We all know Albert Einstein but we don't know Bharat Ratna and great Mathematician Maharshi Karve.
Mahrashi Keshav Dhondho Karve(1858-1962) was pioneer in promoting educating windows in the time when becoming widow was next to living in hell.
He did notable work in area of
women empowerment and highly advocated widow's remarriage.
He himself married a widow and set am example.
He shared his mathematical prowess with Einstein which is barely known.
Mahrashi Karve recieved Bharat Ranta on his 100th birthday.
