Description
The present requires of us even greater devotion and sacrifice than the past
An independence activist and a prominent Gandhian, Rajendra Prasad was the first President of the Republic of India. He also served as President of the Constituent Assembly which drafted India's Constitution. This selection from Rajendra Prasad's speeches includes a landmark speech on the Constitution to the Constituent Assembly (1949), and two speeches delivered on 26 January 1950, including the President's swearing-in speech. An appendix includes three significant speeches Rajendra Prasad delivered soon after the Republic was formed—the Independence Day speeches of 1950 and 1951, and the speech on the first anniversary of the Republic delivered on 25 January 1951. Together, they reflect his grand vision for the formation and administration of the new nation.

Prasad was elected president of the Indian National Congress in 1934, and again in 1939, after Subhas Chandra Bose resigned from the post. He served as president of the Constituent Assembly which drafted India's Constitution over 1948 and 1949. On 26 January 1950, Rajendra Prasad was sworn in as the first President of India. He remained in the post for twelve years, before resigning in 1962. He was also honoured with the Bharat Ratna that year.

Testimonials

Hello Vipin K., thanks a lot for replacing the 4th volume of the Srimad Bhagavatam and sending me a faultless copy of the book so fast. The faulty pagination (missing and mixed up pages) is due to the bookbinding, of course, you are not to blame. Your customer service is excellent. And as your selection of books is extraordinary, I'm already looking forward to the next books that will reach me, perfectly packed and in best condition as always. ;-)
Walter
I really found this site to be very well designed, and the number of items amazing. From my careful inspection of the high resolution photos, the quality of work appears to be outstanding.
Sanjay, USA

Fantastic service! Delivery in Italy in two days!
Francesca Verna
Your custom service is great, especially Vipin. Vipin helped me locate a lost package. that was so nice!!!! I love this company. I love the cotton skirts with ruffle on the bottom. I also love how that when we place items in the shopping cart, the computer system allows them to remain in the cart until we are ready to purchase them. They don't disappear like with other on-line stores shopping cart system. Your the Best!!!
Heather Davis, USA
A true treasure vault of Bharatiya samskruti knowledge books! Thanks for this service.
Shashikant, USA
Very nice website, easy to use. Your one of the few Indian website that have an extensive collection of CD's that will ship to America.I think Indian website should expand themselves into the global community China sure has. China's market growth had to do with supply and demand. The same thing could happen to India, you just have to open the doors of India and let it happen. At least you seem to be doing that.
