The Biography of Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Narayan is the brief life sketch of a great revolutionary and freedom fighter who not only worked with Mahatma Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru to win the freedom of India but also worked with the great revolutionaries and socialists like Dr. Ram Manohar Lohia.
JP was a staunch Marxist but joined the freedom movement with Indian National Congress on the invitation of Jawaharlal Nehru. He was also engaged in many revolutionary activities and even raised the ‘Freedom Brigade’. He was arrested many times and spent many years of his life in various jails of India.
He differed with the Congress on the matter of Partition of India and ultimately parted ways with the Congress to form the Praja Socialist Party. Later, he left active politics and joined the ‘Bhoodan Movement’ of Acharya Vinoba Bhave and Sarvodaya work.
In the late 60’s and 70’s he was again active in mass movements in Gujarat and Bihar. He was again arrested during the ‘Emergency’ promulgated by Indira Gandhi.
The inside pages consist of an inspiring account of his life—how a humble village boy of Bihar rose to become a ‘Lok Nayak’ or ‘The People’s Hero’ of India.
