As war clouds began to loom over Ukraine, thousands of Indian students living there found themselves in a precarious situation. Some students left Ukraine in time, but many remained in the hope that there would be no war or if there was, it would not affect their studies. However, hope turned into disappointment when all students were advised to leave. Operation Ganga was a campaign conducted by the Government of India to evacuate Indian citizens, mostly students, during the war. The Government of India appealed to all the countries of Europe, the Indian diaspora, Indian embassies, the corporate world, and social and religious organizations to provide all possible support in moving Indian students back home from the troubled area. This book is the account of the sufferings of the students and their harrowing journeys, and the role of the Government of India and numerous Indians in rescuing them.

At the Parliament, Dr. Lalit Shyaam Tekchandani also strongly expressed his views and advocated the #MakeWithIndia philosophy.
