Fighting for Freedom in India

“The British… found novel ways to torture Indians.” So begins a paragraph in the preface to Licy Bharucha’s book, Oral History of the Indian Freedom Movement, which was released in Mumbai on Wednesday. Ms. Bharucha, former executive secretary of Mani Bhavan, Gandhi Museum, Mumbai, and scholar of peace studies and Gandhian studies, has recorded stories of India’s freedom fighters, a “fast vanishing community”, in the book. She chronicles the unrecorded history of inhuman treatment at the hand of the British, and the involvement of many families in the city in the freedom struggle.  For full story click here.
