Preface

1990 was the death centenary year of Mahatma Jotirao Phule, 1991 was the birth centenary year of Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar—the two great men who died to free the Hindus from the curse of casteism.

For the occasion of Jotirao’s birth centenary, the National Book Trust, India decided to publish this biography, and requested me in 19990 to prepare it. ;I present to the readers an abridged biography of Jotirao Phule.

The biography is based on the two books published by the Maharashtra Rajya Sahitya Ani Sanskruti Mandal: Mahatma Phule Samagra Vangmaya edited by Y.D. Phadke and Mahatma Jotirao Phule by Dhananjay Keer.
