A prominent political dissident is imprisoned in a Bhutan and subjected to government mind control torture with secret electromagnetic radiation (EMR) mind control weapons. In spite of everything, he resists the ultra high-tech attack and survives, and is finally released from prison after 10 years, due to international pressure. This is his story - well-written and fast-moving.

Foreword written by Dr. Indrajit Rai, a well-known lawmaker and influential conflict/security expert, in that part of the world, who corroborates the author's account of mind control torture, surveillance, and targeting, with references to Rai's military sources from his own extensive military background. Dr. Rai describes the author as one of the "historic political personalities" of South Asia. The title of the foreword is, "Mind Control Device on Tek Nath Rizal." Dr. Rai advocates the banning of mind control weapons.

Among other things, this book discloses an admission, to the author, by a senior officer of the Indian intelligence agency, about that agency's use of covert mind control technology. Additionally, this book also discloses, for the first time, the brutal use of EMR mind control weapons on captured Kashmiri militants.
