“The October Revolution undoubtedly produced a radicalising effect on the Indian situation from the very  beginning. Why was this so? At the end of World War I, India was astir with workers’ strikes and massive demonstrations against British repression. Peasant unrest was also growing. It  was this awakened India, entering the mass phase of its fight  for independence, which looked to the Russian Revolution and to its leader Lenin for inspiration and help... They further saw that Lenin and  other leaders of Soviet Russia stood for a new social order in which exploitation of man by man is ended, an order based on brotherhood, equality and cooperation of men, and had established a society in which the working class and the toiling people had come into their own and taken over the reins of administration to build socialism.”

- Excerpt from 'Galvanising Impact of the October  Revolution on India’s National-Liberation Movement' by G. Adhikari, Soviet Land, August 1977.
