Towards India's Freedom and Partition

S.R. Mehrotra (Author)
Synopsis The history of the Indian national movement deserves to be better studied and known than has been the case so far. It was marked by a great deal of heroism and sacrifice on the part of the Indian people. It had leaders who were both brave and wise and of whom posterity can reasonably be proud. The partition of the country in 1947 diminished to some extent the glamour and glory of the achievement of independence. But even the partition was not an unmitigated evil. In fact, the partition of 1947 made it easier for the leaders and people of independent India to continue to pursue the ideals of the Indian national movement and to preserve and promote the unity of a major part of the subcontinent. The fifteen essays included in this book deal with the problems of the national movement, constitutional development and political unity in India during the period of British rule. They bring out the uniqueness both of the Indian challenge and of the British response to it.
