DHONDO KESHAVA KARVE

A Graduate

Dhondu wished to learn English. He continued his education in Ratnagiri and Bombay. The sufferings of poverty followed him everywhere. He taught the students of the lower classes and earned some money. He got exemption from payment of tuition fee. Because he got the fifth rank in the examination, he was given a scholarship of two rupees per month. He spent as little money as possible. His father died. His brother Bhikaji's help and sacrifice enabled Dhondu to continue his education without interruption. After Dhondu, came to Bombay for education, with great difficulty, the brother used to send him four rupees a month. Dhondu had to earn by teaching students. Dhondu expected to receive two rupees per month by teaching a particular student. He received only one rupee! One person used to go to him on Sundays to read Marathi poems; he paid Dhondu two annas (twelve paise)! In 1884 Dhondu became a graduate from Elphinstone College, Bombay; his favorite subject was mathematics.
