Annie Besant
1847-1933

Among the Britons who actively helped the cause of Indian nationalism, perhaps the most outstanding figure was Dr. Annie Besant. A great orator, ceaseless worker and one of the founders of the Theosophical society, Besant adopted India as her motherland. She started the Home Rule movement and invited the wrath of the authorities who interned her. She presided over the memorable Calcutta session of the Congress in 1918, which brought the Congress and the Home Rule League together, it also appointed a Committee to recommend a design for the National Flag.

Since Madam Annie Besant is connected with Theosophical Society of India, why is she not featured with Mme H P Blavatsky who was the founder of Theosophical Movement.
