Malaviya traveled many times across
the length and breadth of the country from Himachal to Kanyakumari and from Peshawar to
Brahmades. Wherever he went, he solicited funds for the noble cause.
Once Malaviya gave a discourse on Shrimad Bhagavatha in Dharganga. The Maharaja
attended on the concluding day. As he listened to Malaviya's extraordinary discourse the
Maharaja was spellbound. He not only donated twenty-five lakh rupees to Benares Hindu
University but also pledged to work for the noble cause during the rest of his life.
Malaviya was deeply moved and shed tears of joy. The Maharaja of Dharbanga kept his word.
With Malaviya he visited many states and collected enormous funds for the University.
Pandit Malaviya toured the country and collected one core and thirty-four lakh rupees
and earned the title of 'The Emperor of Beggars'. Once Gandhiji exclaimed that he learned
the noble art of begging from his 'elder brother', Shri Malaviya.
