Sarojini Naidu's biography is inextricably interwoven with the personalities and public events of her time. Sarojini's interests and passions were many: books, poetry, people, conversation, food, gardens, folklore, handicrafts and travel. As a poet, she had perhaps the finest ear among Indians for the English language. As a speaker, she impressed the most sophisticated audiences. As a political worker, her courage and conviction embarrassed her detractors. The author offers the reader in this book what is probably the most balanced, extensively researched and compact study of Sarojini Naidu's life, work and poetry published so far.
