DHONDO KESHAVA KARVE

Patience Personified

Society baked Karve in the fire of its displeasure; but he did not lose heart. He never spoke a harsh word in protest. If the injustice rooted in society has to be set right such sufferings have to be borne. No purpose will be served by abuse or shouting. When our skin develops an abscess or a boil we treat that part of the body with special care and get rid of the abscess or boil. We don't grow angry at the abscess and scratch it. It becomes worse if scratched. When child marriage,

opposition to widow's marriage, untouchability and such itches and eruptions spread, they must be Cured by careful treatment and not by unwise actions. This was Karve's stand. One should be determined to fight blind customs; at the same time one should take care not to weaken the society. Karve always had this goal before him.
