About the Book:

Raja Mahendra Pratap was born (1886) in the Hindu family of Mursan and was married (1902) to a Sikh family of Jind. He got his education under British Headmasters and Muslim teachers all from Mohammedan Anglo Oriental College Aligarh founded by Sir Sayyed Ahmad Khan. With this background he shaped into a true representative of secular society and got fully equipped to break the fetters of conversativism. To bring India at par with European Countries, Raja Mahendra Pratap established a free indigenous technical institute, ?Prem Mahavidyalya? in his palace at Vrindavan on May 24, 1909. He was a patriot who turned Swadeshi, and tried sincerely to liberate his mother land.

On 20th of December, 1914, at the age of 28 Raja Mahendra Pratap left India for European countries to liberate India from the clutches of the British colonial rule with outside support. He had become a big menace there for the foreign rule in India. The British Government of India declared a reward on his head, attached his entire estate and declared him a fugitive. Raja Mahendra Pratap tried his best to utilize the world war situations to free India. On 1st of December, 1915, he established the first Provisional Government of India at Kabul in Afghanistan during First World War and formed the Executive Board of India in Japan in 1940 during Second World War.

Raja Mahendra Pratap was a man of grand vision, who devoted his entire life to the service of mankind. This life-long revolutionary wanted to bring radical change in the society and world order. Raja Mahendra Pratap was a dedicated journalist and a prolific writer who wrote a large number of books on varied topics.
