Gopal Krishna Gokhale (Pioneer Crusader against Illiteracy, Social Evils and British Colonial Rule)
Description
Foreword

Gopal Krishna Gokhale was one of the most genuine freedom fighters of India.

He was no gun weilding revolutionary seeking martyrdom. Neither was he slogan shouting or breast beating demonstrator.

Gokhale was a silent and serious crusader. He was an educationist who laboured for the spread of education in the country. He fought against the social evils that were plaguing the Indian society. Untouchability, caste system, blind faiths, senseless customs, dowry and widow burning or tormenting were leading to the self destruction of India. And through Congress he was actively participating in the battle politically against British colonial rule over India.

That was genuine and really serious freedom fighting because the British were not the only reason for the slavery and the exploitation of Indian masses. The shackled Indians to miseries and the poverty.

Without education and eradication of social evils the independence even if won from British would have been meaningless. The masses would have been irrelevant.

Gopal Krishna Gokhale had understood this fact clearly. Hence, he put greater efforts in spreading education and cleansing the society of horrendous evils. At the same time he was active as any other Congressman in the freedom struggle.

In Gopal Krishna Gokhale we had an ideal freedom fighter who was seeking genuine independence. He was not for counterfeit freedom or half baked liberty.

The biography of Krishna Gokhale is the story of a 24 contribution to the freedom struggle of our country and the society hence, this book should prove a valuable reading.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
