Description of "PHOTOGRAPHIC REMINISCENCE OF PANDIT SHYAMAJI KRISHNAVARMA"
This is a photographic biography in tribute to a great revolutionary Indian freedom fighter, Pandit Shyamaji Krishnavarma. He began India’s Freedom movement in London, twenty years before Gandhiji entered into the arena of Indian Freedom movement. Due to political a conspiracy, Pandit Shyamaji’s name is not as well-known as Gandhiji. However, his sacrifice for his Motherland was far greater than any other famous Indian freedom fighters, who were exalted after Indian Independence. Pandit Shyamaji established “Indian Home Rule Society”, published “Indian Sociologist” a beacon for Indian Independence and established “India House”, a hostel for Indian students to reside in London from 1905.
He pioneered the Non-cooperation Movement, who demanded, Sampurna Swarajya, complete freedom of India twenty-four years before Gandghiji necessitated it in 1929. Pandit Shyamaji was the first person to contest against the British salt policy and called it "a grievous salt monopoly" twenty-five years before Gandhiji launched ''Salt Satyagrah'' at Dandi in 1930.
This publication is a sincere dedication by the author, to revive the memories of Pandit Shyamaji Krishnavarma, a very real but forgotten hero of Indian Independence.
About the author(s)
Hemantkumar Gajanan Padhya was born at Khattalwada, Gujarat state. He has resided in the UK for thirty-four years, promoting Indian Arts, Culture and Vedic Religion.
Mr Padhya has actively dedicated himself to research and revive the memory of Pandit Shyamaji Krishnavarma, since the Golden Jubilee year of Indian Independence. He established an organisation called, Hindu Swatantryavir Smruti Sansthanam in that year and took up the task of fulfilling the desire and last wishes of Pandit Shyamaji and his wife, to send their asthis (ashes) to Independent India. Mr Padhya has played a vital role in the process of sending the urns with the ashes of Pandit Shyamaji and his wife from Geneva, Switzerland to Mandavi, Bharat in 2003. This took place seventy-three years after Shyamji’s passing and fifty-six years after Independence of Bharat. This would not have been possible without Mr Padhya’s determination and contribution to the cause.
