New Delhi: An educationist and politician, Madan Mohan Malaviya was a tall freedom fighter and regarded as one of the finest statesmen in pre-independence India.
Mahatma Gandhi called him ‘Mahamana’ which means the noble minded and regarded him highly for his universal public acceptability across a spectrum of political leanings.
Born on 25th December 1861 in Allahabad, Pandit Malviya completed his high school from the Muir Central College which is now known as Allahabad University.
He moved to Kolkata to do his graduation and in 1893 completed his law degree. One of his major success as a lawyer was securing acquittal of many names in the Chauri Chaura case.
