There are various awards for acknowledging the talent people have in different areas. All the awards have a history and story behind them.

Chaitanya, who has tried to share insights on a few of such famous awards in his book, “Immortal Warriors: Based on True Stories.” The book is highly informative and written in an interesting form that serves the dual purpose of educating the readers as well as discussing issues that would make them think.

Chaitanya explains that the bravery awards are not just to sing the praises of anyone’s achievements, it is rather an acknowledgment of the exceptional courage that they show and have put across. Many children win the national bravery award for their wins in the fight against wild animals, terrorists, or natural disasters. Improvising and thinking quickly under circumstances that they are not even prepared for is what shows their courage, and this is acknowledged through the awards. The author has shared inspirational stories for all the awards with the right number and type of words in the book.
The author explains the special significance of every award and how it individually aims to acknowledge and encourage the receivers to continue with what they do. “Immortal Warriors” also inspires the readers to inculcate the values of courage and dignity and bring their children up with the same thought and mindset. Side by side the author also talks about the historical background of the awards and explains how they came into existence. This is like a refresher for the readers who may have some knowledge about them and may not be entirely aware of it. Not just the origin, history, and story behind the awards, the author has also written the selection procedure, the process of applying, the age limit, additional benefits, and such aspects of the award in the book in a detailed manner.
The book has a fantastic title, immortal warriors, which is interesting and creates a question in the mind of a reader as to what the book would be like. The cover of the book looks suspenseful at first glance because it is designed well with appropriate colour combinations. The title sends the readers’ minds in different directions, and they wonder what Immortal Warriors will find mentioned in R. Chaitanya’s work.
