RAJA RAM MOHAN ROY

RAJA RAM MOHAN ROY

An erudite scholar, a champion of the Press and freedom of expression, a great reformer and above all, a pioneer of the national movement in India, Raja Ram Mohan Roy is known as the 'Father of the Indian Renaissance'.  He dedicated himself to the task of modernising India.  He advocated larger association of Indians in the administration, the separation of the Judiciary from the Executive, disbandment of the Standing Army and the formation of militia composed of peasants.  A great social and religious reformer and founder of the Brahmo Samaj, Raja Ram Mohan Roy also became immortal because of his advocacy of the abolition of the practice of Sati.

The portrait, painted by Atul Bose, was donated by the Government of West Bengal.
