This book is the first-ever illustrated history of Hindu College, Delhi, a premier institution founded in 1899. The continued struggle for doing well and survival only underlines the great commitment of its founding fathers, the teachers and the students in the early years. The college had to face several odds and a hostile administration, which feared the patriotic fervour of the college, providing a hub for the national leaders to address the youth of the country. The college groomed great nationalists ready to take on the British regime. It is no wonder that the college has produced some of the most illustrious alumni who have contributed to different fields resulting in the overall progress of our country. The essence of more than three years of relentless pursuit of authentic material from multiple sources has been finally distilled in the form of this book that is bound to appeal to both the older and present generation of people who are linked to the prestigious Hindu College
