Two men who knew and worked with Annie Besant - Peter Freeman, M.P., and C. Jinarajadasa, who was vice-president of the Theosophical Society when Annie Besant was president and is now president himself - recall the life of the famous social reformer and theosophist.
The hundredth anniversary of Annie Besant's birth falls today. Annie Besant led a very exceptional life; wife of an Anglican clergyman, free-thinker, collaborator of Bradlaugh, Fabian socialist, successor to Madame Blavatsky, president of the Theosophical Society for twenty-six years, president of the Indian National Congress, organiser of the Central Hindu College of Benares.
She began to take part in Indian politics in 1913. establishing a daily paper. New India, which had for its motto 'For God, King, and Country.' From the beginning of her political agitation her platform was 'Home Rule for India, to gain for India the status of a Dominion within the British Commonwealth', and she steadfastly resisted the agitation to make India a country outside the Empire. She was interned in 1917 as a 'violent political agitator,' but owing to popular uproar she was released after three months. At the following December meeting of the Indian National Congress she was ejected as its president. She died in 1933 at the age of eighty-seven.
