Young India (May 1920)

The May 1920 issue of Young India (Vol. 3, No. 5) was titled the "Labor Number." The opening editorial notes focus on different figures of Indian labor (the coolie, agricultural worker, and clerk) within the colony. A note is also made of N.M. Joshi, who had visited the International Labor Conference in Washington as an Indian representative. The issue contains the following articles: "U.S. Congressman May Visit India," "Strikes in India," "A Labor Revolt in the Fiji Islands," "Workers in India: Greetings from America" by Robert M. Buck (The New Majority editor), "The Opium Monopoly" by Francis Hackett, "America to India" by Scott Nearing, "American Labor and India" by A.M.E. Dudley. The final page contains a "message" from Lajpat Rai, which provides a transcript of a speech delivered in Bombay. Ananda Coomaraswamy's art section focuses on the "Head of Apsaras," a temple sculpture from the 10th or 11th century.
