Gopal Krishna Gokhale was born in an epoch of Indian history which formed him and which he himself lived to form in a large measure. He was born nine years after the Great Indian Uprising of 1857, also known as the First War of Indian Independence. He was a young man when the Indian National Congress was founded in 1885 to achieve India’s freedom by constitutional agitation, with the stress on the world constitutional. He died five years before Mahatma Gandhi, who looked upon him as his political guru, began his first attempt at non – violent resistance on Indian soil.

In 1858 the rule of the East India Company came to an end, and a new era began with Queen Victoria’s Proclamation of that year. The new order of things demanded new concepts, new ways of thinking and new departures in the political, social, economic and educational fields.
