    Swami Keshwanand

    The Childhood

    Swami Keshwanand (1883-1972) was a great saint, freedom fighter and social reformist of Rajasthan and Punjab in India. He was born at village Magloona in Sikar district of Rajasthan in year 1883 in a poor Dhaka gotra Jat Hindu family. His father’s name was Thakarsi and mother’s name Saran. His childhood name was Birama. Birama did not get the formal primary education, as there was no school in that desert region in those days of British Raj.

    Birama spent his childhood as a shepherd boy. At the age of five years Birama along with family left the village Magloona and moved to nearby city Ratangarh. In Ratangarh his father Thakarsi used to carry Seths (Businessman) of Ratangarh to Delhi on his camel. He lost his father at the age of 7 at Ratangarh in 1890. Birama and his mother moved from here to there in search of fodder for animals and landed at village Kelania in Sri Ganganagar district in 1897.

    The Rajasthan state was heading for the greatest famine of history. There was no vegetation left on the ground. There was no drop of water. All the animals died for want of fodder. People survived on the bark of Khejri trees and seeds of grasses. Even that also became scarce. There was nothing like governance. The ruling Samants were least bothered for the poor people. Birama’s mother Saran could not bear the natural and human calamity and died in year 1899 at village Kelania.

    Education

    The greatest famine of the history, 1899, forced Birama to leave the desert region and moved to Punjab for livelihood. He approached Mahant Kushaldas of udasi sect and expressed willingness to learn Sanskrit. Mahant Kushaldas advised that as a Jat he would not be allowed to learn Sanskrit. Birama became sanyasi (saint) to learn Sanskrit language in 1904. He got education at Sadhu Ashram Fajilka (Punjab). He learnt Hindi, Gurumukhi and Sanskrit languages at the Ashram. In year 1905 on the occasion of Prayag Kumbh Mela Mahatma Hiranandji Avadhut awarded Birama, the title of Swami Keshwanand,.

    The Freedom Fighter

    Swami Keshwanand felt the heat of Jalianwala Bagh Massacre. He started going to the meetings of Arya Samaj and was influenced by its philosophy. He had a strong desire for the upliftment of helpless poor people. He started attending the meetings of congress. He mat Khan Abdul Gaffar Khan at Ahmedabad Adhiveshan of the congress. Pandit Madan Mahan Malviya influenced him. He attended Delhi Adhiveshan of congress chaired by Madan Mahan Malviya in 1919. He joined Indian Independence Movement under the leadership of Mahatma Gandhi. For taking part in non-cooperation movement of Mahatma Gandhi he was imprisoned for two years in Ferozepur (1921-1922). The role of Swami Keshwanand became so important in freedom movement that he was appointed dictator of Ferozepur district in 1930 to conduct the freedom movement in that area. He was again arrested in 1930 but released due to Gandhi-Irvin agreement.

    The Social Reformist

    Swami Keshwanand felt that the knowledge of Hindi language is must to keep the country united and to educate the public about nationality. He started “Vedant Pushp Vatika” library in year 1911 in the Ashram with the support of funds collected in it. In 1912 he started a Sanskrit school in the Ashram. In 1916 he handed over the charge of Ashram to his guru-bhai Shyamdas

    Swami Keshwanand was a great social worker. He always remained associated with the spread of education, social and village upliftment. He was connected with the establishment of Sahitya Sadan, Abohar, Ferozepur district in Punjab (1917-1932). He started his progrrame of spreading knowledge of Hindi with a Hindi-forum in Abohar town. He founded ‘Nagari Pracharini Sabha’ institute at Abohar in 1920 that was renamed as Sahitya Sadan, Abohar.

    He started a press ‘Deepak’ at Abohar in 1933 and published material in Hindi language and got distributed to villagers either free or at a very nominal price. Sahitya Sadan, Abohar developed into an institution comparable with Shantiniketan of Ravindranath Tagore. He organized 30th All India Hindi Sahitya Sammelan at Sahitya Sadan, Abohar in 1941. He was awarded degree of “Sahitya Vachaspati” looking to his services for Hindi in 1942.

    Swami Keshwanand was connected with Gramothan Vidyapith, Sangaria (Rajasthan) (1932-1952). He was made director of Jat School Sangaria in 1932 that was just to close for want of funds. He went from village to village and to the Seths of desert region who were in Calcutta and far off places and collected funds. He became instrumental in starting hundreds of schools in the desert region. The Jat School Sangaria was renamed as Gramothan Vidyapith, Sangaria in 1948. He developed here a beautiful museum with collection of rare documents, ancient items, paintings etc. brought from various places. Large-scale plantations were done in this arid area with the help of people and students of the Institute. Gramothan Vidyapith, Sangaria had become center of inspiration for educationists from India and abroad.

    Swami Keshwanand , an orphan, illiterate, nomadic man who never got formal education in a school was the founder of more than 300 schools, 50 hostels, so many libraries, social service centers and museums. He got 100 books translated from other languages or wrote himself. With the great efforts of 11 years he got published the Book “History of Sikhs” in Hindi in 1954.

    He had deep understanding of society in the desert region. He tried all his life with full devotion to remove social evils like untouchability, child marriage, woman illiteracy, indebt ness, poverty, backwardness, intoxication, dissipation, bad customs etc. An idea about his visionary and logical thoughts can be had from the book he has published- “Maru Bhumi Seva Karya” in Hindi. In this book he has explained the peculiarities of the Desert region, identified the problems and suggested proper solutions.

    Swami Keshwanand, born in a Jat Hindu family, Sadhu of Udasi sect propagated by Srichandji, son of Sikh guru Nanakdevji, was a unique example of communal harmony. He organized celebrations in honour of Sikh, Bisnoi, Namdhari and Jain gurus. Gramothan Vidyapith, Sangaria being adjoining to Pakistan felt the heat of 1947 division of the country. He got admitted the wounded Muslims in hospitals and arranged food and shelter for them.

    Swami Keshwanand was member of Hindi Sahitya Sammelan, Allahabad. He was imprisoned several times in satyagraha movements of Mahatma Gandhi. He was presented “Abhinandan Granth” by the chief minister of Rajasthan on March 9,1958. He was first elected to the Rajya Sabha of India in 1952 and was re-elected to the House in April, 1958. He remained member of Rajya Sabha till 1964. He died on September 13,1972 at Delhi.

    Department of Posts, Government of India, has issued a commemorative postage stamp on "India's Struggle for Freedom" on Swami Keshwanand on August 15, 1999.

    Dear burdak ji,

    we all have forgotten the name of great seth chhaju ram of hissar. seth chhaju ram was born in a poor jat family but was very briliant, he migrated to calcutta and started working with the marwari seths there. he made so much progress in the business that in his times he was one of the richest man. kindly add his name too. and let me request all members to not mention every jat like present m.p. or a senior army officer or doctor or professor. greats are those who have done something very special for the society in general and for jats in perticular.

    thank u.

    vinod dhatrawal

    vinodji u r right

    dhatarwalji i do agry with u. but everyone has softcorner for someone . CH. KUMBHARAM ARYA was great leader of society & arya samaj.

  18. #18

    NO DEVILAL Please...

    I respect and appreciate that u are compiling the list of Famous JATS, but it would be not be a good idea to place names of Famous JATS like Sir CHHOTU RAM,CH. CHARAN SINGH AND ALL with Ch. Devi Lal.
    I Agree that he was a poor farmer,honest, loyal who had done lot for peasants. But don't you think that DID HE GAVE SUCH VALUES TO HIS SON AND GRAND SONS,WHO WERE THE MOST CORRUPT IN HARYANA. THEY HAVE PLAYED WITH THE FUTURE of many young minds who used to prepare for Govt. Jobs but none of them could get because yhey had no money and approach to them.
    Those near to them enjoyed , but what about the AAM INSAAN.

    So I THINK THAT WHAT DEVILAL DID FOR POOR MAN IS ALL LOST DUE TO CORRUPT GOVERNENCE BY CHAUTALA AND HIS SONS.
    IT IS FATHER'S(Ch. Devi Lal) FALIURE TO KEEP HIS SON( O.P.Chautala) and Grandson's on RIGHT PATH TO SERVE MASSES(INFACT POOR),WHO COULD NOT GIVE MORAL VALUES TO THEM. THEIR MAIN MOTIVE WAS TO CREATE WEALTH AND JUST WEALTH(WHICH IS NOT IN CRORES TODAY, BUT STILL LESS THAN BLOOD OF A COMMON HARYANA MAN.


    I am Sorry if other members of JATLAND and JAT community is hurt, but this was the plight of the masses of HARYANA.

    Thanks,

    SUMIT OHLYAN

    Well done Hamendraji !

    We have to bring up more writeups on internet about rest of the famous people.

    I am very soon going to post article on BALDEV RAM MIRDHA.

    Swami Omanandji

    Its very sad to know that many of us do not know or have forgotten Swami Omanandji.

    He sacrificed everything, almost everything for the upliftment of the Jats. A great freedom fighter, he was the founder of Jhajhar Gurukul. A man who had his own values and principles and always lived with them.

    I was lucky to get his "Aashirwad" in my only meeting with him during his last days. It was in Jaipur Golden hospital in Rohini, New Delhi where he had come for his treatment. Sadly, he could not recover and made his way to heaven soon after.

    Though I don't know much, but whatever I have heard about him from my grandfather (a regular visitor to Jhajhar Gurukul) I can only say that he really was like a father figure to all the Jats.

    Though he is not there anymore, he has left us with people who can carry on with his noble work. Couple of months after his death I visited Gurukul in Jhajhar and was amazed to see the work he had done. It was an amazing experience for me... I could feel breathing fresh as I entered there. Not to mention the "Gau doodh" (cow milk) which was served to me.

    His collection in the museum is awesome. Besides, there are many books on JATs written by him which one can find in Gurukul's library.

    I would request all the people reading this to visit that place atleast once. This way we can appreciate his work to the society.

    Regards,
    Sumit
