Short biography of the greatest Indian freedom fighter pandit shyamaji krishnavarma who started Indian freedom movement at least 20 years before gandhiji entered in the arena of indian freedom movement. He was the first Indian who preached to resolve the issue of indian freedom by peaceful means with British and demanded swarajya at least 15 years before gandhiji. Pandit shyamaji was the first person to propagate the theory of disassociation and asked indian people to adopt the weapon of complete disassociation to drive away british from india withot bloodshed that was 15 years before gandhiji relaunched his satyagrah movement based on pandit shyamaji's theory. He was the most brave Indian freedom fighter revolutionary who challenged British imperialism and despotism living the heart of their capital in London. Pandit shyamaji was a great patriot who sacrificed all his life, name, fame, position, money and time for the freedom of his mother and lived rest of his life in exile.

PREFACE It is a shameful tragedy of the history of Indian Independence that the rightful place is not given and granted any credits to many other freedom Fighters who have sacrificed everything to achieve the cause of Indian freedom. There was a deliberate attempt of the ruling party of India after independence to highlight its two heroes only in the history and text books of Independent India. This selfish motive of the Congress Party has not only ignored other heroes of different organisation such as Pandit Shyamaji but also many belonged to their own congress party like shri Tilak, Shri Shubhashchandra Bose and Saradar Patel too. The cunning practice of Congress party continued for many decades and they almost tried to sweep all other prominent freedom fighters of India under the carpet to be forgotten for ever but some true patriots Indians and their organisation of India gradually noticed this evil intention of the perpetrator and started to educate Indians about the major role paid by other politicians, revolutionaries and agitators to free their motherland. Pandit Shyamaji Krishnavarma is one of those heroes whose name and work was deliberately supressed and eradicated by Congress party as he was very much critical of many policies of Congress and Gandhiji. So they possibly have considered Pandit Shyamaji as their foe rather than a fellow freedom fighter. The result of their selfish motive and hate people of Independent India never knew who Pandit Shyamaji Krishnavarma was! We must thank those writer and patriot social workers who kept the flame of the legend of Pandit Shyamaji burning in the storm of cunning government’s intrigue The conspiracy was on such a large scale that hardly few people where aware of him until 2003 when Pandit Shyamaji’s Asthi were brought from Genava. We consider ourselves fortunate to contribute our prime efforts in bringing those Asthis to India after 73 years and being a part of campaign to revive and propagate the memory of Pandit Shyamaji Krishnavarma. Along with our several publications and projects on a great indian freedom fighter revolutionary Pandit Shyamaji Krishnavarma, It is a great pleasure to publish this short biography for the people who are not aware of the work and sacrifice rendered by Pandit Shyamaji krishnavarma. We hope the reader will welcome this publication and pass on the words about this great hero who worked restlessly and sacrificed his life to free our motherland

LAUNCH OF THE FIRST REVOLUTIONARY FREEDOM MOVEMENT OF INDIA IN ENGLAND AND EUROPE In 1905, Shyamji embarked on his great life work for the freedom of his motherland. Shyamji’s new career began as a full -fledged political propagandist and organiser for the alignment of complete independence of India. Shyamji finally made his debut in Indian politics by publishing first issue of his English monthly “The Indian Sociologist” – an organ of freedom and of political, social and religious reform in January 1905from his address 9 Queens Wood Avenue, Highgate, now known as 60Muswell Hill Road, Highgate. This strong, powerful, realistic, ideological monthly served a great purpose in uplifting mass against British rule and created many more intellectual revolutionaries in the India and abroad to fight for the freedom of India.On the 18th February 1905, Shyamji inaugurated a new organisation called “The Indian Home Rule Society”. The first meeting held at Shyamji’s residence at Highgate and the meeting unanimously decided to found “The Indian Home Rule Society” with the object of:1) Securing Home Rule for India2) Carrying on Propaganda in England by all practical means with a view to attain the same.3) Spreading among the people of India a knowledge of freedom and national unity. As the racial prejudice barred the way to many boarding houses and hostels to Indian students, he foresaw the necessity of starting a hostel for Indian students. He bought a freehold property at 65, Cromwell Avenue, Highgate and he made an announcement of forthcoming opening of famous India House, a hostel of Indian students with living accommodation for 25 students. India House formally inaugurated on 1stJuly by Mr. H. M. Hyndman, a leader of social, democratic federation, in presence of many dignitaries, such as Dadabhai Navarojji, LalaLajpatrai, Madam Cama, Mr. Swinney (from positivist society), Mr.Quelch (the editor of Justice) and Madam Despard (Irish Republican and Suffragette). Declaring “India House” open, Mr H M Hyndman gave a most eloquent and sympathetic speech. He remarked, “As things stands, loyalty to Great Britain means treachery to India. The institution of this India house means a great step in that direction of Indian growth and Indian emancipation, and some of those who are here this afternoon may live to witness the fruits of its triumphant success.” How Prophetic words were of a great statesman! The main purpose of Shyamji Krishnavarma to open this hostel was to create great patriotic revolutionaries by implementing his ideology for the freedom of India. He succeeded in his vision and he produced the greatest revolutionaries such as Madam Bhikhaiji Cama, Sardarsinh Rana, Krantivir Vinayak Savarkar, Virendra Chattopadhyay, and Hardayalji etc. Shyamji attended the United Congress of democrats held at HolbornTown Hall on 29th July 1905, as a chief delegate of the India Home RuleSociety. Shyamji scored a tremendous personal success when he rose to move the resolution on India; he received an enthusiastic ovation from the entire conference. The newspapers Reynolds and Daily Chronicle gave remarkable coverage of his speech. Shyamji’s activities in England remained highly volcanic and inflammatory to British Government. The power of his pen shook the British Empire. He was later disbarred from inner temple and removed from the book of the society on 30th April 1909 for writing anti-British articles in Indian Sociologist. Most of the British Press were anti Shyamji and carried out outrageous allegations against him and his newspaper. He defended them boldly. The Times referred to him as the “Notorious Krishnavarma”. Many newspapers criticised liberal British people who supported Shyamji and his view. The British government became highly suspicious of him. As Shyamji realised his movements were closely watched by British Secret Services he finally decided to shift his headquarters to Paris leaving India House in charge of his disciple Vir Savarkar. He gave snap to Brirish Police and intelligenc
