About The Book

Pandit Dwarka Prasad Mishra was a notable man even in an age of protean personalities thrown up by India's cultural renaissance and epic struggle for independence. He had drawn into politics through journalism in which he had early decided to make his career. Like several contemporary Indian goaded by nationalist feeling, he soon plunged into freedom movement which was then synonymous with sacrifice and suffering. Thus from an early age his life was shaped by the high ideals then personified by Mahatma Gandhi and other great sons of Mother India.

He occupied several important portfolios in the Congress Ministry of Old Madhya Pradesh till 1951 and became Chief Minister of new Madhya Pradesh in 1960's. He was a close associate and advisor of Smt. Indira Gandhi during her early years as Prime Minister.


Pandit Dwarka Prasad Mishra was in the front rank of nationalist leaders who played a key role in India's struggle for freedom. He was one of the important leaders of Congress and took active part in the political activities, both at national level and in the state of Madhya Pradesh. He was a member of the highest policy making echelons of the Mahakoshal Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) of the Indian National Congress and played a vital role as a front line leader of the Indian National Congress in the Central Legislative Assembly. He was Local Self Government Minister and Home Minister under Pandit Ravi Shankar Shukla's Cabinet in Central Provinces and Madhya Pradesh and ultimately as Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh. He also served as Vice Chancellor of Saugor University (now Hari Singh Gour Vishwavidyalaya) for two terms.
