About the Book

The struggle for Indian Independence is commemorated as the greatest struggle for freedom in the world. After so many sacrifices and hardships, India could attain its independence on August 15, 1947.

As it is rightly said, “We can learn from history, but we can also deceive ourselves when we selectively take evidence from the past to justify what we have already made up our minds to do”. As far as the history of India’s independence struggle is concerned, over the years, many things were elapsed, overlooked or simply omitted.

This book is a result of massive desk research done on the subject matter —The Telugu Press and Independence. Despite the fact that there are many other books available on freedom struggle of India, rarely we find any book that comprehensively discusses on the role played by the Telugu Press during the great Indian freedom struggle. In a nutshell, this book takes its lead in journalism’s standpoint.

As you start reading this book, you will appreciate the role played by the Telugu press, and the people behind it. We are confident that the book will indorse its significance. 

This book not only serves as a reference book to the students of mass communication and history, but also serves as a book of general interest to everyone.
