#Repost @nupur_flipaleaf • BOOKMAIL📚 The moment I saw this book, it immediately reminded me of the movie I saw a couple of days back, Raazi; the movie is based on a true story also inspired from the book Calling Sehmat. Sehmat is an Indian spy who is married off to a powerful army family in Pakistan to keep a track of their plans (of war or so) about India. I really liked the movie and I am looking forward to reading the book too. ✏️ Thank you @harpercollinsin for sending me something on the same lines. It is interesting to know such stories. They give you the vision of the war which was not played on the borders but still very close to it, as being a spy in itself is like jumping to the battleground, only with a hidden indentity, but still very much a soldier. Looking forward to the book very much- The Spy Chronicles RAW ISI and the illusion of peace. ✏️ . #bookmail #blackbeauty #bookcover #bookstagram #unitedbookstagram #bookstagramista #allthingsbookish #bookstagramindia
