Heroes of the hour: Mahatma Gandhi, Tilak Maharaj, Sir Subramanya Iyer
Heroes of the Hour
SIR SUBRAMANYA IYER
GANESH & CO. MADRAS.
A time like this demands
Great hearts, strong minds, true faith, and willing hands:
Men whom the lust of office cannot kill,
Men whom the spoils of office cannot buy:
Men who possess opinions and a will:
Men who have honour, men who will not lie.
—Oliver Wendell Holmes.
|I have pleasure in warmly commending this volume to all who desire to understand the many-faced beauty and heroism of the spirit embodied in India's great men. Here are three noble Indian types, worthy of our homage and admiration. May many more such Heroes come to us, Heroes not only of the Hour but for all Time.|
