Passage

Jyot, a gardener’s son, was once invited to attend the marriage ceremony of a Brahmin friend. Since, he loved his friend sincerely, he attended the ceremony. The bridegroom was going in a procession to the house of the bride. The procession consisted of Brahmins, men, women and children. There was hardly any person from other communities. Jyot was walking along with the processionists. One orthodox Brahmin recognized him and was annoyed at the sight of a low-caste boy in the marriage procession walking along with the Brahmins. Unable to contain himself, he shouted, ‘How dare you walk along with us? You are not our equal. Get behind, otherwise go away’. Jyot felt insulted. He abandoned the procession and returned home.

He narrated the whole incident to his father with anger in his eyes but his father advised him to observe the old customs. That night Jyot could not sleep.

He thought what he could do for the equality of human beings. The caste system was deep-rooted. As lower-caste people had no education, they had accepted this mental slavery for ages. Jyot, therefore resolved to revolt against the mental slavery and to educate the lower-caste people. He became the first Indian to start a school for the untouchables and a girls’ school in Maharashtra. We recognize him today as Mahatma Phooley.
