         With the advent, two centuries ago, of the British Power in India the lamp of liberty was blown out in this land. Yet, as is unique with our Bharatavarsha all through the ages, there soon sprang up, all over the country and in all walks of national life, a galaxy of talented, high-souled, dedicated men and women, great by any standard, at any time or clime in the history of mankind. They would be a coveted ornament to any nation in the world. They consecrated their whole life and work for the resurrection of our Janmabhoomi. They re-lit the lamp of our liberty. They heralded a new era. They safeguarded our Individuality. They strengthened our Intentions. They saved our way of Life. These messiahs constituted a long, Grand Procession. They brought about a comprehensive, full-blooded, glorious Renaissance. Raja Ram Mohan Roy was the "twinkling morning star" of this Renaissance, Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, "the gentle, bracing dawn", and Mahatma Gandhi, the "meridian splendour." For the edification of our readers, particularly the post-Independence generation, we give, in chronological order, the portrait along with a brief sketch, of fifty of these far-seeing Architects and stalwart Builders of Modern India. As poet Longfellow has said: Lives of great men all remind us We can make our lives sublime And departing, leave behind us Footprints on the Sands of Time.
