About The Book
"A freedom fighter's account of India's struggle for independence.
How the British came to India, slowly penetrated the sub-continent and established an empire is a story recorded by many historians but not fully told...
The early British historians tried to play down the role of their countrymen in subjugating the native kingdoms in India by all means. It was left to a few diligent historians to carry out painstaking research and unravel the facts. Pandit Sunderlal, who wrote this sensational book originally in Hindi in 1929, vigorously exposed the British plan to enlarge their sphere of influence in India slowly and steadily through a number of dubious methods. Apart from revealing the state of affairs between the Indian native kingdoms and the East India Company, How India Lost Her Freedom provides a fine account of what India was prior to the advent of the British. The book focuses on the crucial facts and events that led to the establishment of British rule over India. "
About The Author
"Pandit Sunderlal was an eminent Gandhian and freedom fighter. He was originally a revolutionary and belonged to the famous Ghadar party. After coming in close contact with Mahatma Gandhi in the early 1920s, Pandit Sunderlal became a Gandhian and a practitioner of non-violence and Ahimsa. He represented the holistic evolution of a revolutionary to a Gandhian believing in non-violence and worked closely with Mahatma Gandhi in Sevagram Ashram, Wardha. He was imprisoned seven times for participating in the Indian freedom movement.
Pandit Sunderlal founded the Hindustani Culture Society in 1941. He was part of a goodwill mission to the erstwhile Hyderabad state in 1948. He was President of the All India Peace Council during 1950-62 and President of the India-China Friendship Association. He pursued three key missions throughout his life- promoting the essential unity of all religions, promoting communal harmony between Hindus and Muslims, and promoting and practising the composite culture of India.
Pandit Sunderlal's original work in four volumes, entitled Bharat Mein Angrezi Raj, was published in 1929, banned by the British, and republished when the ban on the book was lifted. In 1941, he published Geeta aur Quran simultaneously in Hindi and Urdu. This book has been translated into many languages. He authored more than 40 books. Pandit Sunderlal launched Karmayogi in 1909. He was editor of Swarajya, a Hindi weekly in the early part of the 20th century."
