An near balanced selection that includes the speeches of politicians,saints,frredom fighters, philosophers,poets,scientists,social workers,anthropologists of Modern India.
A ready reckoner for the speeches of the who's who of modern India,

No speech delivered by the Grand old man is included,it would have served better had it included "The Benefits of British Rule, 1871" speech of Dadabhai Naoroji.

One speech of Lord Curzon would be sufficient instead of the two.

You can't really review a book like this because of it's borrowed nature.

I picked up this book on Independence day due to a sudden burst of patriotism and read through 'Tryst with destiny.'

That speech will always remain in the 'top ten' for me with other strongholds like "I have a Dream" and Susan. B Anthonys' legendary diatribe.

Other Notable speeches in the book:

Rekindling a spark of enthusiasm by J.R.D Tata: There is something very poetic about this man's love for machines.This love manifests

A nice read, though not al the speeches are worth reading. but Satyajeet Ray's ,Bajpayee's, NathuRam Godse's, Sister Nivedita's, Tata's etc are very good and give an authentic historical perspective.
