“Vermilion Harvest,” 2023 winter release by Indignor House, is a historical fiction about forbidden, young love during the Jallianwala Bagh massacre, also known as the Amritsar massacre, that occurred on 13 April 1919. When a large but peaceful crowd of over two thousand Indians gathered at the Jallianwala Bagh in Amritsar, Punjab, British India, to protest against the Rowlatt Act and the arrest of pro-independence activists Saifuddin Kitchlu and Satyapal, Brigadier General R. E. H. Dyer had his men open fire. Dyer surrounded the Indian people with his Gurkha, Baloch and the 59th Scinde Rifles of the British Indian Army. After blocking the exits, he ordered his men to shoot, continuing to fire even as the innocent crowd tried to flee. The troops continued to fire until their ammunition was exhausted. Thousands of innocent men, women, and children were slaughtered.
Her novel, “Operation Mom,” is a coming-of-age young adult novel about a seventeen-year-old Ila Isham with serious problems. There’s the angst of being an Ali Zafar groupie, for one. Then there are the extra layers of fat she owes to her part-Punjabi roots. Add to this, parents who have separated; an enthusiastic best friend whose idea of variety is dating three guys at the same time; and her mom’s best friend, Aunty Maleeka, whose good intentions and savvy ways throw up more problems than solutions -and Ila’s got her hands quite full. When her mother flips out over her plans to stalk Ali Zafar, Ila decides she has had enough and sets out to create a few distractions to keep her mom busy. With a little help from BFF Deepali, Aunty Maleeka and Dev of the inviting chocolate-pool eyes, Ila will have to brave everything from Lagan.com and OKCupid profiles to meeting handlebar-moustache colonels and middle-aged psychos, as she tries to set up the perfect parent trap for her unsuspecting mother.
