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.

I bought DVs supposed to receive 55 in the set instead got 48 and was in bad condition appears used and dusty. I contacted the seller to return the product and the gave 100% credit with apologies. I am very grateful because I had bought and will continue to buy products here and have never received defective product until now. I bought paintings saris..etc and always pleased with my purchase until now. But I want to say a public thank you to whom it may concern for giving me the credit. Thank you. Navieta.

I am a long-time customer of Exotic India for gifts for me and friends and family. We are never disappointed. Your jewelry craftspeople are very skilled artists. You must treasure them. And we always look forward to the beautifully decorated boxes you use to ship your jewelry.

I have always enjoyed browsing through the website. I was recently in south India, and was amazed to note that the bronze statues made in Kumbakonam and Thanjavur had similar pricing as Exotic India.
Heramba, USA
Thank you very much for your services. I ordered a Dhanvantari Deity from this site and it came quickly and in good condition. Now Sri Dhanvantari ji is worshipped regularly before seeing each client and in the offering of our medicinal products. Thanks again.
