Ram Manohar Lohia (1910-69), the man of revolutionary ideas and multi-dimensional personality never supported Marxism or Gandhism. But with the amalgamation of visionary ideas of these two, he laid the foundation of socialism, keeping in mind the present Indian Conditions.

Lohia believed that election is not a medium to capture leadership, but to express people’s universal will-power. The story of life struggle of this eminent socialist thinker has been presented in this book in an abstract form.

Author of this book, Late Indumati Kelkar started her political career with Quit India Movement in the year 1942. During her stint with freedom movement she was sent six times to jail. With Ram Manohar Lohia’s first complete and official biography and 11 Marathi books on his ideology to her credit, she has also written various famous Marathi books on Mahatma Phule, Savitri Phule, Rajmata Jijabai and Razia Sultan.

Summarisation of Lohia’s biography has been done by Shripad Krishna Kelkar, who was associated with Gandhiji in his service for the Nation. After serving eighteen months in jail in the movement of 1942, he also spent seven years in jail during Civil Disobedience Movement. He married Indumati Kelkar in 1947. He has written and edited books on Quit India and Non-Co-operation Movement and also various other books.
