Barefoot Boys

Author: Konkona Luminary

In 1911, just three decades after the sport of football came to India, a group of Bengali men sent shockwaves across the entire British Empire. The Amor Ekadosh, or Immortal Eleven, competing in one of the oldest football tournaments in the world, did so without boots on their feet. Unafraid to go toe-to-toe with their colonisers, they showed a country what freedom felt likelong before its citizens were free. Konkona Sen Sharma brings the remarkable story, once erased from history, to life.
