In the 19th century India was under British rule. It was also a land in need of social reform. This period gave rise to several movements in the country, some of them reformist, others fighting for independence. In the course of these struggles, many individuals distinguished themselves by leading the campaign for change and bringing about a new awakening in the country. In the face of great adversity they worked selflessly to achieve their objectives. Unsung Heroes is a tribute to the courage, vision, and sacrifice of some of these brave sons and daughters of India.
This volume features Mahatma Jotirao Phule, Lal Bahadur Shastri, Sarojini Naidu, Bal Gangadhar Kher, Maulana Azad, and Captain Lakshmi.
All these visionaries fought for justice and the betterment of their countrymen. Their commitment, heroism, selfless service, and compassion is an inspiration for all humanity.
