Description

About The Series

 

The object of the series is the publication of biographies of those eminent sons and daughters of India who have been mainly instrumental in our national renaissance and - the struggle for independence.

 

It is essential for the present and coming generations to know something about these great men and women. Except in a few cases, no authoritative biographies are available. The series has been planned to remove this lacuna and comprises handy volumes containing simple and short biographies of our eminent leaders written by competent persons who know their subject well. The books in this series are of 200 to 300 pages each and are not intended either to be comprehensive studies or to replace more elaborate biographies. Thong" desirable, it may not be possible to publish the biographies in chronological order. The work of writing these lives has to be, entrusted to persons who are well equipped to do so and, therefore, for practical reasons, it is possible that there might be no historical sequence observed. It is hoped, however, that within a short period all eminent national personalities will figure in this series.

Shri R; R. Diwakar is the General Editor of this series.
