In the last but one paragraph of your post, you have written that you had left the organisation without a formal offer letter from the company 'B'. Is this true?
If yes, then it was imprudent on your part to have left the organisation without any formal letter. In fact, under the provisions of the Indian Contract Act, 1872 "offer letter" also need not be considered as contract as such. A formal appointment letter can only be considered as a legal contract.
As you have rightly said, your situation is difficult. However, just confirm how many subordinates reported to you in your previous company. If nobody reported, then you can be considered as "workman" under the provisions of the Industrial Disputes Act, 1947. This provision makes you eligible to file a complaint to the labour office. The labour officer on receipt of the complaint will call you and understand the situation. Let us see whether he solves your problem.
If even a single subordinate reported to you then you cannot become a "workman" and under such circumstances, the provisions of ID Act, 1947 do not apply to you. Therefore, the only remedy left is to send a lawyer's notice. But then if the company that revoked your job offer, wishes to drag the case in the course then it could last for the years and attending hearing after hearing could be tiresome.
By the way, when you approach the future employers, in the interview, it is not necessary to disclose that you had resigned without acquiring a formal offer letter. Just tell that the company 'B' revoked their offer letter leaving you in the lurch.

Following are notes from the Indian Contract Act, 1872:
a) The Indian Contract Act 1872, Section 2(h) defines Contract as an agreement enforceable by law.
b) There are two essentials of this act, Agreement and Enforceability at law.
c) Section 2(e) defines agreement as "every promise and every set of promises, forming the consideration for each other."
d) Again Section 2(b) defines promise in these words: "When the person, to who the proposal is made, signifies his assent thereto, the proposal is said to be accepted. A proposal when accepted, becomes a promise."
e) Hence, it is said that all contracts are agreement, but all agreements are not contracts.
f) Section 2(g) of the Act further states that 'an agreement not enforceable by law is said to be void'.
In light of the above definitions, it can be said that all the promises are not enforceable by the law.

I got offer from B organization so resigned from organization A, when i checked with my A company about reveling me early they said you need to serve the notice period of 90 days and same was informed to Company B and they were ready for my joining on 93rd day as my 90 days was completing on Friday.
While I was serving notice period in Company A , company B asked me to work for them in the evening for 2 to 4 hours, for that i refused as it will be breach of contract with company A.
And also company B sent an email to me on my personal Id stating that I should be in office on May 1, but by that i was still serving notice period with company A
