Abstract

India is celebrating its 75th year of independence under “Azadi ke Amrit Mahotsav”, a Pan-Indian initiative. Literature and research pertaining to the Indian freedom movement are copious. But the silent and unnoticed fact here is that the influential players are only mentioned while others are relegated to the background. Indians could achieve their freedom only through a mass movement, but no effort was put into excavating the efforts of ordinary players, particularly women. With the growth in history and historiography, new paradigms are paving the way for fresh research. Here, an attempt has been made in that direction.
