Meet the Author

"Margaret Elizabeth Noble (1867-1911), better known as Sister Nivedita, was an Anglo-Irish social worker, author, teacher and disciple of Swami Vivekananda. She met Vivekananda in 1895 in London and travelled to India (Kolkata) in 1898. Swami Vivekananda gave her the name Nivedita (which means one who is dedicated to God) on March 25, 1898. In November 1898 she started a school for girls which is now called Ramakrishna Sarada Mission Sister Nivedita Girls' High School. She worked to improve the lives of Indian women of all castes.

Nivedita was a good friend of many intellectuals and artists in the Bengali community, including the Nobel laureate writer Rabindranath Tagore.

In later years, Nivedita took up the cause of Indian independence. Her unique position as a westerner with impeccable Hindu credentials enabled her to say and do many things that would have had repercussions for Indians. She promoted pan-Indian nationalist views both in her writings and in public meetings."
