Syama Prasad Mookerjee (6 July 1901 – 23 June 1953) was a great educationist and thinker as well as the founder of the Bharatiya Jana Sangh. He is still remembered as a strong nationalist and staunch patriot. Mookerjee was a worshiper of humanity in the true sense and a firm man of principles. In Parliament, he had always kept the establishment of national unity as his first goal. In his speech in the Parliament, he strongly said that “the foundation of a golden future can be laid only on the ground of national unity”. His image in Indian history is that of a person with a hardworking and combative personality, who is an ideal and a guide to many Indians even after so many years of his death. He was born on 6 July 1901 in Calcutta, Bengal Presidency, British India (now Kolkata, West Bengal, India).
