2 Aparna Basu
Mridula Sarabhai
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2003; 0195667948 / 9780195667943; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
If I had a hundred women like Mridula, said Gandhiji, I could launch a revolution in India. Born in 1911 in the illustrious Sarabhai family of Ahmedabad, she came under the spell of Gandhi and left her palatial home to join the Salt Satyagraha. She was arrested and imprisoned several times between 1930 and 1944. Deeply influenced by Jawaharlal Nehru s ideas on socialism and secularism, and a close associate of his, Mridula Sarabhai was involved not only in the freedom struggle but also in the fight for women s right to equality, in civil liberty, and in the individual s right to dissent. She worked fearlessly during communal riots to protect the rights of minorities and restore communal peace and harmony. Her work for the recovery of abducted women in Punjab in the aftermath of the Partition of India is well known. The last twenty years of her life were devoted to Kashmir and championing the cause of Sheikh Abdullah. This is the story of Mridula Sarabhai s public l if e, her work for women, for the freedom of the country, and for Hindu-Muslim unit. She was a non-conformist who did not fit into the stereotype image of the Indian woman. A rebel swimming against the tide, championing unpopular causes, she spurned offers of high office in the political arena of national government. This biography, the first account of her life, is also a page from the social and political history of modern India, over half a century seen through the life of one person. Based on Mridula Sarabhai s private papers and numerous primary and secondary sources, the book should be of interest not only to students and scholars of contemporary Indian history and politics, but to the wider public as well.
