A history of the Indian Liberal Party by B. D. Shukla, 1960
I chanced upon this book today and I’ve spent some time to OCR and convert it into RTF. The book discusses the history of the Indian Liberal Party that existed from 1918 to 1948.
It is intriguing that this subdomain on archive.org (https://archive.org/details/in.ernet.dli.2015.97555) has the word ERNET in it. Further, this book was originally in the Shanti Niketan Library. This suggests that Shanti Niketan is digitising its books, and that’s GREAT news for India!
In fact, there is a PUBLIC LIBRARY OF INDIA, which currently contains 404,081 books!
I’ll extract interesting snippets from this particular book when I find time.
