September 30, 2021
During India’s struggle for Independence, many poets and writers wrote revolutionary pieces of literature which were banned by the British Government of India, as these writings were considered ‘dangerous’ to the ‘security’ of their rule in India.
These unique collections, representing the feelings, aspirations and resolves of our freedom fighters, are available in various Indian languages, such as Bengali, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Marathi, Odia, Punjabi, Sindhi, Tamil, Telugu and Urdu.
This series brings to you some representative pieces from these proscribed publications being recited by prominent personalities.
