Description

This is a well-documented set of a hundred short biographies of people who have left their footprints on the sands of Indian history, in different ways.

The figures included lived in the last two hundred years, and are no longer alive. Included are persons from almost every field of activity-writers, artists, scientists, social reformers, educationalists, politicians and freedom fighters. Several Britishers who spent a major part of their adult lives in India and contributed in a major way to the country are also included.

This is a unique volume for all those interested in the larger-than-life figures in India’s turbulent history over the past two centuries.
