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

Testimonials
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
