PREFACE TO THE SECOND SUPPLEMENT. 

The first supplement to the now famous ** Who's Who in 
India" (published by the Newul Kishore Press, Lucknow, in 
igii) appeared in June 19 12, and thanks to the patronage of 
the Ruling Chiefs, title holders and the general public it met 
with a reception which was perhaps more than it deserved. 
Ever since then our friends and patrons had been persistently 
requesting us to make the work up-to-date by bringing out 
as soon as possible an additional supplement which might 
contain the names of those who by virtue of their patriotic 
and loyal services to the country and the Government, respec- 
tively have received fresh honours or have otherwise distia- 
guished themselves during the interval. This volume is the 
result. 

I must again tender my sincere and grateful thanks to those 
who, at my request, assisted me in bringing out this work 
as without their co-operation the task would have been well 
nigh impossible. As one of the chief objects of the publi- 
cation of " Who's Who in India" (with the two Supplementary 
Volumes) is to dispel the wide-spread ignorance that prevails 
in India as well as in other countries about the notable and 
distinguished personages of the country I still rely upon my 
counti-ymen to help me in the realisation of that object by 
popularising the book as much as possible and if I succeed in 
this object even partially, as I have no doubt to do through 
the kindness of my numerous friends and patrons, I will con- 
sider my labours not to have been in vain.

SUPPLEMENT 



BAm Bahadur Shah, Rai Bahadur, Kunwar — of the 
Khairigarh estate in the District of Kheri, United Provinces, 
born in Samvat 1925 (1868 A.D.), belongs to the ruling 
family of the above estate which traces its descent from the 
Suryavanshi Rajput Kings who ruled over Ajodhia (Oudh) in 
ancient times. A detailed account of the family history will 
be found on page 88, Part IV of the principal work under Rani 
Surat Kumar of Singhai. Kunwar Bam Bahadur Shah received 
his education in the Canning College, Lucknow where, as a 
student, he had a bright career. After completing his education 
he returned to his estate where he has been helping the Rani 
in the administration ever since. He is also an Honorary 
Magistrate exercising jurisdiction within the limits of the 
Khairigarh estate situated within police circles Nighasan, 
Palia and Dhaurahra and sitting at Singhai. His services 
have been highly spoken of from time to time by Government 
Officers. Apart from his administrative capabilities, the 
Kunwar Sahib is a well-known figure in the sporting world 
of the United Provinces especially in the direction of shooting 
big game such as tiger, etc. He is wonderfully smart in 
organizing big shoots and his name has become synonymous 
with successful shooting trips. His presence of mind at 
critical moments in tiger shooting has saved many a life. 
In every public movement in support of a good cause his 
sympathies have been genuine and practical. He has a very 
wide circle of friends by whom he is held in great esteem. His 
generosity in befriending the needy and the distressed is 
well-known. On the occasion of the visit of His Royal 
Highness Prince George of Wales (now King-Emperor) to 
Lucknow, in 1906, he was introduced to the Royal personage 



2 WHO'S WHO ]N INDIA

good wishes. He has travelled extensively all over India and 
has been to Europe also ; consequently his knowledge of the 
world is very vast. In social matters, he holds the views of 
the enlightened section of the people. Not only he holds 
those views but translates them into practice whenever 
occasion demands it. In recognition of his public services the 
title of Rai Bahadur, as a personal distinction, was conferred 
on him in December, 191 1, on the occasion of the Delhi 
Durbar. Address : Singhai Estate, Kheri District, United

Raj Raghubar Singh, son of Raj Lalta Singh, is the 
present Talukdar of Bhoor Estate in the Kheri District of Oudh 
which is locally known as Jhandipurwa Estate from the place 
of the Raj's residence. The family is a branch of the 
Songarha Chowhan Rajputs so called because their remote 
ancestors some time held the impregnable fort of Sohangarh 
at Jalwar, a town in the Marwar territory. Since their migra- 
tion in the Kheri District their tribal name has been known 
as Jangra Chowhan. The first ancestor of this family who 



4 WHO'S WHO IN INDIA 

founded this Estate in the Kheri District was Akhairaj Singh, 
who came here from Ajmer side, in the time of Emperor Jehangir. 

Raj Raghubar Singh was born in 1876, and brought up 
in the Rajput style at Jhandipurwa. After receiving his educa- 
tion in Persian and Sanskrit in his own Estate he was sent to 
Lakhimpur to join the Government High School there. But 
family alTairs stood in his way inasmuch as a civil suit was 
brought against his estate by Rani Parbati Kunwar, wife of 
Raja De.bi Bakhsh Singh of Mallanpur Estate on the ground 
that she was heir to her father Raj Milat Singh and was entitled 
to succeed to his property, though evetually the case was 
settled by the Privy Council in favour of Raj Raghubar 
Singh. , ^ 

Raj Raghubar Singh is very highly connected. He him- 
self is married in the family of Kachhwaha Sirdars of Tamra 
which, in turn, is related by blood to the ruling family of Jaipur. 

The Talukdar takes delight in all manly games and hunt- 
ing pursuits, specially, tiger shooting. He recently opened an 
Ayurvedic Dispensary at Jhandipurwa for the benefit of his 
tenants and the public of the place. He takes interest in all 
public movements of the district. The Government invested 
him with the powers of an Honorary Magistrate in 1908. 
His title of '' Raj " is recognised by the Government and he 
has a seat in the Darbar. Address : Jhandipurwa. (Kheri 
District), Oudh.

grandson of the late Raja Shiva Prasad, C.S.I., upon whom the 
hereditary title of Raja was conferred by the British Govern- 
ment in 1887 for his excellent service to the British during the 
Mutiny of 1857 and afterwards. The family traces its descent 
from one Dhandal of the Pan war (Pramar Kshatriya) tribe in 
Ranthambhaur (Jaipur territory) who embraced Jain religion as

diamond to Shahjehan who conferred upon him the title of 
Rai as a personal distinction and, bringing him to Delhi, 
appointed him his mukim or jeweller. Rai Amardatt's son, 
Rai Uday Chand, married the sister of Seth Manik Chand of 
Murshidabad and when some members of the family were 
killed in the Delhi massacre by Nadir Shah, the survivors went 
to and settled at Murshidabad. Later on when some members 
of the family were arrested by Nawab Kasim Ali Khan of 
Murshidabad on account of their taking up the cause of the 
British and joining Lord Clive, one, Raja Dalchand, managed 
to escape and settled at Benares. Raja Nittyanand Prasad

6 WHO'S WHO IN INDIA 

Rao Raghuraj Singh of Barauli, Rajgarhi, in the 
Aligarh District ^ Vjiited Province s\ was born in 1873. The 
family to which he belongs claims to have descended from Raja 
Bharat of the Solar dynasty which reigned over Ajudhia in 
ancient times. Raja Nityapal, a remote ancestor of the 
family, left Ajudhia and took possession of Kathiawar in 
Gujerat but Raja Sadasen had, after some time, to leave Kathia- 
war and migrate to Benares where he founded a principality 
of his own and he and his descendants ruled over the territory 
for several centuries. They were called Katharya Rajputs as 
they had come from Kathiawar. During the Mahomedan period 
the family, owing to special deeds of loyalty, obtained from 
the Kings several jagirs and other privileges some of which 
are still enjoyed by the members. The village Madhkar 
was granted to Rajas Bhawani Singh and Harhar Singh by 
Shah Alam Ghazi. Raja Pirthi Singh, brother of Rao 
Raghuraj Singh still lives at this village. Raja Partab Singh, a 
near ancestor of the family, married the daughter of Raja Door 
and populated the town of Barauli in Sam vat 1 122 (1065 A. D.) 
when there were 1656 villages attached to it. The title of Rao 
comes from the time of Raja Pirthi Raj and is prefixed to 
the name of the eldest son. The title formed part of Rao 
Rajghuraj Singh's name as a courtesy, vide local Government 
order of 1908. In January, 19 13, this title was made hereditary.

SUPPLEMENT 7 

Appaji Rao Sitole Anklekar, c.i.e., Lieut.-Col. Amir-ul- 
umra Sardar. — The Sitoles claim descent from one of the 
Sisodia Rajput families of Udaipur which settled in the then 
province of Poona in the 15th century and enjoyed the position 
of Deshmukh and Patil there. The father of the branch of this 
family was Tammaji Sitole and his descendant, in the 6th 
generation, was Kshetroji Rao Sitole who distinguished himself 
on the field of battle in a manner that he. was awarded the 
title of Sena Hardu Sahasri and the village of Padri in 
\n2t.m jajir by Maharaja Sahu Chhatarpati of Satara in 171 1. 
Later on, for similar services, the villages of Ankali Manjri 
and Mez were granted. The family seat was removed to Ankali 
although the heads remained in service at Poona. Appaji 
Rao Sitole was born in 1874 and he received a good vernacular 
education under the supervision of his father. He was married 
to the youngest daughter of His Highness the late Maharaja 
Jivaji Rao Scindia of Gwalior. Since his marriage he has 
been assigned a perpetual annuity of a lac of rupees. He was 
appointed Private Secretary to His Highness Maharaja Sir 
Madho Rao Scindia of Gwalior in 1897. ^^ iQoo, His Highness

KusHAL Pal Singh, the Hon'ble Raja — m.a., l.l.b., 
L.L.D., PH. D. of Kotla, is the acknowledged head of the Jadav 
Rajputs in the Province of Agra. He is descended from Bijai 
Pal of the Karauli family. Raja Harkishan Das, the sixth in 
descent from Raja Tulsi Das who received from the Emperor 
Aurangzeb the title of Bahadur, acquired the villages of 
Phariha and Kotla as well as a large tract of the neighbouring 
country but most of this was lost again in 1784, when Har- 
kishan Das's son was killed in a vain effort to resist the 
advance of Scindia. Later on, Raja Ishwari Singh, the then 
representative of the family, transferred his services to 
Lord Lake who, as is well-known, retrieved the fortunes 
of the British army and inflicted a crushing defeat on 
jaswant Rao Holker. In October, 1804, Holker laid siege to 
Delhi and on the approach of Lord Lake he crossed the 
Jumna and determined to ravage the Doab with fire and 
sw^ord. Lord Lake set out in hot pursuit and it was then that 
Raja Ishwari Singh and his son Sumer Singh supplied Lord

SUPPLEMENT 9 

Lake with provisions and rendered him material assistance in 
every other way. It was acknowledged by the General in com- 
mand and by the Political Agent that the promptitude with 
which the Kotia Raj supplied provisions to the division of the 
army which surprised and cut up Holkar's force near Fategarh 
mainly contributed to the success of that brilliant enterprise. 
Lord Lake confirmed in perpetuity Raja Ishwari Singh in his 
possession as a loyal adherent of the East India Company. 
The Raja, however, failed to pay revenue and the villages were, 
in 1810, included in the ist i m?'ari sanad grsmted to Hira Singh 
of Awagarh. On the latter's death, in 1831, the property was 
once more restored to the former proprietors and permanently 
settled with Ishwari Singh's son, Sumer Singh. Raja Ishwari 
Singh's grandson, Raja Chaturbhuj Singh, died in 1845 A.D., 
his widow succeeding to the Estate. This lady Zamindar 
displayed great loyalty and devotion to the British Government 
during the dark days of the Indian Mutiny and aided the local 
officers with men and money besides furnishing supplies and 
keeping the line of communication open, especially, in the 
parganas of Ferozabad and Mustafabad. She died in 1889 
leaving the Estate to her daughter Rani Jas Kumar. As the 
latter had no child of her own she transferred the Estate to Raja 
Kushal Pal Singh in May 1905, the latter having descended 
from Raja Harkishan Das in the eldest male line. Raja 
Kushal Pal Singh attended the Coronation Durbar at Delhi 
as a Member of the Provincial Legislative Council and was 
awarded the title of Raja on the occasion of the celebration 
of- the birth-day of the King-Emperor in 19 12. He was 
born on the 15th December, 1872. He received his education 
at the Agra College where he had the good fortune of 
being placed under very capable and experienced teachers. 
He passed the B. A. degree examination of the Allahabad 
University in 1892, the M. A. Examination of the Calcutta 
University in 1893 ^^^ obtained the Bachelor of Laws degree 
of the Allahabad University in 1897. While at College he 
acquired an extensive acquaintance with the English literature 



10 WHO^S WHO IN INDIA 

and English and Indian history. He did not seriously take to 
the profession of law for which he had qualified himself but 
belonging to the leisured classes, as he did, he thought it more 
becoming to devote his energies to public duties. He is a 
trustee and a member of the Managing Committee of the Agra 
College which has now been long under non- official management 
with excellent results. He is the Vice-Chairman of the Agra 
District Board and as his numerous questions and speeches in 
the Council show, he has thoroughly mastered the details of the 
work entrusted to the District Board in the province of Agra and 
the financial and other questions connected therewith. As an 
Honorary Magistrate, he has taken an active share in the 
administration of the Criminal law in the district where he 
lives. But his chief activities lie in the improvement of 
agriculture and the condition of those engaged in it. He has 
established two village banks, several model farms and is 
the Honorary Secretary of the Agricultural Associations of 
the Mainpuriand the Agra Districts. Two of the farms which 
he has established are devoted, mainly, to the production of 
wheat and cotton, a third is intended chiefly to show commercial 
results, a fourth for the trial of new crops and a fifth in the Agra 
District for experimental purposes. The Raja has some excel- 
lent ideas on the subject of giving an agricultural education to 
village boys which he has given expression to in the speeches 
that he made in the Council from time to time. He thinks, 
and rightly too, that a purely literary education is lost on 
boys who, in their maturer years, would be engaged in 
agricultural pursuits and he thinks that nature study and 
the intelligent appreciation of village surroundings and know- 
ledge of everything about them were a much better education 
for these boys than that which is noVv actually imparted in the 
village schools. The Raja has recently started an Agricultu- 
ral School on these lines and the head of the Agricultural 
Department in the United Provinces rightly remarks that 
his department is keenly interested in the venture. Address : 
Kotla, Agra District.

Hyderabad Deccan. He was born at Ajmere on the 19th 
September, 1850, and is now 64 years of age. He belongs to 
the Loonia family of Marwadis and is a Jain by religion. 
He traces his descent as far back as 72 generations, his first 
ancestor, Hathisa, being the Diwan of the Nawab of Multan 
about 1154-55 A. D. Chandmulji, the father of Seth 
Thanmulji rendered very valuable services to the British 
Government, during the Mutiny of 1857-58 when, at great 
personal risks, he used to import treasure from Ahmedabad 
for disbursing the salaries of the British troops at Ajmere. 
He had a great inclination towards religion and liberality 
and his son has inherited these virtues from him. Seth 
Thanmulji remained at Ajmere till 187 1 when he went 
to the Kotah State and worked there under the Regent, 
Nawab FaizuUa Khan, as the officer-in-charge of 36 depart- 
ments {karkhanas). In 1875, he went to Hyderabad Deccan 
and started business as a jeweller. As fortune favoured him 
he added the business of a banker to his work and has steadily 
prospered as a result of his perseverance and honesty and 
also as a result of the fact that he is one of the very few 
jewellers in Hyderabad who can accurately make out and 
value jewellery. Continued prosperity has made Rai Bahadur 
Seth Thanmulji the owner of not only a spacious house in the 
Hyderabad Residency Bazars, but he has also acquired large 
tracts of arable land in His Hignness the Nizam's Dominions, 
the largest of such estates being at Masaipet, a station 
on the Metre Gauge Section of the Nizam's Guaranteed State 
Railways. The total acreage of his estate comes to about

a distinguished zemindar of Behar, near Calcutta. She was 
born on the i6th of November, 1892, and from her childhood 
evinced great interest in music and at the early age of eight 
could recite several pieces of religious music including 
Samaveda and Astapadi in Sanskrit. As he had no male 
child, her father devoted all his resources to the education of 
Satyabala which she received at the Bethuen College, Calcutta. 
The notation system of music which the late Maharaja 
Surrendra Mohan Tagore developed was mastered by Satya- 
bala at the age of 12 years. It was also about this time that 
her attention was first drawn to the classical Vina (an oriental 
stringed instrument) and in the course of a few years she 
learnt, almost to perfection, to manipulate this most difficult 
of musical instruments. Recently she made a tour round the 
world and gave illustrated lectures on music before several 
European, Japanese, Chinese, and American learned assem- 
blies of musicians and whenever she went her exposition of 
the subject was highly admired. In India also she gave, after 
her return from Europe, an illustrated lecture on the past 
history of the Hindu music before the Royal Society of 
Calcutta and her lecture was greatly appreciated. She has 
played before large audiences of learned ladies and gentlemen 
in Madras, Bombay, Poona, Lahore and Lucknow and her 
musical skill has been admired everywhere. She knows all 
the classical melodies of Northern and Southern India and 



56 WHO'S WHO IN INDIA 

can sing with no difficulty in Sanskrit, Persian, Hindustani, 
Gujerati, Bengali and several other local dialects of India. 
Her stock of nearly 4,000 pieces of classical music which she 
has set to notation in her own handwriting is said to be a 
model of scholarly and scientific labours. In addition to 
music, Mrs. Satyabala is passionately devoted to painting 
and some of her sketches of the scenery of the Ganges are 
delightfully vivid. She is married to Dr. U. L. Desai, ]\I.D.,

Rabindranath Tagore, Dr.— is the son of Maharshi 
Devendranath Tagore and was born 52 years ago. The Tagore 
family is one of the most ancient Bengali families. The 
poet's grandfather Prince Dwarkanath Tagore /visited England 




Dr. RABIXDRANATH TAGORE (80) 



SUPPLEMENT Si 

during Queen Victoria's reign and had a most cordial recep* 
tion at court. The members of the Maharshi's family are all 
distinguished. The eldest son Dwijendranath Tagore is a great 
philosopher and the second son was the first Indian to enter 
the Civil Service. The poet's cousins, Gogonendranath TagiDre 
and Abanindra Nath Tngore, are great artists. One of the 
Maharshi's daughters conducts the *' Bharti " magazine. The 
purity and spirituality of the poet's father's life are well-known* 
These tracts are to be found in Rabindranath Tagofe in per- 
fection and have contributed to make his poems great morai 
and spiritual forces besides being temples of beauty. His 
love of meditation and the cloistral repose and seclusion of 
his life have enabled him to perceive truths that are not visible 
to the ordinary eyes. As a boy, Dr. Rabindranath did not like 
school-life and early acquired the habit of self-education. 
His earliest poems were written when he was very young but 
they received little encouragement. He then went to 
England to study Law but came back as he did not find the 
study of Law congenial to him to any extent. Since then 
he has written various poems that have made his name 
universally known. He wrote exquisite love poetry in his 
youth. He had a great sorrow in his 35th year and after 
that his art grew deeper and became religious and philosophical. 
His patriotism and the practical bent of his genius are 
clear from his conducting a large school at Bolepur where 
the pupils, about 200 in number, are instructed in the open 
air. His recent translations of his poems into exquisite 
English prose have won for him a European reputation and in 
19 1 3, he was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature which Is 
awarded for *' the most distinguished work of an idealistic 
tendency in the field of literature," and every reader ot 
Tagore's poems can well realise how worthy he is of the great 
honor thus conferred on him. With characteristic patriotism he 
has devoted the entire prize amount of £S,ooo to the Bolepur 
School. The degree of Doctor of Literature was conferred on 
him by the Calcutta University in December, tgt^. The worki 



S2 WHO'S WHO IN INDIA 

now published in English by him are Gitanjali, the Gardener, 
the Crescent Moo7i, and the Autography of Maharshi Deven- 
dranath Tagore. Dr. Rabindranath is of a profoundly.religious 
temperament. He is very fond of singing which is his chief re- 
creation though he finds great delight in swimming and rowing 
also. He is a poet of the people; all his heroes and heroines are 
drawn from the ordinary people and their simple joys and 
sorrows are rendered for us in musical language with extra- 
ordinary insight and depth of emotion. His works again 
thrill with burning patriotism. Tagore^s Bengali style is admit- 
ted by all to be unique, full of subtlety of rythm, of untranslate- 
able delicacies of color, of metrical inventions. Another 
characteristic of his writings is the mystic element that runs 
through them — mysticism not in the sense in which Dr. Max 
Nordau took it but that of a higher type that has always been 
recognised as a golden gateway leading to the innermost 
shrine of truth. 



MOTI Lal Ghose, Babu—the Editor and Proprietor of 
the " Amrita Bazar Patrika," one of the most influential 
Indian papers in India, was born in 1847 ^" ^^^ village of Amrita 
Bazar near Jessore. He and his illustrious brother, the late 
Babu Shishir Kumar Ghose, published their paper at first in 
their native village in 1869 as a weekly. It had hardly been 
in existence for 5 months, however, when an action for 
criminal lib^l was brought by an English Deputy Magistrate 
in consequence of some sharp criticism of him in its columns. 
The brothers, though they came out victorious after a lengthy 
litigation were, however, left almost penniless. In February, 
1872, they brought out their first issue of the ''Amrita Bazar 
Patrika" as a metropolitan journal from Calcutta both in English 
and Vernacular and very soon took the front rank in Indian 
journalism. It, however, incurred again the serious displeasure 
of the Government for its unsparing criticism and the result 
was Lord Lytton's Vernacular Press Act, but it escaped from 
its grip by a very remarkable feat of journalism which created

a great sensation at the time. Immediately after the passing 
of the Act the brothers Ghose, in a single day, with the help 
of borrowed type, made their paper wholly English and there- 
by placed it beyond the jurisdiction of the Act. Since the 
retirement of Babu Shishir Kumar from public life in 1888, 
Babu Moti Lai has been editing the ''"Amrita Bazar Patrika " 
which became a daily in 1890. Babu Moti Lai Ghose is a grand 
personality in India. As a rule he works from behind and rarely 
comes to the front, yet his 'paper is one of the most potent 
factors in Indian Society and Politics. Originality, humour, 
vigor and perspecuity characterise most of his public 
writings and speeches and there are few Indian public men 
who are so well informed about the affairs of the country as he. 
Among the officials he is known as an honest and sincere 
man but an uncompromising critic of the Government. All 
the same, he has access to the highest authorities from the 
Viceroy downwards. Lord Curzon' valued his opinion though 
the Patrika attacked his policy vigorously. Lord Minto was 
so impressed with his genuine patriotism that he had agreed to 
forward his scheme for the reversal of the partition of Bengal 
which was based on the Sindh system. Of the two Bengali 
gentlemen whom Lord Hardinge consulted when releasing the 
accused in the Khulna dacoity case which evoked bitter 
criticism from the Anglo-Indian Press, Babu Moti Lai was 
one and Mr. S. P. Sinha the other. It was at the instance of 
Babu Moti Lai that Lord Carmichael, Governor of Bengal, 
was pleased to take up the sanitary and rural water supply 
question in that Presidency in right earnest and acknowledged 
this fact publicly at the Rural Water Supply Conference held 
at Darjeeling in October, 191 2. When the present King- 
Emperor visited this country in 1906 as Prince of Wales 
the only Bengali gentleman whom he did the honor of 
granting an interview was Babu Moti Lai. The private 
character of Babu Moti Lai is exemplary. He leads 
the simple life of a genuine Hindu. He has a kind and 
loving word for all. His heart bleeds for the sufferings 



84 WHO'S WHO IN INDIA 

of humanity. He is a devout Vaishnava and follower of Sri 
Chaitanya the prophet of Nadia who preadied the religion 
of love and hhakti (devotion). His motto is '* when you serve 
otherS; extinguish self, as far as that is possible and never 
seek reward and God will then bless your work." Address : 
Amrita Bazar Patrika Office, Calcutta.

Prafulla Chandra Ray, D. Sc. (Edin.) Hon. Ph.D. 
(Cal.), Hon. D. Sc. (Durham), C. I. E., Doctor — was born in 
the year 1861 in his native village Raruli, District Jessore (now 
Khulna). He was educated up to his 9th year in the H. E. 
School of the village maintained by his father, late Harish 
Chandra Ray. In 1870, his parents moved to Calcutta with 
the object of imparting the best of education to their children. 
Dr. Ray read up in the flare School till 1874 when he fell a 
victim to dysentery from which he suffered a year. This 
shattered his health and constitution to such an extent that from 
that time he has never had a day which could be said was all 
well with him. Being of a studious disposition and having a well 
equipped library at home he literally devoured the contents of it 
though suffering all the while and Dr. Ray has often been heard 
to say that it was during this one year's protracted illness 
together with another year of convalescence that he acquired 
more than he could have done in his whole University career. 
In 1876, he changed to the Albert School where he came in 
contact wdth Keshab Chandra Sen whose lectures on religion 
and morality he listened to with great attention. After 
passing the Entrance Examination from this School he 
became a student of the Metropolitan Institution as also of the 
Presidency College, Scientific Department, and attended 
lectures of Sir John Elliot and Sir Alexander Pedlar. While 
yet a student of the 4th year class Dr. Ray was preparing 
for the Gilchrist Examination and obtaining the necessary 
Scholarship in 1882 he proceeded to England at once. He 
studied in Edinburgh for 6 years devoting himself specially 
to physical science. After obtaining the B. Sc degree he 
applied himself exclusively to chemistry for which he had a 
natural taste. In 1887, he was awarded the Hope Prize 



88 WHO'S WHO IN INDIA 

Scholarship, a distinction which falls to the lot of the best 
boy of the year. He took his Doctrate in 1887 but stayed an 
additional year that he might be thoroughly imbued with the 
spirit of original investigation. In 1899 he returned to India 
and was appointed Professor of Chemistry in the Presidency 
College, Calcutta. In addition to his duties as a teacher in this 
College Dr. Ray has found great delight in the work of 
original research. In 1894 he read before the Asiatic Society 
his first paper on original research, viz,, that on Chemical 
Examination of the Indian fats and oils. In 1895 he began 
his memorable researches on mercury and nitric acid and it 
was this work which picked him out in the forefront. The 
discovery by him of mercurious nitrite, the first product of the 
action of nitric acid on mercury was spoken of in glowing 
terms not only in India and England but the German savants 
were equally surprised at the same, all the more, as distin- 
guished chemists like Peligot, Nemaun and Lang were unsuc- 
cessful in their attempts. Since then he has published some 60 
papers on the nitrites of mercury, etc., in the journal of the 
London Chemical Society. In 1904-05, he proceeded to Eng- 
land on deputation and made a " holy pilgrimage " to all the 
centres of chemical activities, renewing and sometimes making 
new acquaintances with the chief chemists of London, Man- 
chester, Leeds, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Dublin, E'aris, Berlin, 
Zurich, etc. The life of a chemist is the bare enumeration of 
his researches, but the life of this oriental savant is a little 
different. If anyone is to analyse his whole life he would be 
surprised by the most uneventful character of it but four land- 
marks stand prominent even in this life: (i) His devotion to 
the cause of science and education; (2) his labours in the bring- 
ing out of a History of the Hindu Chemistry in two volumes ; 

(3) the Bengal Chemical and Pharmaceutical works and 

(4) perhaps the sublimest of all, his charity. Address: 91, 
Upper Circular Road, Calcutta.

CHUNNIBHAI MADHAWLA.L SiRDAR, SiR, KT., C.I.E., 
Baronet, of Ahmedabad, was born in 1864. His grandfather, 
the late Runchorelal Chotalal, C.i.E., was one of the pioneers 
of trade and especially of the cotton manufacturing trade in 
Gujarat and started the first Spinning Mill in Ahmedabad nearly 
fifty years ago. This example was quickly followed by other 
capitalists and there are to-day over half a hundred cotton 
mills of various classes working in Ahmedabad. This gentle- 
man and his son Madhawlal took a very prominent part in 
the development of the city and it is but true to say that it 
owes much of its present day prosperity to their exertions. 
Sir Chunnibhai passed through the Ahmedabad High School 
and then matriculated and passed two years at College. This 
course was succeeded by a two years term at the Ahmedabad 
Spinning and Weaving Mills where he was well grounded in 
commercial matters under the personal supervision of his 
long-sighted grandfather. At a comparatively young age, he 
lost his grandfather, and his father almost at the same time, 
and the vast responsibilities of the business were thrown on 
to his shoulders ; but he was not only equal to the burdens of 
his business as a merchant and cotton spinner but was 
able also to undertake the duties of a Municipal Coun- 
cillor and to carry them out with conspicuous ability and 
credit to himself. Sir Chunnibhai was the first man in India to 
attempt the spinning of the finest variety of *' counts " from 
Egyptian cotton, and to-day he owns two of the most success- 
ful Cotton Mills in the Bombay Presidency giving employ- 
ment to over 5,000 hands. His public works are many and 
include the foundation of a Science Institute in his native city 
at a cost of Rs. 6,00,000; and a donation of Rs. 3,00,000 to 
the Runchorelal Chotalal Technical Institute. Sir Chunni- 
bhai's charities are not confined to Ahmedabad alone but 
extend to distant lands like Hardwar, Benares and Southern 
India. Among them may be mentioned the establishment 
of a High School bearing his grandfather's name at a cost of 
Rs. 75,000 and a donation of Rs. 25,000 towards the spread

the Salumbra Fire Committee, she is a regular visitor to the 
Central Jail in Poona where she teaches the 3 R's 
to female convicts. Of late, her main line of work has been 
the women's movement called the Sevasadan Society of 
Bombay of which she is the President since its commence- 
ment in 1909. She is also the President of the Poona branch 
of the Sevasadan and what is more striking is that the whole 
institution is located in her own house. Under her guidance 
this institution promises to be the foremost institution in the 
land as a women's mission of service. She, accompained by 
three other high class women workers of the Sevasadan, went to 
Palanpur in Kathiawar at the time of the great famine of 191 1- 
12 to distribute relief to the famine striken people and in 
appreciation of these and other services the Government 
granted her a Silver Kaisar-i-Hind Medal. As regards her 
literary merits she occupies a pre-eminent place among the 
authoresses of the Deccan. Among others, she has published 
a Marathi book styled "The Reminiscenses of Mr. Ranade 
and this publication has become so popular that 3 editions 
have been printed. Moreover, the book has been translated 
into Gujrati and Hindi as well. The property left to her by 
her husband is just enough for her to keep her position. Mr. 
Ranade has appointed her the sole executress of a charitable 
trust of the value of Rs. 50,000 which he created to help 
several social, religious, educational and political movements. 
Her own charities have also been many and in different 
directions. She now spends all hef time in educational, social

and philanthropic work and to no small extent are the present 
popularity and manifold activities of the Sevasadan movement 
due to this great woman who to-day occupies, by her qualities 
of head and heart, a pre-eminent position in the Deccan, 



Dhondo Keshav Karve, b.a., Professorof Mathematics, 
Fergusson College, Poona, was born in May, 1858, and educated 
at the Elphinstone College, Bombay. Professor Karve has dedi- 
cated his life to the cause of womanhood in Southern India 
and in his own words " I love that cause as I love anything.'* 
After graduating at the age of 27 he lived in Bombay for 7 
years and worked for sometime as mathematical teacher in 
the Cathedral Girls' High School and the Alexandra Native 
Girls' English Institution. At the end of 1891 when the 
mathematical teachership in the Fergusson College fell vacant 
it was offered to him by the Hon'ble Professor Gokhale 
who was his class fellow in the Elphinstone College. In 1893, 
he, then a widower, his wife having died shortly before, 
determined to inaugurate his work in the cause of the re- 
marriage of Hindu widows by himself marrying a widow. 
Eight years later, in 1901, he saw the wisdom of separating 
the two causes of women's education and widow remarriage 
and commenced to devote himself to the .former, transferring 
the management of the purely social reform cause to a friend. 
In 1907, the next step was taken by him of founding the 
Mahila Vidyalaya which was intended to be an institution 
for the encouragement of marriage at a later age than had 
been customary till then. In 19 10, again, Professor Karve 
inaugurated the movement to establish a self-denying body of 
women (chiefly widows) who were to devote their lives to the 
administration of the Mahila Vidyalaya or that part of it, at 
all events, which is intended to promote education and general 
social reform. This last body bears, in its idealism, a 
striking resemblance to and may be said to be the comple- 
ment of another body in Poona founded by the Hon'ble 
Mr. Gokhale, namely, the Servants of India Society. In the 



114 WHO'S WHO IN INDIA 

words of the Hon'ble Mr. C. H. Hill, C.S.I., I.C.S., the special 
unique character of Professor Karve lies in two very definite 
directions, firstly, there is the unadvertising, steady, personal 
devotion to the cause to which he has sacrificed so much with- 
out, in any way, proclaiming his deed from the housetops; and 
secondly, there is the very remarkable sagacity displayed by him 
in the steps by which he has sought to advance. Professor 
Karve has thus been both a pioneer and an organiser in the 
women's cause. Like all apostles he has met with difficulties, 
misunderstanding and occasional reviling, but there can be 
no doubt that he has secured a large measure of success. 
Address : : Fergusson College, Poona.

she wrote a long poem a la ' Lady of the Lake' — 1)300 lines — 
in six days and has since been the author of innumerable poems. 
Sarojini Chattopadhyaya passed the matriculation examina- 
tion of the Madras University in her 12th year and at once 
became famous throughout India. She was sent to England 
in 1895 and stayed there till 1898 studying first at King's 
College and afterwards at Girton. She returned to Hyderabad 
in September, 1898, and in December married Dr. Naidu, 
though he belonged to a different caste. Her wedded life has 
been happy and has left her ample leisure to fulfil the great 
purpose and passion of her life — the dedication of her soul to 
the services of the Muse of Poetry, She has recently appeared 
on various platforms in India and has shown rare talents 
as a stirring speaker. In Hyderabad she is a great social 
force making for harrtiony and happiness. As a woman of 
great beauty and personal charm, as a sweet toned and stirring 
speaker on public platform her life has been a brilliant 
record of rare achievement for the up-lift of India. As a 



142 WHO'S WHO IN INDIA 

poet, Mrs. Sarojini has now a world-wide reputation. The 
lyric element predominates in her verse. Her poems are 
mostly "short swallow-flight of song." Nature plays the same 
part in her poetry as it does in Tennyson's, it is a backgrpund 
for the portraiture of human emotions. Another important 
characteristic of Mrs. Sarojini's verse is the passionate love 
for her country that throbs in it. Taken all in all Mrs. 
Srojini is the most gifted poet of our century in India. 



SiVASWAMI AlYAR, B.A., B.L., C.S.I., C.I.E., the Hon'ble 
Mr. P. S. — was born in Tanjore in February, 1864. A brief 
notice of his career and his portrait have already appeared in 
the principal volume of Who's Who in India (see page 30, 
Part II). In February, 19 12, Mr. Aiyar was appointed a 
member of the Executive Council of Madras which, barring 
the membership of the India Council and the Viceroy's 
Executive Council, is the highest post that has so far been 
bestowed upon Indians. In this capacity, he has done great 
credit to himself and to the province which he represents. 
He was made a Companion of the most exalted Order of the 
Star of India in 19 12. Recreations, golf and tennis. Address : 
Sudharma, Edward Elliot's Row, Mylapur, Madras and Bombay 
House, Ootacamund. • 



Prof. Rammurti Naidu, the Indian Hercules — was 
born, in 1883, in Viraghattam — a small town, a short distance 
from Vizianagram in the Madras Presidency. Both his 
parents were of the common run of men so far as general 
physique is concerned and so the Indian Hercules, as Prof. 
Rammurti is called, did not inherit his great strength from 
them. Rammurti's schooling began when he was only 5 
years old but he did not make much progress in his studies 
often retrogressing from a higher to a 'lower form. At first, 
he was a sickly youth and suffered from asthma which, 
strange to say, was cured by (medicated) cigar smoking. 
But, from the very beginning, Rammurti showed an intense 





i^M^ 




SUPPLEMENT 143 

interest in the tales of the Hindu heroes of old and evinced 
an overpowering love for athletics. He would run and 
romp and go through the exercises prescribed by native 
wrestlers and when he became a little older he took to foreign 
gymnastics with the same avidity as he had shown for those of 
his own land. In 1896, Prof. Rammurti joined the High 
School at Vizianagram as an Honorary teacher of physical 
culture and the position afforded him ample opportunity to 
engage in manly sports and develope his physique. About 
3 years later, he discovered that his foreign exercises — his 
practice with trapeziums, rings, parallel bars, horizontal bars 
and Sandow's dumb-bells — were doing him no good. They 
produced an abnormal muscular development but no strength. 
Moreover, they called for expensive apparatus. Once his mind 
w^as made up he exclusively took to Indian gymnastics — dand^ 
baithak, w^alking in the morning and running, swimming, 
wrestling, etc. In 1902, the youngman joined the "Raja of 
Tuni Circus Company and was made the manager of the 
concern. His athletic feats interested the public and in 1903 
and 1904, he was the recipient of a number of medals. In 
1904, the company broke and Rammurti was again unengaged. 
On 27th May, 1905, he challenged Eugen Sandow who was, 
at the time, charming Madras with his dumb-bell feats. Sandow 
rejected the challenge refusing to put his strength against that 
of a mere " native " but this did not discourage Rammurti. On 
the other hand, he himself began to think of large audiences 
witnessing and applauding his own performances like those of 
the English physical culturist. In 1905, he gave his first 
exhibition in Madras under the patronage of Lord Ampthill, 
the then Governor of the Presidency. His feats won him 
instant success, for, nothing like them had ever before been 
seen anywhere in the world. In the following January, 
he repeated his performance before the present King and 
Queen who were then in India as the Prince and the Princess 
of Wales. So pleased were they with Rammurti's strength 
that they gave hini a gold medal as a token of their apprecia- 



144 WHO'S WHO IN INDIA 

tion. In 1909, he took a fast trip through some of the 
countries of the Far East and was received with acclaim 
wherever he performed. While in Malaysia, an attempt was 
made to poison him by a rival athlete but it proved futile. 
This same year, Lord and Lady Minto presented him with a 
medal and also gave him a certificate, speaking in the highest 
terms, of his interesting feats at a garden party at Barrackpur. 
In May, 19 10, he went to England where he showed his 
strength to the people from all over the world assembled 
there for the Coronation of the King-Emperor. Rammurti's 
life is a life of plain living and high thinking. For a time, he 
took meat as an essential part of his daily menu thinking 
it necessary for his health, but of late he has reverted to a 
purely vegetarian diet. He never takes alcoholic drinks 
unless medicinally. Unlike the common run of Indian 
athletes, Rammurti is a man of original ideas. When you 
question him closely as to how he is able to exhibit such 
superhuman strength he unassumingly answers '* will power 
does it." He tells you in explanation that when the 
elephant is to pass over his person or the country carts over 
his thighs and chest, or when he is to bear a huge stone on 
his person or let the motar car run over him or break the 
chain, all that he does is to concentrate his mind on the 
particular portion of his body which is to bear the brunt of 
the burden and since the mental controls the physical his 
body obeys his will and he is able to perform the feat without 
being hurt in the least. Rammurti is a great believer in. 
" pranayam " — breathing exercises and concentration of 
thought, both of which he practises regularly every day. He 
has great faith in the old institution of * Brahmacharya ' and 
advocates that Indian men should not marry until they are 
25 years old. He himself is still a celibate and wishes to 
continue to be one until the end of his sporting career. 
Rammurti not only loves his country but constantly thinks 
about its welfare. He is exceedingly unhappy because the 
physique of his countrymen is being undermined by early 



SUPPLEMENT [43 

marriage and the neglect of physical exercises. It is his 
intention to establish a college of physical culture in some 
central spot in India. With this purpose*in view he is laying 
aside a portion of his earnings and proposes to use the funds 
thus secured to found and endow this institution.

very philanthropic nature; only a short time ago he made a gift of 
three pieces of land to the Corporation at Garpar and another
