Thousands of innocent people were trapped in the cross-fire when the Indian Army launched an attack on Sri Darbar Sahib (Golden Temple) of Amritsar in June 1984. The human tragedy of innocent pilgrims has been given scant attention and the political rights or wrongs of this army assault still take centre stage. This audio drama hopes to raise awareness about the human tragedy of the attack.
The drama is a fiction based on real events. Harjinder Singh wrote the script. Eshmit Kaur produced and acted in the drama.
Telling the inside story of ordinary men, women and children who found themselves living through one of the sub-continent’s darkest days, the story focuses on Satwant Kaur who has travelled on pilgrimage to the Darbar Sahib with her family. There, caught in the week-long invasion, she witnesses the deaths of loved ones, and suffers for years to come as a result of the trauma that came with being a civilian trapped in the complex.
