He did his higher studies in United States. After returning to India, JP joined Indian National Congress on the invitation of Jawaharlal Nehru in 1929. Mahatma Gandhi was his mentor in Congress. During independence movement, he was arrested, jailed, and tortured, several times by the British. He won particular fame, during Quit India movement.
