Charan SinghArchives


Over the course of his life, starting from his days in the 1937 Uttar Pradesh Legislative Assembly till Delhi in 1985, Charan Singh wrote extensively and with passion on a wide range of subjects as would be expected from an engaged politician. What is unusual about his writing is its consistency in approach over more than 50 years in public life on the self-cultivating peasant and his raw sense of discrimination against the village. He marshalled data to great effect, and was meticulous in the language and grammar (both English and Hindi) and rigorous in his arguments. He gave no quarter in his polemical political writings, and he often expressed his deep frustration at the fall in standards and motivations in public life compared to the idealistic time of the Indian freedom movement.
