Description
About The Book

One of the greatest son of India Chittaranjan Das was fondly known as 'Deshbandhu' which means 'Friend of the Nation'. This name was given to him in 1922, long after he had proved himself a successful lawyer who defended Aurobindo Ghose in the celebrated Alipore Bomb Case (May 1908-May 1909).

Apart from his profession of a lawyer, Chittaranjan Das was also a poet at heart. He published many books of his poems and essays. The most renowned is Sagar Sangeet, published in 1913. This was translated into English language by Aurobindo Ghose titled, The Song of the Seas.

Above all this, Chittaranjan Das was a great patriot. He dedicated his entire life toward his biggest dream—to attain `Swaraj' or Self-Governance for the country; although it is disheartening to know that he did not live long enough to experience it. He was successful to some extent in this work and in order to fulfil his dream, he established the Swaraj Party in December 1922, along with Narasimha Chintaman Kelkar and Motilal Nehru. Chittaranjan Das spent his entire life helping the poor and needy.

A must read biography of a true martyr to infuse sense of dedication and devotion to the motherland.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
