The appearance of Deshbandhu Chittaranjan Das on the political firmament of India during the second decade of the 20th century, marked a new epoch in our freedom struggle. A poet, lawyer and a figure of high standing, C.R.Das wanted "Swaraj for the masses, not for the classes." He gave up a lucrative practice at the bar and gifted his entire property to the service of Nation.
Though he died young, his name will ever shine among the great builders of modern India.
The author, Dr. Hemendranath Das Gupta, who knew him personally has rendered a great service by presenting his short biography.
