DESCRIPTION The millions of Indians are dumb ? But the press gives them a tongue? Kristo Das Pal, 1838-1884 ?Again and again has India asked ?Which way lies salvation? In the dim past, it was the obstinate questioning of the individual soul?. In the living present it is the tortured cry of the soul of India? Chittaranjan Das, 1870-1925 ?I advise you to be faithful to party, but always put the nation above it? Srinivasa Sastri, 1869 ? 1946 The English creations of eminent Indian during the British Raj contain hidden treasures. The book digs them out of their unmerited obscurity and anthologizes some thirty-eight of them for their extraordinary richness as literature, political philosophy and as source material for history. In addition, it is the first time ever history of Indian eloquence in English. It is of interest of the initiated and the scholarly as well as to the assorted crowd of readers who peer into a book of pleasure. CONTENTS Dedications, Acknowledgements, Preface PART 1 ?
