This tribute to Comrade Captain Lakshmi Sahgal, written by her daughter Comrade Subhashini Ali, charts her life, her ideological and political journey, and her deep commitment to public service. It was first published in Frontline and republished with the author's approval.
Prof. Geraldine Forbes, a distinguished teaching professor at SUNY, USA had written an introduction to Capt. Lakshmi's autobiography "A Revolutionary Life - Memoirs of a political activist". Forbes' essay serves as a great introduction and provides a lot of perspective on the challenges, obstacles faced and achievements of the freedom fighter, communist and revolutionary, Capt. Lakshmi. Pragoti has arranged for a scanned copy of the introduction from the autobiography and is publishing it for non-commercial, informational purposes following the death of the distinguished freedom fighter a couple of days ago.
