Madhu Limaye on Famous Personalities

Champa Limaye (Editor)
Synopsis This book Madhu Limaye on Famous Personalities contains a collection of articles exploring certain unknown facets of these famous personalities. The first article conveys the manner in which Gandhiji transformed political activism in India. The article on Sardar Patel communicates the core belief of the Sardar in an "ordered state" and his efforts towards establishing it in India. One article reviews affinities and differences between Mahatmaji and Netaji Subhas Bose, while another article pays homage to Jawaharlal Nehru, Mahatmaji’s heir apparent. Two articles are about Rajen Babu. One describes how he adroitly defeated Jawaharlal’s attempts to deny him the post of "the president of our republic", and the other about his contribution as well as his attempts to define the role and responsibilities of the ‘President of India". There are articles that deal with little known aspects of certain famous persons like Mohammed Ali Jinnah, Pandita Ramabai and Mahadev Govind Ranade. One section deals with obituaries or pen sketches of eminent persons like Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan, Morarji Desai, Indira Gandhi, and about Madhuji’s personal relations with many of them despite his political differences with them. Finally, one section of articles throws light on biases and limitations held by Marx and Engels. Two articles deal with developments in the Soviet Union in the years during which Mikhail Gorbachev made to transform the Soviet Union, and yet, preserve its essential unity. The common thread that runs through these articles are Madhuji’s scholarship, his deep knowledge of social reform movement and freedom movement in India, his extensive knowledge of current affairs, his deep study of views and writings of Marx and Engels, and last but the least, his ability to be objective and to view developments and personalities from a different and unusual perspective. The book should make an interesting reading for students and keen observers of politics.
