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 Mohemmedan Anglo Oriented 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, he established a free technical institute, ?Prem Mahavidyalya? in his place at Vrindavan on May 24, 1909. He donated most of his part of his estate to the educational institutions in Aligarh and Mathura districts.

After successfully devoting his attentions to questions of social and educational reforms and other constructive activities Raja Mahendra Pratap prepared himself to take a plunge into a still higher cause of liberating India from the yoke of the British. On 20th of December, 1914, at the age of 28 he 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 read, attached his entire estate and declared him a fugitive. This historic document gives a vivid account of Raja Mahendra Pratap?s life and his activities upto 1946.

The introduction of this book gives a glimpse of his varied activities in chronological order to make it easier for the readers to understand the ideas of Raja Mahendra Pratap, the servant of mankind. This is an added advantage of this edition.
