Death Wasnt Painful is a true account of the experiences of a former Indian fighter pilot, who was taken prisoner during the 1971 Indo - Pak / Bangladesh Liberation War. While depicting the intrepid life of fighter pilots in active combat, the book also has an introspective side where it portrays the soldiers reactions to the terrifying realities of war. The experiences of prisoners of war are finely drawn, as we share the emotions of wardeath, alienation, loneliness and grief. Through heart-warming anecdotes and conversational passages of interactions with Pakistani interrogators, attendants, jailors and civilians, the book juxtaposes the metaphor of physical battles in the sky with the conflict of minds between two nations.
