Praise for the book
 

.

Have the Pakistanis ever thought that brothers are killing brothers during the wars? The Indian and Pakistani Armies have Punjabis from both the sides of Punjab. Only their religions differ! More than anything else, the Punjabis of Pakistan and India are products of the same genes.

I understood this after reading the novel March on to Tololing. It reminded me of the famous war novels – Battle Cry (Leon Uris), War and Peace (Leo Tolstoy), For Whom Bell Tolls (Ernest Hemingway), Helmet for my Pillow (Robert Leckie) and many others.

This is first of its kind and I am sure that readers will enjoy reading it.
