The Princely State of J&K was the largest among its 564 siblings. It had contributed immensely to the war efforts of the British and its army had won laurels in many battlefields across the globe. The British, transfixed by the dynamics of the Great Game, wanted the State to go to Pakistan. When that didn't happen, and Maharaja Hari Singh appeared to be standing firm, they evolved a plan. That plan had two sub-plans—Operation Gulmarg and Operation Datta Khel— to annexe parts of J&K. 

The British, however, knew that with the kind of soldiers that made the Dogra Army of the State, execution of plots would not be easy. It was then that they decided to play a game of deceit, treachery and betrayal. And while they almost succeeded in achieving that, their worst fears came true when the Dogra Army stood in their path that led to the seat of power at Srinagar. The British then used their influence to stir the situation in favour of Pakistan, but their dream of handing over Kashmir to Pakistan remained unfulfilled and forever!

Largely based on first-hand accounts, this story has never been told before.
