Summary of the Book
Battles for Delhi: DilliKareebAststresses the importance of preserving and strengthening the unity and integrity of India by ensuring a strong, unifying rule at the centre. This book critically examines how conditions of high unity led to a successful defence of India’s territorial integrity and how a weak, fissiparous existence led to India’s capitulation to foreign rule. It describes a series of thirteen important battles, from the Battle of Train in the late thirteenth century to the Indian War of Independence in 1857, that were fought, either successfully or unsuccessfully, to preserve the unity of India. Analysing these Battles for Delhi, the book makes a passionate plea for not taking India’s unity for granted but for continuously working to preserve and strengthen it.

Rajeev Katyal is an alumnus of IIM Kolkata, Delhi College of Engineering and St. Columba’s High School. A veteran of the Human Resource Development industry, he has over thirty-one years’ experience in the field of Education and Skill Development.
He has written, lectured and advised on various education and training forums. He is a member of the School Education Committees of the Confederation of Indian Industry as well as the Federation of Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Today he leads a chain of schools in India and Japan called the Global Indian International Schools, virtually setting up and running schools from scratch to full functionality.

Having travelled all over the world and in India, he finds no place in the world more fascinating than his own country. A man fond of intense reading and internet surfing, he finds Indian history fascinating. He is of the opinion that Indian history should be written in such a way that it develops greater national pride in young Indians and changes their perspective of India.
