During the pre Independence era, many visionary leaders tried to reform and reshape the Indian society. Many of them tried to eradicate the wrong rituals and practices going on in many societies across India. Some devoted their time in solving the issues faced by the common mass. One such visionary leader was Gopal Krishna Gokhale. He is the founder of “Servants of indian Society” , a humanitarian organisation which was formed with a vision to promote social and human development and to overthrow British rule in India. Servants of indian society was formed on 12 June, 1905 by Gopal Krishna Gokhale. He left an organisation called ‘Deccan education society’ to form this organisation. A small group of educated Indians too were with him in the movement. The list consisted of names like Natesh Appaji Dravid, Gopal Krishna Deodhar, Surendra Nath Banerjee and Anant Patwardhan. The society hosted many events education, healthcare, against evils like untouchability, discrimination etc. Many prominent leaders of that era were also part of this movement. But this organisation’s base started shrinking after the rise of Mahatma Gandhi, who launched social reform campaigns on a large scale and became successful in attracting the youth. But, still it operates through many branches in different states of the country with its headquarter in Pune.
