About The Book

The great national leader of the first generation, Sir Pherozeshah Mehta was a political leader, activist and a leading lawyer, who was knighted by the then British Government in India for his service to law. His political ideology was, as was the case with most of the Indian leaders of his time, moderate and was hence not directly opposed to the crown`s sovereignty, but only demanded more autonomy for Indians to Self-rule. He contributed to many social causes for education, sanitation and health care in Bombay and around India. He was one of the founders of the Indian National Congress and its President in 1890. As its president, he presided over Indian National Congress session held in Calcutta. He was nominated to the Bombay Legislative Council and later a member of the Imperial Legislative weekly newspapers, which became an important nationalist voce of its time and an important chronicler of the political upheavals of a volatile pre-independence India. He was Known as "Loin of Bombay". He was nicknamed Ferocious Mehta.
