Prior to the advent of the British Empire, Nagaland was a free and independent nation, free from the shackles of alien invasion. However, when the British left India, Nagaland was thrown into the covetous hands of India who invaded her, using force and claiming rights over the land and its people. Atrocities and inhuman treatment meted out to its citizens forced the Naga National Council (NNC) and the Federal Government of Nagaland, to resort to arms, in order to liberate her people and the land from the clutches of a foreign grip.
India sent her mighty armed forces to quash the Naga Army that was fighting for its legitimate and inherent rights. Those highly disciplined Indian Armed Forces executed in spirit, the principle of “all is fair in love and war:” many Naga women were raped and tortured to death. Nagaland soon became another battlefield that had been soaked with the blood of many a thousand soldiers from both armies.
Later, the Federal Government of Nagaland commissioned a batch of Naga Army on a diplomatic mission to China, to seek their help in recognising the sovereignty of Nagaland as a nation.
The 312 brave men of the command displayed an inimitable gallantry and actions above and beyond the call of duty. Outsmarting the Burmese Armed Forces in over twenty gunfights and battles in their own terrain, the Nagas accomplished the Mission and reached home victorious, to find out they were deceitfully betrayed.
With years of research and written with passion; read how these brave men including the author’s father, went on a mission of love for their country and family in The Lost Mission.
