Review: Lajpat Rai: Life and Work

Lajpat Rai: Life and Work Lajpat Rai: Life and Work by Feroz Chand
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Our writing the freedom struggle has so favoured the Gandhi-Nehru families that other stalwarts – even of the Congress – have been totally sidelined. One such person is the ‘Lion of Punjab’ Lala Lajpat Rai. This biography by one of his closest disciple does fill the lacuna somewhat.


First Line: Barely ten days to the opening event of the season of Christmas festivity, and, of a sudden, Sir Hugh Gough, the British C-in-C, cancels his grand ball fixed well in advance for the eleventh evening of December.
