Unhappy India by Lala Lajpat Rai :: In 1927 Katherine Mayo, a foreign journalist, visited India. She wrote a book called ‘Mother India’. It was about Indian civilization, culture and life. She saw only sheer ignorance and filth in India and nothing good or decent. People who were opposed to the freedom of India had given money for the publication of Miss Mayo’s book. In response to that book Lala Lajpat Rai wrote this book. In this book Lala Lajpat Rai gave a fitting reply to false propaganda of Miss Mayo. In this book Lala Lajpat Rai compared Indian society with contemporary USA and Britain. He pointed out that situation is not much different than India. This book is really helpful in understanding India and world society of 1928.
