Description

The pioneers of all our progressive movements including that of the liberation
for women may be divided into two groups. Both the groups recognized the reactionary
and coercive character of our social institutions and customs. The enlightened liberal
Indians who were known as the reformers recognized the principle of the liberty of the
individual. They were permeated with western liberal culture and hence invoked such
jibe, ral principles as individual liberty, equality of all human beings irrespective of sex
and other distinctions, respect for the personality of the individual and others when they
attacked reactionary authoritarian hierarchic social institutions and launched social
reform movements including that of the liberation of the Indian women. As regards the
rationalist approach Ranade remarked that it was wrong to revive old institutions it they
were unable to meet new social needs. “When we are asked to revive our institutions and
customs, people seem to be very much at sea as to what it is they seem to revive”.
