Amaran specifically focusses on Chapter 7 of India's Most Fearless; 'I Got Hit. I Can't Believe It' is an account of how Chennai based Major Mukund Varadarajan braved the impossible, and took down three terrorists, in the company of just one more soldier named Sepoy Vikram Singh. This chapter on the fateful Shopian encounter is recounted by Col. Amit Singh Dabbas, who was Mukund V's CO. 


Interestingly, Amit Singh Dabbas also reveals that Mukund V was known by 'Maddy' in the unit, and it was him who christened the late major with the name. "I thought he looked like the spitting image of the film actor Madhavan. Maj. Varadarajan was also from Chennai. So I called him Maddy and the name stuck", the Colonel has been quoted as stating in the book.
