KESHAV BALIRAM HEDGEWAR

Lineage

It was the auspicious day of Vijaya Dashami. The first day of April 1889. Keshav was born in Nagpur. His mother Revatibai hailed from the Paithankar family. She was married to Balirampant Hedgewar. Keshav was their fifth child. They had six children in all. Revatibai was serene and composed by nature. She adjusted herself to the temperaments of all her in-laws. Balirampant was extremely short-tempered. Added to this, the family was in dire poverty. However, this did not come in their way of leading a happy family life.

The three Hedgewar brothers were adventurous by nature. Their spirits rose whenever they were confronted with an impossible task. Once the well in their backyard was to be readied for an annual worship. It was full of dirt and mire. The three brothers took it upon themselves to clean the well by removing the entire dirt. They did not inform about this plan to the elders in the house, fearing that they might prevent them. The same night they addressed themselves to the task. They first ascertained that all others were fast asleep. Then the trio drew out all the soiled muddy water from the well, removed the accumulated dirt, and quietly went to bed before morn. The others in the house were surprised to find fresh and clean water shining in the well the next morning.
