Indian Dictionary of Biography

The Indian  Dictionary of Biography(IDB) is India’s first ever  dictionary of national biography. You can find detailed descriptions of the lives of over 15,000 significant persons in Indian history. The entries come from all  walks of life – from presidents, prime ministers, parliamentarians, artists, actors, authors, engineers,doctors, journalists, school teachers, professors  to prostitutes and criminals – providing a refreshingly different Indian  social history.

The IDB is produced by the CLWS(Centre for Life Writing Studies) and is going to be available online.
