HAR DAYAL :The Great Revolutionary
HAR DAYAL :The Great Revolutionary
Description
About the Book

' I am a revolutionary first and everything else afterwards,' Har Dayal once said. It sums up the man. He had one thought, one passion: overthrowing British rule in India. A man with extraordinary qualities of mind, he inspired a whole generation of Indians.

Har Dayal: the Great Revolutionary highlights the absolute devotion and immense sacrifice of a man who lived most of his life in exile outside India, founded the Ghadar Party in the USA, and inspired and chanelled men and arms to start a second revolt in India.

Although the literature on our first-line national leaders is vast, there is little written about our pioneer nationalists, particularly the extremists who took the risks, threw the bombs, and created mass awareness. Har Dayal: the Great Revolutionary fills in this lacunae with style, clarity, and extensive detail.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Artwork received today. Very pleased both with the product quality and speed of delivery. Many thanks for your help.
Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
