KESHAV BALIRAM HEDGEWAR

Prudence And Caution

Keshavrao had close contact with the revolutionaries in Calcutta. His friendship with the prominent revolutionaries like Shyarnsundar Chakravarti, Motilal Ghosh and others were very intimate. Not all were admitted easily to the main organization of revolutionaries, called the 'Anusheelan Samiti'.

From the moment he left Nagpur, Keshavrao was constantly shadowed by the Intelligence Agents. Keshavraosensed it immediately and remained watchful. Once a police officer named Ketkar came to his room under the guise of a student. He began to develop fake intimacy with the other students. But Keshavrao was suspicious. He tried to convince others that Ketkar was a police agent and cautioned them to be careful while dealing with him. But hardly any one believed him.

Narayanrao Savarkar, brother of Swatantryaveer Savarkar, was released from jail in June 1920. He had thereafter decided to join Calcutta Medical College for his further studies. One day, after ascertaining that Ketkar had gone out, Keshavrao broke open the latter's box. He found a confidential letter from the Government, which said, "N.D.S. is coming there. Keep him under surveillance."

Keshavrao showed that letter to his friends and retrieved it to its original place. They all were astonished. They thenappreciated the prudence and alertness of Keshavrao.

In spite of these involvements, Keshavrao never allowed his studies to suffer. He always secured good marks in his examinations.

He passed the final examination and obtained an L. M. S.' degree in 1914. Soon thereafter he received an offer of a handsome job from Bangkok. But he turned it down, as he had already decided to dedicate his whole life for the cause of the nation.

The financial condition of his house had worsened. Naturally all the people hoped that Doctor Keshavrao would open a dispensary and help his elder brothers. In fact, doctors in general commanded great respect of the people in society in those days.

Their income also was substantial. But Keshavrao did not bother at all about it. Many people insisted on his marrying. He did not show the slightest inclination in that direction. He wrote to his uncle: "I want to work for the country and hence wish to remain unmarried. While doing this work, anything -may happen. Knowing this fully well, it is not good to risk the life of any girl."
