Dr. Ram Manohar Lohia was born in Akbarpur in the district of Ambedkar Nagar, UP, on March 23, 1910. Hira Lal, his father, was a patriot at heart and a teacher by trade. Ram Manohar’s mother, Chanda, died while he was a child.
After placing first in his school’s metric tests, Dr. Ram Manohar Lohia went to Banaras Hindu University to finish his intermediate coursework. He completed B.A. from Calcutta University in 1929. He chose Berlin University in Germany over all other prominent educational institutions in the United Kingdom to express his disdain for British thought. He quickly picked up German and gained financial aid as a result of his excellent academic achievement.
Dr. Ram Manohar Lohia was an Indian socialist politician, renowned thinker, and notable independence fighter. He was first exposed to the Indian liberation fight when he was a child. On the death of Lokmanya Tilak, he organized a tiny ‘hartal’.
Gandhijis brilliant self-control had such an impact on him that he vowed to follow in the Mahatma’s footsteps. In 1921, he met Jawaharlal Nehru. They built a close bond over time. Lohia became interested in socialism and helped create the Congress Socialist Party in 1934.
Ram Manohar Lohia died on October 12, 1967, in New Delhi, India, at the age of 57.
