Descripción

This fascinating autobiography has an immense visual appeal. The reader will be able to almost see the growth of radical parties with young boys playing with fake bombs in the village, deeply involved in neighbourhood social service, to becoming members of revolutionary parties. The action moves from the villages to the city of Calcutta before the Partition of the Subcontinent. The description of Kali Ghosh being tortured in a British-run jail will remain with the reader for a long time. He was about to be sentenced to death, but was rescued by family connections in the secret police. The book has a rare account of everyday life of prisoners in a jail. Kali Ghosh was deported and later landed in England.Printed Pages: 320. N° de ref. de la librería 101919

Sinopsis:

This is a fascinating autobiography set before the partition of the subcontinent. Kali Prasad Ghosh belonged to a zamindar or landed family in Bengal. He joined the Congress movement and later, in the 1920s, became more radical. He was brought up as an intellectual but, in the end, his interest shifted to making bombs intended to blow up British property. The narrative if that of a man looking back and trying to understand his own coming to political awareness in the 1920s and 30s. Please note: Taylor & Francis does not sell or distribute the Hardback in India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka
