The Pandita Ramabai Mukti Mission is still active today, providing housing, education, vocational training, and medical services, for many needy groups including widows, orphans, and the blind.
As Pandita Ramabai involved herself in social service, there was little family life for her.
Pandita Ramabai Sarasvati was born as Rama Dongre on 23 April 1858 in a Marathi speaking family.
She was the daughter of the Sanskrit scholar Anant Shastri Dongre, and his second wife Lakshmibai Dongre.
Husband and wife had planned to start a school for child widows, when Medhvi died in 1882.
After Medhvi's death(1882), Ramabai moved to Pune where she founded Arya Mahila Samaj (Arya Women's Society).
In an address to Lord Ripon's Education Commission, she declared with fervor, "In ninety-nine cases out of a hundred the educated men of this country are opposed to female education and the proper position of women.
Pandita Ramabai participated in the freedom movement and was one of the 10 women delegates of the Congress session of 1889.The purpose of the society was to promote the cause of women's education and deliverance from the oppression of child marriage.When in 1882 a commission was appointed by Government of India to look into education, Ramabai gave evidence before it.The theistic reformer Keshab Chandra Sen gave her a copy of the Vedas, the most sacred of all Hindu literature, and encouraged her to read them.
After the death of Srinivas in 1880, Ramabai married Bengali lawyer, Bipin Behari Medhvi.Pandita Ramabai Sarasvati (23 April 1858 – 5 April 1922) was an Indian social reformer, a champion for the emancipation of women, and a pioneer in education.She was the first woman to be accorded the titles of Pandita as a Sanskrit scholar and Sarasvati after being examined by the faculty of the University of Calcutta.The groom was a Bengali Kayastha, and so the marriage was inter-caste, and inter-regional and therefore considered inappropriate for that age.
