In this book the Indian freedom struggle has been covered from 1876 (the year Surendranath Banerjea laid foundations of the freedom movement) to 1947. An unconventional method has been adopted insofar as the text has been built not on a succession of events in their chronological sequence, but from person to person, through profiles of individuals whom the author calls `the pathfinders`. The profiles are a wide sweep of history in their depth and meaning, evaluating the triumphs and failures of individuals, the actions of some, inadvertently, contributing to India`s partition in 1947.
