Delhi. Who joined the University of Leeds in 1982 as a visiting professor? I am deeply grateful to him for sparing time for frequent sittings with me and allowing me to benefit from his knowledge and insight whilst discussing some important issues relating to the freedom movement in India.
I was able w exchange views with other eminent Indian scholars like Professor S. R. Mehrotra at the India Office Library and Records. London. Professor Mehrotra also delivered a series of lectures at various British Universities on the freedom movement in India which were thought-provoking for me.
Similarly, Professor Euganee Irschrik of the University of California Berkely was also kind enough to offer his comments on various mam relating to my conclusions on the freedom movement in India.
