In preparation for writing the book ” Great Leaders of P and T Trade Union Movement” (now published), I went through the old union journals, some books, old records etc. I was surprised and exhilarated. Their indomitable courage  in fighting for the cause of workers, great capacity to organise, the innumerable sacrifices and hardships they have undergone  in defending the workers – there is no limit. Of course the tumultous period of struggle for independennce, formation of  national trade union centres, extremely hard working conditions – all these might have inflenced them.
Their life and struggle inspires us. We have to be worthy as their inheritors.
