DHONDO KESHAVA KARVE

A New Venture At seventy-eight

Within three or four years of Karve’s return from travel abroad, the Thackersey Trust had taken over the management of the Women’s University. Karve had enough leisure. He was then seventy-eight year’s old-an age at which a man seeks rest. But Karve’s enthusiasm for public service had not waned. He turned the attention towards the education of children. In numerous villages of Maharashtra there were no primary schools. He determined to make an organized effort to start schools in villages. For this purpose he established the ‘Primary Education Society’. Karve was running the schools till the government itself took them over in 1948.

There is no difference between man and man; all are equal. Karve wanted to instill this attitude in all people. So he started the ‘Society for the Promotion of Equality’. He was then eighty six years old. Karve toured all over the country to bring home to people the lesson of the equality of all human beings.
