Young India (September 1920)

The September 1920 issue of Young India (Vol. 3, No. 9) was dubbed the "Tilak Number," and features a lengthy article by J.T. Sunderland titled "B.G. Tilak: Scholar and Patriot," another by Betty Hall titled "My Reminiscences of Mr. Tilak," and a photo of Tilak in his study. Other feature articles include a summary of the parliamentary debate over the Jallianwala Bagh massacre, "Boycotting the British," "Why England Keeps India," and "Deporting Indian Laborers" by N.S. Hardiker. Hardiker writes about how "2,000 Hindustani laborers are to be arrested and sent back to India," and how thirty-nine have already been arrested in South Bethelehem, Pennsylvania, where they have been taken to Ellis Island for deportation. The reason for their deportation was their violation of the Immigration Law of 1917, which "forbids entrance of Hindus, unless they be students, travelers, preachers, or the like." The art section, written by Ananda Coomaraswamy, features the 20th century painting Infant Krishna with Yasoda by Asit Kumar Haldar.
