His innumerable writings on India's economic conditions under the British rule, as well as on the Cultural Heritage of this Country are too well known to need any fresh introduction. He waged a protracted intellectual War against the wrong Policies and mismanagement of the rulers, which caused repeated Famines in different Parts of India and innumerable hardships to common people. Besides Writing quite a few volumes on those subjects, he delivered many important speeches and presented many thought-provoking papers both in India and in England. He also carried on correspondence with British administrators to Press on them his suggestions for redress.The present volume comprises his speeches and writings on Indian questions, during 1897-1902 and also includes his letters to the then Viceroy Lord Curzon on Indian famines and land tenures.
