KESHAV BALIRAM HEDGEWAR

Simple, Loveable Personality

In spite of his popularity among the people, Doctoirji never posed himself as a great person. In fact, he shunned publicity. Doctorji's life was, simple and austere. Ordinary chappals on his feet; a simple dhoti-, an ordinary shirt on his person: a coat with collar, and a high cap on his head this was all that constituted his attire.

When Doctorji was available in Nagpur, many acquaintances were coming to his house. It was his habit to welcome all respectfully and make kind inquiries about their welfare. If he found that the visitors had no arrangements for staying else where, he would invite them to stay in his house, and to partake in the humble roti available in his house. In case the food available was insufficient, he would say, "I have had my meal. Kindly come and have food." That he had to serve never bothered him. He never allowed the dire poverty to show up in his face or in his manner.

Quick temper was a family trait of the Hedgewars. The father Balirampant was almost dreaded for his irascibility. His eldest son Mahadev Shastri too breathed fire. No less short tempered was Doctorji himself in early days. However, after the beginning of Sangh work, there appeared a total change in his nature. He became mellowed. He thereafter used to speak with others in a most sweet and affable manner.He brought about a metamorphosis in his nature as it were for the sake of the organization.
