About the Author
Sister Nivedita, known as Margaret Elizabeth Noble in earlier life, was born in Ireland in 1867. After finishing her education, she settled down in England in the teaching profession. During this period, she happened to meet Swami Vivekananda at a London home. Greatly attracted by his teachings, she accepted him as her Master and followed him to India for dedicating herself to the uplift of Indian women.
In the Early part of twentieth century, many of the national leaders of India derived inspiration from her fiery spirit. The Nivedita girls' School, founded by her in Calcutta, stands as a monument to her efforts. She passed away at Darjeeling in 1911.
