They came, they saw, they changed and they went away – great souls who left behind their heroic deeds that transformed the society for good. It is to these extraordinary souls that we owe much of our current society. India has been the land of rich cultural heritage and legacy. Once a conservative society, the country today is at par with the most contemporary countries and cities of the world. But much of that has been possible due to its long list of social reformers who fought relentlessly till death to bring about social justice in the country. It is to these reformers that we credit breaking away our society from the traditional jinx and opening up to new societal bliss that allowed girl education, right of women to vote, child upliftment, widow remarriage, abolishment of caste system, child-marriage, polygamy and untouchability, helping the needy and the downtrodden, and so on. Mother Teresa, Swami Vivekanand, Dr BR Ambedkar, Ishwar Chand Vidyasagar, Baba Amte, Swami Dayanand Saraswati, Raja Ram Mohan Roy, are some of the famous Indian social reformers.
