A BIOGRAPHY OF BHAGWATI CHARAN VOHRA AND DURGA BHABHI by MALWINDER JIT SINGH WARAICH

Bhagwati Charan Vohra and his wife Durga  were compatriots of Bhagat Singh. Lovingly called Bhai and Bhabhi, they were a comfortably-off couple who still left all the comforts and jumped into the Indian freedom struggle. While Bhagwati died a gruesome death when the bomb that he was testing accidentally went off, Durga continued the struggle even in free India. This book is not so much a biography as a collection of extracts from other books and anecdotes and recollections. It is worth a read but the couple deserve something much better.
