The Life & Times of Shyama Prasad Mookerjee
Prabhat Prakashan, Jun 25, 2014
Dr. Syama Prasad Mookerjee (1901-1953), second son of Sir Asutosh Mookerjee, was a multifaceted personality—educationist, patriot, statesman, parliamentarian, a person of incredible courage and a great humanitarian. In a life of less than fifty-two years and in politics for just fourteen of them, he had risen to be a Union cabinet minister in Free India’s first cabinet, and had thrown away that portfolio upon developing serious differences with Jawaharlal Nehru over the pogrom of the Hindu minority in East Pakistan. Before that he had been the driving force behind the creation of West Bengal and East Punjab by snatching these parts from Jinnah’s Pakistan. After resigning his cabinet berth he founded the Bharatiya Jana Sangh, which later metamorphosed itself into the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of today.
This volume is a well-researched and complete biography of this great son of motherland India which gives an insight into his inspiring life.
