DHONDO KESHAVA KARVE

The Sacred 'Mantra'

Karve had devoted his entire life to the service of others. The government and several institutions expressed the gratitude of the people of India in several ways. The Benares Hindu University and the Women's University honored him by conferring the degree of Doctor of Literature on him. The Government of India decorated him with the title of 'Padma Vibhushan' in 1955.

The Maharshi's 95th birthday fell on 18th April 1953. On that day, in an inaugural address of ten minutes to the Maharashtra Social Conference, the Maharshi said:

"March forward- bravely to remove social differences and to establish social equality.

In 1958 his hundredth birthday was celebrated with great jubilation. A postage stamp was issued with his picture. The same year the highest title, any citizen, of India can receive, the 'Bharat Ratna', was awarded by the President of India. The country showed its gratitude and honored him in every possible way.

Karve passed away on 9th November 1962. He said on his deathbed:

"If Swarajya (or self-government) is to lead to the welfare state, there is one ‘mantra' (sacred utterance) - a mantra proclaimed in our ancient writings, the mantra of the consideration for the good of all."
