Hindu poet, reformer, and political leader Sarojini Naidu was born on Feb. 13, 1879, in Hyderabad, India, of Brahman heritage. Her original name was Sarojini Chattopadhyay. After graduating from the University of Madras, she studied in England at London and Cambridge universities. She broke tradition in 1898 by marrying Dr. M.G. Naidu, who belonged to a lower caste than she. In 1925 she became the first Indian woman president of Indian National Congress party. Active in Mahatma Gandhi's Noncooperation Movement, she was jailed several times for Nationalist activities. In 1947 she became governor of the United Provinces (nowUttar Pradesh), a post she retained until her death, on March 2, 1949, in Lucknow. Naidu also wrote three books of poetry in English: The Golden ThresholdThe Bird of Time, and The Broken Wing.
