Vidyasagar: A Vast Ocean of Wisdom
Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar, a towering figure of the 19th century, was more than just an educator and social reformer. He was a boundless sea of knowledge.
Pioneer of Social Change
In the 1800s, Vidyasagar spearheaded a revolution. He relentlessly advocated for Hindu widow remarriage and played a pivotal role in reshaping societal norms.
Challenging the Status Quo
Vidyasagar’s relentless efforts didn’t stop there. He also fought against child marriage, ultimately leading to the historic Age of Consent Act in 1891, which raised the minimum age for marriage consummation.
In just a few decades, Vidyasagar left an indelible mark on Indian society, a legacy of enlightenment and reform that continues to inspire generations.
