Who's Who Home Page

Brajendra Nath De (1852-1932) was first educated at home, then sent to one of the new schools that taught English. He obtained a scholarship to study in England where he passed the civil service examination, returned home in glory, and began a career which made it necessary to live outside his traditional family home.

As one of the first eight Indians appointed to the Indian Civil Services (ICS), Brajendra Nath was considered an excellent example of the modern professional class, but his wife had been a child bride and he remained attached to his large joint family with its numerous dependents and obligations. He insisted on educating his daughters and one of them Saroj Nalini Dutt, led the way in organizing rural women's organizations in the years immediately following World War I.
