Today is the Jayanti of Pandit Madan Mohan Malviya, aka Mahamana, founder of Benares Hindu University, nationalist, freedom fighter, thinker, social reformer. One of the greatest Indians of the modern era, and a towering personality.
It's said that Madan Mohan's father Pandit Vrajnath, a pious but poor Brahmin, prayed to God
Grant me a son, the equal of whom has not been born, nor shall be born.
