Description

The definitive biography of free Indias first Head of State

Chakravarti Rajagopalachari (1878-1972), popularly called C.R. or Rajaji, is usually remembered as free Indias Governor-General, or the first Indian Head of State. At one time considered Gandhis heir, this brilliant lawyer from Salem was regarded in pre-independence years as one of the top five leaders of the Congress along with Nehru, Prasad, Patel and Azad.

This biography written by Rajajis grandson, the noted historian and biographer Rajmohan Gandhi, highlights Rajajis role in the events preceding Partition. A statesman and conciliator of conflicts between stalwarts, he was perhaps the sole Congress leader in the forties to admit to the likelihood of Partition. He prophesied even then that Pakistan might break up in twenty-five years!

Later, C.R. became a strident critic of Nehru and the Congress. As a founder of the Swatantra party in the fifties, he attacked the permit-license Raj fearing its potential for corruption and stagnation, even while the tide was in favour of Nehrus socialistic pattern.

Meticulously researched, using C.R.s private papers, his contemporaries archives, extensive interviews with eye-witnesses and contemporary accounts and newspapers, this intensely personal, yet objective account gives us an unparalleled portrait of one of the outstanding Indians of this century.

Writer has written objectively about Rajaji bringing out many details of his life unknown to the public at large. It works well that writer is grandson of Rajaji and knew him personally.The research and sources consulted are wide , yet the book is slim considering 93 years of life of Rajaji.The honest candour and critique makes it best book on Rajaji till date.
