This year marks the 125th birth anniversary of revolutionary artist and freedom fighter Paul Robeson. We dedicate this issue of Vishwabandhu to his memory and legacy. Paul Robeson was loved and celebrated by the peoples of the world. Many Indian thinkers and activists have paid tributes to this great man, and his 60th birth anniversary was celebrated in India under an all India committee under the leadership of M.C. Chagla and Indira Gandhi. In this issue we have collected and republished some moving tributes by Indians to Paul Robeson, including an English translation of a poem by Ali Sardar Jaffri. The issue also includes four articles on the relevance of Paul Robeson’s ideas and life today, an article on China and current world affairs by M.K. Bhadrakumar and an article on Perin Chandra and the Indian peace movement. Lastly, the issue includes a report on a reading group, Nai Taleem, started by Gandhi Global Family. Republished with this report is the last reading undertaken by the group, Training for Socialism by Aruna Asaf Ali, along with its translation into Hindi.
