Veteran freedom fighter H.S. Doreswamy said: “Though Sudhakar Chaturvedi was born into a very conservative Brahmin household, he was a Vedic scholar and reformer who opposed untouchability. Unmarried, he adopted a Dalit boy, got him traditionally educated in Sanskrit and he grew to become a reputed bureaucrat.”


Mr. Doreswamy recalled that Mr. Chaturvedi had two brothers and both worked in social and religious reforms.

“While the eldest became a sanyasi at a very young age, another brother identified himself in the Harijan movement and Mr. Chaturvedi worked with the Arya Samaj... He was a leading light of the Arya Samaj movement in the State,” Mr. Doreswamy said.
