist. Balidan is the product of more than two hundred interviews in the course of one year; of multiple trips to various Special Forces Units near the LoC and the LAC. The end result is a book that introduces the reader to the likes of Colonel Santosh Mahadik, Captain Tushar Mahajan, Brigadier Saurabh Singh Shekhawat and Subedar Major Mahendra Singh. Through the eyes of their friends and families, this book resurrects these men from the shadows of military duty for the first time.
