About the Book

The Partition of Bengal in 1905 and its annulment in 1911-12 are landmarks in the history of India's struggle for freedom. The partition led the people of Bengal to protest against the arbitrary and motivated decision. The protest went through three phases: meetings and memorials, constitutional boycott, and terrorism. Bengali sentiments were sought to be placated by the eventual revocation of British India was moved to Delhi from Calcutta to check the furore of Bengal militancy.

This volume brings together a selection of texts, including the relevant government resolutions and proclamations; memorials and resolutions adopted at public protest meetings; historic lectures and addresses by Lord Curzon, Sir Charles Tegart, Abdur Rasul, Surendranath Banerjea, Rabindranath Tagore, Bepin Chandra Pal, Krishnakumar Mitra; essays, comments and editorials in newspapers of the period - and in The Bengalee, Bande Mataram and Yugantar, three major contemporary organs of protest. It offers readers a direct feel of the pulse of the times; and allows social scientists, historians and scholars to study closely the beginnings of the communal divide that led to the second Partition of 1947.

Hello, Just a short feedback on your new website layout: the old one was better than most of what you come across on the www, but you've managed to make it even better. I very much like the new look of the book pages and 'my gallery' pages. Thanks again for offering me a look inside the books. It's a big help for finding out if it's really what I want. Everything is perfect: the presentation of the items, your way of handling the orders, and the fast and always diligently packed parcels. Thanks to all at Exotic India, Walter

Exotic India is a fine organization to do business with. I have had the best trading experience and the very best customer service. The communication I have had with Vipin K. is of the highest quality; my questions and requests were quickly and professionally answered and fulfilled. A special thanks to the artist Kailash Raj for the beautiful art he produces; I have certainly been enriched by the way his art exemplifies the stories they tell. Many Thanks to all concerned.

An excellent website, as always. I do not even mention its content, which is beautiful beyond words, but I am merely referring to the great functionality and optimal design of your website. Links always work, the information is accurate and complete, images are very clear, including scanned content of your books. A pleasure to purchase from you.

I just wanted to extend my profound thanks to you for expediting my order. It was so well packaged and all import processes taken care of so the beautiful statue arrived in fabulous condition. It looks truly wonderful and I am so happy to have Lord Ganesh take pride of place in my home. Thank you again for your superb service. Best regards
