MADANA MOHANA MALAVIYA

The Dream Of A University

As was said earlier, many Indians were proud of the English language, customs, manners and civilization. The feeling was growing that everything Indian was contemptible. Malaviya who was an eminent scholar and patriot was keen that Indian culture should receive due respect and educated men should understand this culture. For this purpose he wanted to establish a University in Varanasi (Benares).

Is it an easy task to establish a University? It is difficult to start and run even a school. How difficult, then, should it be to start a University? And that, when a single individual makes the attempt! But this devotee of the Goddess of Learning had once and for all made up his mind.

The twenty-first session of the Indian National Congress was held in Benares. Gopalakrishna Gokhale was the distinguished president. Pandit Malaviya took advantage of the occasion. He called together the senior leaders of the Congress; he spoke to them, about his strong desire to. establish a Hindu University in Benares. All the leaders heartily welcomed the idea. Surrendranath Bannerjee, the, famous leader, stood up and said: "I shall work free as a Professor of English in Benares Hindu University until it can find a suitable scholar".
