GOPAL KRISHNA GOKHALE

He said he was entering public life,
at the call of duty, even though he knew it was a difficult path.

Gokhale became a Member of the Imperial Legislative Council in Delhi. There he spoke for the people of the country in an able manner. He had an excellent grasp of the economic problems of our country which he ably presented during the debates. Lord Curzon was the Viceroy at the time. Gokhale earned his respect too. Curzon said that Gokhale was the ablest Indian he had met.

The British Government wanted to confer the title of the Companion of the Indian Empire (C.I.E.) on Gokhale, but the latter politely declined that honour. That shows
Gokhale’s humility.

Gokhale started another Society called the Servants of India j Society in 1905. This Society trains workers for the service of the country. Even today the Society functions. Many great men like the Rt. Hon’ble Srinivasa Sastri were members of this Society and did valuable work for the nation.
