Sister Nivedita A Passion for India
Sister Nivedita A Passion for India
Description
Foreword

Sister Nivedita-A Passion for India is the inspiring and poignant story of a woman who fell in love with India, and served it and its people with dedication. Born Margaret Nobel in Northern Ireland, Sister Nivedita's journey of self-discovery began as a committed, though sometimes rebellious disciple of Swami Vivekananda. She followed him from London to India where she contributed immensely towards the freedom struggle, female education, awakening of arts and sciences and in instilling pride in the country's spirituality and inherent values. The hallmark of her personality was her simplicity and ability to bond with the common masses of the country, which she served till her last breath. The book is a vivid portrayal of this charismatic persona who played a significant role in India's history.

Sohinee Roy is a postgraduate in English Literature from Jadavpur University. After a brief stint as a copy editor at the Times of India, she is now pursuing her PhD in English literature at West Virginia University.

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
