Freedom and freshness of outlook gave Sarojini Naidu the astonishing insight to see the significance of compositeness in Indian history. In 1906, at the age of 27, she introduced an amendment at the Indian National Conference substituting ‘India’ for ‘Hindu’. It was carried. In sharp contrast to the prevailing orthodoxies, intolerance, and religious dissension, the Golden Threshold was a haven of liberalism and enlightenment. She projected the ‘modern’ face of Indian womanhood -confident, assertive and politically motivated.
