This book describes the conditions in which an Indian grew to manhood in the early decades of the century. It is the story of the struggle of a civilization with a hostile environment, in which the destiny of British rule in India became necessarily involved. This is an extraordinary book. No other Indian self-portrait can compare, for interest or challenge, with this product of an assertive spirit.
