Remembering Gokhale on his 154th birthday, we wish to celebrate the man who selflessly dedicated his life to the service of his country. As a tribute, we have listed out a few powerful quotes stated about him by those who had the opportunity to have met or work alongside him.


“This diamond of India, this jewel of Maharashtra, this prince of workers is taking eternal rest on funeral ground. Look at him and try to emulate him.” – Bal Gangadhar Tilak


“[The] most dangerous enemy of British rule in the country.”- Lord Harding


“Gokhale has feeling, but feeling guided and controlled by thought, and there is nothing in him which reminds us of the usual type of political agitator.”- John Maynard Keynes


“Gokhale hated foreign rule, but he did not blame all the ills from which Indian suffered on the British. He wanted her to shake off the shackles of social and economic backwardness as well as of political subjection. He wanted to turn the encounter with the Raj into an opportunity for building a secular, modern and democratic society.” – BR Nanda


“He seemed to be all I wanted as a political worker – pure as crystal, gentle as a lamb, brave as a lion, and chivalrous to a fault. It does not matter to me that he may not have been any of these things. It was enough for me that I could discover no fault in him to cavil at. He was and remains to me the most perfect man on the political field.” – Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
