Bagha Jatin: Life in Bengal and Death in Orissa (1879-1915)

Prithwindra Mukherjee (Author)

Jatindranath Mukherjee (Bagha Jatin) was a legendary leader of the revolutionary movement in Bengal and Orissa in the early part of twentieth century. A formidable organizer and planner, right-hand man of Sri Aurobindo, founder member of Jugantar and Anushilan Samiti, Jatin realized early that it was futile for revolutionaries to fight the British Raj on their own. He established links with the Germans during the First World War, and was killed after a dramatic gunfight at Balasore on 9 September 1915.

This slim, exciting volume, full of rare insights gleaned from familial and archival sources by Jatin’s grandson, brings to the fore the portrait of indomitable courage and fortitude. A man who inspired millions across India, including Subhas Bose and Bhagat Singh, this heart-felt volume pays exemplary tribute to him.

Prithwindra Mukherjee

Dr. Prithwindra Mukherjee (b. 1936), after completing his schooling and higher studies from Sri Aurobindo Internation Centre of Education in Pondicherry, taught literature and languages there for eleven years. He wrote and successfully defended two theses for his doctorate: the first one in 1970, on Sri Aurobindo, in the section ‘History of Contemporary Thought’ (Ancienne Sorbonne); the second one on the ‘Intellectual Roots of India’s pre-Gandhian Freedom Movement (1893-1918)’. His multi-dimensional deduction and practices cover a wide gamut of fields of activity: teaching Indian philosophy and history of Civilization at two universities in Paris; collaborating with Jean Filliozat (Professor of Indology at the College de France), Preparing a catalogue of Bengali manuscripts preserved at the Bibliotheque Nationale, etc. He went to the United States as a Fulbright scholar and after his return in 1981, joined the Department of Ethnomusicology at the National Centre for Scientific Research, Paris. For nearly twenty years, Dr. Prithwindra Mukherjee has worked on a project investigating ragas of Indian music. His works on Musicology have earned him an obvious reputation among specialists of Indian Musicology. There also stand to his credit about fifty books, a considerable number of papers and contributions, a dozen LPs and CDs, and a few documentary films in collaboration with Laurent Venot.
