The Story of India's Freedom Movement by Nayantara Sahgal is the incredible, awe inspiring and stirring story of India�s struggle for freedom. When the entire Indians rose as one, to fight against the inequality and oppression that the British imposed on them, it became history�s most inspiring story.
India, termed the brightest jewel in the Emperor�s crown, was in effect, a country reeling under the unbearable burden of unjust laws, harsh taxes, and countless restrictions. When at last Indians, arose under the able leadership of certain dedicated, selfless and remarkable men and women, they were determined to knock over the yoke of the alien power; in the process, their struggle became a saga of amazing bravery, fortitude and truthfulness.
The history of India�s freedom struggle is a hitherto unprecedented happening in which the ordinary mundane people of this land brought the mightiest of all modern empires in the world, to its knees. And the weapons they used were the forces of ahimsa and satyagraha. In this highly charged account, the author describes the many twists and turns that inevitably led to such a situation, filled with the leaders, the gentle revolutionaries, followed by teeming masses, the awfulness of repression and the moment of triumph, when the whole of India and Indians eventually made their meeting with destiny. As a lucid and detailed description by a leading writer of the country, this book effectively covers every significant detail of India�s freedom movement, thereby informing and inspiring the future generations.
