About The Series

 

The object of this series is to record, for the present and future generations, the story of the struggle and achievements of the eminent sons and daughters of India who have been mainly instrumental in our national renaissance and the attainment of Independence. Except in a few cases, such authoritative biographies have not been available.

 

The biographies are planned as handy volumes written by knowledgeable people and giving a brief account, in simple words, of the life and activities of the eminent leaders and of their times. They are not intended either to be comprehensive studies or to replace the more elaborate biographies.

 

The work of writing these lives has to be entrusted to different people. It has, therefore, not been possible to publish the biographies in a chronological order. It is hoped, however, that within a short period all eminent national personalities will figure in this series.

 

Shri R.R. Diwakar is the General Editor of the series.

 

About This Book

 

Mahamana Malaviya was a shining star of the galaxy of freedom fighters, a social reformer, a scholar, a pioneer in education and a religious man. He occupied a very high position in public life and his public activities were numerous-he was many sided personality. His personal life was very simple. He was always dressed in immaculate white and was called "the spotless Pandit".

 

Tagore said about him, "Your clarion call has awakened many parts of the country and devoted heroes are gathering around you. May your exhortations touch the heart of' everybody and stir him to action."

 

Paying glowing tributes to him Gandhiji wrote :

 

“.I found him (Lokmanya Tilak) as lofty as the Himalayas. I thought that it was not possible for me to climb up that unscalable height. I then went to Shri Gokhale. He appeared to me like a deep ocean. I found that it was not possible for me to enter so deep. Lastly I approached Malaviyaji. He seemed to me as crystal-like as the stream and I decided to have ablutions in the sacred stream."

 

It would require volumes to narrate the life story of such a personality. But to give a glimps of his life and deeds this book presents a short biographical account.
