ABOUT THIS BOOK

Poet, nationalist, freedom-fighter, and the first woman to become the Governor of a state in independent India, Sarojini Naidu (1879-1949) was one of the most colourful and dynamic personalities of her time. She was not only closely associated with Mahatma Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru, but became, in 1925, the first native woman to become the President of the Indian National Congress. This volume, the only authoritative selection of her works, comes with a revised and extended Introduction, which not only places the poet???s life and art in its context, but provides a new way of understanding her significance and achievement.
