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.

Testimonials

I have purchased many books from your company. Your packaging is excellent, service is great and attention is prompt. Please maintain this quality for this order also!
Raghavan, USA
My order arrived today with plenty of time to spare. Everything is gorgeous, packing excellent.
Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
Chitra, United Kingdom
