When the people of India rose against oppression and inequality, they wrote one of history’s most inspiring stories. India, the brightest jewel in the Raj crown was also a land burdened with harsh taxes, unjust laws and innumerable restrictions. When Indians, under the leadership of the most remarkable men and women ever to be born, decided to overturn the yoke of a foreign power, their struggle was one of extraordinary bravery, truthfulness and fortitude. The story of India’s freedom movement is a unique tale of how the ordinar people of a country defeated the mightiest Empire in the world through the forces of satyagraha and ahimsa. In this masterful account, Nayantara Sahgal describes the twists and turns that led to this, the lives of the leaders, revolutionaries and masses, the horrors of oppression and the triumphs of the Indians as they finally made their tryst with destiny. A lucid telling by one of the country’s finest writers, this account encompasses every important detail of the freedom struggle and will inform and inspire all young readers.
