Their bravery, humanity, dynamism and simplicity encourage us to believe that within all of us, lies the untapped power to change, awaken and inspire the generations to come.

Preface

NATION-building is a long drawn-out process. A nation can be compared with the human mind. The mind is impacted upon by various kinds of influences, which are sometimes similar, at times complement each other and mutually contradictory at some other point of time. Nation-building is not done by a few prominent personalities, but it is the nation which shapes these personalities. Indeed, once moulded, the personality itself exercises its own impact on the nation. The biggest force that creates history is the people. Great men are those who guide the people on to the path of progress. Though the loftiest thoughts lie dormant in books, the colossal personality of these figures transforms these ideas into a vehicle of change.

This collection comprises life-sketches of such great personalities of India, whose thoughts not only influenced the society during their times but are a source of inspiration for the country even today. All these great names are indelibly associated with the honour and identity of our country.
