Biography: Balukaka Kanitkar

The ancestors of Mr. Kanitkar held high rank in the Maharashtra cavalry. But nature never meant him for the military profession. He found the regimental duties very little to his taste. So he took to politics where he distinguished himself from other workers of promise. He is the main stay and ornament of the political workers in Maharashtra.

Freedom fighter from Maharashtra

He was born at Poona in 1886. He was educated at the Deccan College and graduated with honours in 1908. In 1909, when the land was seething with unrest he founded the Students Home. The members of this institution played a prominent role in the Mulshi Satyagraha.

His solid work in the Chinchvad village is well engraved in the memories of men. He began village uplift work too soon and has won lasting fame. He is a political sanyasi (ascetic) by effort of intellectual determination. He has sacrificed all his fortunes in Freedom's cause.

Mr.Kanitkar is speaker of note in Marathi. Often he rises into high flights of oratory. He shines without a peer in mass-suggestion. Self- possession, clearness of thought and marvelously acute logical faculty are his great merits.
