Flying Canucks tells the fascinating story of aviation in Canada through this collection of 37 biographies of important aviators in our nation's history. As early as 1908, having read the Wright brothers' invention, alberta farm boys and mechanics in Quebec villages were constructing large kites, attempting to fly them. Within a decade, Canadian air aces, like Bishop and Barker, swept the wartime skies over Frances, piloting deadly machines in mortal combat. Through the 20s, that very Canadian breed of adventurer, the bush pilot, ventured over the desolate tundra, delivering medicine and missionaries, mail and Mounties to remote communities as far as Ellesmere Island and Ungava Bay. Members of the Royal Canadian Air Force fought with distinction during the Second world War. Titles such as The Saviour of London and The Angel of Ceylon seem like wartime hype, but the skill and courage that those pilots displayed half a century ago set them apart still. For the six Canadian airmen who won the Victoria Cross, there were thousands who flew into the meat grinder that was the Allies' strategic air offensive over Europe. This book chronicles the exploits of only a few men and women -- but it truly celebrates the spirit and resolve of countless brave Canadians who are proud part of aviation in this country.

Famous Indian Social Reformers Any society consists of diverse and different types of persons; persons with different religions, different castes, different colours, different gender and different faiths etc. And it is expected that they all should live in harmony and without discrimination; an ideal situation is when there is equality, freedom and brotherhood among all sections of society. However, human society all over the world shows that various types of exploitative practices are prevalent there; these practices originated due to human greed for power, authority and superiority; such as so-called higher caste people would exploit so-called lower caste persons; a white would exploit a black; males would like to dominate females; believer of one religion would downgrade other religions etc. These discriminatory and exploitative practices take the form of social evils in the long run and become a scar on the face of any civilized society. Every country, in its history, has had numerous bright individuals who would live and work for the progress and upliftment of the downtrodden persons in the society; and due to their efforts, it became possible to abolish several extreme social evils such as Sati Pratha, Parda Pratha, Jati Pratha and Bal Vivah etc. India is fortunate to have, in its long history, many extraordinary human beings who devoted all their lives for the betterment of society and for the upliftment of the downtrodden. A few among them are Raja Ram Mohan Roy, Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar, Swami Vivekananda, Mahatma Gandhi, Dr. B.R. Ambedkar, Jyotiba Phule, , Ram Mohan Roy, Vinoba Behave, Mother Teresa and Kailash Satyarthi etc. These social reformers have fought against several social evils such as Sati Pratha ( A custom in which a woman immolates herself on her husband's funeral pyre), Pardha Pratha (Veil System), Jati Pratha (Casteism), Bal Vivah (Child Marriage), female infanticide, widow remarriage, a ban on female education, and child labour etc. In India, social reforms did not ordinarily mean a reorganization of the structuring of society at a large, as it did in the west, for the benefit of underprivileged social and economic classes. Instead, it means the infusion into the existing social structure of the new ways of life and thought; the society would be pre-served, while its members would be transformed. In this book, We will look into the life and works of these extraordinary men and women and will appreciate their efforts in the making of today's India.
