Book Description

About The Book

A great freedom fighter Nilakantha Das (1884-1967) became closely associated with Mahatma Gandhi, Dr. Rajendra Prasad, Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose and many other great leaders in shaping the political life of India. Though he had to spend much of his time in active politics, he succeeded in establishing a standard of good writing that has deeply influenced later generations of writers. In his rediscovery of the past, of the rural community of the village, in turning to the ancient Oriya folk lore, in his effort to put the spoken language on an equal footing with the classical tongue, Nilakantha inducted the young into world free from dominion of absolutism.

About The Author
