About the Book

1897 to 1911-the intervening years of growing turbulence in Indian history are the backdrop of nearly nine hundred letters Sister Nivedita wrote to her family, friends and acquaintances all over the world. They include princes, politicians, businessmen, newspaper al editors, poets, artists, scientists and other men of eminence. These letters were painstakingly researched and I: collected by Prof. Sankari Prasad Basu, a noted researcher and writer during his time, over a period of two decades a from Indian, European, and American sources. The letters, largely remaining unknown till Prof, Basu first published I them in 1982, throw fresh light on the history of an important age and its most representative personalities. For eager and inquisitive minds Nivedita's letters are invaluable source-material on many counts. For they reveal for the first time various unknown and startling facts about India during the Curzons, Mintos and Hardinges; draw us to the India of Vivekananda, Rabindranath and Aurobindo; and allow us a real picture of India groaning under the imperialistic I rule and yet rising to a great purpose.
