 DESCRIPTION

The Encyclopaedia of Great Men of India who effected and changed the socio-economic and religious life of the people not in towns, but also in the far-flung areas of rural India. Their way of life and practices brought about a change in the hearts and minds of millions of their followers. If we take up the life of any great man, we are so much impressed by their deep knowledge and philosophy of life.

Undoubtedly their philosophy of life was so deep and impressive that the spontaneous charishma of these great men brought about a generation having belief in pious life and helpful temperament. It was responsible for the creation of a bold and fearless society tinged with significant social temperament. Thus these great men left behind them a rich legacy which would be a proper guide line for their millions of followers.

The Encyclopaedia of Great Men of India contains the works, speeches and writings of Lord Mahavira, Gautam Buddha, Swami Dayananda, Guru Nanak Dev, Sant Vinoba Bhave, Raja Rammohun Roy, Swami Vivekananda, Rabindra Nath Tagore, Mahatma Gandhi, Dr. B.R. Ambedkar, Jawaharlal Nehru, Lal Bahadur Shastri, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, Subhas Chandra Bose, Lala Lajpat Rai, Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya, Lokamanya Bal Gangadhar Tilak, Dr. Rajendra Prasad, Dr. Syama Prasad Mookerjee, Jayaprakash Narayan. They were great men and social reformers par excellence. Indeed they played a most dominant role in the annals of the Indian sub-continent. They propagated several developmental schemes having deep bearing on the numerous aspects of socio-economic and religious life of a common man. They had their social innings in the past few centuries and we find that their achievements were marvelous in every respect.
