Chandraprabha : The Iron Lady of Assam

By- Hiranya Borah

This book is an analytical biography of Padmashri Chandraprabha Saikiani (1901-1972), who was a leading freedom fighter, social reformer, educationist and a pioneer of women empowerment of Assam. The book has been written contextually instead of chronologically and therefore some repetition will be observed by the readers in the book. As there are many books on the Iron Lady of Assam in the public domain, the book has not been written as a typical biography on her. This book will showcase her capability and accomplishments as a freedom fighter, as a writer, as a poet and as a social worker despite her personal struggles throughout her life against many social norms.
