Description

How much does the present generation know about the remarkable endeavor and struggles that women underwent to bring themselves to where they stand today. This volume brings to us their struggles, aspirations and achievements.

Indian renaissance which coincided with the rise and growth of Indian nationalism and its culmination in freedom for the country, is singularly marked by the active role of a large number of women. Each of these women pioneers have, in their chosen mission, brought to it all the energy, mission and quality of service and sacrifice which lay within her. They thus not only enriched numerous other lives, but also gave shape to a modern India.

This volume brings to us their struggles aspirations and achievements. Each life sketch and memoir in this volume, bears the imprint of author’s close association with these pioneering women and hence makes it a unique document for the present and future.
