New Delhi [India]April 6 (ANI/PNN): Krantijyoti Savitrimai Phule 125th Memorial Day lecture titled – Savitrimai’s Contribution to Uplifting the Backward Classes was presented by Jai Bheem Short Video App. It was streamed live on Facebook and aired on Awaaz India TV Channel and Jai Bheem Short Video App YouTube Channel. The speaker was Professor Hari Narke, Director of the Mahatma Phule Chair of the University of Pune and an author and speaker.
Professor Hari Narke is the author of 53 books and is best known for his work on Mahatma Jyotirao Phule and Savitrimai Jyotiba Phule. He has lectured across Europe, the Middle East and Asian countries, in addition to being the most sought after speaker in India.
The live broadcast was hosted by the head of Indian channel Awaaz, Aman Kamble. The streaming began with a short clip about Savitrimai Phule and her husband, Jyotiba Phule, who established the first school for girls in 1848 at Bhide Wada in Pune. Savitribai was the director of this pioneering institution open to girls from all castes and communities. It was the first opportunity for girls from the Dalit community to go to school.
Such was the societal opposition at that time that often the ladies of Pune would throw cow dung and stones at Savitribai on his way to school, as they thought the girls going to school were anti-religious at that time. She also established a center for pregnant women, as widows giving birth were considered a stain on society. Savitribai took care of the upbringing of these so-called “unwanted children” and even adopted a child into her family.
After the death of Mahatma Jyotiba Phule, Savitrimai took over the responsibilities of Sahitya Sangram. Such was the dedication to serving the people that during the outbreak of the plague in Pune, Savitrimai immersed herself in full service to plague victims. This eventually resulted in her being diagnosed with a plague which led to the end of her life.
“There is widespread illiteracy; casteism has spread all over India, that is why we had started our work towards eradicating these evils from society, Mahatma Jyotiba Phule and Savitrimai replied to a British journalist,” was Professor Hari Narke’s first observation. . He himself was born into a poor Malian caste family in Talegaon Dhamdhere, Tal. Shirur, Dist. Pune managed to complete her education by working in a cemetery.
According to Girish Wankhede, CEO of Jai Bheem Short Video App, “At Jai Bheem App, we are very privileged that a great personality such as Professor Hari Narke has chosen our medium to talk about Savitrimai Phule’s contribution to uplifting backward classes.
