DR. RAJENDRA PRASAD

DR. RAJENDRA PRASAD

A selfless and devoted national leader and a great pragmatist, Dr. Rajendra Prasad possessed high legal acumen and an unruffled temperament.  An ardent follower of the Mahatma, he shared Gandhiji's great vision, the making of a new man in a new society.  He was a President of the Indian National Congress.  As President of the Constituent Assembly and subsequently as the President of India for two consecutive terms, he played a very important role in shaping the destiny of the nation and left an indelible imprint on our country's life and polity Jawaharlal Nehru once described him as the symbol of 'Bharat'.  His unostentatious grace, extreme simplicity, deep humility, absolute sincerity and fraternal care for all sections of the people won for him the respect and confidence of the entire country.

The portrait, painted by H.S. Trivedi, was unveiled by the then President of India, Dr. S. Radhakrishnan on 5 May 1964.

The portrait was donated by the Artist and the Congress Party.
