Dr. Rajendra Prasad (December 3, 1884 – February 28,1963) was the first President of Republic India.

He was an independence activist and, as a leader of the Congress Party, played a prominent role in the Indian Independence Movement. He served as the president of the Constituent Assembly that drafted the constitution of the Republic from 1948 to 1950. He had also served as a Cabinet Minister briefly in the first Government of Independent India.

Rajendra Prasad was born in Jiradei village of Siwan Bihar. His father, Mahadev Sahai, was the Diwan of Hathwa Raj with whom his family shared a very good relationship; his mother, Kamaleshwari Devi, was a devout lady who would tell stories from the Ramayana to her son. At the age of five, the young Rajendra Prasad was sent to a Maulavi for learning Persian. After that he was sent to Chhapra Zilla School for further primary studies. He was married at the age of 12 to Rajvanshi Devi. He then went on to study at T K Ghosh Academy in Patna to be with his elder brother Mahendra Prasad. Soon afterward, however, he rejoined the Chhapra Zilla School, and it was from there that he passed the entrance examination of Calcutta University, at the age of 18. He stood first in the first division of that examination. He joined the Presidency College in 1902. His dauntless determination towards the service of nation was joined by Bihar Kesari Dr. Sri Krishna Sinha and Bihar Bibhuti Dr. Anugrah Narayan Sinha who came under his tutelage. He passed in 1915 with a Gold Medal in Masters in Law examination with honours. He went on to complete his Doctorate in Law. Rajendra Prasad used to practice his Law & studies in Bhagalpur (Bihar), and was a very popular and eminent figure over there during that ceremonious era.
