The social conditions in Punjab at the outbreak of World War I in 1914 were rapidly improving and the locals were happy about the economic benefits that their farmers were reaping. When the British government sought manpower to fight their war against Germany in France Indians made themselves readily available. Within six weeks of the war breaking out, two divisions from Punjab were sent to France under the command of the British. There they fought bravely and stopped the German advance in France. After serving about 18 months in France, most of the forces were deployed in other spheres of war in the Eastern Mediterranean. Kamaljit Sood's play 'Forgotten Blood' recounts the story of the war and the subsequent treatment of the Indians in India leading to the Jallianwala Bagh massacre.
Kamaljit S. Sood is a late entrant to writing. A voracious reader, he decided to put down his thoughts in writing 'Forgotten Blood', his first play. Sood is currently working on two other plays and two novels.
