PATRIOTS OR TERRORISTS?

Indian freedom fighters in Edwardian London: 1905-1910

This is a true tale of bombs, guns, lawyers, patriots, philosophers, revolutionaries, and scholars. It concerns a little known part of the history of India's long struggle for independence. 

A large Victorian house stands in a residential street in the north London suburb of Highgate. Between 1905 and 1910, it was known as 'India House', and was a meeting place and hostel for Indian students, many of whom wished to help liberate India from centuries of British domination.


In the 19th and 20th centuries before India's independence, many young Indians came to England to be educated. This is the story of a few of them, who came to Britain in the early 20th century, and then risked sacrificing their freedom, prospects, and lives by becoming involved in India's freedom struggle. 


This book describes the true adventurous exploits of members of Highgate's India House (including Shyamji Krishnavarma, VD Savarkar, Madan Lal Dhingra, and VVS Aiyar) and its history.
