RAJA RAMMOHAN ROY

Love Of Independence

Rammohan was an exceptional patriot and lover of freedom. ‘I do not think I shall be fortunate enough to see freedom reign supreme all over the world’, so he used to lament. Like Tilak, Rammohan believed that Liberty was every man’s birthright.

Rammohan was intensely patriotic, but he was generous and broadminded. In 1823, the Spanish colonies in South America became independent. He invited his friends to a party to celebrate this joyous event. A friend of his asked him, "Why are you so elated if people in South America become independent?" Rammohan said, "What! They may be in South America, but are they not our brothers? Their language and religion may be different. Should we not sympathize with them in their troubles?"

Have you heard of ‘The League of Nations’?

The First World War was fought from 1914 to 1918. The object of starting the League of Nations in 1920 was to see that another such war did not break out. Any dispute was to be settled by peaceful methods. (As this did not function effectively, the United NationsOrganization was set up in 1945.)

A hundred years before the League of Nations was started, Rammohan had said that such an organization was necessary. If there is difference of opinion. If there is difference of opinion between two persons, they do not fight; they go to a court and accept its decision. If there is difference of opinion between two countries, their dispute must be settled without a fight. An organization is necessary to see that all nations cooperate with and help each other.
