Launch of Ian Cardozo’s Cartoos Saab.

During the 1971 Bangladesh War of Liberation a young Indian officer accidentally steps on a land mine and amputates his own limb. The story of his bravery and commitment doesn’t end there: he demands to return to active duty and proves that he is capable of leading a fighting force. The memoir of Major General Ian Cardozo is testimony to the valour, grit and loyalty of the Indian soldier.
