Hindu College Delhi: A People’s Movement is the first-ever illustrated history of Hindu College, Delhi, a premier institution founded in 1899. The continued struggle for doing well and survival only underlines the great commitment of its founding fathers, the teachers and the students in the early years. The college had to face several odds and a hostile administration, which feared the patriotic fervour of the college, providing a hub for the national leaders to address the youth of the country. The college groomed great nationalists ready to take on the British regime. This hostility made the college authorities more resolute to succeed. It is no wonder that the college has produced some of the most illustrious alumni who have contributed to different fields resulting in the overall progress of our country. The essence of more than three years of relentless pursuit of authentic material from individuals, libraries, archives and location visits has been finally distilled in the form of this book. Extensive research led to the discovery of archival documents, invaluable photographs and miscellaneous unknown facts about the college that were hidden in the labyrinths of time. Much of these have been presented in this book and is bound to appeal to both the older and present generation of people who are linked in some way to the prestigious Hindu College.Printed Pages: 187 with 194 colour photographs.
