Twitter Alert: indian World war prisoner sought for by historian?

When india was still a part of the british Empire, you have surely read about its contribution to the Second World War. However, the complicated intricacies of battle history or how thousands of indian soldiers were taken prisoner by the enemy camp were not sufficiently covered in our school textbooks.

The majority of us simply have a basic understanding of leadership and wartime politics. There are very few lines that discuss the issues at the very base. However, some historians are making a lot of effort to provide people a clear image of those who history has forgotten.

Dr. ghee Bowman posted a question on twitter about an intriguing character he discovered when looking through the ominous historical chronicles of World war II in India. Before we begin the thorough investigation Dr. Bowman began, allow me to briefly describe the style of historiography he employs and how it led him to discover the forgotten figure among the soiled pages of british Empire archives.

The primary materials used in Dr. Bowman's research include speeches, interviews, letters, memoranda, diaries, notebooks, and photographs. A man named jai Lal who had been a prisoner of war during the Second World war was discovered by him.

"Can you assist, indian Twitter? I'm looking for a Second World war prisoner of war who served with the indian Army. The image below might show him. jai Lal was his name, and he was born in #Haryana's Madina village, Godhana Tehsil, Rohtak, around 90 km west of Delhi, in 1922.

The post piqued the interest of many online users. The historian also received quick responses. Others were simply captivated by the unfolding of history in front of them, while some pointed out how the man in question could be traced with a little more information.
