About The Book

An important personality in Bengal, during the time of the noncooperation movement, Deshbandhu Chitranjan Das started the boycott of British and other western dresses. He was elected the mayor of Calcutta Corporation and also became President of Congress. A lawyer by profession, he went on to play a very important role in Indian struggle for independence. He acquired his higher education from England. His career in law kicked off, when he successfully defended Aurobindo Ghosh in the Alipore bomb blast case. He set an example for others in adopting the hand made desi khadi garments. He later set up the Swarj Party to propagate his non-moderate views with Motilal Nehru. He also launched a newspaper, named `Forward` to spread his message to the public and fight the British Raj, but later rechristened it as `Liberty`. Deshbandhu was continuously ill, throughout his political life. But despite this, he showed spunk and unwavering determination in opposing the foreign rule. Chitranjan Das advocated the adherence to constitutional ways in order to attain independence for India. He preached communal concord and supported the cause of national education. Subhas Chandra Bose was his staunch follower. Fondly, Das was called Deshbandhu (the friend of the country).
