  • "Maharshi" - It is not an English word, so its translation should be present in brackets.
  • "King's College, Cambridge"- in which country?
  • "He was imprisoned by British India"? I think "British government" or even "British" would be perfect.

  • If I am not wrong the Congress meetings were held annually in a city to review the progress made. In 1906, it was held in Calcutta headed by Dadabhai Naoroji. I think it should be mentioned.
