Biography: Prof. Indra Shradhanand

Prof. Indra has breathed into the Indian politics the quality of a lofty moral fervor. He has touched politics with a spiritual emotion that has raised it from stinking ruts to a pedestal of worship.

Truthfulness is the rarest virtue in politics. Prof. Indra has never trifled with truth. He is prepared to lose a cause but never his soul. It is this splendid austerity that has made him a matchless leader.

Prof. Indra was born in 1889. His father Swami Shradhanand was the Prince of Martyrs. He was the bravest soul that ever lived in human clay. He inherited from his father spiritual fire and confident optimism.

He was educated at the Gurukul University of five years. In 1915 he received the highest degree of the Institution, Vidyavachaspati. In 1919 he started a Hind Daily "Vijaya".
