Lakshmi Sehgal was born Lakshmi Swaminadhan on October 24, 1914 in Madras to S. Swaminadhan, a talented lawyer, and A.V. Ammukutty, a social worker and freedom fighter. She was known to be a rebellious child who fought against the demeaning institution of caste in Kerala. She passed away in July last year.
