Aruna Asaf Ali, a radical nationalist played an outstanding role in the historic quit India movement launched by Mahatma Gandhi on August 9, 1942, and was a prominent leader of the underground movement. She published bulletins, went from place to place and even met Mahatma Gandhi avoiding arrest. She edited Inquilab a monthly journal of the Indian National Congress.

Great soul Mrs Aruna Asaf Ali was born in 1909, 16th of July at Kalka into a Bengali Brahmin family and she had died on July 29th, 1996. I am married to her Nephew (her younger brother Amarendu Gangulee's son ) Amit Gangulee. She devoted her whole life for the betterment of her country. Her contribution in liberating Goa had tremendous impact in achieving the freedom for Goans. As a true patriot, she alluded any public adulation or public position and devoted her selfless spirit to provide her motherland with the real freedom she fought all her life for. On a personal note I have yet to see anybody so perfect and pure in everyway.

NEENA GANGULEE
Thank you for correcting Mrs Aruna Asaf Ali's date of Birth. Its 16th of July, 1909 and her great soul departed on 29th of July 1996. You have corrected it in your main page but search outline is still showing the wrong date you had previously put there. Thanks. Neena Gangulee

Aruna-di was my grand-aunt (grandfather’s older sister). I called her “dadima.” I once spilled hot coffee on her, and her bodyguard jumped. I started crying and decided I’d never speak to her again. She scolded me, “Silly boy, I’m also your granny, not just a police force.” I find her strength in other women surrounding me, but I miss her.
Abhishek Gangulee
Here is another perspective on Aruna-di, my grand-aunt on my biological father’s side. Although our family is quite distinguished in Indian history, many of the members lived very humble, reclusive, or even shallow lives. Dadima really stood out in this sense as patriotic and heroic. My grandfather’s elder brother spent his final days in the care of his family and friends, and Aruna-di played a very motherly role here. I know India misses her maternal strength, but our family misses what she did for us too.
Shifali Barwa
I would like to contribute a little matter on this great freedom fighter.
Shifali Barwa
ARUNA ASAF ALI ( A dedicated freedom fighter) Aruna Asaf Ali was a revolutionary freedom fighter. She has left unforgettable service in the revolution of "Quit India Movement" in 1942. She had served India in many posts efficiently. Arunaji was born in 1909 in a bengali family. Her original name was Aruna ganguli. She got her education from Nainital. She was a very intelligent student from her childhood. After eduaction, she married a person of her choice, a famous lawyer, Asaf Ali. It was an intercast marraige. She went to jail many times during freedom struggle. She hoisted courageously the Tricolour in 1942 in Mumbai facing police threat. After independence, she was elected president of Delhi Congress Committee. She worked hard to organise the congress party in Delhi. In 1958, Arunaji was elected first Mayor of Delhi Municipal Corporation. She worked efficiently for cleanliness, health and deverlopment of Delhi. Arunaji was also associated with " Indo Soviet Cultural Society", " All India Peace Council" and " Naational Federation of Indian Women" etc. She worked hard with honesty and zeal, wherever she was posted. Really she was a great patriot. She was awarded with Lenin Peace Prize' , and 'Indira Gandhi Award' for national unity. She was also associated with the newspaper 'Patriot'. To honour her, a road in Delhi was named as ' Aruna Asaf Ali Marg'. She left for heavenly abode in 1996 leaving her good deeds.

ARUNA ASAF ALI WAS BORN GANGULY - A HIGH CASTE BRAHMIN BUT THAT DID NOT STAND IN THE WAY OF MARRYING A NOBLE MUSLIM FELLOW-FREEMOM FIGHTER. SUCH WAS THE LOVE OF THE MOTHERLAND OF OUR FOREFATHERS! WE SALUTE THEM ALL.
