It was a chance viewing of a documentary on Aruna Asaf Ali which DD Bharti put out yesterday. Suddenly old memories revived. It was in 1983 that I wrote an article for “Patriot” on the role of student agitations with specific reference to the student’s agitation at Delhi College of Engineering in which I played a significant role. Aruna Asaf Ali was instrumental in establishing the newspaper "Patriot".

The newspaper “Patriot” no longer exists but Aruna Asaf Ali and her contribution to India’s freedom struggle, socialist and leftist movements as well as several social initiatives will be fondly remembered for a long time.
