DHONDO KESHAVA KARVE

Introduction

Maharshi Karve lived for a hundred and four years. After he completed his education he pledged his life to the service to others. He chose poverty and walked the path strewn with criticism and opposition; he wiped others, tears, he brought education, equality, honor and joy into the lives of many people.

Dhondo Kesshava Karve

There was a rich man in a town, He had two sons. The man was very wealthy. He called his sons and gave a rupee.

'Fill the Room!

"Spend this rupee-just this one rupee -and fill your room with some thing. Whoever passes this test gets my fortune," said the rich man.

The rich man returned home in the evening.

When he entered the room of the first son, the room was pitch dark. Somehow he groped in the dark. What did he find? Mere hay! The rich man's first son had tried to fill the room with hay.

The rich man entered the second son's room.

With the rupee the second son had brought a mud lamp, some oil and a wick and had lit the lamp. In a corner of the room he had lighted a few scented sticks. The room was full of light. And it was full of sweet smell. The second son passed the test.
