Kamaladevi Chattopadhyaya: A Biography (An Old Book)
Kamaladevi Chattopadhyaya: A Biography (An Old Book)
Description

About the Book:

Shrimati Kamaladevi Chattopadhyaya has blazed the trail in a number of fields such as theatre, cooperation and handicrafts. Women's liberation enthusiasts today would be hard put to find a cause which she had not championed years ago.

hard work and dedication to chosen causes have been her hallmark. She has fought for what she considered right, effusing to allow herself to be fitted into any mould or to compromise her beliefs to please anyone.

Dubbed the "supremely romantic figure" of the freedom struggle, she defied the british Government both in India and abroad, winning many spectacular victories.
The honours she refused-governorship, ambassadorship and vice-presidential nomination-would make any politicians, mouth water and her journalistic achievements have been of an order to satisfy the most demanding editor.

A Truly remarkable personality who, perhaps, more than any man in India deservers the label-"a Renaissance man".

About the Author:

I am very thankful to you for keeping such rare and quality books, DVDs, and CDs of classical music and even Dhrupad which is almost unbelievable. I hope you continue to be this good in your helpfulness. I have found books about rare cultural heritage such as Kodava samaj, Dhrupad and other DVDs and CDs in addition to the beautiful sarees I have from your business, actually business is not the right word, but for lack of a word I am using this.

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
