Here’s what Author Sandeep Unnithan said about releasing his book in Mumbai. “When I wrote Black Tornado in 2014, I couldn’t think of anyone but K Unnikrishnan and Dhanalakshmi Unnikrishnan to release the book in Mumbai. Not just because they are the parents of the valiant Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan who lost his life fighting terrorists in the Taj, but also because they epitomise exemplary parents who inculcate their best values in their children and send them to be part of one of India’s finest institutions, the armed forces. It’s been over a decade since they lost their valiant son Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan but they haven’t swerved from their path of committing their lives to the memory of their departed son and to inspire thousands of others who follow in his footsteps”
