Born in February 13, 1879, Sarojini Naidu, the eldest amongst eight siblings, was a distinguished poet, freedom fighter, orator, and the first Indian woman to become the President of the Indian National Congress, in addition to being the first woman to become the governor of a state in India.  

Sarojini Naidu was proficient in Urdu, English, Bengali, Persian and Telugu. Despite her parents wishes for her to become a mathematician or a scientist, Naidu focused on poetry and began writing poems in English. Her stunning poetry eventually earned her a scholarship to study abroad. Choosing London, Naidu met Arthur Simon and Edmond Gausse, who convinced her to continue writing about India’s mountains, rivers, temples, and contemporary life.

Her most popular collections include The golden threshold (1905)”, “The bird of time (1912)”, and “The broken wing (1912)”.
