Jayaprakash Narayan: Freedom fighter, red…and buckeye

According to the Encyclopedia of World Biography, Indian freedom fighter Jayaprakash Narayan studied at Ohio State. Go figure: JP a buckeye.

JP was in the US from 1922-29 (what a time to leave India and to be in the US!) where he worked with some communists. But then, rejecting Soviet policy, he went to work for the Congress party rather than build the communist movement in India.
