The first time he wrote about his experiences was when he was, as a student, fighting for Telangana and went to jail. After more lathi-charges and arrests, student leader M Krishank of the Osmania University Joint Action Committee (OUJAC), in his second book titled No One Dies, describes about his life at present and the developments in the Telanagna agitation, taking up from where he left in his first book Do, But Don’t Die, released last year.

“My second book deals with the hardships that I faced as a student leader and the friction among students due to ideological differences,” said Krishank at Ravindra Bharathi here, where the book was launched on Sunday.

The 25-year-old, who was arrested many times since 2012, also provides details of the short time that he spent in Chanchalguda prison, where he bonded with others. “I also wrote this book to show that there has been firmness among students who have been fighting for separate Telangana state,” he said.

The young author censured politicians from the Telangana region for betraying them and leaving the fight.

In his book, Krishank also gives an insight into the suicides by students, which still continued.

The student leader also launched Facebooked Revolution, a compilation of his Facebook messages through which he managed to gain more support for the stir. “I understood the power of social networking and decided to utilise it for Telangana’s cause,” he said.

OU vice-chancellor Prof S Sathyanarayana, senior IPS officer R S Praveen Kumar, secretary to state government (social welfare), MP Vivekananda, TRS politburo member E Srinivas and others were present at the book release function.
