Raghu Karnad's "Everybody's Friend" is a poignant pilgrimage to the military grave of a great-uncle, fallen defending the obsolescent Raj against the oncoming army of imperial Japan. The most brutal fighting unfolded on the unforgiving northeast Indian border with Burma, and Karnad takes himself and the reader deep into Nagaland to find the war graves of Imphal. There he broods without heavy reproach but with stoical sorrow on the marginalisation of memory offered to Indian troops who, in the authorised epic of Indian independence, fought on the "wrong" side for their imperial masters while the much thinner ranks of the Indian National Army, Subhash Chandra Bose's fighters, have been accorded the rites and respects of freedom fighters
