During the period of pre-independence, India's political field had the proud privilege of coming across a number of great revolutionaries, personalities, and political leaders, who fought gallantly to regain the glorious past of our country. Religion, art, culture, literature, political freedom, welfare activities, were the subjects of their keen interest. They dedicated their lives, rendered invaluable services to the cause of the Motherland, suffered and inspired the people to follow their bright examples.

Born in 1870, nurtured in the fold of protestant Hinduism, the Brahmo Samaj by its revolt against the obscurantism and superstition of orthodox Hindu society, Chittaranjan was a deep expression of the great Indian Renaissance that was ushered in by Raja Rammohan Roy. It was an age in which western ideals of individualism and humanism, rationalism and free thinking, nationalism and democracy came to be welded into an integrated principle and served as a catalytic agent in the transformation of Indian society. During the most impressionable period of his life, from 1870 to 1900, these principles of the nineteenth century in India was an age in which the east and the west had met and oriental values came to be enriched by the admixture of western ideals. In short, it was an epoch noted for the synthesis of the ideas of the orient and the occident. During this period of her history, India was making a great and glorious attempt to rediscover her true self in the light of western philosophy and science. Chittaranjan was a child of this grand epoch of our history.
