Birth Centenary of Ram Manohar Lohia

Tomorrow (March 23) is the 100th birth anniversary of the Socialist leader, Dr Ram Manohar Lohia.

A freedom-fighter, he parted with the Congress along with Jayaprakash Narayan and other Congress Socialists who were the heroes of the Quit India agitation.

While JP and most members of the group strayed away from politics or went back to the Congress, Lohia stayed in the field holding aloft the slogan of Socialism.

What marked Lohia apart from other leaders of his generation was his deep understanding of Indian reality, especially the role of caste in Indian society. He brought a large number of young people into the political arena who, while lacking his vision, still played an important role in national politics after his time.

Your efforts to remember Shri Ram Maohar is highly appreciated, when people are not caring to remember great people once lived and role models of many. Now we are lacking living role models. Atleast,let us have some people like Shri Ram Maohar. Thanks a lot Mr BRP Bhaskar.

Can we expect more such usefull blogs?
