Operation Polo – Hyderabad’s accession to India

History, as we know, is told by the winning side, in the way they’d choose to. During Indian independence, the military action Operation Polo annexed the princely state of Hyderabad to India, against the communists and the Nizam rule. This part of history is often not spoken about as much as we speak of the freedom movement or the partition.
