 BHUBANANANDA DAS

 

BHUBANANANDA DAS

A great patriot, freedom fighter and distinguished parliamentarian, Bhubanananda Das was an indefatigable social worker blending in himself the genius of an engineer and the excellence of an intellectual.  He had the greatest regard for India's cultural heritage and held progressive views on all matters of social and economic uplift and political thinking of the day.  He was a member of the Central Legislative Assembly, Constituent Assembly, Provisional Parliament, the Rajya Sabha and the Lok Sabha.  He was also the first non-official Chairman of the Public Accounts Committee.  Having been a member of the Legislature for a continuously long period, he was often referred to as the "Father of the House".

The portrait, painted by Basant Gangooly, was donated by Friends and Admirers.
