India's Freedom Story traces the country's extraordinary journey to attain freedom from the British.

This book brings alive the key events of the freedom struggle such as:

  • The arrival of the East India Company
  • The Great Indian Uprising
  • Gandhi's emergence as a leader
  • Salt Satyagraha
  • Partition
  • The Indian Constitution

It discusses the role of political thinkers like Raja Rammohan Roy, Swami Vivekananda, Jawaharlal Nehru, Subhash Chandra Bose, Abul Kalam Azad, Vallabhbhai Patel and Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, and recounts the true stories of courage, grit and resistance of the freedom fighters.

India's Freedom Story also explores the broader idea of freedom and what it means to today's youth.

This brilliantly illustrated book includes contemporary events from India and beyond such as the recent Black Lives Matter Movement, and also focuses on inspiring figures like Martin Luther King Jr., Nelson Mandela and Gamal Abdel Nasser, among others and newer activists such as Greta Thunberg, who used Gandhian methods to fight for their rights.

"The entire history of India's struggle for freedom comes alive in this extensively researched volume... A wonderful gift from the authors to today's children." Deepa Agarwal, popular children's author
