Aruna Asaf Ali: EPW article abstract

Standard

Biswamoy Pati, From the Parlour to the Streets: A Short Note on Aruna Asaf Ali, Economic and Political Weekly, Volume XLIV Number 28, July 11, 2009.

Aruna Asaf Ali’s life and career were conditioned by her exposure to a political context which reflected diversity, secularism and anti-colonialism.

Her political
activism as a freedom fighter and
a woman activist encompassed
these strands of anti-colonialism
and radicalism. It finally
culminated in a clear support
for socialism – marking her
transition from being a member
of the Congress to joining the
Communist Party of India after
independence.
