A poignant narrative by Maulana Azad, India Wins Freedom is his take on the entire partition, his personal experiences, and his take on the concept of liberty and freedom. Summary Of The Book India Wins Freedom is an autobiographical narrative of the partition that occurred in 1947. It is marked by the direct, clear cut passages that narrate incidents that took place during the Indian Independence movement. Azad recounts, in his typically frank and forthright manner, the events that unfolded and ultimately led to the partition in a profound, yet deceptively simple manner. When India Wins Freedom was first published, it was sealed and confined at the National Library of Calcutta, with a copy placed at the National Archives in Delhi, for thirty years. In 1988, a court directive released the text, and made it accessible to the general public. The controversial and unique take on the entire freedom movement led to over thirty million copies of the book being sold worldwide. Azad discusses about how politics, more than religion, was responsible for the partition, and how India gained freedom but failed to utilize it to its maximum advantage. He writes about the predominant hypocrisy in the field of politics, and also mentions fellow contemporaries of his time like Gandhi, Nehru, and Subhash Chandra Bose and their mindsets during the entire movement. About Maulana Abul Kalam Azad Abul Kalam Muhiyuddin Ahmed Azad, popularly known as Maulana Azad, was an Indian political leader, scholar, and independent India’s first Minister of Education. Azad has also authored Sallies of the Mind and Khvud Navisht. Maulana Azad is considered to be a crucial component of the Indian Independence Movement, and was subsequently the youngest President of the Indian National Congress. He is also credited for solidifying the education system in India, promoting free education, and establishing the Indian Institutes of Technology all over the country. He was awarded the Bharat Ratna posthumously for his services to the country. One of the most prominent Muslim political leaders of his time, he always vouched for unity as opposed to the notion of divide and rule. His birthday, November 11th, is celebrated all over the nation as National Education Day. He died in 1958 at the age of 69 in New Delhi, India.
