Lakshmiswar Sinha (1905–1977) was a major figure both as a builder of modern India, who focused on correcting the over-intellectualizing bias of education in a manual direction, and as the first Indian Esperantist who worked to connect India and the worldwide Esperanto-speaking community. He is remembered far more articulately in the Esperanto community than in the context of India’s journey to modernity. Arguably his vision of development and education was ahead of his times. Contemporary thinking, focused on ergonomic efficiency and localism, makes it appropriate to argue for a recontextualization of his well-documented trajectory.
